Arthur Ave. Eats

Need some advice. I've never been to this part of the Bronx and would like to check out the area.
Looking for Italian with an emphasis on seafood.
Any suggestions ?

    Hi, John!
    Let us know how your outing goes. I made my first visit to Arthur Ave about 6 mos. ago. We had great time at Dominick's (it was early on Sunday, and the wait wasn't bad, and I LIKED the food), but I've heard better things about Roberto's. Would like to go back.

        I'm a little late getting in on this discussion therefore my apologies to all!

        I love Emilio's shrimp w/light pesto sauce. You can find this delightful restaurant directly across "da' Ave." from the Arthur Ave. entrance to the market. Family owned and family supervised, never had a bad meal there or, for a matter of fact, anywhere in that wonderful "old world" section of town.
