we hadn't been to Lenny's pizzeria in Howard Beach for quite some time and went back several months ago. We were pleasantly surprised so this evening when deciding where to go for dinner we decided to try it again. unfortunately the food left a lot to be desired. it seems as though the prices have gone up and the quality of the food had gone down. not only did the food have no taste but the presentation was just as poor. My husband ordered a pasta dish with sausage and chicken and broccoli rabe. the chicken was pale and looked under cooked but at the same time it was dried out the sausage was completely dried up and curled at the edges it was so dry and the pasta even though we asked for al dente was soggy in a tasteless wet white watery sauce. my dish was equally as bad and I was happy that I did not order anything fancy. it was a simple fried calzone which in the past I've had there and was luscious. the inside was cold and when it was reheated it became so hard that I could not chew it. with so much competition on the boulevard where food is concerned this was not up to par. I realize it is just a pizzeria and I'm not looking or expecting more than I should have this just was not good. I looked around at the other tables and the food on them and nothing was presented well. Oh and we were told that they had run out of bread so into a BIG bread basket they put four little tiny pieces of some sort of a broccoli roll that they had cUT as a replacement for the bread. the basket was big the bread was tiny again the presentation was awful at least put it on a small plate so it doesn't look so puny. I think they need someone overseeing the dining room which by the way needs to be updated. We won't be going back anytime soon. I don't usually write a review but really felt like we wasted our money. There seemed to be no effort on anyone's part to make the food look OR taste good. Sorry lennys ;*(

I passed by Lenny's for year's thinking it was just a pizza place. One day when I was coming back from Rockaway Beach I decided to give it a try. It look's like a pizza place from the outside but there is a large, homey and inviting dining area with booths and tables in the rear. our waitress Barbara was frlom the start very friendly and helpful. Service and food were great. i loved the fact you can order wine by the carafe. There were a very nice crowd of people eating. The place almost feels like you are in some one's home. I have been back several time's and tell all my friend's about this place.
