Best of Bensonhurst
Pizza, Knapp Pizza III (Specifically number 3. I really don't know if they're affiliated with any others. Or even why they are Knapp all the way over here). Kings Highway and West 1st Street.
Italian Sweet Bakery absolutely has to be Elegante on Avenue U, between West 6th and West 7th.
Italian Savory Bakery, for me, is Kings Highway Bakery on Kings Highway, between West 6th and West 7th.
I know these border on Gravesend, but I believe they are still technically Bensonhurst.
