Rosa's has always been my favorite Whitewater pizza place, even when it was a take-out-only restaurant. They've been in Whitewater for about twenty years, and their pizza is consistently good and reasonably priced. Since they moved to Main Street, there's plenty of seating room to dine-in, and they expanded their menu beyond pizza. The staff has always been pleasant. I... More

Rosa's is an icon in Whitewater when it comes to stuffed crust pizza this is the place to eat. Pastas, sandwhiches, and soups are also delcious made fresh locally; we visit at least every couple of weeks.

I am a local in Whitewater so I have been here many times myself. In my experience this is a great place to grab an nice Chicago style pizza, and really is the place in town to grab a quality ice cream cone. Never trying one myself, I hear from lots of people that the meatball sub is very good.... More

Friends suggested we meet there for supper. Staff was nice, patient as we tried to decide on what to have, and friendly. We ordered the pan pizza. Very good. Prices are reasonable. They have delicious ice cream as well.Will definitely go back.

We picked up a pizza from here, it was really good. The sauce was slightly sweet and the toppings were and all fresh. Typical college town atmosphere inside the place. They also have Chocolate Shoppe ice cream on site too. We will definitely come back when in the area.

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 joint?" It's got the charm of northern... More

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.
