Speedy Romeo: 376 Classon Ave., (718) 230-0061
Two Courses: For some reason, the apps are largely more expensive than the pizzas, but you’ll still squeak in under budget even if you order the most costly items on the menu. Which we generally do, because we roll that way. Go with the tender Grilled Octopus with almond romesco ($16), and The Kind Brother (also $16), a white pie with wild mushrooms, smoked mozzarella, farm egg and sage.
Wine or Dessert: Try the proudly local Affogato ($7, made with Blue Marble ice cream and Kitten espresso); the perfect happy medium between an after-dinner coffee and dessert.
