If you haven't tried a slice of the Sophia (close to a Margherita) pizza, then you might not understand what all the fuss is about or why this place is still bustling. But this simple slice exposes the true secret to Rosario's best pizzas - the sauce. You might find better sausage (which I'm not even sure the sell here), you might even find better cheese at the more well known "best pizza" places in NYC, but this sauce is the stuff of legend! I have dreams about the Sophia. And chefs from Italy have come to Sal (the owner) to learn his recipe (no joke). As for the staff...I always find they give what they get - they deal with A LOT of late night drunks, and they are usually pretty brusque with them. But not only have I always been treated well, I've observed how the owner is almost always on site and takes the time to speak with his regulars and get to know them by name (I've spoken with him and plan to be one of those regulars). Sal always has a smile and a warm Italian greeting for all his stumbling, starving, or munchie craving patrons - we love you Sal. And I LOVE Rosario's pizza!

Born and raised in the neighborhood and I compare all other pizza to theirs, and I've tried 'em all! It's cheap, its consistent and its damn good. Can never go wrong with a fresh, hot slice of pepperoni from this place!

I grew up on this slice, so I am incredibly Biased. However I am a pizzaholic and have tasted slices from all over NYC and the world. This slice, and I have friends from around the world to back me - is the best NYC pizza around. I dont eat from any other shop, but I will taste other slices once. I used to have pizza sent to me in college, thats how much I'm hooked on it. My mom would always bring a pie whenever she came down to visit me in Orlando. Good stuff IMO - but everyone is a critic

I live right around the corner from Rosarios and could not be happier. It is as good as a NY slice gets. I highly recommend making sure you get a fresh pie or ask what is most recently out of the oven. As its often the best. One reason that a straight cheese is worth it. Lastly - I LOOOOVE the eggplant. A killing nYc slizza!

Best pizza around. I love the mushroom slice because they use FRESH mushrooms. Can't beat Rosario's.
