Roma Gourmet on the hill

HungryHipster | Apr 10, 2008 11:40 AM

Has anyone been to the new Roma since they changed things? Although they've cleaning up the store and added more seating - they've drastically increased the prices of the food. Since when should a sandwich with JUST mozzarella and prosciutto be $7? Since when should an EXTREMELY skimpy "Italian" be $5.50? Before the renovation, it cost $4.25 - and it was STUFFED with fresh cold cuts. They also don't have pasta fagioli everyday anymore - and now the small soup is $1 more per pint than it previously was. Other things that pissed me off? They changed the meatball recipe. Once lovingly made by a dear old italian lady in back - they now taste like the freezer bag variety. Oh, and they have buffalo and bqq chicken pizza now. SERIOUSLY? Yeah, thats sooo Italian.
So now that my favorite Italian deli is ruined, I ask, is there anywhere else? I know of the others on the hill - but, I dislike Venda since they MICROWAVE the hot food - among other pet peeves about the place.
Is there somewhere else? I'll drive to the end of the earth for good, fresh, fast Italian food. Ideally, it has good cheese, fresh bread, fresh cold cuts, maybe some hot food and soup - and prices worth paying....
