so i've been to a bunch of places in ny and nj over the years and would like to see what others here think. fyi i think 90% of the sicilian pizza out there is below average or flat-out atrocious but generally trust the judgment of all you guys, so i'm really curious to hear what you have to say.

    Without a doubt the #1 sicilian slice can be had at DiFara's on Ave J in Brooklyn.

    Since this is the Tri-State board I'll add that Umberto's in New Hyde Park makes a great Grandma slice.

        I whole heartedly agree! DiFara's is #1. Dom is a rare interdimensional shape shifter. He is actually from another universe. They have brough precious pizza secrets here to help us. GO THERE.

        Sorry! Flipping from bard to board this early can do that do a girl.

        So if you're ever on the island check out Umberto's.

        1. hands down: difara. it's unbelievable.

          1. L & B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn - I drive all the way from New Jersey just for their square pizza!

            1. overall, it has to be di fara's...just the most delicious piece of pizza ive ever had.

              next up is l&b...amazing but in a totally different way. i hear they use beer in their dough.
