We get pretty spoiled with Food Truck Friday and today is no exception.  Rosa’s Bella Cucina rolled up to the AMP Radio studio this morning to feed us all the delicious Italian food we could eat!

You may think Italian food is just pasta and pizza, but owner Rosa explains to Carson that the country’s traditional cuisine is so much more than that:

Rosa’s Bella Cucina is an offshoot of DePalma Brothers, a delicatessen and caterer that has operated in New Jersey for more than 30 years.  With the blessing of her family, Rosa brought all their tasty (and secret) recipes out to California to launch her mobile food truck.

The menu features a wide variety of sandwiches and homemade aracini (that’s Italian for rice balls). Rosa’s Bella Cucina aims to give eaters the experience of eating in old Italy, even importing specialty ingredients for their authentic meals.

The truck has gained a huge following within the Italian community in Los Angeles. They’re a favorite at the Feast of San Gennaro and celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel and Ray Romano are big fans.

Okay, I know you’re practically drooling after reading this and checking out all the photos.  Would you like our featured food truck to stop by your office? Listen to Carson every Friday to find out how you and your co-workers can get hooked up with a free lunch.  Congrats to Lydia from PCB Labels! She was our lucky Food Truck Friday winner today!

    If Rosa’s Bella Cucina is a glimpse of DePalma Brothers Italian Deli in New Jersey. I would recommend this Truck to ALL my family and friends. Not only do you get spectacular italian food, Rosa and Rico are amazing personalities. Their cooking will resonate the character and LOVE of Italian cooking,the same way Mama Rosa takes care of all the Italians on the East Coast. This is A MUST TO DO LIST STOP BY ROSA’s BELLA CUCINA!!!!!!
