Welcome to Rossopomodoro. We were born in Naples – the home of pizza – and we’ve lived and breathed Neapolitan food ever since. That’s why we truly believe you won’t find more authentic pizza than ours outside Naples. If you are running late please make sure to let us know, we'll hold your table for 15mins.

Really lovely restaurant. Great food! Service was slow though. Took an hour to get our mains order with no starters and was very loud.

They did not have the menu published on the web and this led to disappointment

Enjoyable evening, if a bit noisy. Good pizzas; friendly and reasonably prompt service; some pretty good wines. Open plan kitchen made it interesting to see the staff at work.

Went here because they have gluten free pizza. Hostess was a little snappy with us when we arrived as we were 5 minutes early for our reservation. When we were finally seated, it felt like we were sitting with the people on either side of our table. It was so close it was uncomfortable. Made it difficult to have a conversation. Food was ok. Have had much tastier gluten free pizzas. However the main reason I wouldn’t return is the lack of ambiance, the inability to have a conversation without feeling like the table beside could here every word

Despite queue our 6.30pm booking via Open Table was honoured. Excellent food & service and not rushed out after 90 mins. A bit noisy but hard to see how that cd be resolved in such a busy place.

I always have a great time here! Staff are friendly and point out the specials (which change frequently!) without trying to push them too hard. A great value for delicious Italian food in a clean, open environment.

The best things about this restaurant are the location and charming, attentive waiters. When it’s busy, as it was when we finished, it’s cramped and so noisy that you can’t hear the person sitting opposite you. The pizzas were unremarkable and my salad was soggy. Fine for a pre-theatre meal but nothing more.

Perfect Neapolitan pizzas. We also did relish Gnocchi and Bruschetta. The drinks were good too - taste and variety.
Tiramisu though was average, or rather we had better expectations.

We went to the Harry Potter play and this was only a 5 minute walk. We dined in between Part 1 and Part 2. We we're greeted with a smile and seated promptly even though we were 15 minutes early. They have a nice variety of regional food from Napoli and the wine list fits the menu offerings. My wife and daughter wanted the wood fired Margherita pizza while I had the pasta with riccota and pesto. We had the Lacryma de Christi de Vesuvio (Christ's Tears from grapes grown at the base of Mt Vesuvius). The food was prepared expertly, piping hot. We have traveled to Italy and this is truly authentic. The pizza sauce is made at the restaurant. Truly a wonderful experience.

The food & drink was amazing, as was the service, however the price was too much considering what you’d pay for the same thing in Italy as it’s almost 5 x less I obviously understand it’s always going to be more being London and having ingredients imported but easily could of been a lot less, nonetheless one of the best meals Ive had.

We've been here before with guests from America, and the place seemed like a safe bet for other friends from the USA, and so it turned out to be. The portions are tasty but not huge, so you should have some room for some tiramisu or other pudding. Everyone in the party of four was happy.

I was in this restaurant three years ago and I felt a little disappointed in my second stay by two aspects:
the first is that they had there another distribution in the upstairs floor that was very charmy, the second is that the meal was little tasty

The portions of our pasta were quite small. Also, the calamari contained squids but something else doughy and strange. They didn’t taste very nice. The manager also didn’t register or record that I had booked a table and turned up for it, even though I could see my booking on his system when we arrived.
