Love this small restaurant. The food is consistently excellent and the service is fantastic. My favourite restaurant outside of Italy, my husband and I love it here!

Just a wonderful place. Lovely staff. The pizzas are the best in the area, really reasonably priced. We have been lucky to live close, and are sad to be moving away. But we will be back whenever we're in London.

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.

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...More
