Luca is continuing his family’s love of food by offering an authentic Italian dining experience in an Italian Trattoria, in which the focus are simple dishes made delicious by the fresh ingredients.
In 1960 in Benevento the family opened the first Rossella, where they combined the products from their family vineyard with their love for food. This was then brought here in 1978, when they moved & opened a trattoria where Luca learned the ins and outs of a restaurant from a very young age.
It was clear to both Luca & his family that he had natural talent for cooking. So, when he was 19 years old & he chance to open his own restaurant, he took it with great excitement.
Rossella is the continuation of a family’s tradition, one is not just another customer at Rossella, but rather part of the family, its great story and its great success.

    The food and wine were great, and the service very friendly. We did wait quite a long time for our main courses however, and I was disappointed to see that my favourite dish, spaghetti alle vongole, is no longer on the menu. The noise level was quite high, but convivial, not preventing conversation at our table near the window - had we been further inside it might have been more difficult. The price was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend to others, as have done in the past.

    Hi Alison. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Rossella on Saturday last. We are sorry that you had to wait a long time for your mains, we were using a new system in the kitchen for orders and it was the first night of it so a few teething problems. We hope to have all the issues ironed out very soon. As for the Vongole - it is unfortunately a seasonal dish on our menu now. At certain times of the year the clams are very small and sandy in texture so we only have it on now when this is not the case. I hope this answers your concern. Vongole will return in the Autumn. Hope to see you soon. Regards The Rossella Team

    We booked a meal here before attending a gig at the O2 forum Kentish Town after seeing the good reviews and were not disappointed! We had a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine and the price was very reasonable! Each course was really yummy and we loved the homemade tiramisu for dessert! Service was friendly and efficient and I’d love to go back!
    RossellaResponded on 26 April 2024
    What an incredible review, thank you Zoe! We're thrilled you chose us for a pre-show meal and that everything from the food to the service exceeded your expectations. Our team was overjoyed to read your kind words, especially about the homemade tiramisu. It's always a hit! We'd love to have you back again soon to try some of our other specialties. Thanks again for the wonderful feedback. Reviews like yours keep us motivated! Rossella Team
