    Margherita was delicious but the Vodka pizza is the TRUTH and Rubirosa does pizza right. Grab a seat by the bar, have a brew or two, and just enjoy steaming hot, drool-worthy pies in your face. 😇

    The Rubirosa Supreme pizza has all the right toppings with a delicious crust: tomato, mozzarella, pepperoni, mini meatballs, and roasted garlic.

    You can get more than one type of pizza on one pie! Get half vodka and another half that catches your eye. If you're hungry add the Rubirosa salad and a tiramisu.

    Of course, the real business here is pizza, with standouts including the caprese of homemade straciatella, tomato and pesto, or the mushroom and prosciutto, topped with peas and pecorino. Read more

    Very thin crust pizza with naturally bold taste red sauce is just the perfection. Vodka sauce pizza seemed the most popular one. The best pizza place in NoLita area! Other menus were so great as well.

    Pizza was great. The Rubirosa supremo. Gluten free. Amazing. Service was good too. Till I was handed the cheque without asking, mid bite, half way through the pizza. Spoilt the experience completely

    Tie die pizza did not disappoint. The half sausage and broccoli rabe was great too. The carbonara was good but def go for the pizza as there is better pasta in the city.

    Delicious thin crust pizza! Get a pie with half vodka & half Rubirosa supreme! They have handmade pasta - get the Roman cacio e pepe. For a panino/panini get the braciola/braciole.

    One of the best pizzas in New York City. Has a very nice atmosphere with great staff. If you want a piece of New York's pizza history, this place should be on your list.

    Make a reservation! We used the Resy app and asked it to notify us when there’s availability. Took half vodka pizza and half supreme. It was great! The large is LARGE. Meatballs were also great!

    This lively restaurant is one of your best bets for classic red-sauce cuisine in New York City. Make sure to try one of the homemade pastas, and one of the ultra thin-crust pizzas. [Eater 38 Member]

    Best thing we had was the Tuscan mushroom pasta. Wow. The charcuterie was excellent. Cacio e Pepe was sub par but the tie dye pizza was out of this world.

    You really can’t go wrong, but my favorite meal here would be the beef/veal/pork meatballs to start followed by vodka pizza and the cavatelli with sausage and broccoli rabe 😍😍

    Fantastic old school style pizza, a step up from the overrated but historically significant Lombardi's. More a sit down place to go with friends, thin crust, the vodka pizza is a great thing to try

    This Italian spot has an entire menu dedicated to GF dishes, including the unicorn of the bunch: pizza. We’ll take an order of chicken Parmesan and meatballs (made with gluten-free breadcrumbs), too. Read more

    The gluten free menu is massive and out of this world. Having tried both the “normal” pizza and the GF, I can tell you they are almost exactly alike. You will not be disappointed.

    Come with a few people so you can tour the menu but everything should revolve around the vodka pizza! Other faves incl eggplant parm, stuffed artichoke, Rubirosa salad and tomato ravioli. Mangia!

    the vodka pizza is so good. slices and full menu available up until 4pm so i like to go at 3-ish for a slice or two and one of the pastas. better on your own or with a friend -- it's teeny inside.

    the vodka pizza is their specialty, and the tie-dye pie incorporates some pesto and red sauce with the vodka. some of the thinnest crust you'll find, but it holds up well!

    Best pizza in Manhattan as far as I'm concerned! Must try the vodka sauce pizza, and the broccoli-rabe and sausage pizza! Also try the Rubirosa salad and stuffed artichokes as an appetizer.

    Great spot that is larger than it appears, so do not be put off by any lines.Go with a group and grab a pizza and some pasta dishes. All the choices are delicious. I prefer the Cacio e Pepe.

    Amazingly crispy pizza bases, coupled with the best tomato (and vodka) sauce ever. Get the tomato, mozzarella and basil pizza to share, with a salad on the side. Sit at the bar for the best vibe.

    Pesto pizza and the Butter Ravioli were both amazing. We got seated at a table by the host stand, which was a little annoying, but the food made up for it.

    Vodka was amazing sauce. Classic was solid. Not big fan of their crust though so definitely don’t put them in contention for top nyc pizza.’s super delicious!

    Amazing flavours! Try the vodka and mozzarella pizza, or the pasta with meatballs. Be careful though - large pasta is much larger in price. You can go half and half on pizza to try different flavours

    Not a fan of thin crust but the pizza here is delicious. Half vodka half supreme. Sauces great. Quality can be tasted. Crust was thin yet flexible with a crisp at the crust. Pricey but worth. 4.5/5

    Invite hungry friends who will let you eat off their plate—almost everything is served family style—and fight over the rich & crusty eggplant parmagiano or the spicy sausage & broccoli rabe cavatelli. Read more

    Splitty Splitty alert on the braised lamb pappardelle and cavatelli with sausage. This tag team combo could give Demolition a run for their money.

    Vodka pizza with the pesto swirl is one of my favorites in the city. Super thin and crispy crust. Reserve a seat in advance or there will be a wait that’s well worth it.

    One of the best pies in the city. Crust is thin and crisp just the way a NY pizza should be. Pesto pies shouldn't be overlooked. Expect a wait though if you didn't reserve no matter when you go.

    Pizza supreme is amazing: perfect meat ingredients, sweet aftertaste. Sausage & broccoli rabe pizza, on the other hand, not so much: bitterness of broccoli & saltiness of sausage was too overpowering.

    Obviously get the vodka pizza with mozzarella - it’s the best tomato/cheese combo ever... so creamy. Two of us shared a large pizza: half fungi and half vodka margherita. Still thinking about it tbh

    Vodka pizza, razor clams, charcuterie plate, and arugula pizza all great. Amazing food but not sure the hype really deserves foursquare #1 pizza in NYC.

    Good pizza. Great service. Excellent atmosphere. 6 slices in a small-the large is very big. I wanted to get the large, but I wanted to walk instead of roll out the front door.
