General Manager

Matthew Di Gesu is the managing partner, resident pizza man and general manager of Pizzeria La Rosa. 

Matt has spent the last 15 years honing his craft across pizzeria's in New York City and California. This included time working with his partner Frank Pinello at Best Pizza. At Best Pizza, Frank taught Matt the art of cooking in a wood fired oven, making mozzarella, brining meats and cooking with seasonal ingredients. In 2016, Matt found the La Rosa location. With the help of Ottavio's Studio Construction, he led the revival of the 100 year old space.

Matt is passionate about creating the highest quality food and best customer experience for his patrons. If you're at Pizza La Rosa, you'll likely see him making pizza or checking in on your table.
