This Fulham Road branch is one of eight Rossopomodoro venues in London. It's part of a worldwide chain now totalling more than 80 outposts, from the Middle East to Iceland and Africa.
Part of the chain's success comes from staying true to its Neapolitan roots. The pizzas - made with flour from Naples and blasted in an authentic wood-fired oven - do brisk business. Expect, too, traditional Italian pasta dishes, antipasti platters, beef carpaccio with rocket and parmesan, and plates paying homage to the hometown - think a black ink linguine with prawns and cherry tomatoes, or pappardelle with mushrooms, garden peas, speck and mascarpone.
To finish, options range from gelato, capresina and tiramisu to limoncello, grappa, Italian coffee and affogato al caffé - Neapolitan espresso with ice cream and whipped cream. The drinks list focuses on Italy, with regional Italian wines, Moretti beers, negronis and homemade limonata.
Rossopomodoro was born in Napoli in 1998 from the idea of three friends who thought that the great Neapolitan art of pizza making could be promoted and protected through both fanatic devotion to tradition as well as innovation in the service and offering a great experience with great ingredients.
We employ and train only the best pizzaiuoli from Napoli: they are real artisans, who belong to the great Italian tradition of arts and crafts, passed on from one generation to the next. As in all our restaurants, we only use authentic ingredients directly sourced from quality producers from the region of Campania. Our pizzaiuoli prepare four different types of dough every day, letting them proof and mature slowly for over 24 hours to make our Neapolitan pizza light, full of flavour and easy to digest.
Our goal is to serve the best of Napoli to our guests. We bring a slice of Napoli to London.

I am a particularly fussy pizza eater and after having tasted the traditional pizza in Naples on numerous work trips I despaired that I couldn't find anything vaguely similar in London. Hallelujah ....I have finally found Rossopomodoro in Chelsea. It might well be my new spiritual home on a Friday night.
