Phenominal sandwich in Garden City

I work in Garden City and was alerted by a colleague to the Newsday piece yesterday about great sandwiches on LI. We saw they mentioned La Bottega, 147 Nassau Blvd in Garden City South, and its Pascoli sandwich, which is slowly roasted suckling pig with fresh mozzarella, broccoli rabe and spicy red peppers on round rustic bread. Well, we went for lunch today and picked it up. Simply put, phenomenal. I have been to many spots around the city and country, and tried many great sandwiches, but this one definitely goes down as one of the best. Great bread that perfectly soaks up the juices from the meat, perfect balance of heat, meat was incredible big chunks and some great fat. I can't say enough about it. The menu is great just to read. A hard core authentic Italian place with about 60 sandwiches, including 5 different suckling pig ones. This place is special. It was jamming when we were there at lunchtime for take out. Only took 10 minutes. A lot of people were calling in and picking up. Go to this place now! So worth traveling to! They have tables in the back to sit down and eat.
