  • Part one foodtour by Soho, Chinatown and little we were here italy. For us there was cheese and salami both was really very tasty. It was also hot meals to the offered to take. The store is there in the sixth generation and will be the oldest of its kind in America. Accordingly, the store is also set up what should be one but not scare because it is really tasty.

  • 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
