1960's - 1960 – The Second Generation
The1960’s brought a lot of change to Romano’s. The restaurant’s notoriety was growing at a rapid pace and it was one of the most popular Italian restaurants in the area. As for Nat’s Stromboli Sandwiches, well that was another thing. Because the restaurant was so close to the Philadelphia Airport, there was always a steady flow of ‘out-of-towners’ who carried tales of the soon-to-be-famous Stromboli Sandwich to points all over the U.S. It wasn’t long before other restaurants tried to copy the Stromboli – but they never got it quite right. Nobody understood that a Stromboli wasn’t just cold cuts baked in pizza dough.
