No half-half. No ham and pineapple. Only Italian mozzarella. Only Italian toppings. It might sound like you’re back in the classroom, but dining at Rosso Pomodoro is an authentic Italian experience that tops any biology lesson — the lengthy queues a sheer reflection of why. The restaurant is small and in typical Italian form can be a tad noisy.
Nonetheless, it's all about the pizzas that are reassuringly crispy and slightly blistered. We could go on and on about all the delicious pizzas at Rosso, but absolute standouts would have be the bresaola with rocket and parmesan ($22) and the calzone with salami and olives. Vegetarians will be delighted with the Funghi ($19), but it’s the Della Casa with Italian sausage, hot salami, baby spinach and parmesan that takes the cake (or pizza?).
