    Awesome! Friendly staff, attentive, mom and pops atmosphere. Then the cheese steaks and boli came out. I've had a lot of cheese steaks and bolis. By far the best I've ever had. Big, stuffed and delicious. The red sauce with the boli was incredible. If your in the area, go and don't think twice. Get the boli. You won't regret it

    This place is very cool. Great food, great service. How can you not like the place that invented the Stromboli?

    We stopped in on NYE this year and ordered the broccoli and chicken stromboli and the Italian Lemon cake and they were both out of this world!! We try to stop in as often as we're in the area! Our go-to stromboli place!!

    Recommend the square pizza anytime and the milkshakes are phenomenal. We've visited Romano's as often as I can since 1981 -it's a great family run business and the Stromboli is top notch.
