The Lower East Side outpost of this Clinton Hill favorite slings wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas that are in a league of their own. Speedy Romeo is one of the only places in the city that serves St. Louis-style pizza topped with white Provel cheese. The rest of the pies are made with fresh-pulled mozzarella, ricotta, fontina, and other Italian cheeses, then topped with a myriad of toppings, from clams and pancetta to meatballs and bechamel sauce. The Clinton St restaurant is homey and intimate, complete with exposed brick walls, bench-backed booths, and an open kitchen.
