Rubirosa Review

Named for a jet-setting Dominican playboy, this Rubirosa is only Latin and lascivious in name. Owner Angelo "A. J." Pappalardo has created an exciting Italian-American eatery that locals have shown an insatiable appetite for (so be prepared to wait). The kitchen isn't trying to reinvent anything here, they simply serve high-quality classic Italian dishes: from pasta with red sauce or a fork-tender veal chop Milanese to the thin-crust pizza—the recipe for the latter comes from Mr. Pappalardo's parents who have run the popular Staten Island pizza joint, Joe & Pat's, since anyone can remember. You don't have to be a jet-setter or a playboy to love this place. Just come hungry.
