“Good and plentiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

I'm on a mission to find the best calzone in Virginia. I ordered their ham calzone and they use thin-sliced with plenty of cheese. I would recommend it. I also had an order of calamari, and it was surprisingly tasty. Excellent location especially if you're staying at the Hampton Inn in Sterling.

“Surprisingly delicous pasta meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I was in the area for a week long class. Decided to try them out as they're take out menu's are in the hotel where I was staying. I ordered a chicken fettuccini meal with salad. The salad wasn't bad but the fettuccini was very delicous. I expected it to be bland but it was flavorful, hot and taste and you get a lot with dinner portions. I certainly could not eat it all.

“Nicer selection of really tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I was in the area, spending two weeks in a hotel without evening food service. The hotel staff suggested delivery from Romano's. I enjoyed Pizza, Stomboli, and Calzones, all delivered quickly, within the time promised, and prepared as ordered. The delivery person was very nice as well. The food I received was VERY TASTY, the quality far surpassed what one would expect for the price, i.e. the prices make for a high value dining experience.

“Pizza Night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great pizza. Able to handle a large order and everything was as ordered! Took a bit for delivery, though it was a lot of food!

“Best Pizza-Deli in Sterling Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

Our daughter recommended Romano's Pizzeria & Deli two years ago. Since then, my wife and I eat their food at least four -six days a week, as she can no longer cook due to medical issues. We have tried almost everything on the menu and it's all good, but we have our preferences. The owners (Sam and Neil) are gracious, fast and strive to please every customer - every time. All food is prepared to order and delivery is fast, although I usually pick it up myself so I can talk to the staffwhile it's being prepared.

In addition to the hand made pizzas, the chicken salad (either on a sandwitch or salad) is outstanding. Sam is the talented "magic chef" whose skill makes every serving a delectible delight to eat.

While a bit hard to find, the first time, Romana's Pizzeria & Deli is worth the effort. Closed on Sundays, so we have 2nd-best from another local food vendor. We highly recommend Romana's Pizzeria & Deli - it isn't fancy; just great food.
