my favorite pizza – I love L&B's pizza, i would say is the best pizza in brooklyn.
The only bad thing is that during winter it is impossible to eat there i always have to pick up my pizza .... I hope this changes and the owners invest a little bit more on the location, they are very famous now and they could do a little bit more for customers.
pizza is great. the food in the dining area is a large portion but it isnt that tasty. pretty bland. tastes like they use their pizza sauce for everything.
Hot plates are awful at L&B; but best squares.... – I'be been having square slices at L&B for years and their square slices have always been great but their hot food is horrible--no taste and very bland. If you want real good Italian food that's not made by the Arabs at L&B, go to Benny's in Westbury, LI. You won't be disappointed. --Pauly D.
Yumm – I'm a Brooklyn local and just tried this pizza for the first time ever . . I know, WEIRD. I saw it on Man vs. food and was like wow . . thats like 10 minutes away from me. The cheese on the bottom/sauce on top is genious . . I'm about to go get some more, YUMMM.
BEST PIZZA IN NYC!!!! – Every time I go there The Pizza is amazing!! The Sicilian Slice is my favorite.Wish they had more locations. Always crowded with people and to top it off they got spumoni ices!!!!
Can't wait to eat there again!!! great Job Guys!!
Not what is was. – The dough is different now but when it was italian owned it was the best slice you ever had. It still is good but before the mid-90's it was to die for.
Great Place to Grab a Square – This place has been around for years. The only reason to go is to indulge a tasty sicilian square. Their sauce is sweet and tasty. I would recommend eating one and sitting outdoors. They have an inside restaurant as well but it's nothing to brag about. The entrees do not have an authentic Italian taste to them. Instead they are rather oily and greasy. I've gone a few times and have wanted to like this place more but I wouldn't eat inside anymore.
Best Sicilian – Grab a sicilian, fork, knife, and hurry and find a seat. As delicious as their pizza is and as big as their outdoor dining area is... this place is ALWAYS packed. During the spring / summer time, it's nearly impossible to find parking and people are always double parked in the front. If they run out of pizza, you never have to worry about waiting a while for the next pie to come out. The icee spot has many different flavors, makes a delicious dessert.
L&B Spumoni Gardens – I am 48yrs Old & eat out atleast 3-4 Times a week. I've hit most places in NYC & am shocked that anyone could give this place 1 star. THEY MUST BE SPUMONI GARDEN COMPETITORS. I could understand if someone rated the food 3 or 4 stars perhaps because they are accustommed to lets say Olive Garden. But please be serious. The quality of the pizza crust, cheeses & sauce here is delicious and very unique. I have eaten at atleast 250 pizza restaurants & this is one on the very best.
If your in the mood for fresh italian dishes you can't go wrong. My Family had the Chef Table Lite here for $25/ person and We received a huge salad with cheese - Very fresh & well decorated in a large rectangular plate. For Appetizers we were give Jumbo Shrimp 50% fried & 50% Boiled with multiple dipping sauces & a plate of Top notch Baked Clams. Next they brought out a wide homemade paste (About 1" Wide) with fresh greens on tap & Vodka sauce - it was deliciuos. For the main course we were given Veal Marsala topped with eggplant pieces in a sauce to die for and a side dish of scrumptious pan fried Broccolli with garlic. After we revied literally a "Kitchen Sink" of Italian cakes, pasteries & spumoni. Also included in $25 price was all our sodas & coffee. This place is simply awesome & the portions are huge, Service was above average(Mostly Foreign Waiters & Bussers with poor english) & there was not much for decor. We went on a weekday so there was very little wait. Weekends you can expect to wait 45min to 2hr for a table. I've eaten here many other times & just about every dish they prepare rates in the top 5%-10% for NYC. I hate to give this place such a good review because now even more people will come and make my wait more diffilcult but if your looking to go for food freshness, quality, portion size, taste & price. THEN RUN TO SPUMONI GARDENS and don't let the phoney COMPETITOR 1 star REVIEWS through you off. By the way I've never written a review but felt compelled when I saw such bullshit.
THE BEST SICILIAN SLICE IN NEW YORK – Spumoni Gardens has the best Sicilian slice in New York. This is the plain and simple truth.
Some people don't go for Sicilian, and that's fine, but if you order the round pie, don't be surprised when it's mediocre. This is the place to go for pizza the way grandma used to make.
