    Easily the best pizza in Manhattan, which compensates for service that is at best indifferent until the check is presented and then it's all smiles. Too bad FOH isn't in sync with BOH.

    My daughter cannot eat gluten and Rubirosa was recommended as an option. We loved it! Items rarely available as gluten free such as mozzarella sticks and rice balls were available. The gluten free pizza was fantastic with very fresh ingredients. We've added this to our favorites list and will definitely be back!

    Great place for lunch. It's small and welcoming. Friendly service. I was able to enjoy the food and the company for lunch. We had a salad which was really yummy and huge. Could have just eaten that and been happy. I ordered the eggplant parm. I was so busy chatting I didn't realize it was a sandwich when I ordered. I avoid wheat so I took the eggplant off the bread. It was good. It also came with a big side salad. It was a nice lunch. My friend got a calamari salad special which looked great. She enjoyed that too. It was a lovely lunch in a nice atmosphere, friendly staff. I would definitely recommend this for those who eat gluten free as they have an entire gluten free menu and gluten free pizza which I will try next time. I would recommend it to all because it's a nice casual place to eat with good food.

    That's all. Get whichever pie sounds good to you the day you go. Order too much on purpose and bring some home. Tie-dye is a Rubirosa classic, more so than the actual namesake pie. Thin crust means even when there's no sauce or other fixings left, you still want to eat it. Had the arugula salad (delicious) and calamari fritti (delicious; make sure someone you're with doesn't mind tentacles because they do feature prominently here, as do zucchini slices). Do yourself a favor and make the reservation. Lunchtime will be easier.

    Rubirosa continues to provide a place to "call home" in NYC for me and my colleagues. The wait staff are visible when you need them and invisible when needed-quite a balance. The food strikes me as being constantly cultivated always honoring the proclaimed "family recipe" w/ a touch of modernization - the citrus salad was a big surprise + and prior to a veggie heavy pizza enough to cap off any week with a nod to the foodie up high...thanks AJ, your presence is still here.

    $40 for a super think crust pizza is ridiculous. My boyfriend and I were able to split a salad, rice balls and and an entire large half supreme, half tie-dye. After some wine and a tip, pizza night turned into $130. The restaurant was too crowded, too loud and service was meh. The pizza however, is actually delicious. Just know what you're getting into.

    Rubirosa is authentic Italian pizza. A tasty sauce and right combo of cheese. High end ingredients make the pizza worth the price. Hard to get a reservation because of it's popularity and a hour plus wait for walk ins. But soooooo worth it.

    Excellent service, a good draft beer recommendation and a yummy pizza (the Classic) made for an enjoyable lunch experience. We'd consider coming back but not for the pizza. It was good, not great. Tottono's and Di Fara remain the gold standard in our opinion.

    We had reservations for a group of six. We were given a nice table in a secluded portion of the restaurant. The service was on point and the food was phenomenal! We split two supreme pizzas and were totally impressed! My wife is strictly gluten free. The Rubirosa staff had no problem accommodating her requests and provided what she described as the best gluten free pizza she's ever had! I tried some and couldn't even tell the difference. If you are in NYC, don't miss this place! You should plan to make reservations. We would have gone back again during our visit had we had another reservation time. We will be back to Rubirosa the next time we are in NYC!!

    The classic pizza is the best pizza I have ever had. My family agrees. Rubirosa is kid friendly meaning we did not feel weird having our young children here but the food is not dumbed down for kids. Everyone will have an amazing NYC dining experience. We spent some time hanging out at Columbus Park then walked to the restaurant. This is a great location with amazing food.

    Amazing pizza place. Has a local pizza place feel but a gourmet experience. Had the supreme and tie dye pies. It was excellent. Razor thin crust that was both chewy and crunchy. Service was great and not a long wait for the food. Fresh ingredients like pesto, meats and sauce. Will definitely return for the best slice in NYC.

    After reading about Rubirosa online my boyfriend and I tried to get a table one evening as a walk in. Don't try this! They were fully booked all evening, and the next night too. However, we booked online for the following week and it was worth the wait! The pizzas are huge, and the gluten free menu (one of the main reasons we went as finding good gf food in NY was getting difficult) is just as good as the main menu - no having to pick from one or two dishes, they had numerous pizza, pasta and even starter and dessert options. Highly recommend to any gluten free (and hungry!) diners in NYC.
