We love to come here with our children. Their pizza's are the best, no dripping oil and all ingredients are fresh. They have another location in Ridgewood, and it's equally awesome. One thing to note, they take CASH ONLY.

Love this place. Do not eat any other pizza. Fried mozzarella, antipasto salad and everything else that is served here, is delicious. Cash only. No slices.

Party of 6 for dinner. Not a fan of the pizza, didn't like the sauce, and the crust was very tough like the dough is over mixed. Pasta dishes we're just okay. Server was friendly and efficient. Probably will not return.

Brick oven pizza at Brooklyn's is good but I'm used to a crisper crust and this seemed soggy. Probably the brick oven. Not my favorite. The place has been around for a long long time so they do have a following. Try it for yourself.
