Surprises abound at Romano's Pizza in Litchfield

Since we have family in the Litchfield area, we have passed by Romano's Pizza many times without even blinking an eye. When we recently found ourselves looking for a place to eat before our nephew’s holiday concert and given that there are not many options in this area we decided to try Romano's Pizza. You are going to like what we found.

The restaurant is set back from the main road. It is larger inside than you might think with a front take out area and a dining room and a bar downstairs. I had assumed that this restaurant was purely take out and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Anyway, you can see how their dining room looks below:

Although we did not sample, if you like an occasionally adult beverage they have some low priced options. For example, the gin & tonic is only $3.99.

We looked over a broad menu and they have a variety of options including Italian specialties, calzones, pizza, salads, subs and a children’s menu. We were in the mood for meatballs tonight so I chose their meatball parm sub and French fries.

The sandwich was good. The meatballs had plenty of meat and less bread the way I prefer. Only wish they had been a little bigger.

The fries were hand cut and lightly salted, delicious

My wife selected their penne with meatballs which was served with garlic bread. She enjoyed her meal as well.

All of their Italian dinners include garlic bread and a salad making this a great value.

Our waitress was friendly and professional. The manager also stopped by to make sure we were enjoying our meal. This is always a plus in my eyes.

So there you have it, for those who live in the area you probably already know about Romano's Pizza. For everyone else we recommend a trip as surprises do abound if you take the time to visit.
