The pizza-making proprietors here are originally from Ozone Park, Queens, and they know how to make a thin-crust New York pizza. Furthermore, they make their oven-toasted sausage and pepper sandwiches with real Italian sausage, thin-cut diagonally. No wonder the place is packed with transplanted New Yorkers. With the new tile floors, designer lighting fixtures and outdoor seating, Pizza Romano also looks a lot fancier than it used to.
