Since 1939, this Bensonhurst original—where muscle-bound Brooklynites with deep accents gather in the outdoor patio—has served one of the best Sicilian slices in town. Candy-sweet tomato sauce is generously slathered over tall, doughy rectangles with a crunchy browned bottom. It’s finished with squares of melted mozzarella and zippy strands of Parm.

Spumoni Gardens is about the only place I’ll drive 30 minutes outside of the city for. It’s near Coney Island, so if I’m out that way, I always stop in for a slice of pizza and maybe an ice cream. There are really 2 parts to this place. There is a pickup window for pizza and ice cream that you can enjoy at their outdoor tables. Get ready for lots of kids to be running around. And great people watching in general, for that matter. If you want something a little more old-school Brooklyn, eat dinner in their restaurant. It is basic Italian, huge portions, incredibly low prices. This is not Manhattan, but it is amazingly good family-style Italian.
