Best Pizza: Niki's Roma
The Victoria Mall food court offers starving shoppers a range of foods from Chinese to sandwiches to pizza.
And Niki's Roma is the newest title holder of the best pizza in the Advocate's Best of the Best competition.
For 21 years, Sam Neziri, owner of Niki's Roma, has served up exactly what his customers like.
"They always tell me that it's the best pizza in the area," he said. "They keep asking me when I am going to open another restaurant."
Neziri said he has no plans to open another restaurant in the Crossroads, but doesn't have any plans on pressing pause on his pizza parlor, either.
"The most popular thing on the menu is the pepperoni pizza," he said. "I like the spinach calzone myself."
But diners will have to brave the temptation to shop if they want to sample the best pizza according to readers; Niki's Roma doesn't deliver.
