Rubirosa Pizza, on Mulberry St. in the heart of the historic Little Italy NYC, is part of the new wave of old-school New York Italian joints. It pays homage to Little Italy’s grand culinary tradition by embracing its standby dishes with authentic gusto and creative flair.
The editors of Food & Wine call it “new school” Italian:
“New York City: It isn’t always easy to find good Italian food in Little Italy. Rubirosa is a great new exception. Angelo Pappalardo learned to make pizza at Joe & Pat’s, his family’s Staten Island place; here, he serves pies as well as dishes like gnocchi with mini meatballs and crispy brick chicken stuffed with ham and cheese.”
And with the “new school” of old-school Italian cooking in lower Manhattan also come more ambitious wine lists and more adventurous pairings.
We’re proud to share the news that Rubirosa is currently serving Pievalta 2012 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi by the glass.
