A little restaurant tucked away on the edge of Balmain near the docks. We could only get an early booking so we shared a packed restaurant with lots of families. Not withstanding the crowd, we were seated quickly, provided with good advice from our serving person and were eating within 10 minutes of ordering. Its BYO so we purchased a... More

Is this really the third best restaurant in the Balmain area? The bases of our pizzas were nice and crisp and very acceptable but the toppings were runny and slightly under cooked. This was not the experience we were expecting based on the reports we had read. The service was quick, attentive and professional but the noise level is very... More

My partner and I have been going here for years and despite trying the local pizza each time we travel, Rosso hands down wins the best pizza award in our books. It even beats the ones in Italy. The base is light, thin and crispy at the crusts. The toppings are always generous and fresh. You can choose a tomato... More

While visiting Port Douglas, AU, our friends told us about the RossoPomodor Pizzeria, who, I might add, knew the owners. Fortunately for us, the restaurant was only a few blocks from the White Bay Cruise Port, near Sydney, AU. We ordered the Serrano Prosciutto pizza, which was delicious to the max. I must say, I've eaten a lot of pizzas,... More

I have been there several times over the years and I always will return for the best pizza place I know! My favourite is the potato pizza and their ice creams are top as well!

I had dinner at Rossopomodoro on Friday night and it was awesome. The PIzza had a truly thin crust and was delicious we tried three pizzas which were shared between the 4 of us there and a salad also shared. The pizza with whole tomato and buffalo mozzarella was superb it is astounding how such simple ingredients can produce such... More

The pizza base is so fresh and light, the toppings are subtle but tasty. The cherry tomatoes are sweet and juice. Best of all no greasy fingers! Deliciuos! Highly recommended.

Only place to get a pizza when you live in balmain area. Had take away pizza here for the past 12 months and every time it is cooked perfectly! Favourite pizza is the prosciutto.

Down town Naples was never so close. Delicious pizza, arguably Sydney's finest, with minimalist toppings and very definite rules about no bill splitting, no half and half, no pineapple. Busy, noisy, crammed in. Wonderful.
