“Great Italian food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A great place to meet up with friends for a casual meal or to celebrate a special occassion. We attended a 50th birthday lunch on a Saturday afternoon, the atmosphere was relaxed and easy going, the service was good and the food was plentiful. The choice of pizza's is very diverse and the portions are generous to say the least. They offer a half and half option on pizza's so you can order two different pizza's on one plate. This is definitely a favourite for locals and everyone seems to know each other (obviously the place to be seen).

“Isobel”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

From the pasta to the pizza, Osteria Rossa is one of the best places for Italian food. Try the Tagliata, which is one of the specialities, for a non pizza/pasta meal.

“Yummy square pizza”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

One of the best pizzas around! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, they will not be disappointed. There's a lovely cozy atmosphere. If you are going to eat after 7pm, be sure to make a booking, especially if you want to sit inside. Enjoy :)

“The pizza king”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Ezio is the ever attentive owner of this busy eatery which is buzzing on every day of the week. On a Friday or Saturday be sure to book. It's popularity amongst the Italian community is testament to the quality of the food.
