Best Pizza ever

OK. I grew up in Cincinnati and have since moved on to living in other less provincial areas of the country. (I now live in LA and used to live in the Bay Area) I have traveled a lot both in and out of the US as well. I can honestly say that I still, nearly every week, CRAVE LaRosa's pizza. It's the sauce, and the way they cook the cheese perfectly. I have been unable to find any place which even comes remotely close to LaRosa's pizza. I've tried pizza in Chicago, New York, LA, San Francisco, and it all completely SUCKS in comparison to LaRosa's. Generally, I don't miss living in Cincinnati much at all, but you'd better believe the first place I go after getting off a plane to Cincinnati to visit family is LaRosa's...every time.

Good pizza. The thin crust is my favorite. Take it is superb and is usually ready to be picked up in 10-15 minutes!!

Only a native loves that sauce

I've always found LaRosa's sauce to be too sweet. I stick with the foccaccia pizzas (mediterranean being my preference) when I go there, or better yet, the pasta. There are so many other great pizza joints around that I wouldn't choose LaRosa's except for an office gathering.

kid friendly

What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in service and great food. Prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly and accomodating. A kid friendly restaurant.

Boring LaRosa's Pizza Personifies Cincy

Certainly, there is worse pizza to be found in the greater Cincinnati area (Donato's comes immediately to mind) but no pizza better personifies the stanch conservative blah of Cincinnati more than LaRosa's.

It's been around forever and evokes a fondness in those who grew up on it that anyone who hasn't will find most bizarre. The signature thin crust is as crisp as corrugated cardboard and just as flavorful. The sauce is just shy of tomato paste in its distinctiveness, which may be an overstatement on my part.

Not awful, but this pizza is best when bought by someone else. If you're coming to Cincinnati and want really good pizza go to Dewey's, otherwise stick to Graeter's (Ice Cream), Skyline (Cincinnati Chili) or Montgomery Inn (Ribs).

Quick Taste Itialian Food

The dine-in facilities at LaRosa's are Lovely. Plesant booths or tabbles napkin,salt,pepper,red pepper & parmisian cheese holders that show specials on top. More often, pizza lovers carry out the goods or have them delivered with that magic number,347-1111 or * 1111 airtime free on any area cell phone. So the mood is up to you. I've seen people dress anywhere for formal to casual. So come as you are.
I'm sure you'll like there pizza or any of there many other dishes. Like a calzone, hoagie,lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, or even a salad. There are over fifty items available, so something is sure to please. The cost is about average for delivery pizza, but you can score some bargains with their LaRosa's coupons.

The sauce and cheese are great. They add just the right amount of ingredients.

Good pizza!

Distinctive and flavorful, with many locations throughout the greater Cincinnati area. The dining facilities aren't wonderful, but the service is fine.

sweetest sauce in the world

I was introduced to Larosas (papa ginos) as a teenager. Buddy Larosa always made me and my date and buddies feel part of the family. Since that time I have had pizza all over the country and have never tasted pizza as good as Larosa's.

great stuff

LaRosa's is one of Cincinnati's best places to get pizza. Their other items on the menu are good, too.

Wish there was one in TN!

I used to live in Cincy and everytime we had pizza we would go to Larosa's. They had (have) the best pizza and the best commecial (""247-4111!""). I love it still! every time me and my mom go back to Cincy we HAVE to get a Skyline coneys and Graeter's ice cream for lunch and LaRosa's pizza for dinner with a treat from Busken's for dessert. Keep up the good work at LaRosa's!

Great sauce, great cheese, no toppings!

I only go to Larosa's for there cheese and their sauce. The toppings suck. They don't give you any first of all..and the ones they do give you are always piled on each other. But I do go their frequenlty because the sauce and provalone cheese are out of this world. They have a good product! I just wish they would take a little more pride in thier work and spread cheese and toppings more evenly. Also at those prices the amount of toppings are ridiculus!

LaRosa's the best!

To me, I think that LaRosa's Pizza is one of the best of its kind. And, not only is it good pizza, they have excellent service along with it! The value of the pizza was tremedously good also!

Totally Addicted

I realized that I was addicted to LaRosa's pizza when I left for college four years ago to Ohio State. Each time I had pizza, I was never quite satisfied and I ALWAYS wanted LaRosa's. That thin, crispy crust, sweet tangy sauce and delicious smothering of provolone cheese is second to none.

It's saucy!!!

The importance of a great pizza is in the sauce nothing more or less. Even when service is not on the mark, the flavor is what brings a pizza customer back! I am currently in Texas, and very homesick for my family and Larosas.

Poor Service and Food

I have to say that the food at Larosa's in my neck of the woods has diminished greatly. I ordered breadsticks from this place the other day with cheese and the chees was not even melted on the sticks. My hoagie was cold and the bread was hard.
