Welcome to Rossopomodoro. We were born in Naples – the home of pizza – and we’ve lived and breathed Neapolitan food ever since. That’s why we truly believe you won’t find more authentic pizza than ours outside Naples. If you are running late please make sure to let us know, we'll hold your table for 15mins.

We booked this meal after visiting the chain on a holiday in Rome. We were both really looking forward to our booking but unfortunately we were highly disappointed.

First of all we had to wait 20 minutes for a table that we had booked. Appreciate Saturday night’s are busy, so we let this slide! Secondly the waitress took our order (food and drink) and our starters turned up before our drinks. We had to ask for our drinks again.

We ordered drinks and a jug of water. we reminded the waitress twice about the water and it never turned up. Which wasn’t really a bad thing when we noticed the waitress top up a half empty jug with fresh water and hand it to another table. Appreciate the just doesn’t get directly drunk out of, but what’s wrong with emptying the jug and replacing with fully fresh water!

It took 25minutes for our plates to be removed and for us to get the attention of the waitress to ask for the bill. When the bill came - we had a £7.99 service added to our bill! Insane. When my husband asked for this to be removed, the waitress very rudely snatched the receipt from his hands and came back with a new one.

Safe to say we won’t be returning.

Lovely, authentic pizza. A little on the pricy side but fine for the location and the quality. Three pizzas (huge, we took some away!), a salad and a bottle of delicious Prosecco was £99.
Service is fabulous-friendly, funny, helpful Italian staff.
100% recommended.

Food was not very good and overpriced. The restaurant itself was nice, and service was fine, would not return.

The food was good but expensive for what it was. £10 for standard glass of red wine? The music was blaring trance, I asked if it could be turned down but it wasn’t. The pizzas were good but not £75 good, don’t think I would go there again.

Food was a mix- pizza base and sauce was 10/10 but were barely warm and no one wants lukewarm mozzarella. The chips were so good but the carbonara had a weird aftertaste.

Service was mediocre, staff weren't rude but were so inattentive.

A shame but we wouldn't go back

Lovely food and friendly service, the reason I didn’t add another star is that the amount of olives and anchovies that I paid extra for was really disappointing! Only 4 anchovies, so a lot of the pizza was bare from topping.

Service was quick, food was average in comparison to other Italian restaurants we have been to. The place was busy and the staff did a good job getting food out quickly. Overall good, not great.

Beautiful restaurant with such a cute vibe. Went with some friends and had a great time with some really really lovely food - honestly mouth-watering and much better than the regular pizza express. The service was extremely polite and quick - our food coming in less than 15 minutes after ordering (plus the portions are just right). I will definitely be going back there asap! WORTH EVERY PENNY :)

wasn’t a bad place to eat at all but there was a lot of confusion when ordering, I ordered a pizza with buffalo mozzarella and got told they’d run out, but I later asked another waiter who said he would add it to my pizza. Half the waiters were really nice but half acted like they didn’t really want to be there. Overall tho it was a good experience the food was nice, and wasn’t too expensive.

My daughter and I had dinner here post the theatre. The food was very average, the staff not particularly polite or engaging and I think poor value with a £50 bill after 1 course each and 1 soft drink.
I wouldn’t choose to dine here again. It was convenient but not enjoyable.

Such a Bad Experience, Never Again!
We went Rossopomodoro a few times in the past and liked it.
It was a decent Italian restaurant at a reasonable price.
Today’s experience was fundamentally different.
The quality of the cooking was miserable, with very little to do with real Italian cuisine.
The service was excessively slow (1h for half cooked pasta in an over-creamy sauce) and not very friendly.
The value for money was just absent as it was overpriced.

Hi,
so sad as no HALAL option!
Also unable to add toppings to pasta or even adjust as was told they were too busy and not able to accommodate. Very, very limited menu. not much for veg or halal.

Rudy, our waiter was amazing!!! would come back just for the amazing friendly service. even the man at the entrance brought forward our reservation and was very very polite and friendly.

Bit expensive but suppose it is peak location...

Would come again for the friendly staff!
