I think you answered your own question. They are closed.


They are moving to Blairstown. I saw it on a Blairstown Facebook page


Too bad they didn't it make in Hastings . Not the very best pizza in the area , but you couldn't beat a dollar a slice and the very friendly people working there .

Dammit that's where we usually get our pizza from. They had a good deal for 2 plain pies.

That's a shame. We used to get pizza there all the time when we lived in Hastings. They did have good deals and nice people, but the place was always empty.

I just saw yesterday that this is coming to Blairstown. It'll be literally in front of the longest standing pizza joint we currently have. What do they have besides pizza, as the name says "and grill"?

John and Jimmy are great guys! We live in Hastings and went there often. Bummed they moved! :-(

Was that the pizza place in the old Hackettstown mall?

Where in Blairstown? Their FB page say across from the graveyard near Tractoe Supply, by Dominick’s has been there for years. Can’t imagine a pizza place going next to a pizza place.

Bug3, you may be thinking of Mama's. However that was many moons ago!!

Yes, Roman's pizza was inside the Hackettstown mall.
Mama's was outside the mall, actually in another building.

Bug3, yes, Roman Pizza was once located in the old Hackettstown mall. Prior to that they were in the Rickaway mall where Friendly's is now.


Romans Pizza was in the Hastings Square Development Strip Mall across from the UPS Store.

There's a new pizzeria (Bruno's) right next to the former Roman location. I haven't tried it myself yet, but I met the owners - they are local to H'town and they seem to have quite a bit of experience in the pizza business.

I wish them well, but also would like to know how their pizza stacks up against other places in the area.

Bruno’s is now opened just picked up a menu but did not try the pizza yet. It looks good though and reasonably priced.

Picked up 2 large pies one with sausage which was crumbled all over the pie & a large plain pie with extra sauce & well done. Both were excellent. I work at Heath Village & everyone there loved the pizzas, sandwiches & the calzones. I strongly recommend this new business to the neighborhood.

Awesome - great to know!


We may or may not have had their pizza three times already. Lol... It's delicious!! Just to compare what style pizza we like around town... Sonny's is one of our favorite spots. Brunos will probably be out new go to place being that it's so close to our home, they're so friendly, and their pizza gets a 10 for price. Wishing them lots of luck!


If you ever been to the pizza place at the rockaway mall food court it’s the same owners/food. They opened at Hastings after they left the P’burg mall

Bruno's was located in the Stryker's Road Plaza in Lopatcong before he moved to the P'burg Mall. He sure does bounce around quite a bit. No complaints about the pizza, though. I liked his "bruschetta" pie topped with diced tomatoes, red onion and basil.

Had stuffed shells at Bruno's last night.. it was delicious! The owner was so accommodating about how I wanted it prepared. Came with salad and bread. We needed a place that makes good Italian food. Pizza looked good. Will try that next time. Should definitely give it a try.

Went to Bruno's again this week. Got mozarella sticks that were the best I have ever
had. The pizza was delicious too. Friendly staff, and good quality food.

My family tried Bruno's on Saturday night and the food was delicious. Everything made fresh to order, piping hot, and generously served. The family was lovely and hard working. Glad to have another family owned business in the area. We didn't try the pizza, but looking forward to that next time.


What's the inside like?

It's not fancy, but they have tables set up so you can dine in if you wish. Traditional "pizzeria" booths and some regular tables with chairs. Looks like they might have had some tables outside in the back too. It's not located where Roman was, but where the Mediterranean place was (next to the Chinese place).


Went to Bruno's again this week. The pizza is the best! Tried a chicken parm sandwich too. The bread was real Italian with tender chicken fresh cheese and great sauce. Owners are friendly and aim to please. Great food!!

Unfortunately there delivery service is horrendous... Haven't had a good experience out of 3 deliveries. Unfortunately that'll be our last. Food isn't bad. They never send the drover with change. Puts you in a bad spot giving bigger tip than expected. Last delivery was a couple of items but they laid all the stuff on top of the Sicilian pizza we ordered and the cardboard became one with the cheese and of course they didnt have change. Just to many mistakes... If there still there in a year we will try again.

So far we had the stuffed shells and the baked ziti. There were 5 stuffed shells, a bigger portion than most places, but not as tasty as we've had in other restaurants. The baked ziti had a really nice flavor, but it really wasn't *baked* --- it was very lightly sauced ziti on a plate with mozzerella melted on top....... which in fact hardened pretty soon. I wish places would serve baked ziti (as well as eggplant parmisian) the correct way ...... in the metal serving dish, actually baked in an oven.
So delicious that way, juicy and cheesy and stays hot so the cheese stays melted.
The salad that accompanied the meals was generous and very fresh and nicely presented in a large white bowl.
We'll try the pizza next as we were not really thrilled with the meals.

We've ordered delivery from there and never had an issue. The pizza and sandwiches are always great. The cheese is actual real mozzarella, not that cheap stuff that ends up looking like plastic poured over the pie. It actually strings when you pull the slice away. We usually pick upon the way home when we've been out for the day but the kid the delivers is actually the owner's son. He's always very polite and friendly too, just like his parents. They are always happy to see us when we come in and are very welcoming.


I stopped in for a couple of slices. I thought they were very good. Crispy crust, gooey cheese, great taste. I hope they stick around for a long time :)

We got takeout last night. They have a pick up special, two parm or classic pasta dinners for $19.95. Comes with salad and bread. We got one veal parm and one chicken parm. Very generous portions, and agree about the cheese, mentioned above.
