Rosa’s Kosher Pizza

rosas kosher pizzaRating (out of 5):

Best Kosher Pizza. Period.  Well, it comes in a close second to Pizza Sababa on Emek Rafaim in Jerusalem.  But as far as the USA is concerned however it is #1.

Situated on the first floor of the empire state building (easiest access is from 33rd street) you can expect to see a diverse crowd of patrons at this pizzeria at all business hours.

Their variety rivals that of non-kosher restaurants (minus the meat of course). At any given time you can also expect to see about 10 different kinds of pizzas on the table.  Today I went with two regular slices which were fresh from the oven and did not need reheating.  They were amazing!! The taste of the dough/sauce/cheese just has its own kind of flavor and doesn’t taste generic like most all other kosher pizzerias.  At $2.50 a slice its a much better deal than Jerusalem 2 also so why not eat better pizza and save money at the same time.  The fresh mozzarella slice however is the best slice they offer and it is amazing, I highly recommend going with it and a regular slice if it’s your first time there.  Get a side of ranch from the salad bar and dip your pizza in it – you won’t be let down at the awesomeness that will enter your mouth.

Some downsides of this place was that the counter guy was kind of a jerk and impatient with peoples ordering.  It also took a few minutes to pay which in the world of hot pizza every minute counts towards freshness.

Still – the pizza is amazing and you should definitely go there if you are ever in midtown!

PS. Like most kosher places, a dairy restaurant would not be complete with a sushi and salad bar tucked away in the corner and Rosas is no exception to the rule.  I have had a salmon avocado roll as well as a regular salad and they were both up to par and definitely a viable option if you do not feel like having pizza.

    Best Kosher Pizza? More like worst Kosher Pizza I would rather eat Mendel’s Pizza on 18th Ave. I agree when Rosa’s first opened the Pizza was good, however the owners pulled the old Switch-a-roo and replaced the cheese with lower quality cheese about 2 months after they opened. If you are looking for good kosher pizza try Bennys, Pizza time, Mike’s Italian Pizzeria and then reformulate your opinion.

    Benny’s is pretty good too (check out my review here http://www.thanksaglatt.com/2009/11/bennys-pizzeria-restaurant/ but the slices at Rosas are amazing. When was the last time you ate there? Where is Mikes and Pizza time located at I will try to visit them in the near future?

    That’s a very strong accusation from some one who has NO proof!!!! “Lower quality cheese” and “the owner pulled the old switch-a-roo-”??? bashinng the product and the owner….sounds like you are a competitor trying to hurt someone’s business….The pizza at Rosa’s is great…but don’t take my word on it, just come in and try it and you’ll be a fan for life!!
