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.

    Having not been to Rossella for quite a few years, we were hoping it was as good as we had remembered. The one negative issue had always been the size, as it was a very long and narrow floor space, so upon arriving we were really happy to see the restaurant had expanded into the ajoining unit and was now a really bright open amd welcoming space. As for the food, service and value, this had not changed at all and was every bit as good as we had remembered! We will definitely return again very soon!

    It was a shame because the restaurant set up itself was nice. However my partner has a dog allergy & we counted 3 dogs inside within such a small restaurant even barking which really ruined the vibe and put us off our food we actually asked to be moved away from them as it was very unhygienic. The pasta was undercooked. Very disappointed. Staff were nice only good thing.
    RossellaResponded on 1 June 2024
    We are very sorry to hear this. We made the decision to make Rossella dog friendly based on many customer requests and our own love of dogs. I agree, this is not for everyone and it is quite unusual for there to be more than 1 dog in the restaurant at once and for them to be barking. We are very sorry that it ruined your evening. If you would like to give us another chance you can request 'far away from dogs' or 'dog allergy' and we will do everything we can to accomodate you. Regards The Rossella Team,.
