The best in New York

It's always a blur reviewing srufd from a pizza event. This was not cooked in their normal oven, it was a wood fired version at the Slice Out Hunger event, so the crust isn't exactly the same. But I really like the Tie Die Slice. That's what they're known for. Rubirosa is an offshoot of Joe and Pat's in Staten Island. The tie die slice has pesto, vodka sauce, tomato sauce, and fresh mozzarella. I won't comment that much on the crust but that combo makes a great burst of flavor without being overwhelming. I can imagine this on their signature thin the whole way though crust. For now, I'm gonna give a placeholder score of 8.0 mainly based on flavor alone. I'm sure they used the same dough recipe as usual, it was just wood fired and not opened as thin. Can't wait to try the real thing in Manhattan.

A crust that nearly causes earthquakes, flavor is fresh, and a half classic half vodka is an absolute must.

Wow Rubirosa is very good. Went with the tie dye pie which is what they are known for and it was very good. I imagine the simple cheese or pepperoni would be amazing. Cheese on the pie was good, overall just a good tasting pie.

The sauce was delicious but it didn't blow me away and not as good as Joe's or John's of Bleecker.

One of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. Good crisp and excellent flavor all around

Returning to this well known pizzeria to give it a higher score because the TieDye pie more than makes up for the way too crispy ass on this pie. Undercarriage is perfection and ingredients are *chefs kiss*

Almost identical to Joe & Pat’s (the Staten Island one, never had the east village one) except J&P has a better bright tomato flavor to their sauce. The vodka sauce here, however is damn good and I can see why they started jarring it.

Big bucket list place off my list. I feel like I came on a bad day. Got a half cheese, half vodka. The cheese half I’d give a lower score cause it was loaded with cheese to the point it was greasy. Knowing they have connections to Joe and Pats I was expecting less cheese like they put on the vodka half but this was not the case. My slices were also a bit heavy and thought the pie would be crisper in the center. The vodka side was better, I’d say 7.5 but only cause it wasn’t overloaded with cheese.

Spectacular. The benchmark for SI (ultra thin and crispy) style in the city. Rubirosa is a must try. We got both the classic and the fresca. Perfect sauce, perfect crust, great atmosphere.
