We consider our customers family…
Drawn by the vintage soda fountain bar and 100 year old Petersen oven, Matt DiGesu and Frank Pinello took a year and half to restore this historic pizzeria back to its former glory. The vision was, and will always be, to provide an inclusive place where those in the Westchester, Bronx and New York metro area can gather and enjoy a great Italian meal.
We believe everyone deserves fresh homemade ingredients…
Pizzeria La Rosa provides a menu of classic Neapolitan meets New York style wood fired pizzas, seasonal salads, side dishes and Italian desserts. All our food is made in house with fresh ingredients. We also have a bar that offers a modest selection of curated cocktails and wine, as well as a selection of craft and domestic beers.
