  1. not in queens, but on arthur ave bronx, madonnia brothers bakery does it. across the street from domminick's restaurant ciao

    1. I've purchased proscuitto bread on Queens at the bakery on Ditmars Blvd. and 45th Street. I don't remember the name of the bakery, I'm not sure I ever knew it.

      They also make olive bread.

      1. In Whitestone there's a good fruit & vegie place with an Italian deli and grocery. They usually carry prosciutto bread, but I have no idea where it's actually baked. Still fresh though.

        Strawberry Farms @ 150 St & 24 Ave/Willets Point Blvd.

          while i haven't been there all that often since moving out of astoria a few years back, Island Bakery, on Broadway around 43rd street, did a really good lard bread on Saturdays only. I'd usually tear into the loaf seconds after leaving the place, to get the most out of the warm gooiness....

          1. In addition to the aforementioned Island Bakery, try D&F Deli on Broadway tween 35th and 36th Sts. They make a delish lard bread.

            1. By far the best prosciutto bread I've ever had is from Furci's on 101st Ave in Ozone Park. In fact, on the weekend they also make a wonderful cherry pepper version. But go by lunchtime the latest so as not to get shut out.

                Up-date new phone number is 718-849-6661.

                1. re: Joe D.

                  Had the prosciutto and cherry pepper bread today from Furci and it is GREAT!

                2. A fairly new (about 1 yr) bakery on Utopia Parkway around 19-20th Avenues called Pane d Italia has wonderful prosciutto bread. Sorry I don't know the exact address. It's in the Whitestone-Clearview area.

                  1. Take Joe ds advice the absolute best prochuto bread is on 101 avenue at Furci, try the one with pepers even better.

                      Greeting from lovely Ozone Park. Yep, Furci's bread is good. Ragtime in Howard Beach has lard bread rolls on Fridays.

                    2. In Astoria, try Rose & Joe's Bakery on 31st Street/Ditmars Blvd

                      In Corona, don't know exact address, but there's a salumeria & bakery right near the Parkside Restaurant & Corona Ice King. that bakery had delish lard bread.

                        is that the one attached to mamas? that whole complex is the same family. I think that's the sister's shop.

                        1. re: LHT

                          The salumeria closed a while ago. The Parkside restaurant has prosciutto bread in their bread basket.

                        2. Paneorama, 95-20 Jamaica Avenue, Woodhaven (718) 805-2525.

                          I just had some of their prosciutto bread for breakfast...
