Restaurant Rosso – Warehouse turned restaurant

If you’re looking for pizza that emerges from the oven and retains its freshly-bakedness until it reaches your stomach, then you need to head to Rosso (at least if a pit stop in Naples, Italy, is not on your itinerary). There are some intriguing things about this restaurant:

a) It’s hard to find because there is no sign outside stating you have indeed arrived at Rosso (which also means it’s virtually impossible to stumble upon accidentally)

b) It’s very minimalist in design as it’s located in an old warehouse but still manages to look modern and chic

c) Despite it being hidden in the depths of Hardbruecke’s hipsterness, it is always packed! So much so that it used to be closed on Saturdays, which I am pretty sure is unheard of in most other cities. It’s now open on Saturdays, due to popular demand, I presume.

I’ve tried a few things on the menu but I have to say, the best choice for anyone in need of really tasty comfort food is the pizza. Actually, even in the summer I tend to opt for pizza. The list is short but most definitely sweet with Bufala featuring on the most-eaten-by-yours-truly ones. I have to admit the pizza chefs look more like college students than pizza experts; don’t let that fool you, they know how to use their wood oven and will take that smirk of your face within minutes – that of course being one of the joys of real wood ovens!
