Rome's Pizza's bekitsched interior provides a culinary coliseum for diners to contemplate complex, circle- and triangle-based edible math problems. Diners can play Risk with their mouth by consuming the various international flavors on Rome's pizza menu, including the Taj Mahal (with garlic, chickpeas, jalapeños, and raisin-curry olive oil, $18.20 for a large) and the shrimp scampi white pizza (with parsley, lemon pepper, and capers, $21.70). There's also plenty of traditional pizza action, such as the super deluxe with a dirty dozen toppings of your choice ($24.33) and the pesto with kalamata olives and artichoke hearts ($18.20).
Though Rome's Pizza's authentically disapproving Italian matrons don't know why you'd want anything but pizza, they'll gladly make you sandwiches, such as the steak hoagie ($6.35 for a footlong). They can also origami your pizza into a Philizone with thinly sliced rib eye ($7.50) and preface it with an appetizer of eggplant parmesan ($4.95). Rome's also casts a wide net over the rest of the Mediterranean foodscape, reeling in the odd gyro ($5.95–$6.95), hummus platter ($4.10), and djinn-containing bottle. The 2-foot blunt cudgel that is the stromboli, meanwhile, will provide both protection from angry Dan Gilbert–penned letters on the walk home and enough food to float a fiesta when you get there ($15.50, order four hours in advance).
Although they both hail from the Mediterranean, pizza and falafel don't often appear on the same menu. Diners at Rome's Pizza, however, might be prompted to wonder why—it turns out it's quite possible for one kitchen to carry both dishes off nicely. In a 2004 review, the Current's Alejandro Pérez praised the pesto pizza's "light, crispy crust and full-bodied flavor" and the falafel sandwich's "hot, crisp patties."
This juxtaposition isn't the only surprise on the extensive menu. Sure, you can get red sauce and pepperoni atop your pie, but Rome's specializes in white pizzas slicked with olive oil, herbs, and smoked garlic. Strombolis and calzones fold in on themselves to make for a hearty meal or a high-powered alternative to a water balloon, and sandwiches and pasta display the same love of big portions and off-the-beaten-path ingredients. On the Mediterranean side of the menu, there are also staples such as dolmas, hummus, and gyros.
