Sometimes the original isn't the best. I took my mom here since it was home to the original muffuletta but we were very disappointed. The service is extremely slow when you realize that all of the muffulettas are already made and just sitting behind the...More

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
