We sipped on some complimentary Q water while we waited - tap water filtered thru a system that dispenses still or sparkling water on demand so the restaurant helps the environment out by not using bottled water.
And admired the tables with reclaimed wood from wine barrels
We gave the Fungi Misti pizza a whirl, advertised as mixed mushrooms, fior di latte, tallegio, fresh parsley, truffle oil. While the toppings were good and the truffle oil used for finishing wasn't used so excessively that it became a crutch...
the crust while semi-crisp, I found it a bit more chewy than the usual and enjoyed the flavours, my boyfriend felt like he was working out his jaw... perhaps the dough was overworked before being popped into the oven.
The Tonno e cipolla - advertised as san marzano tomato, fior di latte, olice oil preserved tuna, white onions, chili flake, while tasty, had the tuna pieces almost shredded onto the pizza, making them rather dried out after baking rather than luscious fatty rich chunks of tuna.
It could have used a bit more tomato sauce as the scant sauce rather than adding moisture and flavour, merely only added a bit of color.
Sadly, the pizzas fell far short of our expectations - especially since they had changed their name to reflect their new focus on their menu. Hopefully, with time and tweaking, Rosso Pizzeria can truly have pizzas we can brag about.
