Moms love wood fired vibes! Celebrate Mother’s Day at Speedy Romeo
Sunday, May 13, 2018
This place was really great, the only dissatisfaction I had was I wish the pizza was left in the oven just a touch more to be a little more golden and I ordered a pizza with anchovies which I wish was cut up more and incorporated. I am really nitpicking, but a very sweet little date night spot.
Pizzas are the thing to get here! Chicken parm was...odd.
The food was great.
Our teens sat a happy distance away from us adults - and all enjoyed our more intimate conversations and food!
We just love the staff and vibe of speedy Romeo. We live close by and it’s perfect for a date night. Friendly and welcoming energy from the staff keeps us coming back. The food is spot on and love the wood oven effect.
Felt a bit weird ordering a steak at what is primarily pizza place but wow am I glad I did. Ordered the prime dry aged ribeye for 2 and it was spectacular. Pretty surprising.. everything else we had was good as well. The chicken wings, octopus, etc
We ate at Speedy Romeo, after participating in Escape the Room, around the corner. It was a birthday treat for our daughter and her friends. The staff at Speedy Romeo were exceptionally welcoming. They were funny and accommodating to a group of teenage girls. They did not rush us through dinner, and you know how gabby teenagers can be. The pizza was excellent as well as the appetizers: the artichokes and the octapus. We had several orders of each. The wine was good, although on the pricey side, but happy hour helped. We recommend it that you try it.
Went for my bday. Great experience. Took a while to bring out the food!
Loved the ambiance, service and food. Everything was delicious, can't wait to return!
Took great care of us and our 2 young kids.
Always delicious. My favorite burger.
The Dangerfield pizza is delicious and the endless mimosas are such a good deal!
Visited Speedy Romeo for my husband’s birthday this past Saturday. I had made a special request when I booked online and Ryan did everything according to plan. The service was great, the food is delicious and the drinks were great as well. The prime rib was to die for!! The four of us shared it plus some yummy pizza! I think the waitress was impressed with our appetites lol.
HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. The ambiance was really dope as well. Can’t wait for our next visit.
I am obsessed with Speedy Romeo, and go there at least once, usually twice, every time I'm in New York. The St. Louie pizza is my favorite thing ever. If I'm ever on death row, that will be my last meal request. I even got one to go to bring back to California with me. The service is always at least good at Speedy Romeo, though this last time our waiter was weirdly hostile and hard to deal with, but I'll assume it was just a fluke, since this is at least the 50th time I've eaten at Speedy Romeo (LES or Clinton Hill) and have never had a *bad* experience.
Busy and fun atmosphere
Pizza was great as always. Slight language barrier with our waiter, we didn’t feel confident that he understood our orders, had a tiny mixup with drinks but other than that it was great!
One of the best Octopus dishes in town. Pizza, burger, and the Strip steak are also outstanding. One of the best restaurants in NYC, hands down.
Great for a date
I requested that this was one of our birthdays and the restaurant did not recognize this.
The service was phenomenal! They couldn’t have been more accommodating for our large party!
My fiancé and i decided to try this place after seeing in on Michael Simons Burgers, Brews & Que and we were not disappointed. We had lunch on Saturday February 17, 2018. The joint was very eclectic with memorabilia and even a box of 8 Track tapes on the wall.
We specifically wanted to try Paul's Boutique, basically a wood fired reuben pizza with an everything bagel crust. It features Katz's pastrami and did not disappoint in the least. It was a delicious as Michael Simon made it out to be and as we imagined. I was a little unsure about the combination of the dijon béchamel and the 1000 island dressing. But it really worked, they didn't overdue the dressing.
We also tried their Bloody Mary's. Although they could have been a little spicier for our tastes we were able to adapt as they provided each table with a container of pickled jalapenos
Absolutely love it at Speedy, we have made it “our spot” can never get enough!
The service was friendly and attentive and the food was both very good and reasonably priced. The marinara pizza was very, very good.
great pizza and service.
will get loud and lively so expect that!
Great atmosphere and good pizza and salads
They ran out of wood fired wings by 9 pm, which was part of the draw to going there in the first place
Service was amazing and the food really really good the best pizza in the world i ask them to show me the technique and they were very kind !
Good food and great service. The cocktails were creative and tasty. I loved the pizza and the salad, both were very good. The waitress was very nice and made just the right amount of conversation. All in all an excellent experience at Speedy Romeo.
Soooooo dark, couldn’t read the menu
Am I getting old? Well, yes, but it was also veeeeeery dimly lit
I am a huge fan of this restaurant- excellent food, drink selection, and service. My one quip: the last two times I've made reservations for the bar, upon arrival I've found the bar to be closed for a private event. While a table is fine, if the bar is no longer an option then please don't make it available for reservations. thanks!
Ripoff. Not good. Have to use 50 characters but that's all you need to know
Great food, great service, definitely coming back!
This was our last dinner in NYC and we really enjoyed it. Fantastic service, food, and ambiance.
Go there for the Kind Brother pizza. Incredibly delicious.
Lighting was too dark!
Had a great time. They honored th reservations. Food was excellent but it is soooo dark in the restaurant it’s next to impossible to read the menu!!
Once again, every single thing we ate was absolutely delicious. Don’t only come for the pizza, although they are all amazing...burger, tartare, salads, chicken parm, desserts are equally as amazing.
Amazing pizza and great wine
Saw this restaurant on Mike Colameco's PBS food show. It did not disappoint after seeing them prepare the pizzas and the steak tartare and other menu items we rushed right to the place. Absolutely love Speedy Romeo. The Katz's Deli Pizza is a must-have. And the steak tartare maybe one of the best we've ever had.
Good food. But if they cannot honor reservations, why do they accept them?? We had a reservation for 8:30, were seated at 9:15. The host was really insistent that we take a table by the door (it was about 25 degrees outside) and that he would “upgrade us” when our table was ready. How about just seat me at my table at the agreed upon time? He was really quite rude and holier than thou.
Great Pizza! The service was outstanding! Definitely worth the walk from the upper east side.
So yummy! The pizza was great, the cheese basically fell off the pizza.
