We heard some scuttlebutt late last week about Lento's closing. Bay Ridge Blog offers more supporting evidence: "Went past Lento's tonight, and it was closed at 7:30 p.m. And the word Lento's was cut out of the awning. I hope that they have not closed. That would be awful."
Operating as a pizzeria since 1933, the place was a neighborhood favorite and, for some, a destination pizzeria. When I lived in Bay Ridge after first moving to New York City, Lento's was easily a once-a-week affair for me.
So here's to Lento's, R.I.P. Slice will pour some on the ground for you.
