Do not get delivery – I have never eaten in the restaurant, however, upon reading the reviews I got take out last week. IT WAS HORRIBLE. The pizza was delivered cold and the cheese wasn't even fully melted! It looked like shredded cheese partly done - still in strips. I have eaten at many pizza places around NYC and this is hands down the worst.
The crowd-pleasing restaurateur responsible for Pacifico and Schnack delivers pizza to Smith Street. – The Scene
This old-school pizza joint, an oasis of warmth just around the corner from Atlantic Avenue's industrial chill, is owned by Brooklyn restaurant wunderkind Jim Marmary. It's packed to the rafters with vintage soft-drink signs, faded photographs and a collection of lamps made from old tin cans. Red-and-white checkerboard tablecloths deliver the final worn-in touch.
Start with the rice balls, a dense concoction of peas, pancetta and stewed tomatoes. Then order a few of the signature pizzas. Fresh toppings and basil-kissed sauce hold court on a medium-thick, flavorful crust, but stick with simpler pies, as some of the more interesting toppings, such as white-truffle oil, can easily overwhelm all other flavors. And only really serious garlic lovers should dare order the baked cheese ravioli: They don't make a breath mint strong enough to counter its aftertaste.
Recommended – The pizza was really good. Although, one night we went it was super cheesy, and another night it was less cheesy. So, a little inconsistency there but either way, both pizzas were really good. And affordable. A great addition to Smith Street: finally, a place that's not pretentious and filled with women wearing Ugg boots. Oh and it's too tiny for families with strollers. Leave the kids at home! (La Rosa is connected by a swinging door to the Mexican restaurant Pacifico).
Really good pizza – La Rosa & Son has really good thin-crust pizza... not too much cheese, nice sauce... at a great price, in a cozy spot with no attitude. Another welcome addition to the neighborhood.
