This pizza place has good pizza, big slices with good crust. It has the sweet sauce that I really like on it. Their breadsticks also have mozzarella cheese baked on top of them. Very good. Good for families or just by yourself. I always eat that pizza in the Cincinnati area.

While my husband is a big fan of La Rosa's (mainly due to the fact that it's nostalgic for him), I wouldn't necessarily agree that it is the best pizza in Cincinnati. It's decent. But, nothing extraordinary.

Old Cincinnati favorite, not mine. Too many better than average pizza, subs and dinners available. This suites the taste buds of those who do not like spices or change. Everything is average, so you can not go wrong with anything on the menu. If you feel like pizza not my 1st choice. i will go with the gang not on... More

My family of six actually went to the LaRosa's in South Lebanon but I'm assuming the quality is the same as the one downtown. We had a great meal of pizza, antipasto and drinks for a little over $60. The food was great and the service was even better.

Oven-baked blossoms of pizza dough brushed with our garlic-pesto sauce, stuffed with provolone cheese,pepperoni,and spinach. My order is always HOT, Fresh, and ready to eat, if it isn't, I call the store and one of the managers will make it right for me. But you will never have worries about that, because your ORDER Will be Perfect.

La Rosa's is always pretty good pizza. The service was great though, I always appreciate it when a pizza place realizes you're ordering delivery to a hotel and sends along paper plates. Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference.

A local recommend this place as Cincinnati's best pizza. This is typical, processed, pizza chain food. Nothing special. As an out-of-towner, I was disappointed.

This Cincinnati restaurant chain was founded by Buddy LaRosa in 1954 using authentic family recipes. You will not be disappointed with their pizza, hoagies, or ravioli.

We went to LaRosa's to celebrate Mother's Day. We didn't know until we arrived that they were giving each Mom a free meal. Needless to say, my son who was treating, was thrilled. Also, needless to say, it was very crowded. It took a while to be waited on, but once the waitress came, the service was excellent. They have... More

We like eating at La Rosa's when we can. The restaurant is clean, usually has good service, and the pizza is very good. We do limit our eating to the pizza however. We have tried all of the appetizers and sides, and none of them were really any good. Most are very greasy, or for lack of a better word,... More
