La Rosa Bar and Pizza

Restaurant: La Rosa Bar and Pizza
Address: 193 Pitt St, Shop 133 Level 2 The Strand Arcade Sydney, NSW 2000

La Rosa was jam packed on the Friday night when we went. We were led into the rather dark restaurant to our table by a heavy accented waiter and were greeted with the aroma of pizza and cheese - I knew this is a sign of a good foodies night!

Bruschetta al Pomodoro e Olive con Ricotta Salata - Vine Ripened Tomato and
Black Olive Bruschetta with Salted Ricotta $14.90

I LOVE their Bruschetta. I have been to places where there wasn't enough ingredients with the bread or the bread wasn't toasted. But this beauty is perfect! The tomato were sweet which was balanced with the saltiness of olives and ricotta. 

Gamberi e Zucchine - Prawns, Zucchini, Tomato, Mozzarella and Garlic  $27.50

The crust was thin just like I like it and the prawns were fresh. And what's more, the cheese, they were everywhere yumm. But it's actually a bit pricey, compared to the other dishes.

Cannelloni alla Fiorentina* - Florentine Cannelloni with Spinach, Ricotta and Parmigiano   $26.00

Attention cheese lovers! That cheese sauce. Was amazing, But be careful not to burn your tongue like I did because silly me couldn't wait to try this beautiful dish. 

Calzone di Pere e Nocciole- Dessert Calzone with Vanilla Pears, Nutella, & Pistachio Gelato   $15.50
This was one of the desserts that the waitress recommended to us, the other one was the potato dough doughnuts but we were too stuffed from carbs so we went for the calzone. Besides, anything with Nutella is nice right? We did not regret ordering this because it was absolutely delicious. That pistachio gelato was to die for, it tasted like my fave flavour from Gelatomassi.

The service was quick and the waitress staff were friendly although because it was a busy night, it was sometimes hard to catch their attention. I would come here again and definitely leave room to try their potato dough doughnuts!
