The Secret to Romeo's Famous Italian Pasta and Pizza Sauces
Romeo's family restaurants in Victoria have been serving pizza and pasta dishes from authentic traditional recipes since 1974. Many of the signature dishes that you'll find on both our lunch menu and dinner menu come with our distinctive and distinctively delicious sauces, which are made using only the freshest ingredients. Many of our patrons wonder about the secret to our sauce success, so we've decided to share a bit about how Romeo's famous Italian pizza and pasta sauces are made.
How Romeo's Pizza and Pasta Sauces Are Crafted
Great pizza sauce needs to start with a great tomato sauce, and fresh taste always starts with fresh ingredients. At Romeo's, we ensure the quality of our tomato sauce by choosing only the highest-quality, ripest, and sweetest tomatoes. We then add a mix of signature herbs and spices that distinguish our tomato sauce from all others, especially from sauces that are commercially made.
Once all of the ingredients are combined, the sauce is cooked slowly in order to release all of the ingredients' flavours and aromas. In fact, our meat sauce is made over a full eight hours! It is also made in small batches to ensure freshness. When you come to Romeo's, you can be sure that the delicious sauce that accompanies your favourite pizza or pasta dish has not been slowly losing its taste in the refrigerator but was made fresh for your meal.
Our signature pizza and pasta sauces have been used for more than 45 years at Romeo's family restaurants in Victoria. The family recipes used to make them, however, have a much longer history and have been passed down for generations.
