This pizza tastes like cardboard with some sauce. I grew up on the East Coast and was in the midwest for 3 years. Everytime they ordered LaRosa's, I ordered something else. Horrible.
Pizza at LaRosa's is a consistant experience - for thirty years in Cincinnati this has been the poorest excuse for a pizza! The sauce is too sweet, the crust is tasteless, and the toppings can be counted on one hand on a large pizza! If you order a large pizza with anchovies, you get three anchovies. Certainly if you order anchovies, you must like them! LaRosa's is suppoesed to be Italian. You would think you could get garlic - either roasted or minced. Not even a choice!
Don't comment about anything because the typical waiter will immediately answer - its not my fault.
Only bright side is they do support their neighborhood schools and youth programs. I am just thankful my kids are grown and I no longer have to support LaRosa's!

At one time this was the best pizza in town. The last 6 months or so the quality has declined along with the amount of time the pizza spends in the oven. Consistently undercooked and limited toppings!!
LAROSA'S PIZZA IS GOOD IF YOU ARE A BIG FAN OF CHEESE AND JUST TOPPINGS PERIOD WHICH I AM!!!!!!! I AM A HUGE FAN OF CRUST BUT LAROSA'S HAS THE BEST PIZZA WITH NO CRUST!!!
The first time I eat Buddy LaRosa Pizza was downtown before a Red's game that my grandfather Bill O'Brien was taking me to go see at Crossley Field before the Riverfront Stadium was built. The pizza had me hooked and I have always had LaRosa's Pizza for my pizza since that day.
Extremely overpriced, charges for delivery, and overall crappy pizza. Cheese falls off all at once, too much sauce. If Larosa's opened a restaurant outside of Cinci, it would fail after 6 months.
LaRosa's is at best a horrible attempt at good pizza. For those who want a good pizza try the Italianette. Located in Silverton near the corner of Plainfield Rd and Montgomery Rd this neighborhood pizza parlor makes great tasting pizzas, sandwiches, salads, and pasta's. There are also a few extra menu items you might not find at most pizza places such as pizza box nacho's and the taco bread bowl. Try Italianette and you'll never want LaRosa's again.
La Rosas is good pizza don't get me wrong but this is simply good assembly line pizza. To get a real pizza you have to get outside the chain restraunts. The best in the Cincinnati area (In my opinion) is Chester's in Hamilton Ohio. Unfortunately you ahve to carry it home as they do not have anywhere to dine in as they closed their sit down chain in Fairfield several years ago. But for taste and consistent quality Chester's is still the best.
There are no good pizza joints in Cincinnati. LaRosa's tastes like ketchup on biscuit dough. If you are in Cincy and want a good pizza, you're out of luck. The best pizza I had when I lived there was DiGiorno. In fact, the local paper had a blind taste test of pizzas in the area, and slipped a frozen pizza into the test. Guess which won; the frozen pizza.
It's worth the drive from Dayton. Hit a few places for fun with friends, or start here first. The food has been always been consistently delicious (at least since 1984). My fave is the hand-tossed pizza; all of the pastas are robust in flavors.
I will miss it very much when I move to Arizona.

With the consistancy of wet newspaper, LaRosa's is as bland and tasteless as pizza can possibly be. You would do better by making yourself a nice grilled cheese sandwich and why this chain (the crust is pre-made and the ingredients arrive to the 'resturant' already prepared, in large plastic bags) remains so popular in Cincy is a mystery to this life-long resident.

I just wish they would open a LaRosa's in Lawrenceburg. I need to go either to Cincinnati area , or Batesville to enjoy LaRosa's Pizza. There Steak Hoagey's are absolutely delicious. Everyone can rave about fries from other stories, but I think that LaRosa fries are the best.
