I have been going to Spumoni Gardens for almost 30 years.
Their pizza is my benchmark world wide.
Very few compare.
Although most would recommend their Sicilian square cut pizza, I prefer their thin crust.
The thin crust is crisp, perfect tomato sauce, and just the right amount of cheese.
Don't forget to fold the slice (takes 3 fingers) so the oil doesn't drip on you!
Standing on line is tradition and worth the wait for a freshly baked (right out of the oven) slice.
The atmosphere is excellent NY (Coney Island) pizza take out, so "fuggetabout" any overwhelming niceties - just enjoy the fabulous pizza.

Heard about this place for many years and finally visited this past weekend. Went for pizza, but we were so hungry we sat inside and had dinner. The restaurant was totally packed and the service was very slow. But we came for the food and not the service. I had eggplant parmigiana whic I use to personally rate Italian restaurants. It came with a tiny potato croquette and some broccoli rabb, nothing to write home about. The eggplant was good, probably an 8. However, the spumoni ice cream put a great end to the meal. So good, we brough some home. The place was good enough to make me want to return. However, for excellent Italian food in NYC, nothing beats Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, where the eggplant parmigiana is close to a 10. Sorry I didn't try their much acclaimed pizza, but no room for it. The ambiance and the spumoni means that I shall return.

Less well known than its neighbors Di Fara's and Grimaldi's, and less hip than Paulie Gee's, Spumoni Gardens, an outdoor Brooklyn experience, is for me, factoring in everything, the best of the lot. There's a line, there's always a line, but it moves swiftly just as long as you stick with the basic plain square...nothing fancy here. You can get a huge salad in the "to go" area of the indoor dining room...a place where you can get spumoni if you leave room for dessert.

This place has great square pizza. The service is ok at best. They could be more friendly, smile and say thank you. Maybe it's a Brooklyn thing. The outside tables need a good steam cleaning. But just on the pizza, a must try.
