When I first started my job I was going to Il Romanista like twice a week. I had to curtail my visits. So much so I’m only going like once a month. Today’s visit reminded me that there aren’t many better places where you can eat lunch for under $10.
How many slices? Each slice is about $3.50 to $4. A plain slice at Vito’s, Superfine and Prime is $3 to $3.50. Most of the slices at Il Romanista have toppings so I think the pricing is right even though the Il Romanista slices may be a touch smaller.
heavy duty pizza coverage, chowseeker! how many days did it take? I personally am going with Pizza Wagon as my favorite LA slice…also, ive never had a problem at Triple Beam…found it to be extremely flavorful and I liked the slightly thicker crust(a rarity for me)…Never had a problem with heat level, whenever I get reheats, I always tell them clearly and loudly, to make sure its hot…it always has been…but love Il Romanista, too…hopefully, you get to check out South End at some point…I love what Mario Vollera is doing at this pizzeria/wine bar in Venice!
Thanks. This Pizza Journey… was a blur. We tried 3 - 4 places back to back, and the others were more tempered, depending on everyone’s schedule.
Wow, so you like Pizza Wagon’s slice of Pepperoni more than Superfine? We liked both of them for sure, but I think we liked Superfine more because the Pepperoni cups / grease chalices were crisped up more, and that San Marzano Tomato Sauce was pretty phenomenally balanced (by Chef Steve Samson and his crew). But both were great!
South End: For sure we’ll be back. We liked our initial visit and will try the flavors you recommended next time!
I think you’ll like it (I hope so)! Remember for the Caramel Coppetta with Marshmallow Sauce & Salted Spanish Peanuts, to get a bite with a bit of everything and one of the Salted Spanish Peanuts. It’s that combination of sweet and salty that makes it standout.
