Love your slab pizza! Best I've tasted since visiting Italy. I have to come by and try something from your steam table one day this summer. Keep up the great work and food. Ciao :)

Hi Phil, I just wanted to send a HUGE thank you for the food we had at our party last night. Everything was delicious and the presentation of the meat, cheese and dessert trays was lovely. Thank you again. For never having ordered from you before, I was incredibly pleased with your service and food. And also thanks for the fresh breads, what a treat!

I will definitely order again at our next event!!

~ Annette

Hey Annette,
Thanks for the kind words! I will pass that along to everyone here. It's great to get feedback, especially positive. We are here for you anytime - Phil

Hi Phil,

I grew up in Hamilton and loved to eat Roma pizza at XMAS. I now live in Texas and my daughter and I are craving your awesome slab pizza.

Have you ever had requests to ship your slab pizza via FedX or UPS to the U.S.? Is that a possibility? I really don't care what the shipping costs would be as along as I could get a couple of those delicious slab pizza that would mean more to my daughter. Let me know. Thanks

~ Bill Fleming

Thanks so much for the kind words. Yours is not the first request for air shipment believe it or not. Unfortunately we are unable to ship it as keeping the sauce from moving around is unavoidable. However if you are ever back home please stop in to say hello and enjoy some with our compliments. Words like yours go a long way and are much appreciated. - Phil

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the response, I can't tell you how much we miss your slab pizza. Oddly enough, I live 20 miles North of Dallas near Plano and I haven't seen any product like it here in Texas which I find strange, maybe a good business opportunity.

As it turns out my sister-in-law is coming here for XMAS and is going to buy a Roma slab pizza, cut it up and vacuum pack it and bring it in her suitcase.

`~ Regards and Best Wishes for XMAS, Bill

Below is an email I recently received from a woman in BC.

Hi there! I grew up in Hamilton and often enjoyed your delicious pizza, especially at Christmas when my grandmother would go to your bakery and pick up several of your pizza’s for all of the grand kids (and adults) to enjoy. 

There is truly nothing like it!!!!  Every time I travel back to Ontario, my family/friends are always sure to have your pizza ready for me to enjoy.  I have yet to find anything that is quite as delicious and was wondering if you are able to ship pizza this way… we would happily pay whatever it takes!  Just going on your website made me crave it!!!

~Sincerely, Jennifer

Believe it or not, her's wasn't the first request we have had to ship our pizza. Unfortunately due to the delicate nature of the product it has proved not possible. But comment like these are very gratifying indeed. - Phil

To Phil,

My sister's boy friend just moved from Stoney Creek up here to Oshawa (Just East of Toronto) and he brought a Roma Slab Pizza..... it was the best thing I've ever tasted. Unfortunately there are no Fortinos east of Toronto so I hope that you will soon find a way to expand to this area. Thanks for making awesome pizza though!!

~ Peter, Whitby, Ontario

To Phil,

Thank you Philip. your pizza is very delicious and i just wanted to make sure there were no additives as the box says. I have dairy and pork allergies and wanted to make sure there was no cheese. I have never tasted such delicious pizza.

~Tess

Hi Tess,

There is no dairy or pork in our slab pizzas. We have more than a few inquiries regarding dairy allergies but because we do not put on cheese, I am pleased to say that is not a problem. Of course there may be pork on our pepperoni pizzas. Thanks and if you are ever in the store ask for me or Rose. We are usually around or hiding in the back. Best Regards, Phil

Hi Phil, Thanks for donating some food for my volunteers. Much appreciated!! If you have the jpeg logo, I will add it to my site with a link to your site.  I will ensure that I brag about your buns. haaa

Thank you! We were delighted and impressed with the cheese, fruit and dessert platters you delivered to the Warplane Heritage Museum! We presented the platters to our guests at an 11pm coffee, during our Daughter\'s wedding. You helped make our event perfect. Thanks again!>

Below is a review from www.qype.co.uk

Roma Bakery has been in operation in the Hamilton area for over 60 years and everyone knows of it if you have grown up in our working class town.

As a child I have become infatuated with their plain pizza, which has become the taste of home. I have been away from home for years, and it is the only thing I crave from home for some reason. Other travelers I have met miss their Vegemite or Ghost Pops, but for me, it's their pizza.

I am a person who can eat an obscene amount of food, at the same rate of a person suffering from obesity, and their pizza is always the one thing that can fill my void when it comes to hunger.

The pizza is so simple, yet so incredible. Some say its not even pizza, which I can understand, but it is. The pizza everyone always eats in our city and the surrounding areas is their plain pizza, which is simply bread with sauce on it. You can get pizza with cheese and meat on it, but for some reason, the plain choice is the most popular for the hungry citizens. The pizza is so popular you can purchase it fresh at every major supermarket at home, and every school child in Hamilton has had a slice of it as their special lunch meal.

If you are ever in Hamilton or the surrounding area, do yourself a favour and please purchase yourself some of this pizza which dances in your mouth because of their incredible flavours and fresh ingredients. I would consider this pizza as the city's unofficial meal.

In 1952, when horse-drawn delivery carts were still a familiar sight on the streets of Hamilton, Philip DiFilippo, with wife Pauline, opened a small bakery and bread delivery service in the city's north end.

Roma Bakery flourished as customers grew to appreciate the value and quality of the delicious fresh bread and buns it produced daily.

Today, quality, value and tradition live on at Roma Bakery, home of the famous slab pizza and one the busiest bakeries in the Hamilton and Stoney Creek area.

Over the years, Roma has expanded in response to the needs of its loyal and growing customer base. Carrying on their father's tradition of quality, value and service, owners, Philip, Adam, and Joseph DiFilippo have gradually added pastries, a delicatessen and recently a hot food table to Roma's repertoire.

Visit Roma Bakery soon and treat yourself to authentic Italian breads, pastries, a slice of famously delicious pizza, exquisite deli meat and cheeses, a hearty meal, and so much more.... and there's plenty of free parking space.
