A new Italian Restaurant opened at 40-39 82nd Street called Limoncello. It's around the corner from the Movie Theatre. I'm told the owner is a former employee of Armondo's. I was in the area Thursday at 12:30 and picked up a Soppressata Focaccia for $5.00 which I thought was a bargain. It wasn't. When I got home the bread was stale and inside were two slices of cheap deli type salami with a thin small slice of mozzarella and some soggy lettuce. I took one bite and threw it out. What made me think that I could get a quality Soppressata sandwich for $5.00. The menu is an Armondo menu & Armondo prices. They're serving sandwiches at lunch to attract employees from Elmhurst General Hospital. I live midway between Limoncello & Trieste. If I'm going to pay the prices that Limoncello charges, I'll dine at an authentic Italian restaurant like Trieste which is owned by Italians who serve quality Italian Cuisine.
