We love the ambience of this little cosy authentic Italian restaurant. The kitchen produces beautiful dishes, and the specials are gone quite quickly! Service with a smile a decent price too which is rare these days. Easy parking once you know how!!

Noisy but in a nice way e.g. hustle and bustle but you can still have a conversation easily.

Good food, relaxed atmosphere, value for money.

We always love coming here, dog friendly, great food, lovely staff. I knocked one star off for value only because we ordered some dishes from the specials board and they are quite pricey whereas the normal day to day menu is amazing value

Both the wife and I have been coming to Rossella for a number of years. Unfortunately it is NOT local to us, so we cannot come as often as we would like. We like the new menu, as the previous one was in use for a long while. To be fair they always have a specials board as well with around 4 starters and 4 mains available. In the past I have usually eaten from that as I like the more unusual food. This time I ate from the new 'standard' menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. So did the wife, who YET AGAIN had the mussels and a variation of stuffed chicken breast. We don't do sweets so cannot comment on those.

Welcoming efficient service in this old-style Italian restaurant. Excellent cooking, but a wood-fired pizza oven would have earned 5* Not the restaurant’s fault, but the front door was left open too often - welcoming in a cool breeze to chill the customers..... Don’t let these minor criticisms put you off. Recommended

To have one of these restaurants in your neighbourhood is a total blessing. This tiny, a bit cramped, traditional Italian eatery has everything a proper Italian trattoria should have. Really jealous we don´t live anywhere near it. All the starters we chose were fantastic (aubergine parmigiana, gamberoni, garlic bread and zucchini fritti) and the papardele with pesto rosso were also excellent. Great place, even if the service is a little slow at times.
