College town pizza joint

Average to very good, Rosa's Pizza is perfectly situated for a college town like Whitewater. Is it the best pizza ever? No, but it's better than any chain pizzeria or frozen pizza from the grocery market. When entering from the parking lot, you think "am I walking into a bowling alley or pizza... read more

This is the best place to get Italian food, and pizzas etc. they also have the best ice cream! I call in ahead and take my order home. Always order a few extra meatballs.

If you don't like heavy sauce on your pizza you will like Rosa's. I don't like a lot of sauce on my pizza so I like their pizza. Ask for extra sauce right away if you are a pizza sauce lover. I ordered hot wings on a second visit here. They told me their wings were not like traditional hot... More

I've loved this place, and it's been my Whitewater favorite 'za for years. The pizza is cheesy good and very cheap. Cheese bread and lunch salad bar are musts. HOWEVER, visited the bathroom for the first time on last visit and it was downright filthy. My minimum criteria for a decent food place is a clean, modern, well-stocked bathroom. I... More

I stopped here today with my wife, daughter, and three nieces. There was smoke from the kitchen in the restaurant, the towel dispenser in the men's room was broken. This is a perfect college pizza joint. The ice cream today was excellent! Don't pass it up.

Whenever we travel, we like to find the local establishment with character. Rosa's is definitely that place in Whitewater. It's got the fun food (pizza, sausages, ice cream, etc.) and great prices.

This is a college area, so maybe bringing a family there wouldn't be the best thing, not at night anyways. We were there earlier, by 4:30p.m., one guy working the counter and I assume, making the pizzas. We did get their special which was an ex-large 2 topping pizza and a large cheese (no sauce) pizza, cut into strips, for... More

The food is top notch, you will just have to wait an obscene amount of time for delivery, that is assuming you can get them to answer the phone during normal business hours (a nearly impossible feat.) One bite of their Italian beef you will be a believer, all your reservations will melt away, like the cheese topping the top... More

Being a former student of UWW, we always hit up Rosa's for pizza after bar time. Stay away from Toppers, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns....stick with Rosa's and you won't go wrong.

I like the way they do pizza, but the ice cream is the best I've ever had, and I've been around.
