Rossopomodoro Chelsea

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...

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,...

The food was pretty good – food not the issue, ambience was quite good, too. To be clear, myself and brothers/cousin, we'd been out for a couple of ales, but were more than presentable; by and large we get politer after ales… didn't want to put them out, quick pizza before bed etc All was pretty good during the meal, but here was the issue: we arrived, we ordered, maitre d' was so enthusiastic almost anyone would have hired him as a manager in their business irrespective. Problem was, we thought...

Lots of interesting and authentic pizzas (including many pizza bianca- i.e. without tomato sauce- options) with well-sourced ingredients (some bearing the Slow Food emblem), cooked to perfection. Puddings all made in-house and on the spot rather than bought-in; the calde calde (freshly made doughnuts in icing sugar, with a little Nutella on the side) are heaven on earth and in themselves worth the visit. For me, this Rossopomodoro is, currently, the best pizza place in London.

We actually visited the Monmouth Street branch of this Italian chain. The decor is incredibly modern and red…very red. Indeed, you may be forgiven for thinking you had stepped into a Ferrari showroom. The food is not particularly different from other UK chains and possibly a touch more expensive but the pizzas were fresh and tasty and well cooked. A warm salad of roasted vegetables was also nicely presented but possibly a little overpriced at just under a tenner. Rosso source all their ingredients...
