How does this cardboard crusted, poorly conceived lame excuse for pizza merit being called the best. It appears that folks in Cincinnati have become too used to the poor to mediocre in more aspects than just sports. You'd do better by purchasing a bargain brand frozen pizza.
A few years ago when my husband told me that we were moving to Louisville, I was crushed. Where was I going to find delicious pizza? I have to say I have yet to find a good pizza place here. Everytime I go for a visit to Northern KY, I stop for a bite to eat at LaRosa's. It is a craving that never goes away.
How can anyone rate this the best pizza in Cincinnati? The only restaurant LaRosas actually tastes good at is the one at Kings Island (where they might actually be using real cheese). Deweys, Pomidories, Adriaticos, and Papa Dinos are all hands down better than this flavorless cardboard.
people from this town don't know what good pizza is(or chili) I'm from back east and I m also italian and we wouldn't eat the pizza like la rosa's.It's sweet sauce makes me sick!! There's only one good italian place in this hole dam city ,people here think the olive garden is good italian food!
I have lived in Cincinnati my whole life and I still can't figure out what the rubber substance is on top of LaRosa's pizza. Some claim it is supposed to be cheese but the jury is still out on that. I think there are so many people out there that think because they live here they have to say it's the best...it's really not!
I never ever go through Cincy without stopping at LaRosa's. I was introduced to LaRosa's by what I thought was the ""love of my life"" although the relationship didn't work out I will always have him to thank for LaRosa's pizza...the best in Ohio!!
The sauce is too sweet and there's way too much of it! The crust is always too rubbery by the time it gets here, and the toppings aren't exactly generous. That's assuming the toppings are still on it! Usually looks like it's been transported on its side and all the toppings are in a wad at the side of the box! But, the spaghetti is good and the meatball sandwich is ok. Personal pizzas served on site are much better.
Pizza is crappy but their other food is decent considering. I've lived in Cincy 8 years and can honestly say I've only had really GOOD pizza (reminiscent of NJ) at two places. Andriatico's and Costantini's in Milford. And speaking of Costantini's, they should definitely be added on the Top 10 list as far as their pizza goes. The ambience and service is not-so-great but if you want pretty darn decent NY style pizza, give Costantini's a try!
the LaRosa's around my house is horrible. The pizza is flat, there's too much sauce, and not enough cheese or toppings. By the time it gets to my house the pizza is always cold. Also, the last 2 times they delivered, they didn't put in a bridge so all my toppings were stuck to the top of the cardboard box. Why the hell is this number 1? it should be at the bottom. For some good pizza, try Papa John's.

I moved here from Ga. two years ago and was taken to LaRosa's on 3 different occasions. The first two times I was unimpressed with the food. I found it plain and boring, but I thought maybe it was the store where I was eating. I ate at another location and it was worse. The sauce that was put on the spaghetti was burned and the meatballs were bland. The food lacks imagination
