Don't bother with the menu- just order a 1/2 sheet of square (feeds 3-4 very hungry people). The pizza is good, but it's all about the experience (outside picnic tables, old school Italian families).
L&B was founded in 1939 by Ludovico Barbati. $2.50 per Round (regular) or delicioso Square (Sicilian) slice. Toppings for pies only. No cc min. Pistachio Spumoni is good. Yes parking. Outdoor seating.
Parking can be a pain, but it's so worth it! Best pizza in New York. I drive over an hour for a slice! Be sure you get some Spumoni on the way out! No matter how full you are, there's always room
Even when I dine in, I never leave without at least two pies (or a "full tray" as it's properly called) to bring home for family and friends. L&B square is the best pizza you'll ever have. Guaranteed.
Brooklyn's premier sicilian slice. The dough consistency is perfect! When discussing toppings, the waiter leans in and tells us in perfect Brooklyn, "ya don't wanna spoil it"
I used to sit inside and eat a grape nut salad.. to die for and then i tried the square.. Yummy! Now I'm obsessed owner gave me a card it said chefs table & I hear its a great experience! Can't wait!
Skip the slices and go for a few of their amazing squares. The parking lot for the establishment is a bit small so don't even bother and find a space on the street nearby,if you're looking for parking
Sprawled out over multiple buildings, Brooklyn's most famous Italian-American dining complex is part ice cream parlor, part pizzeria, with a broader Italian restaurant thrown in for good measure.
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
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.
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.
I'm not a fan. The ingredients are good. It's my wife's favorite sheet. Everyone I know loves their sicilian. It tastes too much like desert, like a layer cake. I'd take Armando's in Canarsie.
their Sicilian pizza is decent, but the food in the dining room is horrendous. place is littered with some of the fattest people I've ever seen who must think the Olive garden is good Italian food.
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
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.
I don't think the pizza nearly lives up to all the hype, but that rainbow spumoni is pretty spectacular. Don't be a noob though. You must only get it in a small paper cup.
I usually go for super-thin crust wherever I go to get pizza, but this place makes the best Sicilian-style pies anywhere and it's the only place I enjoy straying from the norm.
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!
Pizza is good and that linguine with lobster and mix of fish plater for 30 bucks cant go wrong feeds 3 people place is still on point dont care what anyone says♡
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.
Tried square pizza. Dough is really good. A lot of marinara sauce(tastes good) - won't be back. Huge line. And it's to try once.
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.
A Brooklyn staple, when you rate NY pizza you bypass this and DiFara's and then start, this is a whole different echelon of slice
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).
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.
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. ❤❤❤❤
They have the best sicilian slices in New York! And their desserts (icecream and ices) are flavorful. Their signature desserts are the creamcicle and spumoni.
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.
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.
Def the best sicilian slice I've ever had. The regular slice is decent but when eating here your best bet is the sicilian. Your taste buds will thank you later.
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!
Don't go to the fancy restaurant part. Just grab a couple of squares and enjoy the picnic tables out front. Save some room for spumonis, duh!
Of course, you have to go for the square, followed by some spumoni (rainbow, which is chocolate, pistachio, and creamalotta together, I think).
It's all about the middle slices in the square pie. Lots of sauce and cheese. I'd stay away from the round slice. The square is the shining star.
order the chef's table or the owner's going to give you a hug or think about ordering it next time and he'll give you a hug and some random dish free
Instead of waiting in an hour-long line for grumpy service at Di Fara, enjoy Brooklyn’s actual best pizza (maybe) with a square slice here.
Get the square pizza! The sauce is just plain perfect. Crispy thick crust. Also, the service is amazing. A really great neighborhood place.
The sausage & pepper roll is amazing! The spumoni is worth a try too. Also, sitting outdoors is more fun than being inside (also cheaper).
Place is classic Brooklyn - the decor, the staff, the patrons. The pizza is amazing - sweet and saucey. Finish with a Spumoni for desert.
The pizza is great, but the Spumoni is where it's at. Go for the mixed Spumoni, or if its a really hot day Cherry Ice, then a Spumoni!
If you're driving in and their lot is full, do NOT park on 86th near the restaurant. Unless, of course, you want to be boxed in by double-parkers.
The soft dough of the crust is what makes this pizza amazing! Get the squares you wont regret it.
The cheese is under the sauce on their famous Sicilian style pizza. That lets the cheese really melt into the bread. It's perfect.
