“Excellent food!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

While staying in the area we rode by this restaurant and decided to try it. Wonderful food! Pizza was excellent as were all the other menu items we tried. We had pizza, calzones, seafood fra diavolo over the course of three days.

“Pretty perfect pizza place”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We are regular customers here. We have never been disappointed. They are usually busy for obvious reasons. They are good at what they do.

We mostly do take out here. Their 'ready in xx minutes ' estimates are usually very close and seldom more than a few minutes later than quoted. Not easy with such a busy place. They do pretty well. It doesn't matter to us too much since we want to be there early to get the pie HOT out of the oven and paid for so we can wisk it home fresh

Counter service is pleasant and efficient. There are a lot of people working here and they all seem pleasant and effective at what they do from the pizza makers through the cashiers. They even have a nice buy 10 (or so...) and get one free card they punch.

The best part of course is the pizza. There is a large selection to order and many are available by the slice. We have never had a bad pie from here in what must be 50 orders over the last few years.

As far as variety, we are unfortunately 'stuck on' the Grandma Pie with various toppings. It's rectangular (10 slice) crust similar in shape (BUT not texture) to the classic 'Old Forge' style. It is much more light and crispy than most of the 'standard' OF genre. Toppings? Pick your fav (we like mushrooms and/or broccoli but they've got a lot available and we haven't tried them...stuck is stuck) . Heck the PLAIN ol' Grandma Pie IS GREAT with no toppings...maybe even better than with toppings...loads of flavor as is. It features (real) San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, onions, mozzarella cheese, and seasonings. It's excellent.

We occasionally stray to the wild side and get the 'white pizza', also on on the grandma crust, Plain is good, but we prefer it with spinach. It has cheese galore, with garlic and olive oil. A classic combo. Not for the artery clogged crowd...but tasty as heck.

Buy two ... one Grandma cheese and one plain Grandma... and knock yourself out.

The pies aren't cheap. There are a few reasons for this. We find that they are worth the price.

“Best Pizza Place in CS.”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

By the slice or the whole pizza, this place is great. I've never been to a pizza place with such awesome options. Great thin crust, white pizza, buffalo chicken, and many more, all available by the slice, everyday. HUGE slices. Been living in CS for 2 years now, can't believe it took me this long to find Rosarios. Real soda in the fridge, nice bar to sit at and look out the windows, sit down area with tables, booths available. Cant get much better for a local pizza place. Matter of fact, I'm going to go get some now!

“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We have had the sausage pizza twice now (delivered).
Its very very good (and very large!).
They thin slice the sausage somehow - its very unique - never had that before. Crust is almost perfect, topping slides off a little to easy - but you can fold the pizza and chow down!
