A little history..
Founder Ludovico Barbati came to the United States in 1917 from Torella dei Lombardi, Italy. In 1938, Barbati sold Spumoni and Italian Ice from a horse and wagon. In 1939, he purchased a vacant property on 86th Street to make the spumoni and ice. By the mid 1950s, the location came to be L&B Spumoni Gardens, with the spumoni factory, a pizzeria and a luncheonette all on site.
