Best Italian Ices

Pizza is famous, get the square because the sauce is over the mozzarella. I love the spumoni (Italian ice) which is a combination of chocolate, pistachio and cremalotta. You can bring pints or quarts to go home. The restaurant makes good food too, pasta dishes as well as entrees are true... read more

Friends and I trekked out to Brooklyn last Sunday and ended up sharing a square and a slice. Enjoying the balmy 40 degree temps we sat outside and nibbled around that delicious crispy corner crust on the square. Burned our mouths on the slice. My favorite is the square..the sauce has barely a bit of sweetness with rich tomato-y flavor... More

If you're out by Coney Island - L&B has amazing pizza and it well worth the stop in. Amazing pizza (square is my fav but the round slices are fantastic too) and spumoni. Great Brooklyn experience!

This was by far the best pizza I have tasted in my whole life! Also the Spumoni was soooo yummy. Def a must when in Brooklyn. Wish we lived closer.

Stopped in for a famous Brooklyn slice.. I fell absolutely in love with their pizza!! But that was just the beginning- their dinners are huge portions and always great! Its a perfect spot to enjoy a couples outing but great for families too! Cant wait to go back!

Stopped at this restaurant as part of Slice of Brooklyn Tour . This pizza was great . Never had Scillian pizza before but I loved it. The spumoni ice cream was great also . Visit this place if in Brooklyn .

This place is very simple and small, and the pizza is excellent! The square and the round pies are made a little bit differently and have distinct tastes. I tried both and they were both delicious. I hope to come back next time I'm in New York.

Let's just say that if I was going to have my last meal tonight, I'd request L&B's sicilian pizza and a large spumoni. My grandparents lived nearby on 84th Street, so L&B has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Every day I thank my lucky stars that my dad was awesome enough to... More

We were excited about the pizza, with the sauce on top of he cheese. But the service was just bad. We received four overly salted slices, two edge and two middle. A very long time passed, the waiter was never around. It finally took the busboy clearing our table to check on the appetizer, mozzarella sticks. Like the pizza, the... More

Thank you L&B's for the best pizza ever - unfortunately now no pizza will ever taste as good and as I live 3600 miles from you this is a problem! It was awesome to have a chance to eat as this restaurant as it was one of the reasons why we decided to go to NY on holiday, after seeing... More
