Thick sliced pizza by the slice popular with Georgia State students and downtown office workers. The line can get long but it moves quickly
Little Italy In Downtown ATL! – Everyone knows when you go to NYC, you go to Little Italy for homestyle pizza and Mama's other favorites. When you are in DT-ATL, do yourself a favor, and get in line, at this hole-in-the wall. When you finally get inside to place your order at the counter, you will think you are in Little Italy. Just the best NYC pizza this side of the Mason-Dixon line! Crispy slices the way you like. My favorite is a variation of a slice, called a Sausage Roll. Italian sausage, cheese, peppers, onions, and sauce rolled-up in pizza dough and baked. One of my all time favorite sand/pizza items anywhere.
Get your food and head outside to one of the many tables on the sidewalk. Students, businessmen, office workers, and any one else wanting a taste of The Big Apple!
Only good if you like New York pizza... – Rosa's is the closet pizza to NYC pizza in Atlanta. The crust is harder, the toppings fresh, and the slices large. It's also greasy, and flavorful! I highly recommend Rosa's to anyone from the north.
What do these guys know? – Just want to place a rebuttle against those guys who wrote bad reviews about Rosa's. Being from an area where a good pie means something.... Just gotta say that those bad reviews come from people who wouldn't know a good pizza if it slapped them upside the head! Rosa's is the best in Atlanta. No doubt! Any New Yorkers, Bostonion, or anyone else from the northeast who is dying for a good pizza needs to know that Atlanta does, in fact, have one good pizzaria. If you think I'm wrong, check out the lines out the door everyday. It's the only real pizza town. ENJOY!
Nothing Special – So I read, from the many reviews, that Rosa's is the best. So, being the pizza fanatic I am, I tried it. It was nothing great. I'm from the midwest, and we have pizza chains in our malls like Luca Pizza, Pizza di Roma, and Enzo's pizza, which are all VERY similar to Rosa; plus, they're not served to you by a hairy fat guy.
The place is very dirty, old, and could benefit from some remodeling if they do the business they claim. It's good pizza, but it isn't great pizza. I've had many extremely similar; Sbarro comes to mind.
Oh yah, and someone mentioned something about the grease. It's called New York Style.....eat pizza much?
Grease Dough – My co-workers LOVE Rosa's, so when I first came to work downtown, I was constantly dragged to the area to get some of the coveted pizza. At first, I went along with it - and one day I realized what the problem was - the stuff is LOADED with grease. I could put a whole stack of napkins on top of it and STILL have grease dripping off. Never attempt to order a pizza and take back to the office, the lid stuck to the top of the pizza - the grease was like a magnet to the box top and it was OVER!
Rosa's – The BEST in Atlanta! Those people have it together. Thanks be to God that they come down I-75 everyday to make delicious food at reasonable prices for everyone downtown Atlanta.
The preferred pizza joint for the downtown lunch crew. – The Scene
Atlanta's lunch-focused Fairlie-Poplar district draws crowds to Rosa's. The less-than-$5 meals certainly attract Georgia State students, bike messengers and business folk to the no-frills counter, but it's the authentic New York-style pizza that makes this place a lunchtime standard. Lines quickly wrap outside the small storefront and brisk pizza pushers keep things moving, but getting a table during lunch rush hours can be near impossible.
Rosa's brings the secrets of genuine New York pizza to the South. Generous mounds of fresh meats, veggies and a healthy layer of mozzarella top each slice. The golden crust--crispy on the outside, doughy on the inside--seals the deal. For heavenly--and heavier--eating, add the spicy sausage. Non-pizza entrees are just as filling. Calzones tend to be doughy, so opt instead for a hearty meatball sub or a hefty portion of lasagna, covered with garlicky meat sauce.
Best Pizza Ever! – Rosa's pizza is simply fantastic. You must get the in-store slices for the best deal (so they remain hot and crispy). Worth the often longer-than-20-person line. This stuff is pizza from heaven.
Wow! – It is above and beyond all of the rest---Words cant describe the delicious taste of the homemade sauce and dough!!! If you have never experienced Rosa's pizza--Well, I gotta say you are missing out! I guess these Georgia people have never had the real NY thing!
THANK YOU ROSA'S!!! – I am a True Pizza lover from the North and after going from pizza place to pizza place I finally found a true New York Pizza shop. It has it all. It's a small mom and pops restaurant that provide the BEST biggest Pizzas I have found since I have been in the ATL. Dont be fooled by those large chains and fancy pizza restaurans cause they do NOT compare to Rosa's at all.
