    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.

    Best Sicilian pizza EVER!

    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.

    Thick crusts slathered with tomato sauce. The hearty slices are in squares and we can assure you one square is never enough!

    Sicilian pizza at L&B is an essential NYC rite of passage.

    A must visit for Pizza lovers- Back in the day the slices were bigger-and somehow better-but STILL the BEST Sicilian (square) Pizza in the US, hands down!

    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

    Order the square. Eat it slowly to appreciate the flavor of their excellent sauce.

    Billy H. · December 11, 2009

    Go to Spumoni Gardens and eat a whole half tray Sicilian pie just because it's that amazing.

    You HAVE to get Sicilian here.. that's what they're known for! And AMAZING spumoni! (I get mine w/ just chocolate and pistachio - no vanilla b/c its too sweet). BEST PIZZA EVERRR!

    There's nothing like eating Sicilian square outside followed by a Spumoni Ice + tons of eye candy!

    They currently have pumpkin icecream if you finish all your pizza.

    Yes, it may be overrated but still the best!!! Some of us have 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70 years of memories coming here. The pizza is very good and the ambiance is one of a kind. It's addictive. ❤❤❤❤

  • Noah @Noah_Xifr X.

    Easily the best Sicilian slice I've had in a long time. But still get the 1&1, Round regular & square Sicilian. Finish w the namesake Spumoni icees. Yum & done.

    It's summer time, which means time for you to enjoy the weather while you grub on pizza, pasta and refreshing ice cream at L&B's outdoor seating area.

    Awesome Sicilian pizza. Spumoni is homemade.

    Probably the best value around for a fantastic slice and a beer. A go-to place for a cheap, fun outing in Bensonhurst.

    Family owned for 70 years! Well worth the drive or the train ride out. The sicilian squares are the way to go. Huge squares! Sit out side & order at their counter - every laid back and a perfect summe

    3FLOZ · July 15, 2011
  • Tiffany L.

    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).

    Tiffany L. · May 29, 2011

    The sicilian slice is amazing... Cops frequent here so that's a plus :)

    Good pizza but not as good as all the hype. The Sicilian slices are soft with the sauce on top of the cheese, which seems to be part of the draw. Regular slices are gooey in a good way.

  • B N.

    Had my first taste of spumoni here on a hot day in summer '10, fainted from deliciousness but was awakened by the thick steam from a Sicilian pie. May be my fav square slice EVER as in pi pie.
