Italian

We are a traditional family-run Trattoria in the truest sense. Inspired by our family's southern Italian origins, we have brought a slice of Italian life right to the heart of Kentish Town. Gather your friends & family and enjoy our main restaurant area or alternatively sit within our deli, full of Italian meats & cheeses. Prefer more of an Al Fresco dining experience? Then book a table in our outdoor seating area with heaters & blankets upon request.

The Interior : The new Rossella brings together all our favorite textures, patterns & colours to help us create a home from home. Rustic brick and rich green tiles will be your backdrop as you dine on our marble & wood tables. We have carefully chosen every dish, bowl and plate to ensure that Rossella always stays how it always strived to be, a true Italian authentic experience for everyone.

    Hi Tara, we are sorry to hear that your experience wasn't great. Unfortunately on the day of your visit we were short staffed and we didn't expect such an affluence of customers.

    I normally can’t fault Rossellas, but yesterday was poor. The calamari was so salty. The cod served with potatoes was over cooked/dry and the potatoes were burnt to a crisp, my knife couldn’t even cut through them. I ended up sharing my partners pizza which was nice. A little sloppy, but nice because I was so hungry.
