Rubirosa is a family restaurant run by Angelo Pappalardo who has kept alive the thin-crust pizza recipe created at his father's pizzeria in 1960.
In the heart of Nolita and delighting customers from various age groups, Rubirosa is a comfortable, cozy and even homey place, perfect for family meals or a simple after work drink.
And, despite the wonderful pizzas that have their just spotlight, Rubirosa doesn’t live off its pizza alone. In fact, there are several classic pasta dishes that are prepared daily from scratch in this rustic restaurant, along with a selection of wines, cocktails and spirits expertly served by the bar staff. If you’re looking for a restaurant that harmoniously combines typical Italian recipes with American requisites, Rubirosa is your restaurant.
Cool Tip: At Rubirosa there’s also "Pizza Hour" where, although it’s not possible to have a full meal, pizza slices are served during one hour, every day from 4 to 5 PM.
