Don't be Fooled by Rossi's Small Appearance
This little Italian restaurant features everything from starters to subs to dinner entrees.
Rossi’s Pizza is a small shop tucked away on Lehigh Street. It has a few tables for in-house dining, but it seems that most people call in their orders for delivery or pick-up. The owner is incredibly nice (and incredibly Italian, which is always a good sign). When I walked in, he said a warm hello and handed me a printed menu.
When I looked over the menu, I realized that Rossi’s is anything but small. They’ve got a long list of pizzas, including specialties like BBQ Chicken, Taco and Chicken Bacon Ranch. They also offer a ton of different appetizers like Broccoli Cheese Bites and Potato Skins, about a dozen salads, and an assortment of wraps, burgers, subs (both hot and cold) and Strombolis. They also feature a kid’s menu and a full list of dinner entrées of pasta (your favorite is probably on the menu), seafood, chicken and veal .
And if you’re looking to entertain, Rossi’s offers party trays and catering.
My meal: A slice of Cheesesteak Stuffed Pizza and an order of Garlic Knots. The pizza was two layers of crust stuffed with steak, cheese and marinara sauce. It was pretty awesome. And the garlic knots were a great deal (6 for $1.99) and made with fresh garlic and parmesan cheese. I’m definitely heading back to try some of their other items. For now, I’d give it a 5/5.
