Lisa Wernau

For sure the best I've had since moving to Jackson, NJ. Just like home coming from Brooklyn/Staten Island. Authentic, great price, certainly enough to take home also. Workers are very friendly, just an all around nice place, feels like home.

Raymond Pilch

Great pizza. The decor if your eating there will not impress. But, the friendly service will.

Daniel DeSclafani

Had gotten regular pasta with tomato sauce. Was a great meal to have. Always love going here for some quick pasta, always a great deal for the amount you get as well!

Laura Finlaw

The best pizza,food ,help,owner and prices

Ed Licht

The restaurant is small...the portions are large and delicious, servers are all extremely friendly, manager goes out of his way to accommodate and thank you for your business. Definitely one of our favorite Italian restaurants.

mark jelley

Goes to show you looks aren't everything. Very crowded for a reason. Great pizza and the salad is top notch. Have not sat in the dinning room yet but there is always a full house. Plenty of friendly staff keep everything steaming along. You have to try it yourself, you will be back.

Heather M

ryan herzenberg

Not only the best place in town, best place in town and neighboring towns too! Pete and his staff do it right!

Frank Gatto

Met my cousin here for a bite to eat. Wound up getting the shrimp parm hero. I have to say being a brooklynite all my life this place had a dam good hero! Shrimps were a really good size, sauce was great and plenty of mozzarella! I would definitely order it again. The service was great too, I didn't catch the guys name but he was on point, funny and pleasant! My cousin and his wife had the calzones and a square which they both enjoyed. Also try their coffee soda, similiar to Manhattan special, my cousin says they are really good. Prices are very reasonable also.

Casey holmes

Great food nice people quick large sub' s for great price.

Douglas Smith

Awesome, crispy, tasty pizza. We had the Popeye with spinach and ricotta and added mushrooms. Every bite was wonderful. The decor isn't fancy but the food is terrific and the staff is courteous and professional. Can't wait to go back!

harold marcus

Great place for salads and Italian food. portions were definitely large. Great value.for your

Gail Brody

Always an amazing dinner, waitress so good at her job, way more food then you can eat, but nice to be able to take some home! The owner is a great guy!!!!


Wow!!!! Brooklyn Square is the REAL DEAL!!! I searched long and far in New Jersey for a real upside down square pie, after hearing out about this place, I had to go see for myself, I ordered the Brooklyn square pie and Oh My God! It was love at 1st bite! Flavorful sauce, beautiful texture, quality mozzarella, baked to absolute perfection! This place my friends is a DIAMOND in the rough! Went back a 2nd, and 3rd time to see if there was continuity at this place, and they are absolutely consistent! My family really enjoyed the pizza! NJ's finest pizza hands down!

Anita Camuto

Amazing food. Not your typical pizzeria food. Love it. Pete the owner is so pleasant and always looking to please customers.

Joe Emerson

Some of the best pizza I've eaten. Would recommend the nonna pie for those who like thin pizza. The flavor is amazing. Well worth the 35 minute round trip.

Michael Monaco

Great Italian food and great service

Steve Meringolo

We just moved to the area recently and was looking for good pizza. Someone recommended Brooklyn Square. I went there Friday night to buy 4 slices of square. I look on the counter and notices there wasn't any square so I ask the guy behind the counter for 4 slices thinking a pie is cooking and would be out soon. This obnoxious rude guy tells me I cant buy slices he's to busy taking care of customers so take something already made. First of all what the F..... Am I not a customer and you want me to eat pizza that looked like it was sitting there all day. I wouldn't go back to that place ever again. They do not know how to treat customers. It doesn't matter what you buy a slice or ten pies you treat every customer the same.

Gjergj Tr

A friend of mine took me to try Brooklyn Square since he knows I like to try different spots for pizzas. I took a salad and a pizza. Was a nice one, I liked the crust. The staff at the counter need to be a little bit more friendly with customers.. Otherwise a good place for a quick bite.

Doreen Spinelli

Had dinner there tonight. The place was packed when we arrived and we waited a while to be seated but it was worth the wait. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. Didn't get her name. Peter's calamari was very good, lil spicy but cooked perfectly. I ordered stuffed rigatoni on vodka sauce. The portion size was huge. Very good dish and took more than half of it home. Definitely one of the better restaurants for Italian food. Going back soon for their pizza which I was told is awesome.

Kim Corby

Amazing food and staff, one of my absolute all time favorite places for Italian food and pizza. 10/10 superb service.

Edward Monti

Best pizza in NJ, very close to L&B's in Brooklyn. Every dish we order is excellent. The Broccoli Rabe is beyond amazing. Delicious. Veal Parm, Veal Saltimbocca, Calamari, wings, and salmon are some of the entrees we've tried. All excellent. Didn't like the meatball hero, looked like meatloaf and I didn't like the taste but that was the only sandwich I tried I did not like but I'm prejudiced, my meatballs are the best. Over all this is our haunt now. The Staff are EXCELLENT, FRIENDLY, PROFESSIONAL AND ATTENTIVE. WARNING, FRIDAYS, ESPECIALLY DURING LENT ARE MOBBED. DONT GO HUNGRY YOU WILL HAVE A WAIT. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE. I HOPE THE OWNER EXPANDS, GETS S BIGGER PLACE ON ROUTE 9, OFFERS KARIOKI AND MUSIC SIMILAR TO WHAT THE OLD ANGELOS USED TO DO. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT OUT HERE. BRIOKLYN SQUARE IS THE BOMB, LOVE IT. THE OWNER IS A GREAT GUY TOO.

Michael Prasad

This is the neighborhood friendly pizza joint as you can find in just about any Jersey town. If you are a regular, you will keep coming - if you are pizza shopping for the best in Howell or Jackson - you should try it, but I'm betting you will find better elsewhere - like Spanos, Solo Bella or even Romeo's down the street.

Leeann Bailin

We called for a sqaure pie with pepperoni. They said they can't put pepperoni on a square. What! Yet there's a picure of it on their website. So aggravating . No thanks!

Bryan Attinson

Average pizza at a premium price

mark lewis

Read reviews of this place for 2 years...finally decided to take the 1 hour ride to try it out and was that ever a great choice! The Brooklyn Square, the honeymoon pie and the vodka square were all amazing..I have a feeling that I'll have many more trips here on the motorcycle!

Joseph Tordella

Brooklyn Square Pizza is the highlight of an unassuming strip mall. The friendly chef and staff help guide you through a wide range of slices with creative toppings and designs. Awesome dough and high-quality ingredients. Uniquely, sesame seeds are on the crust of many of their pizzas.

Joe LaMonica

Brooklyn Square...Wonderful people, delicious, fresh food. What more can you ask for?

AJ Schmidt

Amazing pizza, try the Spinach Artichoke, the upsdie down, or the Honeymoon. They get very busy so be prepared to wait or not have the slices you want durning the dinner rush (understandable) but I have never had a bad meal from here.

William A.

Try it, you'll not be disappointed.

Elyse F

Little hole in the wall place with great pizza! It's by far my favorite pizza place near me! I went in and found so many pies, already made.. I took a few different slices home to try! I liked them all!

Peter Aposto

Top notch! Went in a Friday night and waited an hour to be seated because it was so crowded, but that didn't matter because it was worth it. The upside down and Peter special are phenomenal.

Alexandr Kolke

It is not Italian foods. I ordered 2 wraps. Delivery took 2 hours and when driver took money he even did not ask If I want change. They added too much sauce and overcooked shrimp and mushrooms. This was terrible.

Virgil Hollender

The food is really good but they need more room for eat in.

Jason Pylarinos

Where have you been all my life, said the fat kid that lives in my belly. Wow. I have had great thick pan pizza everywhere. The pizza there has so much flavor but it’s so lite and airy. I was amazed at how good it was and how crazy bizzy it was. Now this is why I bumped a pizza place to 5 stars. The place was bumpin. Phones were ringing and everyone who worked there were WORKING. Not on there phones or ignoring you. They were all happy and working very, very well together. It’s nice to see. PLUS the pizza in case I did not mention was crazy good. I have tried almost all now. Yup, that good.

Brian Gallagher

Incredible Pizza! Love the sesame seeds on the crust and the sauce is one of the best!

Jeff Erdman

Great Pizza, large entrees, entrees come with a salad always enough to take home for another meal, prices $$ very accommodating for parties of 8 10 and 12 great to bring friends never cost more than $25 for 30 per person and stuff to can be

Min Oh

Nurije Gjonbalaj

Friendly people excellent food can't ask for more .

Spunkyssportscards Spunky

The best pizza I had nice people to


Amazing pizza and AMAZING staff

Mitch Walla

Best pizza place around. I loooove the square pie, the round pie is also delicious, with their signature sesame seed crust (on the round pie). Everything else is great and the staff is incredibly friendly.

B Smith

Peter (owner) is great. Donna (waitress) is awesome. Food is outstanding.


Very Authentic Italian food,so good felt like I was at my grandmothers!!! Staff is friendly,was my first time going will definitely go back.

Christopher Bontrager

Best tasting pizza in Jackson NJ area. Due to the high demand of orders you may want to pick it up instead of getting it delivered because the wait time for delivery can take awhile on weekends.

Alexander King

The upside down pie is rated best pizza in NJ, need I say more?

Nilsa Montaner

Never disappointed when we come here

Justin Payton

Recently moved from NY to NJ. In NY there are so many good pizza places. I really took that for granted because when I moved to NJ there are very very few good pizza places. Someone we know suggested trying Brooklyn Square..This place is a diamond in the rough. Pizza was very good. The staff was super friendly and I ended up meeting the owner,who is from Brooklyn, and we ended up know the same guy. He was really friendly and you can tell he knows what he’s doing with pizza. So if you are in search of really good pizza and are in the Jackson area I would highly recommend you stop in and enjoy a few delicious slices.

donna rose

Everything is so delicious,worth the wait.Generous portions.Mangia❤️

Michael Wissel

Best pizza I've had in NJ! Their upside down square pizza is amazing. Garlic knots are excellent.

Nuria Barrios

I ordered for take out, it was Peters special pizza, and I loved it, it was fresh and delicious. I definitely will be back for more. Staff very friendly. More expensive than others pizza place but it worth it.

Leslie Moj

Great pizza, have to try the square pie. Definitely a smaller restaurant, not your average pizza parlor. All ingredients seemed to be fresh, but maybe the slice i had was out a little too long. Would like to go back and try some more from their menu!

Patrick Sanchez

Great Food & Pizza

Raz Erel

Great place and atmosphere.. Peters Special Square Pie was amazing?!!

Zach Hermenau

The reason this pizza place is even getting two stars, is the delivery service was speedy and polite, the pizza cut clean. Moving on, ordering a single pizza from this restaurant will cost you the equivalent of a filet mignon and shrimp dinner-- not even joking sadly. One large buff chix. pizza was near thirty dollars, not a single other item besides a side of bleu cheese, and it tasted like they used Frank's Red Hot as the sauce. Ultimately, this place will rip your pocket out for some seriously underwhelming, below average pizza. Would not recommend the pizza if it was 15 dollars less honestly, the price just adds insult to injury. I dont understand how this place gets such positive reviews.

Caribou Lou

Very good pizza, and could be the best in the area. The Pete's special pizza is delicious. Their sauce in particular is what makes it so good. Their crust could be softer while staying crispy on the outside. Great customer service too which is saying something for a pizza joint.

Vincent Snyder

Always a busy place because the food is always delicious.

Andrea DeMiceli

Fantastic The best pizza in New Jersey.. I


Took a detour on my way back from Atlantic City on a weekend for a few slices. The cheese slice was good enough but the pepperoni was completely saturated with oil and uneatable. Probably better to order a full pie than to pick a slice from the display.

Andrea West

This place is phenomenal. Definitely arrive hungry. My sister and I both got dinners and the amount of food you get per meal could definitely be shared between two people. The food was great and our waitress Donna was awesome. We went back the next week and got a pizza. The pizza was great as well. If you like Italian food, I would highly recommend going here!

Michael Gleason

My 1st pie was great. Went back 3 more times and it degraded each time. Long wait for take out, 45 minutes. I'm done.

Nicole DeLoi

Slower service, tough chicken.

Caroline Kiebach

AMAZING pizza AND customer service! We had the almighty Upside Down Brooklyn Square. GET IT! Also, the owner & staff really know how to take care of their customers. Thank you so much Brooklyn Square! Can’t wait to return! We DEFINITELY recommend this place. Delicious AND authentic!

Gina Zangrillo

Really delicious food. Eat in or take out. Pizza and meals. Never disappointed.

Joshua Johnson

Delicious square pizza. One of the better sauces on a pizza I've ever had. Can't recommend this place enough!

Cristein Gendy

Drove down to try their famous Brooklyn Square Pizza. We ordered a pie and took it piping hot to go. It was very good, except the bottom of the pizza was burnt. Like charred black burnt. Peeling the bottom off the crust definitely helped …

Kimberly Corn

Went here for New Years Eve dinner with my parents. The food was good, I would have liked dessert but there were only Cannolis. The waitress was new but the owner was very much involved. When they get more organized they can be a good, nice Itialian restaurant. I would definitely go back again.

The Nonna's thin crust Sicilian and the rice balls OMG!!!! 5 Stars Every Day!

Jonathan McCann

The pie which provided the restaurant its namesake is superb and unique. This Brooklyn Square, a 12 part masterpiece, is also known as ‘the upside down’ is spectacular. The crust is so uniquely made, with a soft chewy texture that is cooked just right. The crust is then topped with cheese, baked, and then covered in a sweet tomato sauce. The restaurant has ample parking, outdoor picnic benches, and a tight pick up space. The entry is lined with Autographs demonstrating what a prize you’ve managed to find.

Craig Davis

Awesome food and service!

Rada Shakov

I grew up in Brooklyn and know what great pizza is! Couldn’t have been happier to find out that one of my favorite Brooklyn pizza places was now in Jackson! The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was so helpful and friendly ! Definitely will be coming here more often and keeping my fingers crossed that they open a restaurant in Toms River!!

Darima Tcheveev


Ari Mandel

Great, great food, fun and friendly staff, awesome place.

Monica Orozco

Simply delicious! I wish I had taken a picture. We order 2 pies the upside down square and the eggplant parm with ricotta my fiance was skeptical about the second one and he was pleasantly surprised... They do come out smoking had to wait a little to be able to eat. You have to try it

Zion El

I have tried to like this place. I like the square pizza, but the staff attitude besides the owner sucks. An recently I decided to try a greek salad ( I guess first off was a no no buying a greeG salad in an Italian restaurant), but instead of what I'm used to getting elsewhere was more like a iceberg lettuce salad with a few whole slice cucumber, olives, chunk of tomato, onions and a boat load of feta. My salad actually had multiple chunks of iceberg lettuce (cheap sh!t), and not one, maybe one piece of green leaf. All of the lettuce was yellow or white. Besides the pizza itself, square pizza although very acidic, is overrated.

Marcellus Brandon

Great staff just extremely busy long wait time

Diane Clark

Best pizza ever! Love the Honeymooners pizza. Perfection!!!

LisaAnn Hugo

Very good. They have a take and style that is uniquely their own. A must try.

Raymond Hagensen

Very good pizza can't wait to try there dinners

Liz Cannizzaro

Pizza is great. However, we ordered pizza and chicken fingers to be delivered 5 minutes away from them. They took an hour and a half to deliver it and it was below warm in temperature. The customer service is horrible. We called twice and …

Michael Dauber

First time here from a recommendation and we certainly will be back. Bring your appetite or be prepared to take food home. Everything was very good, food and service.

Bhumi Afzal

The pizza here is amazing! Between their sauce, the sesame seed crust, and their signature upside down Sicilian, it's no wonder they were voted NJ's #1 pizzeria. My family and I will be back soon!

Moira Miller

Wonderful food and Donna was the perfect server!

Justin M Foster

I grew up in Brooklyn and know what great pizza is!Great place for salads and Italian food. portions were definitely large. Great value.for your
