Anyone from the East coast should avoid this. you would not consider it pizza. it's got a breadlike dough, half the locations don't cook it enough and it is soggy. the sauce is just a tomato sauce, nothing great. i have had business meetings and fed it to people from out of town (such as Az, Minn., Ca, NY.) Many refuse to eat a second piece. If you've grown up on NY style pizza, you will be amazed that this place is in business.
Cincinnati is one of the worst pizza towns for pizza I've ever been in, the people here grow up on this stuff and don't know any better.

My nephew loves thier pizza. I prefer Papa John's & never pass by either of the Indigo locations in greater Cincinnati, as they have the best pizza & calazone in town! LaRosa's is decent, has a large variety of edible entrees, but does not impress me as authentic or entice me to seek them out, except when my friend from Dayton is in town. He likes to go there & we do when he stops by. I guess he is tired of Vic Cassano's.
My friends and I order LaRosa's at least once a week. I normally either get a traditional (thin) crust pizza with cheese, or a calzone stuffed with fresh spinach, olives, and the 3 cheese blend. Its great! I do normally get light sauce though on the pizza becuase of the thin crust.
