The lowdown

If you’re a sucker for nostalgia and a connoisseur of Sicilian pizza, you’ll love this Bensonhurst landmark where locals and pizza pilgrims line up for the signature square pie (a light, crunchy crust, adorned with a minimum of mozzarella beneath a layer of tangy tomato sauce) and a paper cup of the frozen house specialty.
