Rome Pizzeria & Grill
Rome Pizza is under new ownership as of August 2010. See new entry here.
Oh boy. I suppose Rome Pizzeria ain’t doing too well either – seeing that the entire space is for sale for a “just reduced” quarter million dollars!
Do you think a restaurant of any kind would do well here? If so – what would be ideal?
(of course the realtor used 411 shots of the joint)

Working out the kinks?
Nothing is more frustrating than a meal that is difficult to eat.
Last week, I placed an order from Rome Pizzeria (large pie, half pepperoni). Perhaps the expectations were high, but I was disappointed upon opening the box. While the delivery was prompt and priced reasonably – the packaging job seemed rushed, as the pizza was jammed in the box and quite sloppy. Taste was average at best, and “doughy” most accurately describes the crust.
Since Pizza is the world’s favorite food – I’ll give them another chance. But hope they can get their act together!

Reason to rejoice!
Anytime a new pizza place opens anywhere in the world – it’s reason to celebrate.
This time, we’re lucky enough to have a brand new one in our very own Hoboken:
Rome Pizzeria & Grill!
Stopped in yesterday just to introduce myself – and spoke with John Lolicato and his wife, who have been quietly open for about the past week.
John was the original owner of Hoboken Pizza a decade ago – and you can tell, because the sauce at Rome Pizza is very similar (good – but I ate it cold!) They’ll eventually get a new sign for the building, but you know what a hassle that is – and the old City Diner sign is actually still drawing attention!
I didn’t have much time to chat since a friend was waiting in the car out front, but they’re open till 10pm weeknights (with later weekend hours). Give it a shot and share your opinions in the comment section!
