Got a take away pizza from here and really enjoyed it. Service was very quick. Only reason to give it 4 is the salami is very spicy - so if you don't like spicy food don't order it. I will Definitely return!

I have eaten here so many times I have lost count and it is worth the pilgrimage. The pizza is simply made to perfection in every detail. I cannot fault it. Time and time again. Hungry just writing about it

We live round the corner and haven't been for a while because we've got a young daughter (we don't get out as much as we used to) Rosso was every bit as good as it used to be. Still got that buzzing atmosphere, fast and attentive authentic Italian staff and equally authentic and official pizza. You can also bring your... More

Went here for a quiet date night with the partner. Antipasto platter was very fresh and the pizza was very well prepared and cooked. The dough used is not up there with some of the more well-know pizza establishments SYDNEY has to offer however certainly the best pizza in Balmain imo.

This is my local pizzeria and I feel SO lucky to have it close by. I have been coming here since it opened and the quality and service continues to be outstanding. I have recommended it to all my friends and they, like me, keep coming back ! They only use top quality ingredients (that are in season) on their... More

Dined there with a large group and expected less than amazing service which is usually the case when in a large group. However the service was great, the food above excellent and absolutely loved the quality of ingredients used. Will be back. Yum!!!!!! Oh, and don't forget to ask for the chilli oil....

If you like good pizza, this is a great place to start. Traditional offerings and taste. Can be very busy and a little noisy, but hey, that can only be a good thing as the place is busy for all the right reasons = top shelf pizza! Go, enjoy, eat.. You'll be back for more.

So if you don't need to speak to your fellow diners or if you don't need to be comfortable then this place might be for you. Rushed, hectic, blindingly noisy and poorly made food made for an expensive disappointing evening. The crust on one pizza was perfection- no criticism at all, the following 2 Pizzas were 70% totally soggy wet... More
