The Zagat Review
This circa-1939 Gravesend “icon” is beloved for its “twin legends” – Sicilian square pizza that “rules” and “creamy, refreshing” spumoni in portions big enough to feed “all the families in your building” ; there's a “dated” dining room, but in summer most opt to order at the window and “eat outside” with the “neighborhood characters.”

Great pizza. The square slice is very different than any other square. Delicious sauce, cheese on the bottom baked into the light, fluffy crust. Just delicious. Square slices are small but fairly cheap (approx. $2.75). If you're a pizza lover, you can probably eat 3 squares and not blink an eye. The regular slices are very good too, but to me they don't compare. You can go into the restaurant and get a full pie or walk next door and grab slices.

Very Brooklyn Italian place. We had the "world famous Sicilian Pizza." Very doughy crust, but nice that it wasn't smothered in cheese. Kitschy decor. Service was ok, but seemed like since we were just a couple and not a big table, waiter didn't pay much attention to us. Might be more fun as a big table, as everything is served family style, but not sure I'd go rushing back to find out.

Have been going here since I was a kid, the pizza is some of my favorite. It really is one of the best square pies you can get...HOWEVER, And the reason for the 2 star review is that at 830 at night (when they are open till 12am)I apparently can’t get a pie made fresh to order. I also was told I couldn’t speak to anyone about my gripe. So thanks for the great pizza over the years, but not for the EXTREMELY terrible service. I probably won’t be ordering again if this is how customers are treated regularly.
