We still continue to go here when we are in the mood for a good pizza, but the entire menu is overpriced. The waitresses, who I think are family members, really are lacking in the service area. The take-out area is a disaster.The other annoying thing about Roseland is that although they accept charge cards, the tip has to be... More

This place was recommended by a friend who also craves good New Haven Style Pizza! What a find! It was really busy, which is always a great sign. Walked right in and picked up 4 large pizzas. All Thin Crust and just perfect. Kids and Parents were all satisfied. Been around for 65years and we just discovered it. You must... More

Roseland Apizza, hidden in the hills of Derby Connecticut, just a few blocks off a Route 34, is, quite simply put, hands down the best pizza in Connecticut. Their arugula pizza alone is worth the trip. But everything is great. You can't reserve a table; it's too popular. Go and expect a bit of a wait at dinner time. It's... More

Been a very good customer since the 1980's. The food and the pizza is exceptional without question. Their shrimp casino pie is the best you will ever eat and their sausage pie is also fantastic , as their sausage is homemade premises. They also home make their own bread which compares to non-I've ever had just great as well! They... More

We did take out. We ordered 2 large pizzas, 1 was all sausage and the other was 3/4 onion,1/4 plain mozzarella. The take out/ pick up is at the end of the parking area near the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen so we never got to see the restaurant interior. The exterior of the restaurant is a...

This restaurant is in my hometown of Derby! I worked here years ago too and my husband would wait up to see if I came home with any leftover goodies! The pizza is fantastic… We love the Roseland special… We love the white seafood pies! I love the muscles too! We have moved away to another state and whenever I... More

I am a huge Pepe's pizza fan but love going to Roseland because of the variety of other foods. Their arugula salad is to die for and pairs nicely with the pizza. Staff friendly and courteous.

We had our first experience with Roseland's pizza yesterday afternoon and it was a great one. We had the Roseland special (their own sausage with mushrooms & garlic) and a mozzarella and tomato sauce for the kids. Perfectly cooked pizzas with delicious crust. Never thought I'd find this quality pizza in the valley. Everyone was so nice I wanted to... More

Went there March 29 2014, once the server (if that is what you want to call her) brought the burnt pizza $23.00 she disappeared and I had to beg for the check. Never again.

Great pizza - my favorite is what they call the "Poor Man's Pie" - tomato sauce, garlic and a little parmesan cheese. Good size portions.
