Rubirosa is Angelo (AJ) Pappalardo's family-run neighborhood Italian-American restaurant and pizzeria.
The menu at Rubirosa is comprised of Al DiMeglio's (Olana, Osteria del Circo) take on Italian-American classics including a wide array of house-made pastas as well as its flagship thin-c…rust pizza dating back to a 51 year old family recipe.
The family recipe originated at Joe and Pats pizzeria in Staten Island which is the namesake pizzeria of AJ's father Giuseppe. Our menu is complimented by a unique Italian focused wine, cocktail and spirits program by General Manager/Wine Director Bari Musacchio and talented Bar team.
Rubirosa is located in the heart of Nolita and its clientele bridges the gap between the old and new neighborhood regulars. Angelo Bianchi helps to create a fun crowd in Rubirosa's cozy and comfortable atmosphere that welcomes every occasion from a family-style group dinner to drinks and antipasti at our cozy barContinued
