SquareMeal Review of Rossopomodoro Chelsea

With seven branches across London, plus sites in Kingston and Birmingham, Rossopomodoro is making a name for itself as a dependable modern Italian chain. A large, varied menu encompasses quirky street-food snacks as well as the usual roll call of antipasti, pasta and pizza. Portions are generous; a mixed bruschetta platter for £8.95 could easily feed four, with toppings such as ricotta and spicy ’nduja. Neapolitan-style pizzas from the wood-fired oven are the stars, featuring properly crispy bases and a wide selection of toppings. Never good at picking just one, we tried a trio on the Indecisa: salami and smoked mozzarella, margherita with bright Datterini tomatoes, and Italian sausage with friarielli (rapini). Mains also include gnocchi, pappardelle Bolognese and squid-ink linguine with prawns and chilli. Authentic ingredients, such as creamy buffalo mozzarella served by the half-kilo, are well sourced; only our gelato was a let-down. To drink, choose from Aperol spritzes, Birra Moretti and an all-Italian wine list.

A colleague of mine (who's Italian) has been here the last few Mondays because they show Italian films with food in a private room. He's been urging me to go, but because I don't speak Italian and don't enjoy subtitles I decided to check it out last night instead. I'm not a huge pizza fan normally (too many carbs!) but I promised I would try an ‘Authentic Neapolitan Pizza’ and I have to say it was absolutely delicious! The base was so thin and light, and the mozzarella was to die for. I went for a Massese, which had spicy salami on it. I think I have been so used to standard fast food pizzas like Dominoes that I wasn't expecting to enjoy it so much. My boyfriend had something called a Fru Fru, which he chose simply because he liked the name! His looked great, it was like three pizza toppings on one pizza, but I think mine was better! We didn't drink much because it was a school night, just a glass of wine for me, and Italian beer for him. And for desert we shared a Tiramisu, which is my favourite. It was a bit weird when it came to the table because it was covered in Nutella, but the waiter told me that that's usual, apparently Nutella is huge in Italy! So it wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it was really light and fluffy and actually, the Nutella worked! The restaurant itself is quite small, although I know there's a private dining room upstairs where they do the film nights. Because of the size, it seemed pretty packed, which gave the place a great buzzy atmosphere for a Sunday night, my only complaint is that the service was a little hurried. Not rude per se, I just got the impression that the staff were too busy for the usual chat and banter you sometimes get at family run Italians. Overall though it was a great night, and my Colleague was very ‘told you so’ when I went to work today! Will definitely be going back.

Went there for dinner with some friends and it was a nightmare. Got there at a reasonable time, 21:15. It took us 15 minutes to get a menu after being seated. We then ordered wine, and that was plonked on the table by a very rude waiter who didn't believe it was his duty to serve us. When we ordered we had to point at the menu for the waiter to understand our selection. One would expect such an establishment to have waiter who knows the menu. After all that hassle, they still got my order wrong, gave me pizza instead of a calzone, although i had clearly pointed to the right item on the menu! And when the menu came, it appeared that my friend who had ordered a mozzarella di buffola priced at 11 pounds (already quite pricey) , was actually served a special priced at an even more incredible 15.50 pounds. Now as regular customers, we though it would be reasonable to have a word with the manager. We were told that we were wrong, the pizza instead of calzone issue was my fault as I had made the mistake, and regarding the mozzarella we were told it was eaten so tough luck. We also believed the service to be poor so asked for the 18 pound service charge to be removed. We were insulted and told we were cheap. Safe to say we won't be going there again. So be warned, if you want an expensive dinner, bad service and an insult with your coffee this is the place to go.
