This place is a thing of the past, just like Nathans was and all the wonderful places that Brooklyn USED TO BE FAMOUS FOR> NOW ITS ALL JUST A MEMORY.
The food here is now horrific. Even the spumoni, their namesake is G-d awful Its loaded with artificial chemicals and colorings. The pizza isnt good anymore either and the place is now very DIRTY

I would have to disagree with some of these reviews. First of all, real Sicilian pizza does not contain lots of cheese. Everything is made fresh, including their signature sauce. Having said that L&B is the best tasting pizza in town. If you want something truly different and unique go to L&B but if you want something ordinary go to Domino's.

This is the best pizza on the planet period. I used to live in the neighborhood, so i could get it whenever I wanted, now that I live in the East Village, I will make excuses to go to Brooklyn just so I can stop off there. Let's put it this way - I hate baseball - I think it's the most incredibly boring sport ever created, but I will gladly go to a Cyclones game if I know that we will get off of the train either before or after the game to get L&B's.

I'VE BEEN GOING THERE SINCE I'M A KID. NOT ONLY ARE THEIR SQUARES THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD, BUT THEIR HOMEMADE ICES ARE THE BEST. YOU CAN'T GO THERE WITHOUT HAVING THE SPUMONI ALONG WITH A SQUARE. AND IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A GREAT FAMILY RESTAURANT, THEY HAVE A FANTASTIC MENU WITH GREAT PRICES. I DON'T EVEN ORDER OFF THE MENU ANY MORE. I'LL JUST ASK THEM TO COOK FOR ME AND I KNOW WHATEVER DISHES THEY BRING OUT ARE GOING TO BE GREAT. THE PORTIONS ARE SO HUGE, YOU'LL ALWAYS WALK OUT WITH ENOUGH LEFTOVERS TO LAST THE WEEK.....

Cons: CROWDED, PARKING IS TOUGH

This family has been ripping people off for 65 years! There should be a big sign stating "if anyone expected to get any visible mozerella cheese on their Sicilian pizza, they went to the wrong place!" This "family" charges $35 for a box of dough and sauce! This place doesn't put any significant amount of mozzerella cheese on their Sicilian pizza and have been getting away with it for 65 years! Yes, you have the right to make your pizza any way you wish, but you should state there will be no visible mozzerella cheese! In all the reviews I've read about your place, NONE stated that the amount of mozzerella cheese used is so infinitesimal, that it becomes invisible by getting "absorbed into the dough." Now I wonder whether your Rainbow Spumoni is actually made with real Pistaccio nuts or fake imitations such as peanuts.
No wonder why so many FAT people eat at Spumoni Gardens... they're eating pizza without cheese to lose weight. Your place is a dieter's delight! Also no wonder why it's difficult to eat only one slice: There's no SUBSTANCE to the damn stuff!
Won't be going back, and neither will the pizza loving friends of Tony.
"If I wanted a Foccaccia, I wouldn't have ordered a Pizza!" Avoid the Sicilian IF you expect any cheese on it. The dough and sauce are tasty. Napolitan Pizza has expected amount of cheese.

I loved L&B's for a while. I've had pizza there several times, and they make it great. That's what made me give this AT MOST a 2 out of 10. The horrible downside is that they do not, and I repeat, they DO NOT deliver to "the projects." I live in the Marlboro Houses, just about 3 blocks away from the Spumoni Garden, but they refuse to deliver for me. I mean, sure I can get up off my butt and get out there to pick up the order myself, but not during a horrible day when it rains or snows. Also, I wouldn't go out to pick it up if I had visitors over at my place. Seriously, even though they have fast service for the majority, I think they can improve their service a little bit more by delivering to everyone, no matter where they live.

I have gone to Spumoni Gardens since the mid 1980's so I know their place well. Year after year they have had the best "square" (sicilian) pizza and the fastest service of all the places I've been. I grew up in Brooklyn and went to Spumoni Gardens nearly every Saturday night before going out for several years. After that I went to Spumoni Gardens every time I was in the neighborhood, whether I was hungry or not because I am always in the mood for the best pizza in all of NYC! The sauce on the pizza is amazing, like nothing else and they are generous with it! Make sure you get plenty of napkins because you'll need them! They always use the perfect amount of cheeze and it's obviouse they use high quality products to make their pizza. Make sure you get at least 2 slices because one will never be enough of that great combination of ingredients! Before you leave get an ice too! They are just as great as the pizza! It's no wonder Spumponi Gardens has been around for so many years!

Pros: Perfect combination of ingredients, excellent flavor, and extremely fast service!

Cons: I live too far from Spumoni Gardens now!!!

The best Square ever. I grew up across the street and now my 20 year old son makes sure I bring home pizza from L&B anytime I am in brooklyn. The spamoni is the best with the pistacio being the best of the best!
There is no better place to enjoy a slice outside and watch Brooklyn life go by.

No better square pizza anywhere. The spamoni is even better than the pizza. Been going there for 45 years and now I take my family. Best place to eat a slice outside while watching Brooklyn life go by. The wise guy wanna be-s are still there eating a slice right next to the cops and firefighters who always seem to be double parked in front. The Brooklyn hotties who go there are just as hot as when I was a kid and the pizza is just as good.

Pros: Best pizza and ices anywhere great outdoors atmosphere

Cons: always a line to get a slice. Time to buy new napkin holders

I enjoy L & B's pizza. The round pizza is just OK but the square is excellent. Cheese on the bottom, sauce on top - not too thick or doughy. You eat the pizza outside on a warm summer evening. You can even bring your dog! The food in the restaurant is usually quite good. although the ambiance is just so-so (think plastic table cloths).

There is one important thing to know about this place. It has the best sicilian pizza in new york city, and therefore in the world. Anyone who disagrees clearly does not know what good pizza is.

I live a few blocks away from L&B, and there are always a bunch of people, especially teenagers hanging around. Finally, my husband and I decided that we have to go eat there. What a disappointment! The pizza was soggy and flavorless, and the pasta sauce tasted worse than the jarred ones. To add insult to injury, the service was not nasty, just very cold. Sort of like they're doing you a favor that they're allowing you to eat there. There are several really good Italian pizza places close by. Skip L&B and head over to one of the others.

Took our upstate college softball team here for eats last spring after playing at St. Francis. Nothing in our area to compare it to. The sicilian slices and spumoni were the best I've had in 50 years of eating. Also loved the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood. I've been back twice since spring and plan on making a point of visiting whenever I'm in the city.

Been going there for a while. Pizza is one of the best around. When friends from abroad come for the real authentic italian american pizza, I take them here.Only suggestion is that they have a better way to order and pick up. Can get very busy in the summer and warmer months with long lines. Come with a empty stomach cause you will fill it!

my dad grew up right across the street and raved about the spumoni and silician slices here my entire life. finally i'm 23 and he took me, and even after all his hype (he's a major foodie and has impeccable taste) it exceeded my expectations. no other silician slice compares, nothing else even deserves to be called silician in contrast - delicious sauce, light and airy bread, perfect crust. man oh man. and the pistachio spumoni is incredibly good, as far as i'm concerned this is the only place worth even trying spumoni. everywhere else is just ice cream with stuff in it.

This is by far the best pizza that you have ever eaten. You can go to all these gormet places and eat expensive pizza this is the best cheese, sauce, bread its a done deal. If you like Brick Oven go to Grimaldi's but you want pizza go hear and have a spumoni that is the best period! Unless you are going to Italy you can not compete. Also the food is enormous so do not order too much unless you want leftovers for a week! Also, all these other pizza places do they have a fire truck, police cars and ambulance double and triple parked? That right there you should go do not walk RUN!!! Its great! Brooklyn's best kept secret!

I went with a friend from Brooklyn. Until then I thought I'd had the best pizza NYC had to offer - John's, Arturo's, Lombardi's, et al. All good. But when I bit into the Sicilian slice at L & B I saw God. Crisp crust, delicious sauce, the right amount of cheese. Don't get me wrong the Neopolitan slice was also very, very good. But nothing tops the "square slice!" I only had two slices because I wanted room for the spumoni. It's rare to find homemade spumoni. Most people settle for the tri-flavored ice cream in the supermarket. The other food they serve is also very good, but the pizza keeps calling me back!

I've been making trips to L&B since I was 4, and I am now 54. This pizza is the BEST anywhere for "grandma" slices! It's tomatoey with a fresh, thin slice of mozzarella and a dusting of parmesan. We live in NJ now, and whenever we are in Brooklyn to visit folks we detour to L&B and bring home a half a pie (12 slices) to freeze. With other pizza I eat one slice, but with this amazing pizza, I eat 3 and have to force myself to stop (and I am 110 lbs!). You've GOT to try it! Sit outside at the picnic tables and have yourself a treat.

Grew up near L&B as a kid. Been going there for 55+ years. The round pizza doesn't taste as good as I recall, it's still wonderful, but the Sicilian is to die for. You have to try their home made spumoni; unbelieveable. i live in Arizona & go back to Bklyn 3x's a year. L&B is always a must to stop at. There's double pkg on the street if the small lot is full. Don't worry, the cops do it too. After all, this is Bklyn at its best.

If the best pizza is in Brooklyn and this definitely the best pizza in Brooklyn, then this is the best pizza in the whole world! Their square pizza is to die for. The sauce is delicious and what they do is they put the sauce and spices on top of the cheese on perfectly oven baked bread which is burnt to a perfect crisp. My friends and I go to this place quite often because we love it so much. Mmmm... it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The only thing about this place is that they don't deliver...but then again that would be impossible because they wouldn't be able to hire enough delivery guys because their phone would be ringing off the hook! Everyone should definitely give this place a try you won't regret it.

L & B Pizza is truly a treat!!! We live all the way in Southern N.J. My husband commutes to N.Y. When he's in Brooklyn, the kids and I ask him to pick it up and bring it home for us. We anticipate dinner time all day until it gets here. It's so unbelieveable. The taste is so consistent for years!! Everyone that tries it will agree.

Spumoni Gardens pizza is one of the best pizza I have had in Brooklyn. When I lived in the area, my family had this pizza every Friday. Either we go and eat the pizza there in there open air seating area or we would have it delivered. I know live out of state down south, but every time I return to Brooklyn, Spumoni Gardens is definitely one of my stops. You would definitely agree that is the best pizza around!

This place is great--I used to go as a kid with a friend's family and I started going back several years ago. Good pizza, awesome spumoni, and great dinner prices in the restaurant area. Portions are huge and enough to eat for two more days!! Even the salads are enormous! Try the Caesar. I always bring non native Brooklynites and I have never heard a complaint--good bang for the buck! Be prepared to wait as it gets packed but feel free to enjoy the view of the cute cops and firemen that show up constantly! Always a plus!

L&B pizza is among the best in the world. It is very easy to scarf down 4 slices without even batting an eyelash. My parents used to live across the street from the restaurant in the Marlboro Projects and whenever we leave Long Island and cross over through Brooklyn we have to grab a dozen slices because they are just that good. The food at the restaurant is great too. I have never eaten something that I didnt like.

If you have never tried L&B's Sicilian pizza you have no idea what you are missing. Whether you are a native New Yorker, a transplanted NYr, or a tourist you must make your way to L&B and try their Sicilian pizza. It will literally make you feel like you have died and gone to heaven. Their restaurant is also amazing. The Italian dishes they prepare are magnificent! My ultimate favorite is chicken parmigiana with spaghetti. And their house wines are excellent. Did I mention that their ice cream will leave you begging for more? If you live in Brooklyn or are close by L&B Spumoni Gardens is a must come on you owe it to your taste buds.

My parents moved my 4 sisters & I to Brooklyn in 1953, I was 16. L&B was the 1st place we went to eat & I've been there at least 1 or 2X's a month until I moved my family to Monroe, NY in 1981. Summer was the best, you always met ur friends there. The thing i really missed was the clam bar. Still whenever I visit my nephew Carmine,
iI stop by L&B's & bring home a whole sheet of Sisilian pizza & frozen Spumoni.

I moved to Jersey from gravesend BKLYN and I have been going here for pizza and spumoni ever since I ate solid foods! I rave about this place to everyone when they talk about "good pizza" (theres no such thing in jersey). The pizza can't be beaten and the spumoni is the best I've ever had. I give this place an A+++.

Pros: Amazing Pizza, Amazing Spumoni

Cons: , AWFUL TO PARK, AWFUL TO PARK

For 39 years the quality of the pizza pies, both Neapolitan and Sicilian styles, has been the very best in the City of New York! The Italian food is great and plentiful too. In the summer the tables outside are usually full with happy eaters.

When I was a kid, in summer, coming back home, we would pick up L&B Spumoni Gardens' sicilian pizza, Lemon ice and pistacchio spumoni. Go to grandma &grandpa's in Bensonhurst. The quality of the "square" pizza... unrivalled; the taste... exquisite! The ices and the spumoni were perfect desserts to the pizza. The sauce on the pizza was the best; it was thick and it QUENCHED your craving. Years later, when I go, the same sounds; the same smells and the same "feel" to the place--and it is one that I associate with good family love and happy times. But most of all, the tastes are still the best! If you want to capture the essence of Brooklyn Sicilian-American popular culture, the L&B Spumoni Gardens is the place to be.

Never will you taste sicilian Pizza and Spumoni like L&Bs. Everyone says that their round slice is no good, but the Sicilian is so good that I have never tried the round. I can't go into brooklyn (From NJ) without stopping at the Garden. I was talking to a guy in line once, at L&B, and he told me "I just got out of jail & I came straight here, I didn't even see my mother yet. This place is the best and nothing compares to it.

Pizza in New York. Without a doubt. There is no way you can eat one slice. Whether it be round or square, with topping or without, and no matter how full you are, you're going to order more. So just get yourself two to begin with. And leave room for the Spumoni!

Order from Spumoni Gardens this past Friday night because my niece was up from Florida and she loves their pizza. Well we were very disapponted it was not up to the usual standards (order the sicilian pie). It was mushy and stuck to our teeth which means it must of been undercooked. There was no crispness to it at all. I know that their Sicilian pie is not very crispy, but this was like mush. I hope this is not an indication of what is to come for L&B Spumoni Gardens because if it is we won't be ordering from them again.

I lived a few blocks from L & B. I moved to Texas four years ago and since then have not been able to eat or taste a slice as great as L&B's pizza. Go there and sit outside on a warm summer day and enjoy your slice and right after top it off with one of their great icecream deserts. My mother is coming out to visit for new years and guess what she is bringing me YES!!! YOU GOT IT!! A great big slice of L&B;s yum yum can't wait....

Pros: sabrosa, delicious, fingerlicking good

Cons: i live too far out, of state to get, some L&B pizza

.

While the outside pizza area is wonderful, don't overlook the restaurant itself. Great service and tremendous portions of excellently prepared food make L&B's Spumoni Gardens tops. And don't forget to have some Spumoni for dessert.

Hi, I've got more to say about the Spumoni Gardens, I live on Long Island and atleast once a week my family and I have my father stop by the Spumoni Gardens when he is in Brooklyn, even if he is completely on the otherside and it is totally out of his way just to get the pizza. We even have him get it, say if half of the 6 of us already ate and he calls and says he will get it, even then we have him pick it up and we all have a second dinner!! So no matter what any raters' say the Spumoni Gardens pizza is phanominal!!

This is great pizza. But know that it's sicilian style Grandma pizza, which means that it's got sauce on top of the cheese. This old favorite dishes out terrific trays of pizza for young and old and of course, amazing spumoni. I love the fact that this made the best pizza list, all the way out in Brooklyn. Also, all the cops eat here, which is a glowing recommendation itself

I am in the minority when I disagree with the rating of L & B. The pizza was a novelty and for awhile fabulous, but now other neighborhood pizzerias have perfected the L & B square pizzas. The sauce is so so and the dough is soggy, raw...not what I like in a slice of pizza. The spumoni on the other hand is a must have.

The sauce (or gravy) is unlike any I've tasted...sweet and flavorful. They seem to put the sauce over the mozzarella which allows the sauce to be the primary taste...love it! The oven gives it a crisp well-done taste again, unlike any other Sicilian pizza I've ever had...and I've tried them all!

Only one thing that I must mention -if you are ordering a pie for delivery order very early as you may wait over an hour if it is a busy night.....they don't seem to need the business and it's almost worth waiting for!

Cons: sometimes long line, long wait on delivery, lot fills up quickly

A Brooklyn institution. Always a line because the pizza's that good. Guaranteed to run into old friends or maybe a pro baseball player or two!

If you want and old world feel, old fashioned italian cuisine & service? Go to L & B Spumoni Gardens. They've been in business for about 60 years. The main dining area is small and cozy. They also have outside seating. And the best sicilian slice I've ever tasted!!! You can even eat it cold. Oh, and the spumoni ice cream is home made and mouth watering. NOW THIS IS BROOKLYN.

We ALL know that the Sicilian Pies and the Spumoni are the BEST!!!!

However, the L& B Pasta House is unbeatable. The quality of food and the value are unmatched. The Executive Chef Leonard Kern aka (Lenny) has amazing talent. His specials change weekly, and are AMAZING!!!! He has turned The Pasta House into a culinary adventure. He brings class and sophistication to a neighborhood favorite. CITY FOOD AT BROOKLYN PRICES.

Next time you are at L&B, try the pasta house, you won't regret it. The wait may be long on the weekend, but that just proves it's quality and popularity. People Know good food and keep coming back for more.

Remember, they don't take reservations, so get there early and be nice to the hostesses, THEY WORK HARD!!!!

If you haven't tried L&B square pizza you are definitely missing out. It's unlike any other pizza in New York (maybe the country)!! The sauce is zesty, the crust is crunchy and the cheese, well you don't see the cheese, but it's there!! Any L&B lover can put away at least 3-4 slices at a time and still have room for the outrageous supmoni! Go there! You won't dissappointed and if you are, then there is something wrong with you! Salute!!!!
