This is the best pizza in the area. We drive from Monroe and have never been disappointed. We love the Arugula pizza but everything we have seen looks amazing. The wait for a table can be long on a Friday night but it is definitely worth it. We have picked up and taken it home when we know it will... More

I've heard about this pizza from my friends, the pizza didn't disappoint, shrimp pizza was pricey it was market value. It had about 2 pounds of shrimp on it. It was excellent. My favorite pie was the sausage pizza! Hands down the best pizza I have eaten in a long time. Give them a try well worth it. If you... More

This was going to be 3 stars but I had my leftover pizza the next day and boy did it taste better?!!?! so I'm giving it 4 stars. We ordered a chicken broccoli mushroom pie which came quite oily - too much for my taste. Thin crust but not as good as New Haven pies. Antipasto was good but again... More

The food here is always very good. A long time neighborhood favorite for pizza, homemade bread, and many italian favorites on the menu! Roseland,s pizza is the only pizza my grandparents would eat, no other would do!

This is an old place and doesn't look like a great restaurant inside. But, there is a reason for the 45 minute wait. The pizza is the best pizza in ct away from New Haven.

Excellent food. Broad menu choices, chicken, fish, pasta. Sausage delicious. Pizza best in the world. Make sure you get the birch beer soda.

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
