I've been to Rubirosa twice now. It's a cute little Italian place in SoHo. Dark and cozy, it's a good spot for a fall or winter evening dinner. The hostesses are a bit sassy, but if you ignore them then it's a pleasant place.
Their gluten free menu isn't on the website, but they do have a separate menu. There are several appetizers, entrees, homemade pastas, and pizzas. I've tried the meatball and mozzarella stick appetizers. The meatballs were good and you really can't go wrong with fried cheese. I'd also like to try the rice balls.
When I went last night I had the sausage ragu penne for my entree. It was really good. The other time I went I had the chicken parmesan. The portion was quite large and it was definitely enough for two meals. Next time I go, and there will be a next time, maybe I'll try the pizza.
This place is great because it's good Italian food for gluten and gluten free eaters alike.
Anyone else been here? How's the pizza?
