Rosso Pomodoro, Balmain

If you’re keen on trying real Italian pizza, Rosso Pmodoro is the place to go. This little restaurant, despite being neatly hidden away from the main road along Jackson Port, appears to be always busy and bookings are essential and quick turnaround of tables.

The interior is packed and the walls are painted bright red but what I found most interesting was “The Rules” blackboard hung on the far side of the restaurant. As I mentioned above… Real Italian pizza: no ham & pineapple (lol my favourite…), only Italian mozzarella and only Italian toppings (which really, in my opinion, reduces the variety).

Bruschetta ($13.50)

Amazing bruschetta on a pizza baseI find the most unique thing about Rosso Pomodoro is their pizza base, crispy yet not too thin.

Vegetariana ($19.00)

Who knew vegetarian pizza could taste so good! Had one of our anti-vegetarian friends digging in and asking for more!

Capricciosa – Tomato, italian mozzarella, ham, olives, mushrooms, artichokes ($19.00)

Funghi – Tomato, italian mozzarella, fresh mushrooms ($18.00)

Lots and lots and lotsssss of mushroom for all you mushroom lovers out there! But for me,  I prefer the Della Cassa pizza (below)…

Della Cassa – Italian mozzarella, italian sausages, hot salame, baby spinach, shaved parmesan ($23.00)

I don’t usually prefer anything chilli but this is a definite must! The spicy taste really helps make the simple pizza so yummy!
