"The acquisition of Go Roma is an exciting opportunity with significant potential," said DiNella. "We believe Go Roma is uniquely positioned as one of the few Italian restaurant groups in the flourishing fast casual arena.  Our partners are Chicago natives who believe strongly in the opportunities Go Roma presents and look forward to the development of this distinctive brand."

David Wolfgram and other Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises veterans launched Go Roma in 2004.  They shared a passion for great Italian food served in a quick, casual setting to meet the needs of time-pressed, health-conscious diners. Offering a humble menu of iconic Italian dishes made from scratch with simple ingredients, it's no surprise that Go Roma continues to thrive.

"The future is exciting for this terrific brand," said Go Roma founder David Wolfgram. "As Go Roma prepares for a new round of growth under the leadership of Ronald DiNella and Roma Restaurants, the brand is poised to capture the untapped fast casual Italian segment."
