Rosa's Pizza looked alright. It seems like a decent enough place. The people in there were really nice. We wanted coffee so they brewed us a fresh pot and brought the cups to our table where we were sharing one slice. Totally great service. There is a huge seating area in the back where this really adorable family was sitting. Even though I think breeding is usually irresponsible, I can appreciate a cute baby, and this couple that was in there had a really cute baby. The dad talked kind of like Joe Pesci and was also adorable in the way where seeing roughhewn, masculine dudes act cutesy with a child is totally heartwarming. There was also this really weird situation where they had a whole wall of windows that could have potentially looked out onto a backyard or something, but someone on the other side had built a wall right up against it, so you just had a view of a hastily constructed, wooden wall. It was weird but made me happy for some reason.
Ben and me were the only people in the back besides that family, so we tried not to be too rambunctious or obscene in our pizza reviewing. The slice came out piping hot (a good thing), so we sipped our coffee for a while and let it cool down. I thought it was pretty promising, but was sorely mistaken.
This slice simply didn't taste like anything. I don't know what the deal is, but it just like, had no flavor. The texture was alright but nothing wonderful. It just tasted like an absence. Total Black Hole Slice. It was really kind of disappointing. I asked Ben to draw me a picture of how this slice made him feel and this is what he gave me:
