restaurant review: rossopomodoro

Eating out is one of my favourite things to do which is why I’m going to start writing posts on places that I go to eat. I don’t know about anyone else but I usually like to know that a place is good before I spend my money there and most of my best meals have been at places that have been recommended to me. I was in Camden a week ago and visited Rossopomodoro (quite a mouthful) for lunch, which is an Italian restaurant with branches around London. I had a hangover from the night before so was in the mood for something simple. Pizza being my favourite food ever I opted for a Margherita with mushrooms. It’s woodfired so tastes authentic but has a fairly thick dough crust so is filling too. The tomato sauce used is where it’s at though, it’s so flavourful and rich and soaks into the base really nicely. My mum had the Gnocco which is potato gnocchi in a smoky cheesy tomato sauce, definitely the perfect hangover cure! Both were washed down with Chinotto Lurisia which is made from ‘an ancient fruit’, in my eyes it just tastes like a fancy version of Dr Pepper but definitely well worth trying out. The restaurant itself is really spacious and comfortable to dine in, there’s a typically Italian laid back feel and the staff are really friendly too.
