Special rice ball appetizer!

We went there for pizza and saw an appetizer that couldn't be passed up. Rice balls with mashed sweet peas and red pepper sauce. They had a better name for them but the best I have had. Pizza was good too!

We had a group of 4 and we looked at all the pizzas on trays around the restaurant. They looked great. But our local colleague said we have to have the jumbo shrimp and bacon white pizza. It's only a medium size but maybe with an Antipasto it will be enough. Well, it was. Which was a shame as I... More

Roselands is the best pizza around! I can't speak to the service as we always get it to go, but the food is good! I've heard they have some mid-week dinner specials which we want to try, but we've always had great pizzas! Veggie, meat plain cheese. One day I want to get the seafood pizza (pricey- but I'm sure...

If you care ONLY about the taste of the food, then plan a visit, if you care, even a little, about anything else, yikes, beware. The place is disgusting! No monies have been reinvested in any interior or exterior improvements ever. Not to mention the subpar customer service. After our waitress took our drink and food order, I got up... More

Roseland serves excellent New Haven style pizza, without New Haven style waits. Yes, there is a bit of a line at prime time, but not at all like those New Haven pizzeria Disney-lines. They also have a number of delicious salad, pasta, seafood and meat entrees. Everything we have tried has been very very good. The point of this review... More

Our friends brought is here for dinner tonight and it was wonderful! No reservations are accepted and it gets packed early so get there early. We arrived at 5 and every table was taken and a wait list with a dozen names already. You also have to write your own name on the list and they will call you and... More

The meals may be better than the apizza, and the apizza is the best anywhere! Service can be as crusty as the delicious bread, but they're just trying to keep up with the line out the door. It's pricey but the ingredients are the freshest and best you can get. Worth every cent! Get out your checkbook and have one... More

Pizza is my all time favorite food. I could eat it every day and for every meal. I buy the extra large roseland special with fresh garlic every time so I can have leftovers the next day. I choose this restaurant for my birthday, anniversary and my once a month date night with my boyfriend. We love it here!

Always loved Roseland, the Pizza is a close to a New Haven Pizza as you can get. Super thin crust, fresh ingredients and a special family style feeling when you are in the house. Go ahead ask for extra garlic too! We love the sausage pizza, it's one of out favorites! Get there early, seats go fast...or call and pick... More
