Business of the week: Ristorante Rossella, Kentish Town

Italian restaurant Rossella has become part of the Kentish Town community since Luca Meola opened up in 2012, aged just 19.
As Christmas draws closer, Luca and his staff are hoping to do their bit to give back to the community – they’re fundraising for local charity the Doorstep Homlessness Project.
And they’re doing it in their own inimitable way.
From today (Thu) until Saturday, they will be selling limoncello and meloncello liqueur at the knockdown price of a £1 and handing over the proceeds to the charity.
Luca told the Ham&High: “As many will know, there’s quite a lot of homelessness around Kentish Town.
You may also want to watch:
“We’ve been trying to find a way to give something back, and I didn’t want to just give some money and leave it at that, hopefully this way we’ll encourage customers to donate, too.”
“My family makes our own limoncello and meloncello – it’s really popular so seemed like a great way of doing it.”
