Rosario’s Pizza quite a hit in uptown Hoboken!
You realize time flies – when you haven’t been to one of your favorite Hoboken pizza places in years.
Rosario’s Pizza, located at 1132 Willow Ave. (201-418-8717) went through an interior renovation – as well as updated their sidewalks (in the past year or so). And customers seem to have noticed. The restaurant was much more crowded than I ever recalled – which is good news for local businesses in town!
I’ve provided some quick updated photos below – and since the last review was four years ago, a new review will be coming shortly. But I wanted to ask…
Are you a regular customer at Rosario’s? If so – what is your favorite dish, so I can try it out for myself?

September 2006 Review of Rosarios Pizza
A quick lunch was in order, so we picked Rosario’s since we hadn’t been there in a while.
Rosario’s is a simple italian pizzeria/eatery, with about six tables and a few seats at the counter. Of course they offer delivery as well.
Today we’re going to sample their slices and a couple main courses.
The plain slices are pretty decent. Nice thin crust, the sauce has a decent “tang” to it. A bit on the oily side, but slightly above average for Hoboken.
Then they brought out a loaf of bread. This was obviously not your usual italian bread. They baked it there, but it was more like a regular white bread. Wasn’t spectacular, but useful for dipping a bit in your sauce.
Our dishes came out next. We ordered a standard Chicken Parm, and an Eggplant Rollentine.
The chicken dish, while the portion was very large, was disappointing. They use slicing mozz, which didn’t have the most flavor. The chicken was bland as well, and the sauce was too watery. I had to spice it up quite a bit to make it more appealing. The penne I got with it was cooked al dente and was adequate. But sort of useless without a good sauce.
My friends Eggplant dish was much better. That actually had flavor, along with the ricotta cheese and spinach. Although, the spinach was a bit soggy and wet. But a much better choice than the Chicken.
Rosario’s is a good reliable place for a decent pizza. Based on the dish I had, I’d be reluctant to recommend anything else. I will get back to try other choices on their menu in the coming months.
Has anyone else tried the other dishes they serve? Any suggestions?
