Have never understood why they have such a great reputation-it's truly average Italian. Nothing special!

Slowest lunch service ever and they were not busy. Sub was good but skimpy. Salad was old. Chips are good.

Double pepperoni is a great pizza. The quality is awesome. Had local craft brews which was very nice. Place was clean and the waitress was nice.

It's been a while since we had La Rosa's so why not try a big Farther's Day meal. It was outstanding! We got a large two top pizza, those rondo appetizers, chicken Alfredo pasta and meat lasagna. Made fresh, nice and hot and absolutely delicious ! Service excellent and the restaurant was spotless.
Best of all, it's still competitive priced but much, much better!

We like that La Rosa’s opens early for lunch and dinner, and we like that several young ladies are serving as hostesses; this superb process guarantees a very speedy seating process.

We have been La Rosa’s fans for 48 years, and we have enjoyed the evolution of various business plans.

We also like that the manager is present to discuss the menu and service, and the manager’s presence guarantees that the servers and hostesses shall be on task, rather than socializing.

We encourage La Rosa’s dining public to join the La Rosa’s Club, and membership is complimentary. Simply goto the La Rosa’s website to enroll.

We are frequent flyers, and can count on Corporate La Rosa’s to maintain the high standards of the Dayton Metro area La Rosa’s wherever we may be visiting.

The Dayton area is fortunate to have many “mom and pop” and chain Italian restaurants. One study indicated that Italian meals were the number one favorite of Americans (the study failed to determine if Italian did or did not include pizza joints.)

We are fans of nearly all local Italian restaurants, provided my wife approves the sauce.

Tonight our server, Rhiannon (yes, The song "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac from the White album) does and excellent job, and we ask, “Fleetwood Mac?” Rhiannon replies that her parents loved the song.



We take 15 – 20 minutes to enjoy the minestrone, which is very good.

La Rosa’s offers a nice wine and draught menu, and the publican can speak to the wine and beer menu.

La Rosa’s provides a small “picture menu;” the primary focus is pizza and calzones. Pasta is almost an after thought; however, given the eve of Thanksgiving, my wife appreciates some relief from the kitchen.

She: Ziti pasta with green peppers, onions and Italian sausages cooked in our Family Recipe pasta sauce.; He: Freshly cooked pasta with three meatballs topped with LaRosa's Family Recipe pasta-meat sauce.


We like that there is abundant parking, the call ahead seating, the well-trained servers.

We both require “doggie bags,” and we pass on dessert.

As we take our leave we are surprised to observe a nearly full dining room.

La Rosa’s is priced as a family restaurant, and 2-3 generations are dining this PM at large family tables.

We do not view La Rosa’s as a date night, nor as a weekend destination; however, La Rosa’s is in nearby Cross Pointe.

The clientele seems to be adolescents, young families, and folks seeking budget dining.

The fare is appropriate for the tariff.
