Very Good!

Service is extremely slow; however the food was great and the portions were huge. It's also a byob. For 4 people our bill was only $63 so reasonable prices.

I had the chicken marsala, which was pretty good. Their bruschetta was unique and included fresh herbs and cheese. It was nice that they cater to gluten free, which was very much enjoyed by the person who is gluten free in our group. It was a very low key dining experience, but nothing really wowed me and there isn't a... More

The place is ok. Food for a pizzeria is good. Wait staff lately is good, although I've had problems in the past with surly attitudes from wait staff. Bottom line is the food for the most part in my opinion is good, but their prices are higher than nearby competition, and there are plenty of close by places with just... More

First stop on our vegan tour of the mid-coast of New Jersey. Stopped here the first night late on a Thursday. Got there a half hour before they closed but they served us as graciously. One vegan, one vegetarian, and two omnivores were all happy and well-fed at the same place. Vegan had baked ziti with lots of melty vegan... More

Wow an extensive gluten free menu and many options the gluten lovers. Pasta dishes, both GF and regular excelled in quality, taste and portions. My wife had leftovers for two lunches. The Gnocchi were excellent, as was the chicken pizza . The only miss was the GF cake. It was dry, maybe because it was vegan as well? Service team... More

Went here in a group who was anxious to dig into the various gluten free items. We are connoisseurs in this department. The gf mozzarella sticks were awesome. The gf veal parm was awesome. The breaking on both these items was great and had flavor. However, the gf pizza crust wasn't great. It wasn't crunchy and was more like biting... More

Cute little pizzeria/italian restaurant right across the street from the Ramada. It is a BYOB, which is nice. Food was delicious and portions were good sized. We did wait a little long for the food, but they were a bit busy so we expected it. Overall very satisfied.

My family was hosting a small party at the beach. We wanted to cook as little as possible and enjoy our company. My sister suggested Via Roma for their delicious food. We were not let down. Delicious apps and sandwiches that made the gathering less stressful and enjoyable. Would highly recommend.
