We’ve been to Rossella on a number of occasions and it is always a pleasure. Friendly service, reasonably priced and a lovely family atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

Went out for a meal and I had a Napoli pizza and the other person had bolognese. Pizza was good but could of done with being cooked for longer. Pasta was nothing special, but seemed as if it was microwaved, as was piping hot which only really happens when you microwave. A real shame as they used to be a high quality local Italian, but seems like they’ve cut down on quality and focused more on take profits and more orders. Last time I went had to wait 40 mins for a pizza, which was probably due to the amount of take away orders they are doing. Will not be going back in a hurry, unless they do change.

we shared an Aubergine parmagana as an appetiser and I had a divine Veal escalope with an amazing brandy sauce and a bottle of Barbera - better than being in Italy (at the moment) - try the Veal!

Delicious pasta, served quickly as we were heading out to the theatre. We were the only ones in there because it was so early but I have peeped in on other nights and the atmosphere looks great and buzzy. Server was friendly, and very helpful in ensuring we were served quickly and left on time for our show. Will definitely return for a more leisurely evening.

Good Italian food in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere at a reasonable price. Tables are little close together so it's not the place for an intimate or private chat, but excellent for any other occasion.

I and my family have been regulars at Rossella since it opened, we have also enjoyed take away meals on a regular basis.

Eating there is always a special experience and the owner Luca has become a personal friend.

I look forward to many more great meals there.

Been to Rossella before and enjoy it every time. The food is divine and the service is so good they are attending to you as you walk in the door. It is a lovely atmosphere as the size is quite small but roomy. I will be going back again soon as one of our guests could not make it and is now wanting me to book again soon.

We booked last minute but were lucky enough to get a table in this lovely little restaurant.
Service was prompt and friendly.
The atmosphere was great too, not quiet but not overly loud either.
I had a pizza which was perfect and my girlfriend had one of the specials which she loved.
We shared a tiramisu which was delicious followed by the best coffee I’d had in a long time.
I’d have no hesitation in recommending Rosella’s to anyone that likes authentic Italian food.

Had visited once before and the owner could not have done more for us. One of our party has serious dietary problems and the staff made sure she was catered for. On this occasion we were rushed through as quickly as possible, the staff made little effort to cater for our friend with the food allergies -would not even change broccoli for zucchini. Asked if they could ring for a taxi ,without either trying just said there would not be one for half an hour. On the plus side starters and pizzas excellent.

Our favourite restaurant ever, we don’t go anywhere else! Rosella never fails to impress, the food is divine. The staff are always friendly and approachable, they value their customers and are happy to accommodate our needs. The value for money is outstanding and would recommend to anyone. The best independent family run restaurant around. Perfect food at a perfect price! Wether us a special occasion, or just a casual dinner is ambience is just right. Make sure you book in advance as they are always full!

This is one of several reviews we have of Rosella a neighbourhood Italian restaurant near Kentish Town. We like the atmosphere, prices are sensible for the quality of food and service is friendly though on our last 2 visits we have been served the wrong main dish and a replacement salmon with pasta was poor. We should really have sent it back. I hope this proves to be a minor hiccup and normal service is restored on our next visit. My advice is to book.

We came here with our friends before going to a gig at the O2 Forum. Before booking I read the reviews of other diners, which were impressive on all levels and so we were looking forward to coming. We were not dissapointed and our expectations . The food was exceptional, but not overpriced. We loved the relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere and approach ofthe satff.
