SquareMeal Review of Rossopomodoro Hoxton

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.
