Order your pizza Skokie Style for crisp old-fashioned crust that you may recall from the 70's. We love this pizza.

Used to frequent this place before change of ownership. Stopped in to get some lunch and I've never in my life seen such a dirty restaurant. The sit down area had dirty tables and a carpeted floor that looks like it hasn't been cleaned or vacuumed in years. I will never go back again. The counter that you see when... More

I stopped here for lunch with a couple people. And honestly the food was great. Both the pizza and the pasta. The one issue is the place isn't very clean. If you can get past that it's great food.

Now under the ownership of one of the original owners, the flavorful, topping-rich pizza is back, after an abysmal run by the previous owners. So delighted to have a great pizza back in town! Not exactly a great eat-in place, but for carry-out pizza this was our favorite for decades, and we're so pleased to see the return of the... More

Ordered 2 pizzas for delivery. Came very hot! Very tasty pizza. Green peppers were excellent, made Italian way! Restaurant could use major facelift but we ate at home. Will order again

We love to get pizza from here. It never disappoints. We usually get a thin crust with cheese. It satisfies every time. Price comparable to other local pizzerias.

It's not the first time I've been to La Rosa, and it likely will not be the last. But I needed a quick dinner, which I called in about 7 minutes prior to arriving - an eggplant sandwich "deluxe", which includes fries. The great part was that the sandwich didn't take long (it was done shortly after I arrived) and... More

The pizza is very good but we always get take out here because the water is well water an has an unpleasant taste. (You could probably order bottled water.) Another minus for eating there is that the bathroom is located right off the dining room, not down a hallway and I don't enjoy seeing the bathroom when I am eating.... More

Nov 7th we were still here for our Grandson's hockey tournament and looking for a home style pizza place. Driving down Milwaukee ave after his hockey game, we spotted La Rosa's. Grandson wanted pizza for dinner and we went in. The restaurant is small, and cozy seating about 40 plus people. Seating is mostly chairs and a couple of benches... More

We ordered a Margherita pizza and deemed the cheese and ingredients quite delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. The place itself need some updating, however, including a new carpet.
