Romio's Belltown

How I heard of this place: About a decade ago, when I first moved to Seattle, I was at a friend’s home in Magnolia when we suddenly had a hankering for pizza. A block away and delivery available, our cravings were soon satisfied! Now, living in Belltown, we have the luxury of pizza just up the road…well, up any road to be honest, but Romio’s comes with a wee bit of nostalgia.

Type of cuisine: Simply: pizza & pasta.

We have 3 kinds of crust: traditional, fresh garlic, and whole-wheat berry crust (Fresh garlic, and whole-wheat berry crust .75 extra charge) 

If you want to build your own pizza, we also have other sauces available to use as a pizza base. Choose from Alfredo sauce (white sauce), Pesto sauce, BBQ sauce, Mexican sauce, Marinara sauce, Olive oil or no sauce.”

Ambiance: As with many dining establishments in Belltown, Romio’s is located on the street level of a large apartment complex, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, new-ish fixtures and clean lines, tall ceilings and sports-bar style flat screen televisions throughout.

What I ordered: Having tried their large Pizza Bianca ($20.70) with Grilled chicken, onions, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, Parmesan and mozzarella cheese with white Alfredo sauce on a gluten-free crust, this time we chose to enjoy Romio’s lunch special ($7.45 each) with two friends. We each started with a bowl of house-made potato-bacon soup,

and three of us chose the personal, two-topping 6-inch pizza to accompany our soups. Mine, pepperoni and mushroom.

The fourth among us, selected the pasta lunch special with Beef Bolognese to enjoy after soup.

What I loved: Cheese. Glorious cheese. Each pizza is topped with a generous portion of ooey, gooey, delicious cheese! The thinner crusts and gluten-free options, not to mention its proximity to home, each an added bonus.

Why I loved it: No frills; you know exactly what to expect and what you will get at Romio’s.

Cost: Low to average ($6.45 – $7.45 per lunch special, served until 3:00 p.m.)
