    You can order a “small” Italian sandwich for $11, but it's only small in the sense that a Sperm whale is smaller than a Blue whale. Read more

    Disappointed to see the signs on their windows that they've closed this location. I hope they find a new location in Gramercy.

    Brooklyn’s famous Italian sandwich parlor opened up a Murray Hill location with a takeout counter and the same rich chicken parm sandwiches.

    It seems like your ordinary order-at-the-counter deli; however their Sinatra Sandwich makes it extraordinary. The succulent steak pizzaiola melts with the fresh mozzarella and thick, crunchy bread.

    Good quality food for a regular price. Around $10 for a sandwich, that is sufficient for two girls or one man.

    Roast Beef and Mozzarella: Roast beef, lean but incredibly juicy, piled on terrific crusty seeded Italian bread. It's layered with house-made mozzarella and paper-thin slices of fried eggplant.

    Looks like they've added baked ham and roast beef to their arsenal of meats, but the little Nike is my go to sandwich every time.

    Ricotta Special is a hidden gem: Grilled hot italian sausage, broccoli rabe and ricotta cheese, served hot. Ask for a side of Marinara for dipping...Perfection!

    Not really sure what all the hype is about this place. The fried eggplant was not great and too much meat on the sandwich.

    When the kids drive you to want to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, head here instead, eating your way to calm by devouring a sandwich as big as a truck driver's arm.
