Restaurant Review: Rosa’s Pizzeria: Classics Done Right

When walking down Gurley Street, there’s no shortage of places to eat. In fact, it seems like there’s a restaurant for every type of cuisine. However, one of Gurley Street’s star restaurants is a particular favorite, and that is Rosa’s Pizzeria. Rosa’s Pizzeria stands out from the rest due to its low price and quality ingredients.

Rosa’s Pizzeria is a restaurant that serves salads, sandwiches, pastas, and most importantly, pizzas. When you walk in, you’re given a warm greeting by a host and led to your table. At this point, you’ll probably notice how nicely decorated it is. The tables in the center of the room have checkered tablecloths that are used to give a patterned pop to the rest of the restaurant’s dark wood tables. The bright light and warm interior give a warm and comfy vibe. It has the comfort of a family restaurant without the noise.

I ordered a 10” pizza with pepperoni and sausage and mozzarella sticks, but if you’ve got a craving for pasta instead, I’d recommend the penne alla vodka. The wait isn’t long, even on a busy weekend. The pizza was brought out hot and pulling a slice had the satisfying effect of a long string of gooey cheese following. The mozzarella cheese was clearly fresh as it was stringy and elastic. As for the meats, both the sausage and pepperoni were juicy and high quality. Something even better than the food is the prices, their biggest build your own pizza, the 18” pizza, will only set you back $17.99 and the average appetizer would cost you $10.99.

Rosa’s Pizzeria is open from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm Sunday through Thursday and from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm Friday and Saturday.
