Maybe part of the fun of Roma Imports is looking for this eatery hidden in the industrial neighborhood west of the Father Kino statue off Kino Parkway. The little Italian restaurant, deli and grocery store is a gem for lunch meetings and great for take-home treats. The homemade sausages in the freezer case are a necessity for any gathering around the grill, but don't forget the baked ziti, lasagna and assorted cannelloni. In fact, why not use Roma to impress your friends and family with your amazing Italian culinary skills. No one needs to know that you didn't spend a weekend putting it all together from the soup to the tiramisu. Maybe that's why Roma is hidden away. Your secret is safe.
