I was not asked to post a review for this company but the level of their service and dedication to their job was what drove me to rate them. So I'm giving them five out of five stars for quality.

Best pizza south of th' Mason/Dixon line

I've known Tony for over 23 years, And was dissapointed when he closed shop here. And moved to ATL. But I'm glad he's doing well.
I reccomend Th' Rosas special, wit' extra cheese.
The Lasagna is pretty dang good too!
good portions, and a good price.

This is one of the best pizza spots in Atlanta. If you need a great slice, stop by Rosa's.

Mama Mia !!! It's Rosa's

1 slice of spinach, 1 slice of mushroom, and I am good to go. This is my favorite pizza in the city. I don't eat pork, but tomatoes, onions or even sun dried tomatoes all make for a pleasant pizza eating experience. Even with a crowded lunch line wrapped around the whole store and down the stairs, the ordering process is different , but finely tuned to get you in and out. Next!!! Price is cool, store is old but relatively clean. Rosa's is my spot.

Wasnt the best ive had

Going to Gsu, eating down town in between classes is hard. Growing up in Long Island. I know real pizza. There pizza is good. But, When I see an employee sneeze and not wash his hands and contunue to make pizza. Makes me want to run as fast as I can from this place.

Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing! The Best In Atlanta!

I've lived in NYC and Chicago, and never in a million years did I think pizza like this would be found in Atlanta. And boy was I wrong. I had to take my son down to GSU for registration and books, and we stopped into Rosa's. Just perfect. No frills, just a hole-in-the wall near Georgia State. But when we walked in, and smelled the pizza, I knew something good was coming our way. This is the real thing, with real Italian's working behind the counter. Thin crust, great maranara, and too much cheese. Just the way I like it. You do not need toppings, but the Italian Sausage is very good.

As a NY transplant and being accused of being a ""Pizza Snob"" I can state without hesitation that Rosa's is the closest thing you will get to NY style pizza here in Atlanta. If you know what makes a good pizza (thin crust, little sauce, lots of cheese and olive oil) then you get it. The only criticism I have with Rosa's is that they need to ""tweak"" the sauce a bit.

Very dirty store..

Def needs a face lift. the pizzas good but I'm a clean freak. its very un-clean. Not top notch in my book.

Bit of NY in ATL

Couldn't wait to try when I hear all of the reviews of best NY pizza. They are right. Night thin crispy crust a bit of saucce and nicely melted cheese, don;t need toppings. Calzone's good dough and sauce on side; used to more ricotta with the nice hint of mozarella, they reverse it but still good.

If you like the generic non-pizza of Pizza Hut go across the street, if you want excellent pizza go here. Don;t come for the atmosphere it is all about the pizza

Ok. If you like gressy oily pizza. Check this place out. Very well done crust. Great location. Staff was a bit pushey. Deffently not going to go back.

Thank you, proximity

I have this disabling/annoying condition- you see, I absolutely love pizza, down to the very core of me (namely, my belly), but I can only enjoy certain kinds (namely, 'good' or 'very well-made'). I go to GSU, and decided to try this place out as I was walking to Aderhold for a class. So many non-New York states try to get the New York pizza right, and fail miserably (e.g. a pizza place a couple blocks away). Rosa's not only delivers a superb New York style pizza, but offers great prices for what you are getting (huge cheesy goodness). I HIGHLY recommend everyone stop by at least once.

Little Italy In Downtown ATL!

Everyone knows when you go to NYC, you go to Little Italy for homestyle pizza and Mama's other favorites. When you are in DT-ATL, do yourself a favor, and get in line, at this hole-in-the wall. When you finally get inside to place your order at the counter, you will think you are in Little Italy. Just the best NYC pizza this side of the Mason-Dixon line! Crispy slices the way you like. My favorite is a variation of a slice, called a Sausage Roll. Italian sausage, cheese, peppers, onions, and sauce rolled-up in pizza dough and baked. One of my all time favorite sand/pizza items anywhere.

Get your food and head outside to one of the many tables on the sidewalk. Students, businessmen, office workers, and any one else wanting a taste of The Big Apple!

Only good if you like New York pizza...

Rosa's is the closet pizza to NYC pizza in Atlanta. The crust is harder, the toppings fresh, and the slices large. It's also greasy, and flavorful! I highly recommend Rosa's to anyone from the north.

What do these guys know?

Just want to place a rebuttle against those guys who wrote bad reviews about Rosa's. Being from an area where a good pie means something.... Just gotta say that those bad reviews come from people who wouldn't know a good pizza if it slapped them upside the head! Rosa's is the best in Atlanta. No doubt! Any New Yorkers, Bostonion, or anyone else from the northeast who is dying for a good pizza needs to know that Atlanta does, in fact, have one good pizzaria. If you think I'm wrong, check out the lines out the door everyday. It's the only real pizza town. ENJOY!

Nothing Special

So I read, from the many reviews, that Rosa's is the best. So, being the pizza fanatic I am, I tried it. It was nothing great. I'm from the midwest, and we have pizza chains in our malls like Luca Pizza, Pizza di Roma, and Enzo's pizza, which are all VERY similar to Rosa; plus, they're not served to you by a hairy fat guy.
The place is very dirty, old, and could benefit from some remodeling if they do the business they claim. It's good pizza, but it isn't great pizza. I've had many extremely similar; Sbarro comes to mind.

Oh yah, and someone mentioned something about the grease. It's called New York pizza much?

Grease Dough

My co-workers LOVE Rosa's, so when I first came to work downtown, I was constantly dragged to the area to get some of the coveted pizza. At first, I went along with it - and one day I realized what the problem was - the stuff is LOADED with grease. I could put a whole stack of napkins on top of it and STILL have grease dripping off. Never attempt to order a pizza and take back to the office, the lid stuck to the top of the pizza - the grease was like a magnet to the box top and it was OVER!

The BEST in Atlanta! Those people have it together. Thanks be to God that they come down I-75 everyday to make delicious food at reasonable prices for everyone downtown Atlanta.

Best Pizza Ever!

Rosa's pizza is simply fantastic. You must get the in-store slices for the best deal (so they remain hot and crispy). Worth the often longer-than-20-person line. This stuff is pizza from heaven.

It is above and beyond all of the rest---Words cant describe the delicious taste of the homemade sauce and dough!!! If you have never experienced Rosa's pizza--Well, I gotta say you are missing out! I guess these Georgia people have never had the real NY thing!
