Spaghetti Pizza at Rosso

Spaghetti Pizza at Rosso

Missed celebrating National Spaghetti Day? So did we.

Fortunately Rosso Pizzeria & Wine Bar offers up its spaghetti and meatball pizza, called the Goomba, daily. Though it may sound like something straight from the kiddie menu, this grown-up, wood-fired pizza is anything but childish. In fact, it’s one of their best sellers.

Hailing from their days at Tra Vigne, co-owner Kevin Cronin said the spaghetti pizza was a popular staff nibble during busy shifts when crusts became a handy on-the-go transport for bites of spaghetti and meatballs. You’ll be a believer.

  1. When I say we “this,” I meant Rosso not this particular pizza.

  2. Honestly I was never a fan. My husband and I tried this twice when it first opened and we were not impressed! I must admit though, this spaghetti pizza sounds really good to me! We may have to try it one more time!

  3. Anthony Bourdain has a new show on the Travel Channel called LAYOVER where he spends 24 hours in a city – eating and drinking his way thru the place w/help from locals. In Rome, he ate the most amazing, delectable-looking pizza that had us drooling — imagine foie gras and figs; proscutto and thinly sliced fresh pineapple; and layered fresh veggies topped w/truffles — these awesome combinations on a cibiatta bread crust put our local pizza-makers to shame. After 3 years of eating at Rosso, we are bored, bored, bored by their offerings. Aren’t u tired of the same old same old???

  4. Wow….the world is getting close to my favorite food…. as served to me by my late great Grandpa from Sicily. Spaghetti Calzone. Break the crust and watch the room fill with the sweetest aromas ever….relax and pretend you’re in Milan…..

  5. Gumba, and not Goomba, is Italian for a good friend.

  6. Baked Ziti pizza is a staple at any new York/Jersey pizzeria. It’s nice to see a nod to it here, deffently going to try it.
