  • It is a shop located in little Italy. Atmosphere of this area is the kind of shop I think. I think and ingredients of Italy if you want, but anything you can find. Nearby, public art, some people warm (hot? ) Is a Italian place.

  • The cheese and the atmosphere was great and appealing to me and my wife, but a man that was there was very uncaring and on go when we had questions for him overhearing us like we were not there I think they call him dean Daniel idk that's what the workers was calling him other than that great place
  • Was on a Little Italy tour and stopped here for a taste of their cheese. We got an order of Mozzarella sticks and they were made with fabulous fresh Mozz. cheese. I even saw Tony Danza behind the counter.....was too starstruck to say hello....tried to sneak picture, but blurry :) My daughter got a cannoli from outside and it was also great!
  • If you are in search of fresh Italian cheese, look no further: freshly made mozzarella and/or basket cheese served to you with a smile
  • Cannoli's were terrible. Not the real deal.
  • Mozarella salad is a must, excellent cheese olive and fresh bread selections, good fried REAL mozarella amazing italian classic sandwhich oldest cheese store in north america i believe amazing food don't listen to the haters
