La Rana Rossa’s Pizza is Prime ‘Cheap Eats’

La Rana Rossa, the new Jamaica Plain pizzeria on Green Street, received the “Cheap Eats” treatment in today’s Boston Globe Food section.

Among the pizzas praised in the piece: the Cheeburger Cheeburger Cheeburger, “essentially a deconstructed cheeseburger in pizza form,” the pizza Puttanesca, which boasts “a melange of intense flavors,” and the roasted mushroom pizza, which “arrives under a pile of arugula and red onion, the mushrooms tender and savory.”

The story notes that co-owners Brown Brown and Ginger Russell hold a five-year lease on the space, with an option to extend for another five years, and are still working on obtaining a beer-and-wine license. They also hope to add appetizers to the menu soon.

Also name-checked in the article: JP favorites Bella Luna, Canto 6 Bakery, Ula Cafe and Chilacates. La Rana Rossa joins them “as another neighborhood standby in this underserved stretch of JP.”
