Speedy Romeo

Italian in Brooklyn: Fort Greene, Clinton Hill & Bed-Stuy

A modern Italian joint named for the owner's racehorse, Speedy Romeo's biggest draw is its wood-fired, neo-Neapolitan pizzas, which range from the traditional Margherita to the more adventurous Dangerfield (béchamel, pork-veal meatballs, ricotta, basil, and garlic chips). The chicken parma, the cheeseburger and the grilled octopus are also worth a look. If you're feeling lazy, it also offers delivery.
