...but that's about it. This is a no-frills, all about italian food place. The food tastes great, but if you're looking for a great atmosphere, this probably isn't the place to go as it's VERY laid back, somewhat crowded, and a little too loud for it's size.

TRULY NY'S BEST PIZZA SQUARES!

There is nothing else to say. Just GO! Order their "Squares" and see for yourself! After you knock off a bunch of these tasty pizzas, hit the ice cream area for the best Sundaes in Bensonhurst! Their Restaraunt has a full menu as well with great eats! RATING:***** (5 Stars!)(And I don't give that out very easily!)

If you're ever in Brooklyn, you MUST go to spumoni gardens. They are extremely well known for their squares and of course their spumoni. There are four "stations" to L&B Spumoni Gardens: pizza, spumoni/ice cream, heros and the restaurant. There are picnic tables outside and you can usually find an open one. However, if you'd like to sit in the restaurant, there may be a wait. But, your wait will be rewarded and the portions are huge. L&B Spumoni Gardens is almost always busy so expect double parked cars and a busy parking lot. If you're not familiar with Brooklyn, you may want to bring along your GPS or check mapquest because it's in an odd spot.

Unique, light, smoking-hot squares. Not too much mozzarella, lots of sauce & grated peccorino romano. I can, and have eaten more than 6 at a time. You can not find this pizza style anywhere else, yet.

L&B Spumoni Gardens has the greatest pizza ever, hands down. There is just no question about it. The restaurant is fantastic to with great pasta choices, all for reasonable prices.

Horrible Experience!!!

We visited on a Saturday evening, February 25, 2012, me, my wife, and 2 very hungry children. We were greeted by a not so interested hostess who told us the wait would be between 30 to 45 minutes. We figured since it was a Saturday and it did look crowded that it was probably worth the wait. 30 minutes came and went then so did 2 hours. That's right, two hours waiting to be seated. You might say that you would never wait that long, but after you invest 1 hour then 1 hour and 20 minutes you become reluctant to leave. During that time we noticed people walking in from outside saying hello to the staff on a first name basis and getting seated ahead of everyone else that was waiting for literally hours. Still we brushed that aside and decided to wait. Finally, our name was called and we had a table!! Our waiter came and we finally ordered our appetizer and main courses. We sat and waited patiently. Every now and again our waiter would say "It should be soon, the kitchen is backed up". We waited for a total of 40 minutes. Enough was enough!! We asked for the check and we were told that in order to make up the terrible time and long wait we had they would take off $5.00 off the check and give us a free dessert. Thanks but no Thanks! We had gone to a restaurant prepared to pay for dinner not hoping to get free food. Shame on this place to do this to a family with kids!!
