This chain of Neapolitan restaurants must be doing something right - from humble roots back in Naples it's grown into a group of more than 80 venues worldwide. There are eight now in London, including this branch, on Monmouth Street.
The chain's ethos is one that sticks to those Neapolitan roots. The food menu ranges from freshly baked breads, bruschetta and antipasti platters to salads, classic Italian pasta dishes and a house special of black ink linguine with prawns and cherry tomatoes. The stretchy, chewy pizzas are made with Neapolitan flour and given a blast in the wood-fired oven.
The wine list sticks to Italy, and most are available by the glass. There's Birra Moretti, spumanti and limonata made from Sorrento lemons, too. A short cocktail list includes rossinis, negronis, bloody marys and espresso martinis.
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.
