Best pizza outside ofr New Haven

Used to live near here and would order pizza when I didn't feel like driving into New Haven. Was back in the area this weekend visiting family so we ordered take out. The pizza really is THAT good but as others point out, you pay a premium for it and have to deal with the 'take it or leave it'... read more

I took my parents to Roseland Pizza on Mother's Day. The service was better than anticipated and the pizza was good however it was nowhere near as good as the big three in New Haven. Also the cost was much higher than any other pizza place I've ever been to. So essentially it's a good, although not great, pizza place... More

The Pizza is outstanding. We have been here a few dozen times and never had a bad meal. The prices are a little steep but they do use very fresh ingredients and the taste does not disappoint. Seating is a little cramped and on Friday and Saturday nights your going to have a wait

I had heard of Roseland Pizza for years and had meant to get there but it was just a little out of my way, especially for pizza. (Or so I thought.) We arrived and were warmly and promptly greeted. It was a little late on a Friday night but the place was still pretty packed. The selection of specialty pizzas... More

We live nearby, and absolutely some of the best pizza I have ever had. We usually get take-out for the pizza. We have dined in on a couple of occasions. So why is it average? The service is really that bad, and the prices are high. - No website. No online menu. Makes ordering takeout a painful process. - No... More

I was invited by a local to go to Rosalind Apizza when I asked him where to get good seafood. I thought he was "nuts'. He got the last laugh. The location is back in a residential area so you will not stumble upon it. You have to be looking for it, but if it was a treasure hunt it... More

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
