Lento’s is all old Brooklyn, from its creaky wooden booths and dark barroom to its relaxed service and neighborhood feel. Opened in 1933, the restaurant still shapes its menu around most of the classic Italian-American dishes, but its deserved claim to fame is pizza: thin-crust, modestly sauced and well crafted. Almost cracker flat, Lento’s pies emerge taut and flavorful, painted with a sauce of plum tomatoes and a minimum of cheese, and such toppings as fresh mushrooms, artichoke hearts and grease-free hot sausage. For appetizers, cold seafood salad is refreshing and tart, and lightly charred eggplant with fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers is a lighter sibling of eggplant parm, and well able to whet the pre-pizza appetite.


A second Lento's is located in Staten Island.
