You might assume Go Roma is just another of those places where
you order at the counter and then wait for your pre-made sandwiches
to arrive. But really the only thing Go Roma has in common with
those other spots is the affordable price.
Every meal is made to order, from fresh salads and Paninis to
delicate flatbread pizzas. As if fresh, made-to-order food weren't

entrée) every Sunday for lunch or dinner.
"Go for 2" options (all under $8) allow you to combine

pizza, chicken strips, pasta and mac & cheese. Kids' meals come
with a drink and cookie for $4.49.
We were too full to sample the restaurant's desserts, but
it does offer a host of Italian gelatos, plus Apple Crostada and
Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake. Fast, friendly service, plus free
Wi-Fi access, round out the experience.
