      Sorriso's on 30th Ave. btw 44 and 45st. I think they are the best.

        Sorriso is awesome, not just for fresh Mozz. They also have tons of imported Italian (and Spanish) cheese, homemade soppresata and a ton of prepared food. Highly recommended.

        I have only tried Dave & Tony of those. I like the deli in general but I find the mozzarella very bland. Sprinkling a bit of salt on helps a lot but I don't think it is in the upper echelon of mozzarella. Now I have to try the others.

        There's some fantastic home made mozzarella on Ditmars a couple blocks east of 31st, south side of the street...can't remember what it's called, sorry!
