Update on 8/19/19 — Multiple sources tell ARLnow that Pizza Roma is, in fact, still open, but only in the evening. It stopped serving customers at lunchtime without notice.
Earlier: Pizza Roma, an Italian food bistro across from the Ballston Metro station, appears to have closed.
For at least two days in a row, Pizza Roma (4219 N. Fairfax Drive) has been closed around noon, despite having hours posted online saying it should be open. The phone number listed on the window rings, but eventually goes to a dead signal. The menu inside is plastered with “Not Available” sticky notes.
The restaurant averaged 3 out of 5 stars on Yelp, with reviewers praising the quality of the no-frills pizza, but generally agreeing that the restaurant’s aesthetics were pretty sparse.
Pizza Roma had been around for at least a decade, while the location next door had gone from Eat ‘n Run Deli, brgr:shack, Earl’s Sandwiches, and finally the Medina, which closed two months ago. The nearby Pizza Authentica also closed last October.
