Excellent pizza, but a chilly restaurant
The pizzas were really great at Roman's, the service was fine, but the big stone tables are very cold if leaning on them. The place was very quiet when we were in. It was very early on a Saturday (5pm), but I would expect people to be in "post-shopping". It got a bit busier before we left (7ish), but since the pizzas are so good I'd hope this place gets much more custom in the coming weeks and months.
We'll be back, but I'll be wearing warmer clothes next time!!
The pizzas were fantastic!
Stylish pizzeria in the Merchant City
Romans Pizzeria & Bar is a rustic-chic dining spot in the Merchant City. Minimalist decor and Italian wall murals create the perfect setting for enjoying Roman-style pizzas cooked in a wood-burning oven. This would be a great spot for a quick bite to eat before an event at the Tron or Old Fruitmarket.
Authentic pizza with a contemporary twist
The restaurant serves thin and crispy Romana style pizzas made on the premises using Caputo flour. For extra authentic flavours, all mozzarella and tomatoes are sourced from Campania in Italy. Pizzas can be served with a red sauce, white sauce or no sauce base.
Menus can change, but choices might include the shredded chicken breast marinated in BBQ sauce with roasted red peppers, the pulled pork with mozzarella, chorizo, salami, pancetta and Tuscan sausage, and even a smashed beef burger pizza with mac ‘n’ cheese and pancetta. Vegetarian choices include the blue cheese with mozzarella, cauliflower couscous, mushrooms, rosemary and smoked beetroot, while plant-based dieters can tuck into a vegan mozzarella pizza with smoked vegan chicken, onions, mushrooms and gherkins. A children’s menu is also available.
Merchant City attractions
Romans Pizzeria & Bar is on Candleriggs in the Merchant City. As mentioned, it is handy for both the Tron Theatre and Old Fruitmarket, as well as the Argyle Street shops and Gallery of Modern Art. Both Glasgow Central and Queen Street station are around a ten-minute walk away and you can find pay parking on the street outside.
