Forget 45-minutes-to-bake lasagna. As its name suggests, Go Roma offers Italian food, fast. Hand-stretched, thin-crust artisan pizzas draw in a crowd with regular favorites like margherita and the heavily-layered vegetable pesto pizza, topped with pesto, spinach, tomatoes, red onion, mushrooms, red peppers, mozzarella and goat cheese. Available in half- and full-planks, you'll fork over anywhere from $6 to $13, well below what you'd spend on a rounded pie at, say, Giordano's.
The made-from-scratch goodness extends to other Italian favorites like spaghetti, fetuccini alfredo and lasagna. Simple starters like bruschetta, salads and soups also make it easy to get a bite of Italian food in a hurry. But don't worry that a short visit will leave a long-felt dent on the wallet: Most dishes cost $6-$9, and bottles of wine cost around $8-$12.
Average cost: <$10
