Yelper Andie F. wrote, "Come in for the pizza and stay for the show. Seriously, this place is great, and Lou is one guy who really seems to love what he does for a living. When you walk in, you are in an old-school pizzeria, and that's just the way it should be. There are pictures on the wall, a few booths and you head straight back to the counter. There are a couple of specialty pies each day, and then your traditional plain pie."
4. Roma II Pizza
