We took a délicious 4 seasons pizza, pasta with gamberoni and a mediterranean salad; 2 expresso with vanillia ice cream (affogato) to finish. It was good and the price very reasonable. A nice adress.

We visited Rossella for the first time. The food was excellent and very good value. We all had a wonderful experience and I'd have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

I'm all for favouring smaller family owned local restaurants and have been going to Rossella over the past year but the staff are so rude and tonight was the last drop. When ordering take away from Rossella they frequently get the order wrong. You don't have to be in your face friendly but common courtesy does help. Never going back.

We shared a mixed antipasto della casa for starter,and both had the "days special"-which was... More

Charming little restaurant! The owner (Luca) is very passionate friendly and always makes everyone feel comfortable and welcome. Not like some chain restaurants where you're not even greeted. The passion of the owner is reflected in the kitchen and the food. The 'Specials' are constantly being changed Lively, busy with a very friendly atmosphere. Fast efficient service for anything you...

Thank you for a lovely review Richard! I always like to change our specials to keep it fresh every week, and as for the Meloncello, I will be sure to let my family know that it's going down so well. Thank you again and hopefully see you soon! Luca More

All the reviews seemed really good so thought would give it a try via takeaway. Order carbonara which was bland and cold. Also had the Courgette Fritti, which were also cold and soggy. All the batter had fallen off and was swimming in oil. Unfortunately most of it went into the bin. Don't think I will be trying again.

This was our second time eating at Rossella. We were so impressed the first time that we arranged a family meal. The staff were extremely accommodating, the food was delicious - really authentic - and the prices are very reasonable. We will be back. Recommended.

But this place is delicious! Both takeaway and eating in are excellent, though recommend calling for reservations on weekends. Authentic and delicious Italian, staff are lovely, wine is lovely, and consistently good food. We live in the neighbourhood and have been regular customers for 2 years. Very reasonably priced and great value for your money!

Who would have thought that heading just up through Kentish Town, past the infamous venue The Forum and further up a winding road that you would find this restaurant. After booking a trip to Rome for my girlfriends birthday I thought why not take her for a birthday meal to an Italian restaurant to continue the theme. Well, I'm going... More
