Our History

In 1996, Mitch Rotolo opened the first Rotolo’s Pizzeria in Baton Rouge, Louisiana just a pizza throw away from Louisiana State University. Through the will and loyalty of Rotolo’s customers, the casual Italian restaurant has since grown into a successful franchise with locations across the south and many more in the works! Rotolo’s is proud to continue to live up to its long-standing reputation for providing fresh ingredients and friendly service, because that’s just the way we Rotolo!

The original Rotolo’s bled purple, gold, and freedom at its location in the infamous Tigerland near Louisiana State University.

Our first ever business card.

BR Business Report: Legacy of Success – Growing restaurant brand has roots in the heart of Baton Rouge. “I was very fortunate in that we had great sales right out of the gate. I knew absolutely nothing about accounting, legal issues, regulation, taxes, insurance or any of those other things it takes to run a restaurant. But I was passionate about what I did, and everything else I learned on the job.” – Mitch Rotolo
