Great pizza! Like absolutely THE BEST! The hostess that seats you is never in a good mood though. Everything else is great!

I TRIED SPUMONI GARDEN'S PIZZA FOR THE FIRST TIME AND WAS HOOKED. IT WAS THE SECOND BEST PIZZA I EVER HAD. THE SAUCE AND CHEESE WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD. YOUR PIZZA AND SERVICE IS THE REASON WHY YOU HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR SO LONG.

THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!

T'd OFF!!!

I'm a regular customer who likes the dishes. I was visiting a good friend who lives in the Marlborough Houses (the projects). We decided to order for delivery and was told, "We don't deliver to no project". I was astounded!!! Here it is 4:00 pm Saturday afternoon college football is on and we cannot get an pizza delivery. On top of that my friend is a Vietnam Disabled Marine Corps Veteran.

Not the way to be treated.............

I went there with my wife for a special occasion dinner. We LOVE the pizza and the restaurant is usually good. The nbasic food we ordered was OK baked zite, chicken cutlet parm and fried calamri.
the service was terrible. I pay attention alot. Unless you were one of there favorite regular customers they didit care about us at all. We were squeezed into a small table space. Waited over 5 minutes for SOMEONE to at least notice us. A bus buy brought bread. Anotehjr 5 minutes oir so a waiter came and took the order. Never brought my wife her beverage. Had to finad and ask a bus boy again. finaklly a waiter took our order and that was the last we saw him. waited a long time for the above mentions baasics and the pasta with my chicken parm was so overcooked and it looked like ketchup on top of the pasta.
The buis boy bagged our leftovers. waited about 15 miutes of what would have been dessert but got pissed waiting so long we could get ice cream on our way home.

It seem to be a place where their good ole boy regulars get all the attention and they dont give a dam about the ""others"" the bus boys english wasnt all that good but they did everything right fo me so i was happy. I should have tipped the bus boys instead.

The should stick to their pizza. Although those guys are a little cranky but its only pizza and dont have to deal with them for too long.

Dont know what happened but its not the place it used to be like the story of feeling like family on the back of their menu.

Wont be visiting any time soon for sure !

ciao bella

Best pizza in the world hands down. Do not try to order toppings on your slice rookies. I have also been known to eat 2 or 3 ices afterwards, lemon and rainbow rule the leaderboards. Even though you see other people including cops double parked dont do it. The sicilian pie will look funny if you havent had the goodness yet. Trust the reviews, its not likely you will find a better slice anywhere at anytime. I laugh when non new yorkers tell me where the best pizza in nebraska is. This would likely overload them with the realness. I feel like driving over right now. The food network should really revisit this place and make it 10 times busier than it is now. I can't see people not experiencing this.

Got My Vote!

I don't know who makes the best pizza in Brooklyn. Mostley, it is a matter of taste. There are a lot of really good pizza places, and L&G is one of them. It sure is popular with the locals. At lunch time, the place is crowded with policemen, firemen and local workers all ordering pizza.

L&G also offers a nice assortment of authentic Italian dishes. They put broccoli rabe on most of their sandwiches. The prices are reasonable and the food is very good.

The spumoni ice cream is home made and it is outstanding. They say, their spumoni is the best in North America. I don't know if that is true, but it sure is the best that I have ever tasted anywhere.


Only reason I give them a 4 instead of 5 is the minimum wage people they hire whom don't speak a word of english which blantantly translates in to poor service.

probably the best pizza on the planet.

light, tasty, rich, crisp -- it has it all. can easily go through 4 slices because of the taste and its so light. always go here.

my favorite pizza

I love L&B's pizza, i would say is the best pizza in brooklyn.

The only bad thing is that during winter it is impossible to eat there i always have to pick up my pizza .... I hope this changes and the owners invest a little bit more on the location, they are very famous now and they could do a little bit more for customers.

Hot plates are awful at L&B; but best squares....

I'be been having square slices at L&B for years and their square slices have always been great but their hot food is horrible--no taste and very bland. If you want real good Italian food that's not made by the Arabs at L&B, go to Benny's in Westbury, LI. You won't be disappointed. --Pauly D.
