A relative newcomer in Staten Island, where the borough's legendary pizzerias date back decades, Sharkey's Square opened in the summer of 2010, drawing immediate comparisons to L&B Spumoni Gardens. The slices here are a little denser but still layer the cheese right on top of the dough, which itself is a bit sweet. The sauce is rich and garlic-laden and also leans to the sweet side. It's a slice that should keep Sicilian fans on the Staten Island side of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
