Dine Out : Speedy Romeo

Speedy Romeo Review, Speedy Romeo Pizza, Speedy Romeo New York

The second location of Speedy Romeo was a new addition to the Lower East Side dining scene in the spring of this year. The restaurant's namesake is the prize racehorse of one of the owner's families. Speedy Romeo is known for it's Neapolitan style pizza, made in a hardwood fired Italian pizza oven along with a menu of a handful of restaurant classics. The place has a casual neighborhood vibe with exposed brick walls, bench seating and an open kitchen. We ordered the signature cheeseburger, a half pound Angus beef patty topped with Provel cheese (a blend of cheddar, swiss and provolone) and speedy sauce. The juicy and well cooked burger was complemented by the tasty flavor combination of the cheese and tangy sauce. This place takes a novel approach to pizza with unusual pies like the Paul's Boutique, a tribute to Katz's famous pastrami sandwich in pizza form. We chose The Dangerfield with pork veal meatballs, ricotta, béchamel and garlic chips. The thin crispy crust provided a nice balance to the hearty toppings which there was a good ratio of and it was delicious. A jar of pickled chillies is served alongside the pizza added another dimension of flavor. The service was friendly, laid back and good. There were more menu items that we'd like to return and try at another time.

  8. Rowena, am not much of a pizza person, but dang....that Dangerfield looks so good. I like that it has a thin crust...not a big fan of the regular thick ones. And that burger....aaaaaaaaah. When I see food like this, I'm kinda glad I'm not a vegan:D

    PS I love the Uniqlo stuff for men and tried to convince my husband to pick out some items...alas, I never win these things.:P

  21. Speedy Romeo does sounds like a fantastic addition to the dinning scene. I always like when you share dinning recommendations with us. Good to know that their signature burger was lovely and that pizza looks delicious.

    Yes, I love pizza! I usually eat it with just mozzarela (or some other non fat cheese) and tomatoes...but sometimes I also order a vegeterian version,( I like zucchini on a pizza).
