Having come from NY, it is sometimes hard to find good pizza in the south. This is a nice little restaurant for family dining. My favorite is their eggplant parm. Just like Nana used to make. The garlic knots are delish' and it is a go to place for unexpected company or just an "I don't feel like cooking "... More

Visiting our kids and grandkids. They picked this place as patio allows kids some space to wander. Lots of other families were also there. Only one size of pizza and it was mostly crust with little sauce, cheese or items ordered.

Friends who are NC implants from NY say this place is very good and so we tried it and loved it. 5 stars easily. Pizzas and salads are amazing. This is one of our new favorites!

After my not so good experience here back in January, I took the owner up on her request to revisit the restaurant. This time my eggplant parmigiana was prepared as I have come to expect based on my 15 years of dining here. I don't believe that Tripadvisor should be used as a way to criticize one experience but I... More

More like a pizza restaurant. Interior is built around a large scenic fireplace. A fair selection of Italian/pizza style foods. Quite tasty. Decor is of Brooklyn, NY landmarks and subway stops.Tables are given signs with names of these subway stops and servers deliver to your "stop."

This is the only pizza I will eat in the Lake Norman area. The pizza reminds me of pizza from my youth in New Jersey. Trust me when I say that I have eaten at all of their competitors in Cornelius and Huntersville who pale in comparison. Go with confidence!!

It's really too bad that the quality of food here has fallen. This used to be the go to place for a good quick Italian meal. You could always count on good baked ziti, pizza but things have changed and it's not for the best. The sauce just is not the same.. It's so very bland. Chicken parm had no... More

I have always enjoyed the eggplant Parmesan heros/sandwiches at Brooklyn South but after this past Sunday's experience, it will be a very long time until I return there. Being Italian, I know how eggplant Parmesan is prepared and since I have always enjoyed it at Brooklyn South, I was stunned when I called up to complain to the owner. I... More
