Tiny place. Brooklyn Italian. Family owned and managed. Love the food, especially pastas. Pizzas are delicious, but not cheap. For that, give up quality and taste and order Dominoes.

Great thin-crust pizza. We ask them to cook it a little extra to really crisp up the crust. Bonus: they sell, and customize, by the slice. You can get a small Italian salad and a 1 topping slice for about $7.... good value.

Authentic New York style pizza, cooked to perfection over a wood fired oven. Very reasonably priced. Ideal for takeout on a weeknight. Inside is casual, always busy but not overcrowded.

Consistently visited this place and it always come through! My favorites are the lobster ravioli and any of their pizzas. The sauces are delicious and the pizza crust is perfectly thin.

Love their baked Ziti here, it is so good. Their pizza is good, every now and then it is a little on the greasy side. Overall I would give it a 9. Service if friendly, helpful and reasonable. I don't think you would be disappointed if you gave it a try.

Ate here for the first and last time today. Tab on a large 16 inch special, three salads and three teas was $54. The salad dressing was watery and tasteless as the salad itself. I did almost walk out when we were ordering. We wanted to substitute ground beef on the pizza with fresh basil. i was told basil on... More

We started off with the pizza here... its AMAZING. We exclusively order out from this joint! We recently started eating other things here, like their baked ziti, chicken parm, raviolis, etc.... ALL are delicious. I think its the marinara sauce that makes it amazing. The reason i give it 4, instead of 5 stars, is because the entrees are as... More

No one makes NY style pizza like Romano's. And you can get some Queens NY attitude with it. Guys are standoffish friendly. All the pasta dishes are good. Unpretentious and cool.

We ate there with family members who are locals. Looks like a carry out pizza place walking in. Once we sat down and ordered, our impression changed. Pasta was generous and delicious. Chicken and veal dishes also good and more than enough for leftovers. Even the house wine went with the meal very well. You can get everything from a... More
