Fodor's Review

Named for a jet-setting Dominican playboy, this Rubirosa is only Latin and lascivious in name. Locals have shown an insatiable appetite for this exciting Italian-American eatery, so be prepared to wait for a table. The kitchen isn't trying to reinvent anything here; it simply serves 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 the late owner'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.
