I took a break from work the other day to go up to the Rotolo’s Pizzeria on Rampart street with a couple of Forum For Equality Board members and the new Managing Director (she’s replacing me). This was my first time at this Louisiana chain–they’re mainly in the Baton Rouge area but they’re expanding into the Greater New Orleans area.
Billed as the “Official Pizza of the New Orleans Saints,” our large pizza was loaded with fresh ingredients–we had pepperoni, onions, mushrooms and extra cheese on our pie. The onion slices were large so you got more of an onion taste than the specks of diced onion some chains try to pass off to their customers. The pizza crust was nice and chewy and it stood up to the toppings. The rest of the diners enjoyed the Cesar salad and the BBQ chicken wrap was big in size and flavor.
This place was great for lunch service as the pizza was delivered quickly to the table. The service was excellent upstairs with fast refills on the drinks.
