At Pizzeria Romana, we offer authentic Roman style pizzas in convenient locations all across Rhode Island. We serve both dine-in and take-out customers at our Lincoln and Wakefield locations as well as at our newest location in Johnston.

Pizzeria Romana was founded by award winning Italian chef and restaurateur Luciano Canova, who saw a need for an authentic Italian Pizzeria in the area. Most of Chef Luciano’s pizza recipes have been handed down through his family and are prepared with locally grown produce as well as home made dough and pizza sauce. If that’s not enough, our pizzas and calzones are cooked in a specialty pizza oven imported from Italy. Luciano’s legendary approach to service, is to make every customer feel right at home. Buon Appetito!




Chef Luciano Canova was born in 1949, on a small farm just outside of Rome, Italy. Raised by both his parents and grandparents, food has always been the staple that kept his family together. His passion for food is the driving force behind his restaurants today. After Graduating from the Culinary Institute of Italy, Luciano worked all around the world including Switzerland, Germany and now the United States! His award winning preparations and legendary approach to customer service have allowed Chef Luciano to grow a family of Italian restaurants in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts, offering his authentic, down-to-earth approach to fine Italian cuisine to guests across the region.
