Best Pizza Ever

We picked up 3 pizzas at 5:30 (Saturday winter) and saw the restaurant fill up quickly. What a delicious menu! But takeaway is limited to pizza and salad. They are also only open 5-8, Tues-Sat. Great thin crust, hand tossed with top quality ingredients.

They have very different pizzas, something for everyone, even gluten free and vegan. They are a little difficult to find if you don't know where to look, but it's worth a call to them for directions.

The cheese pizza at When in Rome is to die for. I will be back again and again. Hopefully to try something else.

We'd been traveling a few days and really wanted a good salad. They did not disappoint on the several salad choices. The menu was a bit limited for us Vegetarians but we still had options. We got the veggie pizza (way way too many black olives, very few veggies - I suggest ordering without those unless you love that excess).... More

We had a nice dinner at When in Rome-the menu was awesome, service was good but you would not expect that from a strip mall type restaurant. We sat outside-it was nice night and it was very good.

Quite possibly the best food I have ever eaten! No wonder this place was mobbed when we pulled in! Don't let the location put you off, this place is the real deal! I've traveled all over Italy and this place is every bit as good as anything I've had there. Bruschetta was out of this world fresh! Caprese was beautifully... More

The food at this restaurant it amazing but don't expect them to come by your table and wait on you if you have a tee shirt on. My family is new to the area and we never really herd anything about them but decided to go anyway because we wanted some good Italian and some wine but our DD waited... More

pizzamontana, Owner at When in Rome, responded to this review

Well over half of our customers who dine with us do so in jeans and a t-shirt. We do not have a dress code and accommodate a wide variety of customers, from those dressed up for the play to people just coming off the lake or from a day skiing on the mountain. We have never, ever delayed service or... More
