Had a wonderful meal, loved the food, amazing service, so polite and friendly. Very romantic when not too busy and uplifting atmosphere when crowded.

Had a great lunch here with my daughter. The service was excellent and the food was lovely - fresh and tasty. I couldn't finish my main - the portions were very generous. We will definitely be back soon!

This is a lovely local Italian place - they are always busy! The food is fresh, authentic, hot, and tasty. The staff are very friendly and the prices are ridiculously cheap for the quality and amount of food that you get. Would come here more often, but if you don't book in advance you often can't get a table.

I've eaten at this local restau several times. The food is tasty. Portions are big. Staples like Vongole, Spag Bog and Lasagne are reliable. Busy and bustling. Nice family who run it.

Delicious food served by very friendly staff. We made an impromptu visit without booking and we were not disappointed. Good size portions, very attractively served and the Pino Grigio was very good quality.

Despite working round the corner for two years, I'd never been Rossella, but I'll certainly come again. I've been to Italy a few times - and this is the only place in London I've been to that I felt could have been in Italy. The food was absolutely delicious. I had bruschetta starter, with peppers and tomatoes on the bread... More

Hi Jack, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review. We are really glad you enjoyed the food and the service, and what you had was our vegetarian Calzone. Filled with chargrilled aubergine, peppers & courgettes & mascopone! The tomato sauce though is our little secret! :) We look forward to seeing you again! Luca More

I often visit Rossellas with a group of friends for a working lunch. They offer a lunch menu of pizza or pasta and a drink for £7! The pizza's are huge and the pasta meals are very generous. It's a great hit with all of my colleagues. Staff are very friendly and the food is always delicious. It's advised that... More

I've been here twice now, with a few months between visits - it is close to my work and a good friend's house. It is quite small and we booked both times but they were great service-wise both for a huge birthday meal and just three of us. The food is SO good and also great portions, and is really... More

I've been in this restaurant with my girlfriend around November and we find it very nice. We said that we will come back for pizza next time because we tried just the mains like pasta and also desserts. The staff was very polite with us and they let us stay longer in the afternoon just to chill even if they... More

I return here time and again and can honeslty say its my favourite Italian in London. The food never fails to please (classic dishes are the best) and its great value for money - on one occassion 3 of us had dinner, 3 starters, 3 mains, 3 wines, 3 coffee's and desert for something like £60! Unbelivable value for the... More
