Restaurant Rosso is rated by many as the top pizza joint in town, and you might agree—if you can find it, that is (there was no sign outside the entrance when we were last there). Inside a converted warehouse next to the Hardbrücke railway station, with a shabby, industrial, no-frills interior and a massive stainless-steel bar, it draws a cool, youthful crowd and is always jam-packed. The menu is primarily about simple, well-executed pastas, risottos, and other Italian staples. Still, the real crowd-pleasers here remain the thin-crust pizzas, cooked in authentic wood ovens.
