This long-time family location causes us to drive some distance to get and bring home their super pizza treats. Son Dominic is there and he's always friendly. Momma Rotolo is often there and happy to share more on their family history. See pictures that I have posted of the two of them, their great pizza.

We've been getting carryout from the Rotolo's shop in Grandview Heights for years and we still love it. Every once in a while we feel like we need to change it up a bit and try something new -- Hounddog's, Adriatico's and Cowtown are also good, but we keep coming back to Rotolo's. Excellent crust that's a combination of crunchy... More

I have only ordered the lasagna to go it comes with Italian bread and a regular side salad. The vinaigrette is pretty basic but since I eat it at home is ok to add my favorite ginger dressing. Great sauce pasta is aldente and the meat has the right amount of seasoning overall perfect Sunday dinner.

Rotolo's pizza has a great, medium thick golden crust, with a delicious Italian style sauce. The sauce tastes great with their rigatoni as well, which comes with a huge salad tightly packed into a deceivingly small container. The garlic topping is the best for their pizza and I recommend getting provolone baked on top of the rigatoni. A proper Italian... More

I just ate Rotolo's pizza for the first time last night and it was very good. I can understand why they were rated 7th best in the country next to pizzarias from Chicago and New York. It was full of flavor and very filling.This is real pizza! It is made with their homemade sauce that has been passed down from... More

The pizza and salads are quite good here but the subs are excellent. We especially like the Super Sub which is the large version of their Italian Sub. All the subs are great though and they deliver.
