Rossopomodoro Review

There is no shortage of Italian restaurants in central London, especially when they’re part of a chain. How refreshing then that the third branch of Rossopomodoro (Italian for red tomato) in Covent Garden is bursting with character thanks to bright decor and friendly waiting staff, as well as standing out from its competitors with an exclusive focus on Neopolitan cuisine.

Straight from the off there is a feeling here that the chefs want you to enjoy your food. You’re surrounded by gastronomic building blocks from the Campania region such as bottles of olive oil and appealing piles of pasta. There are some choice starters for sharing, one of which is ‘a patatona’, a pan-fried potato gateau generously filled with Neopolitan salami and Provola cheese and placed on a creamy sauce which demands a plate wiped clean by a hearty chunk of bruschetta. Better still, this dish and others mean a contribution to the Slow Food movement, an eco-gastronomic organisation, further adding to the appeal of the place for a discerning foodie.

While the choice of mains is extensive and reaches beyond the usual Mediterranean suspects, first-timers will find it difficult to look beyond the pizzas. This is helped by the fact that only yards away you can see the chefs enthusiastically assembling the ingredients and then whipping them out of the oven steaming and ready to go. Two to look out for are ‘maruzzella’, where pizza and anchovies are brought together in perfect harmony, and ‘la verace’, which has some of the most flavoursome buffalo mozzarella you’ll taste outside of Italia itself.

The wine list is an all Italian line-up but has been deliberately selected to please a range of taste. If red is your colour then the Nero d’Avola is well worth a go, with a bit of kick and the pleasing taste of fruit on the palate.

One thing is for sure: Rossopomodoro means that when somebody mentions ‘Neopolitan’, dishes a lot more tasty than ice cream in three colours will come to mind.
