Favorite Italian on Avenue U?

Manhattan resident looking to eat authentic Italian on Avenue U. Restaurant, deli, catering hall, anything worth the trip to Avenue U.

  1. Go down a little bit to Avenue X--off Ocean Avenue there is a restaurant named Anthony's. It's an amazing little place. Avenue U is like another smaller version of Sunset Park's Chinatown.

    1. avenue u's westside is a tightknit italian nabe, i should kno i live there:) for great red sauce neopolitan cooking try fiorentino's, for sicilian soul food you have joe's of avenue u foccaceria palermitana, you'll feel like your in palermo with probably the best panelle in the boro. for good pork store/ deli try the original bari pork store and meats supreme, a little known gem is michelino's on west 6th and ave t, great hero's. buon appetito
