Rosco’s Pizza Is The Hidden Gem In Alaska That Serves Mouthwatering Italian Comfort Food
In the middle of winter, many Alaskans find themselves searching out tasty, filling food to help replenish the calories they’re burning off in the cold. If you’re in Ninilchik, Alaska, and looking for the tastiest Italian comfort food around, Rosco’s Pizza offers everything from delicious hand-tossed pizza to hearty Italian subs.
If you're driving along the Sterling Highway and you are starting to feel hungry, pull over in Ninilchik for flavorful Italian food that will leave your mouth watering.
With a menu packed full of specialty pizzas and Stromboli, you will be hard-pressed to find something you don't enjoy. They even offer a variety of salads for those with a smaller appetite.
The pizzas are handcrafted with top-shelf ingredients.
They come in two sizes: a 12" small, and a 16" large. If you find yourself caught between two flavors of pie, don't worry. They also do half and half pizzas!
As Ninilchik is frequently experienced as a fisherman's town, you can also expect to see tasty seafood on the specials menu.
Enjoy unique flavors like Coconut Shrimp with Mae Ploy sweet chili dipping sauce, or Fish 'n' Chip with beer-battered wild-caught Alaskan Pollock. These baskets are served with crispy French fries and fresh coleslaw.
Don't forget to leave some room for one of their house-made desserts.
The desserts change daily and can include favorites like Carrot Cake, Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake, Wild Turkey Pecan Pie, and even a White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake. With these kinds of flavors, you want to make sure you at least order one to-go!
One fantastic and highly sought after service that Rosco's Pizza offers is their subs to-go option for early morning fishing trips.
Order your sandwich the night before you leave by 8 p.m. They'll have it all packed and ready for you as early as 7 a.m. the next day! And don't forget to add the "Fisherman's Deal," and grab a cookie, soda, and chips with the sandwich for only $3.50.
Rosco's Pizza prides itself on offering amazing Italian food from scratch, using equipment from Italy.
The interior is filled with Alaskan log furniture crafted by local artisan Ken Scofield, who resides in Anchor Point. This is a restaurant filled with the tastes of Italy and the heart of Alaska!
This delicious restaurant is open year-round, and in the winter, five days a week.
Order your mouthwatering pizzas Tuesday through Saturdays, from 11:30 a.m. through 8 p.m. Make sure to check in on their Facebook page to see their daily specials!
