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.

Non era come ci aspettavamo (menu) allora ce ne siamo andati.

The ambience? Well, the worn wood cladding look looked not so much ethnically and culturally Italian “distressed” , as just plain scruffy.
The food? My salad was lettuce mega heavy. The other ingredients, as advertised, were there (probably) if one really looked for them. In particular the salmon extra (an additional £4 as I remember) was certainly not value for money. Overall, although fairly tasty, the meal seemed a lot for what it was. My desert wasn’t brilliant either, three small hard chocolate biscuit balls that defied the use of cutlery..
The service? Excellent. The staff, not to mention the customers, deserve better....

The restaurant was not busy and we were seated straightaway but we were not asked if we would like to order drinks at that time and then it was something like half an hour before anyone came to the table and we were able to order drinks. The pizza was really good so I would go back for one of those!

Very disappointing food - soggy pizzas with no care in how the toppings were placed or presented. Also, too much salt in the pizza base, we were parched for hours afterward. Salad with 99% leaves, of which 50% were stalks.

We pre-booked the table and were shown to a table but did not seem to be specifically for us as they were adjusting the settings as we sat down. Then someone came over straight away and asked if we were ready to order before we had a chance to look at the menu. They did not ask if we wanted to order any drinks. Waiters seemed very disinterested. 3 of us ordered the chicken avocado and pear salad which sounded lovely, but turned out to be a huge pile of lettuce with a very small amount of shredded chicken 3 tiny blobs of avocado and a couple of slices of pear. Very poor value.
To add insult to injury I got a rude email later in the day about not attending my booking and not bothering to cancel, and how it negatively affects the restaurant!

They cancelled us on the same day so we couldn’t find an alternative restaurant for Silvester. They should have known sooner that they would be closing the restaurant for the evening and not a few hours before.

Not very impressed with lunch. Bloody Mary’s were not seasoned well, no celery sticks or Worcestershire sauce very bland in cintrast the Pizza was far too salty. Too expensive, will not return.

We liked the decor of this restaurant within John Lewis in Oxford Street, and certainly felt as if we were in an Italian restaurant rather than in a department store.
The food was very good, especially the pizzas, which seemed to be cooked in a proper pizza oven in the middle of the restaurant.
The experience was definitely let down by the staff/service. We were quickly shown to a table, water and menus given to us, and then we waited. And waited. There seemed to be enough staff for the number of occupied tables, but no-one returned to offer us a drink until we managed to attract someone's attention. Then he swiftly took the drinks order and vanished, without checking to see if we were ready to order our food............we were! The drinks took a very long time to arrive, by which time we'd called over another member of staff to order our food.
We enjoyed the food, but this was definitely let down by the simple fact of poorly trained staff, or staff who didn't really want to be there. We saw no-one in overall charge of proceedings, just 4 or 5 waiting staff doing their own thing.
Easy to improve.

Excellent pizza and tangy Sicilian lemonade - delicious! Table overlooking Cavendish Square at lunchtime, it proved a very good venue to meet my granddaughter. Nice and buzzy but not overwhelming. Thank you.

Really nice place to eat. Although it is in John Lewis Oxford Street store you wouldn't know. We had a lovely view of a green square at the back of the store.

They forgot my broccoli and when eventually it turned up we had finished our main course. Plus, very sadly the "broccoli" looked suspiciously like spinach???
The lunchtime servers were excellent but the staff for afternoon tea were not at all friendly.
We will not be returning.

Nice meal. Gluten free pizza quite dry. Too much big chunks of raw garlic which I had to pick off.

Arrived but staff did not appear to understand that I had booked.
Table initially provided not large enough but offered another with no issue and was good. Food tasty, I think they do a good pizza!
Only grumble would be many of the staff did not speak English so we had to ask several times to various members of staff for items as some did not understand what we were asking for.

It was helpful I could book a table. A very light airy spacious restaurant with an interesting Italian menu. The staff were helpful, attentive and very friendly and seemed interested in the food and which part of Italy everything came from. I felt they were very motivated. I would meet friends there again.

We all had the lasagne which turned up luke warm. On top of that it was basically a tomato lasagne with very little meat. Only ate half. Definitely wouldn’t recommend the lasagne. The pizzas looked good on the next table though.

Hello,

The service was really good here, however that was just it.
Food was good, nothing special and the calamari starter mainly had dough balls, maybe they ran out of calamari?

I don't think it was great value for money, also I felt a bit rushed as I didn't know we had to finish eating and leave the restaurant by 8pm as the store closes then. This doesn't give a great dining experience.

Great service once again and I would t mind coming again, but I've been to the Camden one a few times and I think that one is much better.

We have eaten here about a year ago and the food was really nice but this time the menu had changed and the base had a smokey taste to it which we didn't like. I'll be honest don't think we would come again.

The menu is interesting, with many choices and seemed authentically Italian.
We chose from the Street Food section and I enjoyed a tasty mussel soup and my companion, the calamari with fritters, which she declared delicious.
Service was very friendly and professional.
I would certainly visit again and recommended Rossopomodoro to my daughter who loves Italian food.

Arrived to a very warm welcome from a member of staff who showed us to our table {which was a special request I asked for when booking} and was not disappointed with the position of the table or the view. We placed our order and enjoyed the food, the wine and the overall experience. We are both looking forward to going back very soon.
