Best anti-pasti on Long Island...

I'm craving REAL Antipasti. Who's does it best on Long Island? Nothing canned, and not a pile of grilled zucchini in January, please. Whattcha' got?...

    Razanno's in Glen Cove.
    Trust me.
    If by REAL you mean top notch imported proscioutto, extra sharp provolone and things of the like, it's worth the trip from wherever you are.

      You did not specify what part of the Island your looking for. My suggestion on the South Shore would be Iavarone Bros. I go to the Wantagh location which has it all.

        Is this place Razanno's in Glen Cove still open? I saw that it was closed on the internet, but then I see posts dated after the article--was in this area today, but couldn't remember the address or exact name...so I couldn't check it out..but would like to next time.

          I was just there a couple of months ago, it's way up by North Shore Hospital in Glen Cove, just past where you would turn to go to the hospital (shurch on corner?), a couple of blocks farther on the left side. Looked like they had been there forever and weren't going anywhere soon. Even if they were, it would take them a couple of months to pack everything up for sure.

          Thanx guys! I'm on the North Shore but I intend to try all of these places. I really crave this stuff when it's very hot or very cold. Nothings better to me than speck, pecorino, crusty bread and a glass of Amarone with the wind howling outside. Anything in the Huntington Area?

            There's an Iavarone Bros on Jericho Tpke in Huntington as well. Also, Fairway in Plainview is pretty close. You could drop in and put together your own platter of assorted Italian meats/cheeses and veg.

            If you are ever in the Willison Park/Albertson area you can get great things at both Ciriello's in Willis Ave. in Williston Park, and the place that used to be D'Urso's, sorry I don't know the new name, but same thing, which is on the corner of Willis Ave and IU Willets Road.
