It's a sad day for all of us who have been loyal customers of Romano's restaurant. There has never been a thin crust pizza that can compare with Romano's. We hope they can either re-open or find another location soon!

I asked for an esspresso, and got strong instant coffee. Did romano's think we are stupid? Good riddance.

Go to hell, Joe. We're going to miss the pizza. Go to stupid Starbucks and choke on your expresso.
