Any real italian spots in UES

TPerri | Mar 2, 2008 11:59 AM

I just moved to the UES and I've been looking for some italian deli's, pork stores, pastry shops, bread bakeries etc.. I cannot stand these "italian supermarkets" like Agata & Valentina and Citarella... Just as I would not bring my car's transmission to be serviced in a car wash/jiffy lube - I will not buy fresh mozz from a place that makes cookies and bread and has butcher etc... Its just too much - no artisanship!!! And the mozz from A&V was not up to par... I'm looking for a great butcher and maybe a great cheese guy - a pork store etc... Can anyone point me in the right direction - or should I just head downtown or to Brooklyn or Jersey?
