We really enjoy Rosella which we think is one of the best restaurants in the area at this price point. The restaurant is a local Italian catering to both groups and couples and you can eat here well and at a reasonable price. On our last visit our bill came to £80 excl service for 2. This included a very nice bottle of chianti and 3 courses incl a shared pudding. Do book as it is very popular and rightly so.

A very good local Italian with high quality food. We enjoyed an excellent artichoke risotto and an unctuous mussel soup for starters. Thus was followed by a large and well cooked veal saltimbocca and grilled tuna. Portions are very generous but we still had room for a light and delicious tiramisu. Service is friendly and efficient. We drank the wine from the family vineyard which had a good balance of fruit and tannic and went well with the meal. Free water is always a nice touch. We paid c £35 a head but did order the most expensive things on the menu. Pizza and pasta are also available and we watched the chefs hand stretching the dough so we look forward to trying one!

Great food, good and friendly service . We were in |a hurry, eating quickly before a concert and were'nt let down. A lovely atmosphere, although, slightly chilly at times sitting by the door.

Really really good quick service, food is nice and well priced too considering it's near enough Highgate. It can feel cramped sometimes but it's popular for a reason, it has such a charm about it you can easily look past that. We come regularly myself and my wife and will keep doing so highly recommended!

Our first time here, we will definitely be back. Service excellent, ambience ok and got better as the evening progressed. I thought the calamari starter was a bit uninspired, but the veal main was delicious and cooked to perfection. Pasta mains were also delicious and thoroughly approved by several in our party. The desserts were also great. The pizzas are large but also looked delicious, I’ll need to try one next time. Those of us who drank wine also liked the house glass wines. Overall this made for a great evening out.

Food is good, not for a special occasion but for everyday dining it’s fine. Funny Italian waiters make the service pleasant, value is good. Prices are very good for the area. Not impress with the pasta but I’m Italian and I have great expectations. I will go back.

Rossella has delicious food, I’ve been there multiple times and whenever someone suggests going to an Italian chain, I have to steer them in the direction of Rossella. The staff are always friendly, the homemade red wine is amazing and the pizzas are delicious! Always pre book a table as it does get busy!

Rosella is busy, fairly noisy, friendly restaurant. Great service as usual. The menu is varied in price and selection and usually a good selection of specials on the board.
No it’s not the “fine dining” experience but it’s a great place to eat really good food. It’s a nice place to be and spend an hour or two.
Enjoy

I had the bruchetta which was excellent , fresh tomatoes piled on crisp fresh bread with salad. The pollo crema e fungh was tasty but not too rich and the pinot grigio complimented the meal perfectly. The staff were attentive and efficient , the owner was very friendly and made the evening so enjoyable.

We hadn't been for a few weeks as our itinerary has changed and we do not 'pass the door' anymore.
So for us it has to be pretty good for us to make a special effort to eat here.
We were not disappointed and we were pleased to see Luca the owner on this occasion.
He is always so pleasant and helpful, obviously allowing for the fact that the place may be very busy.
Rossella definitely has that 'local family' feel to it and has a good atmosphere.
We both had food from the normal menu, which has changed in recent weeks.
I also had a Peroni Special Reserve, not on the drinks menu, but put aside for me as a VIP customer.
All in all a very nice meal out at one of our favourite restaurants in London (or it's environs).

Great local restaurant with lovely fresh Italian food. This time it was a bit noisy with some big groups and service was slightly chaotic as a result. I still love it, though, and will return.

Beautiful meal! Me and a friend dined here on Saturday evening and the whole experience was perfect! The service was exceptional and very attentive. The food was very tasty and traditional. It’s safe the say that the house red wine and goats cheese starter were to die for. Overall I can’t recommend dining at this restaurant enough! We will be back. Thanks to the team at Rossellas!

My friend and I dined at Rosella before an event at the O2 Forum. The restaurant is just a few minutes walk from the venue. There was a great ambience and we were well looked after. The food was delicious! I would definitely recommend Rosella.

Lovely restaurant with great food, reasonably priced, I’ve been back twice in a week! My only criticism (which was perhaps due to being dat outside) was I feel like we were forgotten about slightly in terms of service. It was hard to get someone’s attention to get another drink etc. But overall a real gem!

As soon as you go in there, you're transported from Highgate Road to Italy! The family that run it are delightful, there is a wide ranging menu, and the service is excellent. The ambience is great too, with lots of interesting food and dtink products made on the family farm in Italy, and other Italian foods, on display on the shelves.
