This family run establishment is very popular locally with good reason as the food is excellent and it has a charm and warmth that chain Italians can never have. Located near some excellent Pubs Rossella, formerly Ristorante Rossella, is not a place that sticks out and has a very humble exterior and interior. However on nights it is crowded with... More

This place in Kentish Town is an absolute hidden gem, don't walk past it stop and go inside. It's family run which is lovely for an Italian as the passion runs right through the business and into the food. The food is fresh, delicious and menu is vast. It very reasonable too and they do a great lunch deal in... More

We have been regulars at Rossella since its opening night, now visiting at least every two weeks. There is always a great buzz and usually the restaurant is packed. The menu is sufficiently varied for us never to get bored with its content; we have never had a dud meal. Value is exceptional (a sizeable fillet steak, with vegetables comes... More

My favorite Italian restaurant. The staff are super friendly and cannot do enough for you. The quality of food is truly excellent & arrives quickly. A meal for two, with starters, mains & two drinks will cost you no more than £30.00 which is amazing value for money considering the high level of service & how absolutely delicious the food...

We discovered Rossella completely by chance and had a wonderfull time. Both the waiters and the chef is very friendly and the food is amazing. Had a Rocca pizza and carbonara, they were both very delicious. The prices are ok as well. Will def. revisit.
