Another fun place to have a pizza in NYC. Top notch service looks bigger inside. Pizza was nice thin and crispy.

Second time here in the past two years & still amazing. The large house pizza and pastas are fabulous. Service was great and we loved the small intimate feeling of the place.

I had lunch here with a large group of 11 people. Pizza was very good, small place but they accommodated us very well. For those who like a very thin crust go to Rubirosa. Mackerel app was also very good. Waitress was very accommodating as I tried three or four different wines before ordering a couple bottles.

We loved our dinner at Rubirosa (in the heart of Nolita) so much two years ago, that we decided to go back on this trip to NYC. The restaurant books up about a week in advance. So, we were lucky to get a reservation at a hi-top table in the bar, which we both preferred. We shared a Caesar Salad.... More

We've been here 3 times per 5 days in NYC. Very good service, quality tasty food, great pizza and great wine. And prices are not too high. This place is always packed with people, make a reservation in advance or be prepared to wait in queue.

I have been here for a slice during the day and dinner at night, travelling solo or with my wife, each time it's been perfect. A must visit for every time I come to NYC. Relax, have a beer and an amazing pizza.

As a coeliac I've always struggled to find good Italian food. This place was amazing, with a great GF selection and the pizza was the best I've ever had. For all coeliacs I would definitely recommend.

Went with my son who said it is impossible to get in. Snow das lunch. Very good, crowded but not sure why the hype. Place was nice but there are plenty of spots in Little Italy that are good. Wasn't disappointed but think the food is over hyped.

I wouldn't go to this restaurant again if someone paid me. The hostess was extremely rude. No food is worth the rudeness.

I'm impressed. Rubirosa has a lot to offer at reasonable prices. While the place is small and a wait list may form, the food speaks loudly enough to offset those factors. The pizza is thin crust and crispy, offered as a classic with choice of toppings or as preset specialty pizzas. Half and half pizza toppings are also an option.... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
