Foursquare Tips

  • Bring anyone you're dating here. If the person doesn't think it's awesome, stop dating that person.
  • The brick oven pizza is the best in Carroll Gardens. I've been coming here for 28 years!
  • It's like eating in grandma's basement on Sundays, complete with the grouchy waiters. I love this place! Just don't expect to ever finish off a pizza on your own.
  • Not sure what all the hype is about. Pizza is meh - too thick cheese and not very flavorful. Love that it's an old school spot but not worth the calories!
  • Even if the pizza was no good, it'd still be worth a visit for the fantastic old-school decorstraight from a Scorcese movie. Luckily, the pizza's great, so dinner here is a must-do if you're nearby.
  • Best pie and red sauce date spot in Bklyn. Louie (Son of Sam) will take care of you
  • Louie loves the pie w/ garlic, sausage and mushroom, sometimes olives.
  • Pizza and pasta are good, but you can find their equal at other places in Bklyn. You cannot find gnocchi like this anywhere, though. Handmade. Pillowy. This is something special.
  • Love this place. Chicken Francese and Sauteed Escarole is excellent. 80 years in business and family owned.
  • Really, really, really good...falling off the bone. - Anthony Bourdain, host of No Reservations
  • The food is great. No frills classic Italian restaurant.
  • Pizzas and pastas, cant go wrong! Also the Chianti is great and cheap.
  • Looks like they close the last couple of weeks of summer for vacation.
  • The baked clams, pizza and steak pizziola are all solid.
  • Old school vibes, solid pizza, and cheap red wine - can't lose.
  • The pizza is awesome. Enjoy the old school vibes and make sure to chat up Louie.
  • Get a pie, clams, lasagna and eggplant Parmesan
  • Classic but great red sauce American Italian joint. Get a pie (go with only a few toppings), baked clams, lasagna and eggplant parmigiana.
  • The most perfect, classic Brooklyn spot. Walking through the door is like stepping through a time machine. Eat and be happy.
  • This old school Italian joint is legit. The pizza is up there with the best NY style pie joints.
