Delicious!

What a fun little place to find! I'd gone to my two "regular" places only to find lines going out the doors. On a whim, I stopped by Roman Candle. So happy that I did! Service was excellent and the variety of pizza/pasta was great. Being a huge pesto fan, I got the Pestoral Pizza (made to... read more

Our visit to the Roman Candle will not go down in History. Service was extremely slow, but in defense of the establishment, they said they had a large lunch crowd which wiped them out. Wiped them out of silverware, glasses, dishes and probably wait staff too. Service was extremely slow.

Decent pizza, good feel for the neighborhood. Not much else on the menu but is good for our area. Pizza is ok.

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.

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!

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.
