Great pizza. They have both traditional slice called round and Sicilian called square. The square pizza is thick. Definitely a hidden gem.

World known for Sicilian pizza, the food is great. If you want a new experience with Italian food try the dining room. All the dishes are amazing.

I came here last friday with my partner for my birthday. We were staying in Williamsburg so was a bit of a trek but my god was it worth it! I am from the uk, so had only read about this place, but everything I...read was positive. The prawns were the best i've ever had. They were absolutely massive and full of flavour! The value for money and meal size was unreal. Special shout out to Danny for the service and for the home made ice cream. We will be back.More

The line is long but moves fast, read the signs to make sure your in the right one for slices or whole pies. Be ready to order! Staff and people behind you are ready to go at this high volume, fast paced establishment. On to...the pizza, two choices here the square Sicilian style, or typical New York style. We chose......BOTH. Why wouldn't you. The Typical New York slice was good. Perfect ratio of sauce to cheese to dough. Crunchy, delicious crust the likes of which we cannot find in my native Miami. The Sicilian was great, a much different take on pizza and the house specialty. Usually I'm all about the cheese, in this pizza it's used sparingly and placed on the thick dough, then topped with sauce. It's a thick and hearty pizza dominated mostly by the dough. But the buttery crust is phenomenal. We also had the rainbow Spumoni, an ice cream like dessert consisting of pistachio, chocolate and vanilla. This dessert is less creamy and more on the icy side which distinguishes itself from typical ice cream. The service was fast and efficient, not much time to chit chat at the take out window. The bathrooms were my only true complaint, if tried to hold it if I were there again.More

We went there with my son and his girlfriend. The portions are generous, and delicious. The service was good, and they gave us complementary spumoni. They have a parking lot which is a good thing in Brooklyn.

Came with 4 family members who live in Brooklyn. On a Saturday night, the restaurant was jammed and vibrant. Parking was crazy with people randomly double parked just to pick upIt was relatively warm so we were able to easily get a table and sit...outside. The pizza was ready in minutes and we all enjoyed it. Frankly, I prefer thin crust but this was novel for me. The ice cream was wonderful. Worth the visit for the vibe!!More

Best pizza anywhere. The sheet of Sicilian pizza is amazing…sauce on top of the cheese, the way it should be. The rice balls are perfection and the spumoni is quite possibly the best thing you’ll taste in your life. Great neighborhood crowd and the waitstaff...obviously enjoy working there. No trip to NY is complete without a trip to L&B. Without a doubt, my #1 NY restaurant. Parking is sometimes tight but with a little patience a spot usually opens up in the small parking area. Easy access from subway lines make it just as easy to take the subway and walk a few blocks. Take the N (yellow line) subway to 86th Street and it’s a 5 minute walk from there. It’s approx. 45 minutes from Herald Square/Midtown area.More

Update: came here on 9/3/21 with my friend as we both enjoyed another fabulous meal at L & B Spumoni Gardens, our server Matt was absolutely wonderful! We started with our appetizer of Fried Calamari and two slices of their famous tomato pie, and our...entrees of veal marsala for me and veal Parmesan for my friend! The best ever! Then I got a slice of their Italian cheesecake, delicious! The cappuccino was very good, by Lavazza! My favorite Italian restaurant whenever I'm in town! Love all the staff!More

My friend and I visited this establishment on 7/2/21. It was my first time here and I was in for a real treat. We welcomed by our server John who was amazing! We started off with our drinks, bread , and our starters, I had...a glass of Chianti which was a great glass, we both had the fried calamari, prepared to perfection, we had the casear salad which tasted a little bitter to out palates, then each of us got a slice of the famous sicilian pie, which was absolutely out of this world delicious. Then our entrees came, my buddy had the rigatoni bolognese and I had the spaghetti carbonara, which was prepared differently, we both enjoyed our dishes. I was told to end my evening with a cup of their spumoni, which was creamy deliciousness, I have a little critique about the spumoni, I have had spumoni which consists of chocolate, vanilla, cherry, and pistachio ice creams together. Other than that everything was spectacular! Definitely check out L & B Spumoni Gardens, It's Highly Recommended! Tell em Charlie sent ya!More

loved this pizza! had the "grandma" style, Sicilian with the cheese under the sauce. the texture of the crust was a bit chewy, which I loved! the sauce was also a bit sweet but I loved that too! the cheese was not the star of...the show, you could barely tell it was there but that's because it was all balanced so well. I could have stood more cheese but it was really perfect the way it was. I loved this pizza! people like to mention di Fara's whenever talking about Brooklyn pizza so I will say I love their pizza too but it is completely different from Spumoni Gardens. I love them both!!! try this place for a classic experience - it's super good.More

I've been a loyal customer since 1965 and can no longer be. Ordered Chicken Fettuccine in Alfredo sauce with an order of sausage parmesan with onions & peppers. When I received the food my fettuccine was not al dente, (raw not done). My wife's sausage...was over cook, no onions or peppers very little cheese, no sauce as well . When I returned with the food for replacement , again IT WAS ALL WRONG. NO CHICKEN IN THE PASTA EVEN WHEN THE ORDER WAS FOR CHICKEN ALFREDO!!!!!! made a call to the Manager who told my wife I was suppose to mention chicken?, he was not Italian. When the manager spoke to the person who took the order he had to speak to him in Spanish. The manager proceeded to put the blame on us, how about that! Not to say that only Italian people can cook pasta but some body needs to know how to cook Italian food, if your place is saying that it's Italian. If not then the people in the place should understand how to cook pasta or sausages because you never know when your preparing a meal for a CHEF!! This was the third time in the past year that a meal from L & B was not cooked correctly. BETTER BACK IN THE DAY WHEN ITALIAN PEOPLE WORKED IN THE KITCHEN OR PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT AND HOW TO COOK FOOD! SORRY GUYS YOU JUST LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER.More

L&B is known for their square Sicilian style pizza, unusual in that they place the ample amount of mozzarella cheese under the sauce, rather than on top. It is delicious. They also feature homemade ices, their specialty being spumoni, a combination of chocolate, pistachio and...almond. They have always had lots of outdoor seating and also have a full Italian restaurant on the premises with excellent food. A Brooklyn landmark!More

I never thought a simple cheese Sicilian could make me so happy. There hasn't been a single person I've brought here that hasn't craved a slice after, even the meat-eaters love a good cheese slice from here. My bestfriend and I would come and order...a full tray. We can only handle two slices each but we know we have to take the rest home for another day. We put them in freezer bags and warm them up whenever we want a slice. STILL AMAZING!!!More

This place isn't easy to get to, and in my opinion, you can find better pizza in more easily accessible areas of New York City. Personally, I feel if you're going to go off the beaten path for pizza, Di Fara is the superior choice....Having said that, this pizza has a solid crust, nice crisp with a little char on the bottom. It’s fluffy and not overly doughy like other Sicilian style slices, but could use a little more flavor overall.More
