Pisillo is one of the hands-down best Italian sandwich shops in Manhattan, and we endorse making your way over here if you’re anywhere in the vicinity. The Italian news blasting on the TV is a good sign of authenticity, and it’s statistically proven that watching Silvio Berlusconi’s face flash across a screen makes your prosciutto and mozzarella better. The sandwiches are simple, but made with extremely high-quality ingredients. They’re also huge.

Faun is an excellent neighborhood spot in Prospect Heights serving seasonal, Italian-inspired food. Eat pasta on their patio whenever possible.
Caffè Storico is little more than a good bet for dinner in the neighborhood or some pre-gaming before you hit the planetarium. Who wants to get drunk and see a laser show?
Eataly: La Pizza & Pasta
The food at Eataly: La Pizza & Pasta is perfectly decent, even pretty damn good at times. But it's always just so damn crowded.
