One of a kind!

There is nothing quite like Spumoni Gardens. Best to visit during the summer when you can sit outside, eat a slice (or 3) and end it all with delicious ice cream. Remember to order a square slice and you won't be disappointed!

Tourists come for the square (Sicilian) slice, which often gets food channel type reviews. They even come by tour bus on guided pizza tours. It's a good slice. But you want the thin crust olive oil soaked goey regular slice of pizza, which you fold in half the long way (do NOT eat it with a knife and fork like... More

Th spumoni is as good as you are going to get anywhere and the pizza, which is square is pretty good as well. Probably best to take out as it gets really crowded and service is a bit abrupt in a brooklyn kind of way.. I like to eat the spumoni and pizza in the car.

Usually when one goes for pizza regular is the norm, not so here. Their special way of making the Sicilian is famous and for good reason. Sauce is on top and makes it distinct. LOVE

Sorry but run the other way. Sauce had no taste.. cheese like rubber... An all around bad experience after I heard how great it was.

L&B is a local legend because it produces the best Sicilian pizza you can find. The location is brimming with local character which is best observed in the warmer months. Finish off your pizza with the famous spumoni ice cream. A can't miss place for the pizza lover.

This place is amazing. Both the pizza (square of course!) and the spumoni is WORTH the trip!!!! Definitely try the pistachio spumoni. Delicious!

So this "pizza and ices palace" is an iconic figure in the neighborhood and in the borough. It's withstood the test of time and you'll likely wait to be seated (on a Sat. afternoon in January at 2:30 P.M. we had to wait 35 minutes and all the while I listened to my host ramble on about how this was...
