Pizza Oven

Inspired by the street
food of Europe.

Growing up in Milan, Speck owner Gabriele Ruggieri spent many afternoons riding through the Italian countryside with his father, a postman. Together on the mail route, they tasted the best and freshest street food from vendors throughout the region.

It’s those afternoons spent with his father eating food together that inspired Ruggieri to open Speck.

Inspired by European street food vendors, Speck combines fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and a playful atmosphere to introduce visitors to tastes from around the world, bringing people together to establish Italy’s long-held tradition of gathering around food, right here in Cape Girardeau.
