If your looking for excellent pizza then Romas Back Door is the place to go, HOWEVER if your looking for a great meal then keep looking. The new design and decor is beautiful but dont let that fool you. My boyfriend Justin and I dined in at Romas last night and we were far from impressed. The waiter seated us to our table and was very flirty only making eye contact with me and ignoring Justin completely. Justin ordered the 4oz cod with spaghetti and the salad bar with a water to drink. I ordered the chicken linguini in a lemon butter caper sauce and a 16oz budlight draft to drink. The waiter went to the computer to put our order in but came back quickly to ask me what kind of sauce I wanted with my chicken linguini. I explained to him that the menu said it came in a lemon butter caper sauce he said "oh okay" and went back to putting our order in.?? After about 30 minuets the waiter brought our meals to us. Justin had 2 small pieces of cod and a small bowl of spaghetti priced at about $10.00 and my meal did not look appetizing at all but I decided to try it anyways. After 4 bites I just was not pleased.The chicken was very dry and the vegetables tasteless priced at $12.99. I asked Justin how his was and he said the fish was good but the spaghetti wasn't anything special. He checked the salad bar but said it was bare. When the waiter came to check on us to see how our meal was I kindly asked him to take mine, asked him about my budlight draft, and I ordered a half order of fettucine alfredo priced at $9.99 thinking you cant go wrong with that but apparently I was wrong. The waiter brought the pasta back quick (along with my beer this time) and it was hot and the noodles cooked great but the alfredo sauce that makes the pasta what it is was terribly bland. I asked Justin to try it to see if maybe it was just me so he tried the pasta dish and said it tasted like a michelinas microwave meal. Just before the alfredo was brought to me the owner came out and asked the couple at the table next to us if they had ordered the sun dried tomato pesto. She said no and confused had asked us if we had, I said no and the owner went to the back room. He came back again but this time to our table and asked me again if i had ordered the sun dried tomato pesto. I told him no I ordered the chicken linguini at which point our waiter had walked by and said yeah it was chicken linguini NOT sun dried tomato pesto. The owner then asked me "So you just weren't impressed?" I told him no i'm sorry it just wasn't very good at all. he said "okay" and went to the back room. Shortly after, the waiter brought our bill and we noticed they had taken off the chicken linguini but still charged us for the half order of fettucine alfredo which was fine. As Justin was paying the $23.00 bill and I was finishing my beer, we noticed the couple next to us having a meal removed from their bill as well AND right after we overheard the waiter taking a meal off of the couples bill behind us as well as giving them and additional 10% off. We still gave the waiter a tip but also wanted to give the people coming in a tip that maybe they should try somewhere else first. Overall experience : dissatisfied.

I've gone to Roma's for years now and then. I've never honestly had a bad experience.
Today we explored the "Chicago" style pizza. I was skeptical at first because some places don't actually make Chicago pizza! I took a leap of faith, and

We planned dinner at Roma's Back Door and a movie at NCG cinemas over the summer since they are so close. Service was good at Roma's but the food wasn't. My husband ordered a pasta dish (it is an italian place) and was pretty disappointed with the taste. Can't remember what I had, which may say something too.
