  • Published on Mar 6, 2019
  • Mark Iacono’s restaurant, Lucali, is arguably the most famous pizza place in Brooklyn. The restaurant does not take reservations, and lines form out the door hours before opening time. INSIDER’s Herrine Ro visits the restaurant and attempts to make Mark’s unique style of pizza.

    I dont know how you can call a pizza place that opened in 2006 " The Most Legendary Pizza Restaurant in Brooklyn" LOL Grimaldi's and Totonno's are the oldest and Di Fara's has been there since the 60's is the best in BK. Lenny and Johns is another old school pizza restaurant. Lucali is a hipster joint. Its no better than Totonno's or Grimaldi's. You can call it one of the best but its not the most legendary.

      Lenny and johns is garbage the only reason to go there it's open after you hit bar on Flatbush lucali is a hipster joint yes mark is far from a hipster makes a great pie. I just can't stand the hipsters there and difara all you have is hipsters and tourists waiting on lines for hours to pay $5 from dirty Dominick. And isn't even to much anymore because he's almost 90
