I love NY pizza. So when I hear the reviews of Romano's, I went. I fail to see the comparison to their pizza and NY pizza other than the general circular appearance. It was not...

Good Food. 11/11/2011

New York Style fo sho 12/29/2009

They make the pizza in front of you, so you know it's fresh. I love it here b/c they are the only ones who put enough sauce in the pizza to satisfy my taste! yum yum yum... Pros: Plenty of parking space, pizza consistently good Cons: nothing! more

Time for change 7/5/2009

The pizza sauces need to be updated for sure, they taste like they came out of the can to the pizza, they need more flavor, garlic, oregano etc Pros: good location Cons: pizza sauces more

Great Food 5/11/2009

Lunch menu is cheap. the pizza is great. service is usually very quick. I eat there all the time. In comparison to other Italian restaurants the food is on the top of my list. Pros: Reall good pizza and Lunch menu Cons: sometimes people can be rude more

Good Food, Rude People 9/22/2008

Have always enjoyed the food here until the other night when we were refused service. The hours on the door read that the restaurant is open until 10:00 pm. We walked in the door at 9:30 and were told we could only order to go. There were quite a few tables with people still eating and they refused to let us sit to enjoy our meal. Needless to say we did not order. We were very disappointed with the way we were treated and are finding very hard to return. more

Best. Cheese. Pizza. Anywhere. Period. 7/24/2008

The title says it all. I've never even tried any of their other pizza because I'm so addicted to the New York style cheese pizza. Everytime we go, we each order a house salad and a piece of thin-crust cheese pizza. (Hot enough that you have to bite into it c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y; plenty of yummy cheese and not too much sauce; tasty crust that isn't overly crispy!) Then we split a piece of Romano's amazing cheesecake. Pros: Best thin crust cheese pizza I've ever had. Cons: The pieces are huge; I can only eat one slice! :-( more

Awsome 7/11/2008

A bit pricey, BUT so totally WORTH IT!!! By far the best pizza in town. Everything is so fresh and just melts in your mouth!!! Pros: Service Cons: A bit pricey more

You must be kidding... 6/23/2008

$24.26 for a medium (14"") thin crust vegetable pizza. That?s like 5oz of bread & a few vegetables. There was practically no sauce or cheese. It was it was a terrible pizza, worst I've ever had. Twenty-five bucks?? Comon, it cost less than a dollar or two to make that pizza, the box was probably more expensive than the pizza. I'm not making any money off this business, why should I arbitrarily kick in on the rent?? I will never, ever, EVER, go back to that place. Pros: I don't ever have to go back there. Cons: Price is audacious, pizza is terrible, skimped on ingredients. more

My first choice for pizza in a city where you can get it everywhere 6/18/2008

Easily the best New York style pizza in the Houston, and I try it at different restaurants every chance I get. They also have some great seafood pastas which my girlfriend adores. I recommend their chicken francese. Although the layout of the restaurant is a little weird, their food more than makes up for it. Go there and I guarantee you will return. Pros: The food Cons: If only they had a bar, I would probably spend more time there more

the owners, 5/9/2008

do they write their own reviews? just curious, seems like they do. makes it hard to understand which is a credible review and/or opinion, and which is not. more

Love This Place! Great Pizza and People 4/23/2008

My fiance use to live down in mid-town when we were dating. I lived in the woodlands so we'd occasionally grab a pizza at Romanos. This place is family owned and the people are very nice. I got to the point where if I was in town I'd stop by Romanos on my way home just so I could get a pizza to-go. The owners started to recognize me since I went there so much. Now, we live in Cinco Ranch in Katy but still attend church in the midtown area. We sometimes will decide not to eat pizza on a Friday or Saturday just so we can have Ramonos on Sunday. Pros: Awesome Pizza more

Alright Pizza with BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE 3/7/2008

Ya know, when I first moved to the Houston area, I heard people raving about this place. So I went to try is out. I am not a complex girl, so ofcource, I ordered a basic pepporoni pizza. Well, the pizza came and it was just ""ok"". NOTHING TO GO CRAZY OVER. So when I got home, I called the place to just give my input, I asked to speak with the manager, and some waiter with an ego trip was qustioning as to why I needed to speak with the manager. As if a manager of a pizza shop was the president. Finally, this guy was just so rude, I hung up. Well, this just really made me more disappointed, so the next day I was at work with this on my mind, so I called back, this time asking for the owner. Well I guess this place is so ""high end"" the owner does not feel it is important for him to come to the phone to hear feedback from his customers. So, all in all, over price average pizza with a bad attitude. Cons: EVERYTHING more

Very close to New York. 10/5/2007

After reading the editorial reviews on this and one other city guide about how expat NYers like me would love this place, I finally got a chance to visit this past weekend. You can tell from looking at the display exactly what it's going to taste like. Pros: Pizza (Haven't had any of their other dishes) more

Best NY style pizza in TX! 10/5/2007

Being a native NYer living in TX, I thought I'd have to book a plane ticket every time I got a craving for good pizza. Luckily though, I found Romano's on West Gray. When you walk through the glass doors, you feel like you've been transplanted to NY. They have the Yankees playing on the TV and the NY accents being thrown at you when you order your food. My husband and I are so glad we found this place. The pizza and pasta dishes are delicious. My hubby and I are big fans of the Chicken Francese and Chicken Marsala. more

haven't found a better chicken marsala! 7/24/2007

THE BEST!!! I remember when Romano's first open, back when the Marshall's next door was a movie theater. I wasn't sure if the place would make it, but I am so glad they did! My family loves the place! We have been loyal customers for years. I wish they still did delivery. I have yet to find any Italian restaurant that can beat their Chicken Marsala. And their meat sauce is to die for! I can't tell you how much I love this place. You just can't top this place!!!! Pros: wonderfully simple italian food, great staff Cons: they don't deliver anymore :( more

Best NY pizza outside out NY and Vinny and Franky are awsome 6/23/2007

Real NY pizza in Texas...WOW! Pros: the next best thing to being in NY for pizza and casual itialian food Cons: really crowded at peak times, hard to get a table more

Hands down the best Italian Food/Pizza in Houston. 6/8/2007

In response to the previous post, ""the owners"", I'm guessing you've never met ""the owners"". If you ever meet them you'll see, they'd never be caught dead writing reviews on a computer, just doesn't go hand in hand with their Italian bravado. Pros: Great Pizza and Delicious Pasta Cons: Gets very busy at times more

Can you REALLY trust city search? 5/7/2007

I see that citysearch has 5 stars for so many restaurants...a lot that stink... the reason I'm saying this on here is because of the ""authentic"" NY taste. I'm a born and bred Manhattanite living in Houston. I don't think it's physically possible to match NY pizza. Although they do a good pizza here. Smaller than NY, a little thinner too. More expensive for other Italian staples. Salads are small for what you pay. I would still recommend it anyway. more
