Pizza Roma and Pasta House, Cranberry, PA
20315 Rt. 19 Cranberry Township, PA
Pizza Roma and Pasta House has been a fixture in Cranberry for over 26 years. It's easy to see why they have been in business for such a long time - the pizza was excellent and the staff was very friendly.
We ordered a traditional crust pizza with red pizza sauce. The sauce is homemade; it is deep, rich and flavorful. The cheese for the pizzas is shredded on the premises and it is very fresh tasting. We especially liked the crust - it was thin, but sturdy enough to hold up to the extra sauce that we ordered. The pizzas are baked in Pizza Roma's "old-fashioned stone ovens".
Pizza Roma has three new varities of Specialty Pizza - Spinach Feta, Steak Ranch and Onion, and Buffalo Chicken. Other pizzas include Sicilian style, Seafood Pizza (with red or white sauce), White Pizza and Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza. In addition to the pizzas, they serve eight types of hoagies, six different types of calzone, Sandwiches and Burgers, wings and wing wings, salads and appetizers. Dinners are also available, and include pasta, gnocchi, veal and chicken parmesan, eggplant and more. We are especially interested in trying their Stuffed Hot Pepper Calzone and some of their homemade soup on our next trip.
Pizza Roma has a fairly large and comfortable dining area and a small bar. They also offer take-out and delivery to the Cranberry area.
