img_0648img_0649..Let's just start off this review by saying Phenomenal!  I have always wanted to try the original Rosa's Pizza in Maspeth Queens, since I really enjoyed their pizza in Penn Station after a hard day of work.  So when I arrived in New York this time and Sam asked where I wanted to go, I instantly demanded that we try out the original Rosa's in Queens, unaware if the Maspeth or Middle Village location was the original.

Rosa's Pizza has locations popping up all over the city and Long Island now, and I can understand why.  They serve this delicious (my mouth is watering as I type) upside down Sicilian, which you might also know is my favorite pizza by now.

When we pulled up to Rosa's, it was nothing I thought it would be.  I pictured it to look more like a restaurant, but it was instead just an average building, with a pizza parlor there.  I walked up to the counter and immediately made eye contact with the Upside Down (or red Sicilian, as they like to call it).  I ordered up a slice and tried to start a conversation with the "too cool to talk to you guy" behind the counter.  This guy had no idea about anything relating to Rosa's Pizza.  A simple question if this was the original was even too hard for this pizza thug to comprehend.  But all this didn't matter, cause once that slice came out, and I bit into it, and the crust and cheese melted in my mouth, I was in heaimg_0650ven.

I actually even closed my eyes as I chewed on what was left after the melt, picturing myself eating dozens of these slices everyday (for free).  To anyone who is looking for a good upside down Sicilian slice, Rosa's gets how to make it, at this location.  The sauce is so nice and sweet, and thin, and the cheese is freshly baked into the dough, which is let to rise in my opinion about 2-3 times.  This is a must try, and worth going out of your way to check out.

Rosa's Gets what very few other pizza places have gotten previously....a PERFECT SCORE 8 out of 8 slices!

    It's true. I have lived in Maspeth all my life and we all know that Rosa's is the best! They do not deliver though, so we all drive there to pick it up ourselves!

    Did you notice how dumb the guy ringing up the pizza was? He could benefit from a customer service seminar! But damn that pizza was good!

    Rosa’s was a nice big clean pizzeria.  The pizza was nothing spectacular.
