Server was terrible. Clearly we were talking all night. Just take the order and work around us. No need for all the interruptions.

I must admit, the atmosphere and decor was not what I expected. That being said, we got there early so there was no crowd and noise. Our server was funny and attentive. The food was very unique!! Italian stuffed hot peppers....try them. The pizza....unique yet classic thin crust with the perfect toppings. If I didn't leave on the whole other side of the country, I'd be back for sure.

One of the best places on the LES. The food was wonderful.
Everything we ordered was so delicious. The ribs were cooked to perfection. The wings were just the right amount of spice. The pizza was off the charts. My husband had the hamburger the meat and the way it was cooked was absolutely perfect. The dish of asparagus and ramps was so very good. Kudos to the Chef and the entire kitchen staff.
And the wait staff could not have been more accommodating.

Cool spot! We went with a salad and a pizza to split between two people. BIG salad--more than enough to share. Ordered the white pizza, so delicious. Definitely recommend!

got an early weekday lunch, had the restaurant to ourselves. Lives up to the hype about their pizza. the pastrami pizza was really really good. Staff was friendly and attentive. Fun and eclectic beer selection. offered tastes of some of the more unusual beers. Would definitely return next time we are in NYC. Located on a nice quiet neighborhood street.

Excellent every time. Essentially all wood grilled (including cooked veg, even stuffed long peppers), outstanding steaks, pizzas. And in spite of our intended discipline, we seem always to order the ever-heavenly King Salami pizza. Service quick, efficient, friendly and highly competent. Can sit at counter overlooking kitchen, production, oven and grill which is its own symphony in a small space.

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.

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.

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.

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

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
