First opened in 1939, L&B Spumoni Gardens is most famous for its Sicilian pie, spumoni and ices. They have casual outdoor seating, as well as a more formal inside dining room with a full menu of classic red-sauce Italian cuisine. With lots of room for running around and high-chairs available, the atmosphere is very family-friendly. This Bensonhurst, Brooklyn pizzeria is popular with neighborhood residents, as well as pizza lovers who don't mind the subway ride.

Their signature Sicilian pie has a thick crust and is baked on a sheet pan, yielding square slices. If you buy just a slice, I suggest getting an edge or a corner, since that gives you the chance to experience the delicious crust. I love that this pizzeria is casual and has plenty of outdoor seating, which makes it a great choice for visitors when the weather is nice.
