La Rossa Pizzeria in Boca Raton Slice

La Rossa Pizzeria in Boca Raton, FL. A new pizzeria opened up where Ventura’s Pizza used to be located. Many of our readers never even heard of Ventura’s. It was a pleasant place that just wasn’t setup right for success. The sauce was too chunky and the layout was just weird. A really nice family from Argentina just moved to Florida and bought Ventura’s Pizza and renamed it La Rossa Pizzeria. The place sat for sale for a while since in our opinions they were asking more than it was worth. The oven was an expensive one but the business didn’t seem to have sales to justify the asking price. We aren’t accountants so we could be totally wrong. Went there the other day with Michael to test it out for the first time. Here is what we think.

Upon entering the newly named La Rossa Pizzeria next to the Boca Raton Police Department, and across the street from City Hall we could see that additional seats had been added and the drink cooler was moved. It seemed to really open up the place a bit. We ordered a couple a slice each, which basically meant splitting a lunch special. Their lunch special is $7.00 for two nicely sized slices and a drink. We also ordered a Sicilian Pie to taste. They had just put a freshly made pie into the oven so we were told it would take a little bit and one of the young owners would bring it out to us. When the slices arrived, they were hot out the oven and smelled delightful. I made the mistake of biting right in and making a noob mistake of burning the roof of my mouth, but it didn’t seem to both me since this was a fine tasting slice of pizza.

As mentioned above, the slice was super hot so a little cheese came off the tip. I won’t hold this against them at all. The cheese tasted great, and I am guessing they are using a Grande blend. The sauce was fresh and tasted homemade from that morning. The crust was tasty but a little soggy. This could be because of how hot it was coming out of that nice oven, but even when it cooled it didn’t hold up. It would have been better a bit crispier.

When the Sicilian Pie came out, it didn’t look too good and after biting in, I cannot say I was a fan. We will not focus on the Sicilian Pizza here since it isn’t one I could recommend. We would however, recommend the regular pizza we had this day. The owner took some time to come by and ask us what we thought. Since he asked, I told him I will have to answer honestly. He took the advice like a champ and promised to implement some of the changes. He sincerely wanted to serve the best pizza he could and I admired that.

Just to spot check them and see if they actually listened, I went back with Herb the other day, to see if he would enjoy it as well. We got a couple of slices each, once again a really big size. The second time around didn’t taste as good, this might be since the slices were not right out of the oven like last time, and they contained way too much oregano. What they did get right though was the crispiness of the crust. The owner once again came to talk to us and let us know he implemented some of the suggestions. This is a pizzeria with owners who care, and who want to serve the best slice of pizza they can. They are young enough to listen and not think they know it all. I have been recommending many others to go and try this pizza out and so far everyone has praised my suggestion.

One thing to note though….not every place needs to serve every kind of pizza. If you make something average, maybe it is best to focus on the things you make great. This would be my advice here. Focus on the regular pie only.

La Rossa Pizzeria in Boca Raton gets 6 out of 8 slices. I will definitely be returning.
