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.

The pizza was very authentic and so tasty. My girlfriend eats GF and her options were great and the vegan availability is really good.

The food was ok but nothing special. I accidentally ordered the wrong pizza and asked if it was possible to receive a new one. I apologised for my mistake and even said it was my fault. The waitress nodded along to agree it was my fault and made no attempt to rectify the situation or show some warmth to my mistake. Considering we were spending our first trip away together after the pandemic it wasn’t the romantic dinner we had hoped for.

The vegetarian options on the menu are very limited - no veggie gnocchi dishes and only one quite boring looking veggie pasta dish (spaghetti with tomato sauce).
The wine is also quite pricey at £10 for a 175ml glass.

Responded on 28 August 2021

Ciao Victoria, We are really sorry you felt disappointed about our vegetarian options, we are always happy to be flexible with our menu when possible, because everybody needs to enjoy their time with us. If only you could read what Helena says about them experience :) Please, come back to one of our restaurant and we'll make sure you'll have the experience you deserve. A presto.

Loved Rossopomodoro, this was my first time in this restaurant and I attended with my friend. Service was great and we were immediately offered drinks.

I'm vegetarian and the team were super flexible in placing my order with the kitchen with the amends I was asking for - no questions asked.

I ordered the burata pizza (which usually has ham) and replaced the ham with mushrooms. It was delicious!

10/10 would go again, thanks Rossopomodoro team

Really lovely clean setting with beautiful decor set in a very lovely part of town
The waitresses were really nice
Very attentive and quick with drinks
The main waiter who sat us down and took our order was very miserable
Didn’t feel very welcomed at first but once the other waitresses came to serve our drinks and food we felt a lot more relaxed and food over all was very nice pizza was beautiful and so was the carbonara
I would suggest re doing the menu titles just as for someone who can’t get the pronounce right on the names of the dishes it can be rather embarrassing trying to explain what they want, but over all was a really nice place to eat and I would definitely revisit

We’ve eaten several times at rosso PomoDORO but not for a couple of years. I was a little disappointed. Whilst the good was good it wasn’t AS good as it used to be. The servers were lovely and clearly work hard. Their covid protocols were good
I’d eat there again but they need to work on their food a bit.

Cheerful and bright little restaurant in a lovely spot in Covent Garden. Some outside seating. The pasta is home made and delicious. Liked the music playing. Staff were attentive. Great place for families and teens especially, good for Instagram pics.

This restaurant is in a great location. Perfect for pre theatre. The staff were very pleasant and the interior is clean and attractive. Service was very slow despite the restaurant being busy but not full. Menu was through an app on phones so difficult to read. Food was nice but very expensive for what it was and nothing was amazing. Wine by the glass was extortionate. Overall a nice experience but not quick and very pricey for pizza and pasta.

Firstly, the food was amazing, really great flavours and cooked superbly.
Unfortunately, the service massively let our experience down which was a shame as it wasn’t busy when we were there.
Also, there are only a few vegetarian dishes so there is a limited choice if you are a non meat eater - which for an Italian felt quite unusual (and was why we chose an Italian) as usually they will accommodate swapping a few non meat ingredients (and yes, we did ask)
Lovely decor outside, clean inside, just lacked ambience and menu choice.

The guy that greeted us when we arrived did not make us feel welcome and did not make us want to spend our well earned money at the restaurant. The table service from that point forward was lovely however and we really enjoyed our food.
