During the recent storm and power outage, we headed out shopping in the Princeton area. They didn't lose power.

We went to Romeo's in nearby Plainsboro. There were four of us. We opened a bottle of Rioja, since it's a byob restaurant. We started with the calamari, which comes with a great red sauce on the side.

This was followed by house salads, included in the entree price. My wife and I had the puttanesca, which is superb. It's also Katie, but I finished it! Half of my wife's order came back home with us. Our friends tried the neat ravioli and the eggplant Parmesan . The eggplant dish was huge! She could barely finish half.

Are there negatives? The place has a pizzeria side and a restaurant side. We like sitting on the restaurant side. They had a private party, which took up almost the entire space, but there was a side room, which is where we were seated.

Service wasn't as fast as usual, because they need to attend to the party and our side room was a little isolated. There were small problems.

Romeo's is reasonably priced and the good is great. It's a BYO restaurant too!

I love a great soup in the winter for lunch. I have been Romeo's for their delicious pizza and meals, but I really love their daily soup! It rich and hearty, and full of meat and vegetables! Be sure to go hungry, and you won't leave that way!!

Ordered a panini sandwich for a working business lunch and it went right into the trash, it looked awful. I do not care for their pizza, thicker crust than I like. I have never tried any of the pasta dishes and have only been here for lunch, but i don't care for their salads either so I can't say I will ever eat here again.

I grew up on Aljon's pizza out of Allentown, so when I come to NJ I sneak over to Romeo's and get myself a large sausage pizza. It's conveniently located next to the liquor store so I can go over and get a 6 pack while the pizza is cooking! I've had 4 pizzas in the last four months and every one of them has been great. I really need to get a Sicilian pizza at some point but I am always happy to get my pizza (BTW, reheats well too later in the week after a busy day at the office!)

While running around shopping we returned to Romeo’s for lunch. As usual, the Puttanesca was excellent. The tomatoes they use must have a vibrant red color. The dish is full of flavor. As I recall, the pasta dishes with rolls and either soup or salad is about $ 10.95. The bread rolls are made from pizza dough, giving them a unique texture. Romeo’s is a BYOB, which is also a plus.

OK, so there isn’t any atmosphere. The quality of the Puttanesca more than makes up for this shortcoming.
