The Italian sub is huge. It's also really good, but only order it if you can handle a whole lot of meat.
gigantic meatball subs for $10. could easily feed 2 people.
Get the fried prosciutto balls they are incredible
On man that chicken parm hero is part of my life style.
Italian combo hero
Get the Italian Combo. Plenty of meat on hearty Italian bread.
This place has all the charm of NY in the 1920s (it's apparently the oldest cheese store in the country), and their sandwiches are simple and delicious.
Great old-fashioned Italian deli, large sandwiches
Italian subs are massive and generously filled with cold cuts, however it needed more hot peppers/oil. Also I asked for sharp provolone and they wouldn't let me substitute it for the sandwich.
Loved getting my cold cuts here too bad Bobby retired
Order the arancini :)
Get one of the older guys to make your sandwich - they are the masters.
Fantastic over stuffed sandwiches, love the Italian combo
Most delicious sandwich I had in NY. Order the Italian Combo. It's delicious and serves two easily.
Heralded as the oldest cheese store in the U.S., Alleva specializes in ricotta and mozzarella.
his is one of the oldest authentic NYC Italian deli’s - We get a sub here every many months or so :) - salami, hot sopressata, fresh mozz, lettuce, oil, vinegar
Don't miss! Huge sandwiches with good prices and awesome produtcs.
If you can't decide, give the Sopressata a try. Only choice to make: sweet or spicy!
The Italian Combo is an amazing sandwich - also get some rice balls heated up
A real old Italian deli. Great Chicken parm.
Italian specialty goods, imported cheese, and some hefty sandwiches. Aim for ones with homemade mozzarella or ricotta.
Check out the panini's
I like the meatball sandwich here, but they don't have it everyday. You really can't go wrong with any of their other heroes though. Turkey/Swiss works great.
DIY porchetta sandwich.
the most authentic, stupendous prosciutto this side of the atlantic. order half a pound (*thinly* sliced) and eat it from the paper package while walking down the street.
Sandwiches are nearly as big as Parisi's but with fresher meats. So good! Plus, super friendly staff.
Italian Combo was the best thing I ate in the city!
#1 Italian combo. Best cold cut sandwich for lunch in town.
Love love love this place. One of the few remnants of old Little Italy. Excellent mozzarella, soppressata, prosciutto, etc. Really nice people, too. Only caveat - the olives are only OK.
Prosciutto, roasted red peppers, and mozzarella on a hero. If you didn't order this, you screwed up.
Sandwiches do big I eat half for lunch and half for my 4pm snack. Try San Danielle prosciutto + mozzarella. And then grab some alla Calce olives.
Established 1892. Continuously family owned. Oldest Little Italy cheese shop. Original tiled walls and tin ceiling. Painted glass signs advertising "Burro e Uova" and "Latticini di Nostra Produzione."
I really dont want to share these, but their prosciutto balls are amazing at 3 for two bucks
$10 credit card min. Classic Italian deli.
Get a rice ball and bruschetta. Best I've ever had.
Customize on the combos as you please, they're guidelines. Gigantic too!
Get a prosciutto & mozzarella sandwich and enjoy. It's amazing.
Try the fresh mozarella, prosciutto and Parmesan & prosciutto balls
Since 1892! This place is real and very, very delicious.
Lunch sandwiches are a great value. Go for the prosciutto and mozzarella sandwich, some olive oil on ciabatta bread.
my favorite italian deli.
My queen want hotdogs !
Best bruschetta I ever ate!
One of my favorite lunch spots. $7.75 for a hero that can easily feed 2.
The Italian Combo is the tits.
Best Italian combo sandwiches in all of little Italy!
The pepperoni from Alleva is great! Just like the kind on Lomardi's pizza. Much better than that hormel stuff.
Although the "go-to" in the area is Parisi, there are a few old school spots like Alleva that make great, reasonably priced Italian combo sandwiches and specialties
Best. Sandwiches. Ever.
Get a rice ball, and then eat it out of your hand while you walk to your destination.
my spot for lunch when I'm working from home (rotate between any of their four basic sandwiches)
