    The Square is a singular, impressive, culinary achievement. And a kick-ass slice of pie. – Adam Richman, Man v. Food

    Three restaurants in one: the ice cream window, the pizzeria, and the sit-down sicilian place. They vary in quality, but the totality of the food (spumoni and gelati are A+) does it. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Don't be caught ordering a slice. The sicilian squares are the way to go and leave room for spumoni. It's better than ice cream. Enjoy at one of the many outdoor tables.

    Chances are you know this already, but if you're a noob to L&B, the square slices (or pies) are a must! Finish it off with pistachio spumoni. Read more

    Go to L&B on a nice day, sit outside, enjoy two of the absolute best melt in your mouth Sicilian slices in the 5 boroughs, finish it off with a scoop of Spumoni.

    L&B's Sicilian slice reverses the standard tomato-cheese order, placing the mozzarella directly on the dough and the sweet/tart sauce on top, along with a handful of grated Pecorino.

    Sheet pizza slices with a layer of cheese under the sauce, and dough in the crust that's barely cooked. Critics' pick for best foodie adventure: Gravesend, BK.

    It is not that far away! You must go and sit outside and eat a slice of square pizza and a thin paper cup of melting tri-colored spumoni. A summer favorite, for sure.

    Seen on Man v. Food, this place is a favorite well before being on the show. The square is the best square I've ever had, hands down. Save some room for the spumoni.

    My favorite place for pizza is Spumoni Gardens, in Bensonhurst, where my novel is set. The sauce is so full of zest you want to eat the entire pie, says Suzanne Corso, author of Brooklyn Story. Read more

    Avoid their bathrooms at all costs. If you really can't hold it, you might have to get checked for hepatitis afterwards.

    We had a great time. The wait was long but we started with a half pizza outside then moved over to dinner. Baked clams and chicken pram were awesome. Don't miss the Spumoni

    If you're a minority, don't expect good service. No water, waiter is nowhere to be seen, messed up entrees, and food didn't come for 40 mins. (Those who sat down after us got all their food quick).
