    The Dennis is a mega monster of the sandwich worthy for two. All the sandwiches are huge in general and worth every cent. Cash only and expect a line on the warmer days during weekday lunch hours.

    Massive fresh-sliced Italian meat sandwiches, perfect for taking to the nearby park on Lafayette - get The Dennis w/ chicken cutlet, prosciutto, fresh mozz, roasted pepper & basil spread #prayeremoji

    Though you can depend on meatballs and just-fried chicken cutlets always being available, on Fridays there are warm seafood heros like the shrimp parm special, and it really was special. Read more

    If you're looking for a meatball parm that's as Sunday Gravy classic as can be, with rich, bright sauce that highlights the slight sweetness of beef, this baby is the one for you.

    old school Italian sandwiches which are all great. full of cops and firefighters during the lunch rush so come before 1230 or after 2 to avoid the lines.

    Two words: The Dennis - a mouth-watering, perfectly breaded chicken cutlet sandwich with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto. This one will put any other sandwich to shame.

    Great old school Italian bakery with massive, delicious deli sandwiches. Don't miss the peppery lard bread with chunks of cured pork baked into the dough.

    This lard bread's meaty flavor and pronounced pepper bite rank it solidly in the Top 5 of our favorite lard breads in NYC.

    If you really want to treat yourself right. Ask them to make you an egg sandwich using their lard bread, not on menu, around $12 you can probably split it with a friend

    Huge, delicious sandwiches carved to order. My picks are the Dennis or the Italian, but whatever you get, don't forget to ask for a pickle on the side!

    Parisi supplies breads to many of New York’s restaurants, but neighborhood patrons are loyal consumers of their freshly baked rolls, baguettes and loaves.

    Pay $11 for "the Dennis" - chicken cutlet, mozzarella, prosciutto. It weighs about 5 pounds and will last you 2 meals.

    Pretty hectic lunch rush, so going early is a good idea. The Dennis is great! But don't overlook the specials card.

    Rumor has it there's a "Dennis" sandwich here. If so, this is my destiny. Even tho that's kind of a lame destiny.

    Amazing sandwiches. Highly recommend the Dennis, but with roasted peppers instead of tomatoes. Bring your back-up stomach though!

    Huge, delicious sandwiches. Try "The Dennis" - they will at first deny its existence but eventually give in and serve up a beautiful blend of chicken, prosciutto, and mozzarella. Read more

    Go for the Dennis and swap the tomatoes for roasted red peppers. Pencil in a "post meal nap" on your calendar after eating this baby!
