Great Pizza!

We stopped by this cute little restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. They were advertising a Pizza of the Month and we decided it looked good and ordered it. The Chix Chix Parm Parm pizza was fabulous! I could not get over how fresh the tomato sauce tasted!

I'm sorry but my last visit left a lot to be desired. I ate two over priced slices that were sub par at best. I haven't been to Roman Candle in a couple of years since this bad experience so perhaps it's gotten better, I don't know. But based on my visit from a couple of years ago I'm gun... More

Pizza, baked mac n' cheese, and ice cream were all excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the food was quick and friendly.

Vary nice place inside. Has a local feeling. Had a 12in pizza and hand twisted bread sticks with sauce. Vary good. I like the thin crust. We eat inside for lunch, clean and friendly, service was good too. This was a lunch with a coworker. Will bring the family next time.

I gave this pizza 2 shots because I've heard good things and really wanted to like it. I really enjoy liking a new pizza because it gives you one more option in the world of the single greatest culinary creation in the history of the universe. I'm pretty sure Roman Candle makes pizza aimed at the under 10 year old... More

Stopped in here for slices of pizza with two friend's because other friend's suggested this cute little pizza parlor. I give it a thumbs up. Great tasting pizza. Not a fancy place and not over priced,good service and ample seating. I would happily eat here again.

Roman Candle is an ideal place to enjoy a fresh caesar salad, a tasty pizza, and a great local brew. Kind of small, so get there early. Limited seating on the sidewalk. Pizza's are diverse and the sauces are fantastic.

I really like what this Willy Street Roman Candle does with simple ingredients! I really like the "Veggie Candle," with it's spicy sauce-artichokes-banana peppers. Most often, we split a house salad and order the "Roman Candle" which is like the Veggie Candle plus sausage. Work your way through the micro brews, too.

Fun pizzareria with good food, even my picky 14 year old loved it. One caveat, pizza is made fresh and takes some time, but well worth it.
