Our favourite Locke St, Hamilton Italian pizza place has opened a new location in my city, making it infinitely easier for me to add a few pounds to my hips via their mouth-watering pizza. NaRoma Pizza in Burlington is now open, and serving up delicious gourmet pizza for dine-in and take-out.
I fell in love with NaRoma’s Brie & Prosciutto pizza a few years ago when trying out the Locke St. restaurant as part of a Dishcrawl event. The tasty blend of savoury prosciutto, brie and arugula, contrasting with the hint of sweet fig jam and balsamic syrup drizzled on top cannot be adequately expressed with words. You just have to try it. Trust me when I say it’s delicious.
NaRoma reminds us of our favourite UK pizza restaurant chain Pizza Express, where you can enjoy a casual dining experience with appetizers, salads, pizza, dessert and a cocktail or wine if you so choose.
The décor at the Burlington location is modern and clean with broad wood-covered tables that can fit two large pizza platters, and padded bench seating and comfortable chairs. Large photos grace the walls. While dimmer lights could make for a romantic mood, the bright lighting means there’s no need to squint to see what you’re eating (not to mention, you can easily take photos to post to Instagram!).
While the menu is heavily focused on pizza, there are other options that do just as nicely. Their Caesar Salad is made with in-house dressing and crispy pancetta. A selection of beers, martinis and cocktails transform NaRoma from a simple pizza joint to a great spot for casual dining.
NaRoma also has a cool way of customizing their pizzas so that you can have more than one pizza flavour in one pizza. For example, with the Coppia choice you get about 12 slices and a choice of 2 flavours. So, for example, the brie and prosciutto pizza could be paired with their pollo pizza on one crust. This makes it perfect for a couple to choose their own preferences, or to share and explore more than one flavour. Not to mention, it helps when you can’t decide between two options!
Fresh ingredients, a perfect crust and friendly staff make NaRoma at 901 Brant Street our newest option for a delicious date night out.
You can also call in or drop in for take-out – we saw many people come in to pick up anything from a small pizza to a large order for the whole family.
