Stopped for a few slices as part of a tour. Pizza is thick crust and different in that the mozzarella is placed on the Doug first and then covered with sauce. This was new to me and I enjoyed it, the sauce was more like crushed tomatoes and the flavor was very fresh. Like I said, different but good. We... More

Many people know of L&B for their pizza, but not many ever go into the restaurant to eat a sit down dinner and many should. There are always mixed reviews when it comes to food and restaurants so mainly you need to go and check it out for yourself, but I can give you some tips: L&B is very well... More

Went to this place on a Foodie Tour and was pretty excited since I'm originally from Brooklyn. The pizza has been on the food network and it was average. The Spumoni however was Awesome. Pizza a 3 Spumoni a 5. I wouldn't go out of my way for the pizza but I would stop for Spumoni again.

We've gone there a few times for a quick slice of pizza. This time we stayed for dinner. We ordered a Sicilian pie. In the past I've ordered a regular slice and it was nothing special. We figured that given the long lines each time we've gone, the food had to be better. We started with a salad. Think I... More

great place to just go for a slice of pizza and ices on a nice summer night or for a nice dinner on any day of the week. They have a large outside seating area which is usually full day or night when the weather is nice. Food is inexpensive and good. They have the best square pizza ive ever... More

You go in, you grab a square/sicilian slice, you enjoy & remember this experience for years to come. It is unfair to compare L&B pizza to other NY pizza joints because it simply does it differently. This comes across in every bite you take down to the last! They have a delicious menu should you choose to dine in as... More

I grew up in the neighborhood and have eaten there for years. Anyone will tell you don't go there to eat a round slice. You can get a round slice anywhere, at L & B you go for the squares. The squares are made a little different than norm - mainly it's topped in a different order. It's dough topped... More

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was most of the times it's very very crowded.The pizza is always great,the restaurant itself is an average pizza store restaurant,good food,good prices you can't go wrong.It's not fancy ,it's not romantic,just a good family food place.That said,come to Brooklyn and enjoy some good food.
