Editor’s Note: In 2021, Michael and Nicole Borrell began reviewing Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. Since then, the couple has aimed to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer. LebTown is pleased to be partnering with LVFC to share these reviews with our readers. Bon appétit!

Since one critic decided to take a guest critic on another Wing Wars trip, I decided to grab some pizza and head to my parents’ house to treat them for all that they do for us. After talking with my coworkers who live in the Palmyra area the day before, I decided to stop by Roma Pizza on the corner of Railroad and Main streets in Palmyra. A small little pizza shop on the outside, they offered a pickup window on the side of the building that I happily used. (Good thing it was a little bit warmer that day and it was an option!)

I opted to get two different options to give us a little variety tonight. I found a nice menu on their website and searched for the perfect combo. Our first choice would be the bruschetta pizza, a white pizza with olive oil, tomato, basil, and a lot of garlic. It made my car smell delicious as I went on my way. It was as delicious as it smelled, and our little critic loved it so much that she grabbed an extra little slice and ate the whole thing on our way back to our house after dinner. You know it’s good pizza when a toddler eats more than one slice!

For our second option we went with a regular stromboli, packed with meats and cheese. I thought I had ordered a small, but as you can see from the picture it was anything but! After the stromboli I had gotten a few months back at B&A in Lebanon, this one had a lot of the same components as a butter and herb glaze, but nothing can compare to B&A. Regardless, my dad really enjoyed it and it was great for a second meal as well. The only thing I would say that wasn’t so great is that there was a large amount of the corners that was just dough, no cheese or meat. The marinara that was included to dip the boli in was good as well, I bet it tastes great on their traditional pizzas.

Our take: Roma Pizza is a classic small town pizza shop. They have a following, and next time we order from there we may take my coworker’s recommendation and get a Sicilian pizza. They don’t skimp on flavor, as the bruschetta pizza had a perfect amount of garlic for us. We all know that Lebanon Valley has a lot of pizza shops and it’s hard to choose the best, but Roma quickly became a contender for the top of the list!

We give this place ????.
