I can't believe L&B is rates one of the best places in NY to find good pizza. Maybe at one time, but now YUCK!! The pizza is soggy. It is gross. I live 2 blocks from there..I drive 20 minutes to my old neighborhood for good pizza. Seriously, if you like thin pizza with a krispy crust..L&B is NOT the place to go.
Since L&B is a landmark, of sorts, it is always jammed packed with people who don't what good pizza is. Therefore, the service is horrible. The counter guys are very nasty.

On the other hand---L&B SPUMONI is great!!

Pros: best pizza, inexpensive, friendly atmosphere

Cons: crowded- long lines, hard to find parking

.

Not your typical Brooklyn triangle pizza that's served on every corner. L&B puts the cheese on the bottom with tons of sauce on top. Anyone I've met who has tried it, has loved it. It's so good, we send gophers from Wall St to pick up pies for lunch. The spumoni (italian ice cream) also deserves raves. Be warned - between the pizza and spumoni the place is packed nightly in the summer. Definitely worth the trip.

Pros: the food

Cons: summertime parking

Beside the pizza area is their Pasta House, it's a 10+ !
The wait may be long (sometimes up to 1 hour) but it is well woth it. The place is not fancy, but their food is wonderful. Their main chef Louie, makes the oddest specials you will ever see and the portions are quite large. You will probably take home leftovers.

You must try it and see for yourself.

Pros: Great food, Good service, Never rushed

Cons: No Reservations, Long wait, small interior

.

Thin crust, lots of sauce and very little cheese, it's not your typical Sicilian slice of pizza, but can't explain why I have a hard time eating less than 4 of those babies! Top that off with some great Spumoni and that's just about makes a perfect summer day!

I have been coming to the Spumoni Gardens since I married my wife(13 yrs), who is related to the L & B family. I have to say it is the best Sicilian pie I have eaten in the world! We stop by anytime we are in the area. Keep up the great work!

L & B Spumoni Gardens has without a doubt the world's best Sicilian pizza. People line up year round for slices right out of the oven. This mouth watering treat has very little cheese and is topped with bright red sauce with a bit of a bite. The crust is crispy and well done. Even though I moved away to Staten Island 22 years ago, I still make it my business to stop by 86th street several times a year to whet my palate. The only downside is that it tastes best when eaten hot out of the oven.

located in a part of brooklyn you probably didn;t know existed, but if you can find it, you'd better believe it's worth the trip. whatever you get to eat, make sure to save room in your belly for the spumoni, and in your freezer for the quart you'll want to bring home.

They have the best sauce on the Sicilian pizza in the WORLD. The regular pizza has a nice thin crispy crust. Tell them to "burn it", for a extra crispy cruist. And of course the Spumoni is the BEST IN THE WORLD bar none! Can not be duplicated.
And don't forget to be on the lookout for some of Brooklyn's famous wise guys. Theyb are the real thing.

Everything about the pizza is awesome. This is my neighborhood pizzeria, although I live miles away, it is worth the trip every time.They make sicillians only, and put the cheese under the sauce which is unique and allows the cheese to stay in place. Its made consistently so you never get a slice, pie, or half pie which has been sitting around. The guys behind the counter are not only friendly, but funny, and will go out of their way to make sure your visit was fun. No wonder they've been there for ever!, and don't forget the Totoni :)

There is no better Pizza in the world than L&B's square. It is worth the trip from Long Island into Brooklyn for.

An experience on a Sunday in the Summer around 6:00 p.m. listening to Brooklyn's own Joe Causi and eating L&B in a massive crowd. Defines 86th Street.

Everything about this restaurant is pleasing (with the exception of the long wait for the restaurant). Their sicilian pizza cannot be beat and I ALWAYS take home a couple of squares for my freezer. I moved away from that neighborhood ten years ago, but still make it my business to get there at least once a week and as soon as we sink our teeth into that slice, we (my friend and I) simultaneously say "MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM"! I hope they never change their recipe!

I can only speak about the Sicilian(square) pizza here, that is my favorite. Yes parking can be a problem at times but that's because so many people feel the same way I do about their Square pizza. Double parking is the norm here. For me the only negative thing to say about L&B is that I live 70 miles away.

At L&B you feel right at home. They have home made spumoni which tastes like a dream. Their Sicilian style pizza is one of a kind, I know people from across the country that come to have this pizza. One Entree from their restaraunt is enough to fill two adults, not to mention that all their dishes are out of this world. The important thing is that L&B Spumoni Gardens is extremely reasonably priced. It is hard to eat pizza anywhere else once you eaten here. In the summer this place is packed and there is out door seating available.

This pizza USED to be GREAT about 10 years ago and when I went back recently I was very dissappointed. The red sauce had no flavor, the cheese lacked that fresh quality cheese taste you expect from a well-known pizzaria, and the slice overall was really dry. Would go to Lenny & Johns Pizzaria on Flatbush Ave and Flatlands Ave over this place now anyday....Now thats good Brooklyn pizza!

The perfect end to a day at the beach is a Trip to L&B Spumoni gardens. WHile their round Napolitan pizza is good, it is nothing compare to their square Sicilian pie. For best results order Half a tray, that's 12 slices of a 24 slice slab of Pizza perfection. The cheese is covered in sauce and hard to see but not hard to taste. The sauce has a lemony olivey taste and the crust has the right mix of chewey and crunchy textures.

SQUARE PIZZA AT IT'S BEST. LOTS OF SAUCE AND JUST A TOUCH OF CHEESE MAKE THIS PIZZA QUITE UNIQUE. A BROOKLYN LANDMARK FOR MANY YEARS: WONDERFUL ON A SUMMER NIGHT. TRY TO GET INTO THE RESTAURANT ON A SUMMER WEEKEND...GOOD LUCK. WE HAD TO WAIT ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF...TOO LONG, BUT IF YOU HAVE TIME, WORTH THE WAIT.

I've lived in Brooklyn all my life. I travel all around the city daily. I have been to pizza places all across the eastern seaboard, LA, Chicago, and there is nothing like L & B's!!!! It's like having the goodfellas and meet with the pope - it's just rare! You can't find pizza, ladies & gentleman, and that old school Brooklyn attitude (when everyone knew each other) anywhere else anymore. The square slkices are the best and for dessert i recommend some spumoni or soft ice cream on a cone! If you're really looking to gain some weight, go for a napalotano slice, a sicilian slice, and banana split to top it off!

This place is pizza. The square pizza is unparalleled anywhere else on this earth. The spumoni is also first rate here.

Although I no longer live in Brooklyn, whenever I make the trek the family always requests a stop off at L&B. During the summer the outdoor area is a great place to sit and eat you pizza. Just make sure you end it all with some spumoni!
