PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A beloved restaurant in Prescott is spreading its culinary wings, establishing a second location in Prescott Valley.
After opening in Prescott 10 years ago, Rosa's Pizzeria is opening doors at its new location in Prescott Valley next to the Harkins Theatres off North Glassford Hill Road, north of State Route 69. The restaurant was first opened in Prescott in 2011 by Domenic and Rosa Anzelmo. The pizzeria pays homage to their family's deep Mediterranean roots, offering authentic, homemade Sicilian and Southern-Italian recipes, along with traditional New York-style pizza! The expansion marks the first market expansion by the area's largest restaurant group, Vivili Hospitality Group.
“Vivili has experienced incredible traction recently; we’ve had our strongest years with business soaring during an unexpected time,” said Skyler Reeves, proprietor of Vivili Hospitality Group said in a statement. “Rosa’s has a special place in my heart, it has a long legacy in Prescott, so it feels right to have this much-loved restaurant be our first to launch in a new market and now bring its iconic food to patrons in Prescott Valley.”
The Prescott Valley location will feature the same beloved menu as the Prescott site but with a fresh look and feel. Restaurant-goers can expect an eye-popping interior featuring red-and-white tile, family-style high-top tables, booths with buffalo plaid designs, an elevated private dining area and an indoor/outdoor bar. The 5,500 square-foot location will also have a front and back patio!
Rosa's Pizzeria is open Wednesday through Sunday from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m., with extended hours until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Lunch enthusiasts can expect expanded hours to include lunch service sometime next month. To celebrate the new location, a grand opening party will be held on Oct. 7. The party will include a live band, food/drink specials, and a raffle to win free pasta for a year!
