“Better than the one in Manhattan!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is the Belmont from A BRONX TALE. Right near Fordam University. It's only a few stops northbound from Grand Central Station on Metro-North. Cost is $6.25 each way off-peak or you can save on a weekend pass. There are several excellent restaurants on & off Arthur Ave. When leaving Metro-North station, you just cross the street and walk a few blocks to Arthur Ave. You will see a sign for ARTHUR AVE market. Turn right & you will start seeing places withing a couple blocks. In fact, Michaelangelos Brick Over Pizzeria will be on your right. This was my favorite place that I have tried. As you keep walking you will see 2 places that sell fresh raw clams & oysters. Randazzos is my favorite, but they are closed on Sundays. Mario's was the scene of the cop killer scene in THE GODFATHER & some Sopranos scenes were filmed here. This place is worth trying as well. This is not the type of area you just visit once! The Arthur Ave market can take up at least an hour of your time & plenty of money too. My favorite place for pastries is Artusos. This is a few blocks off Arthur Ave on East 187th St., but worth the detour. There is parking around Arthur Ave. which is good because if you do not have a car, you are limited on how much shopping you can do. This area is nothing like Manhattan in terms of trying to find parking or the cost of.

“Arthur Avenue”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Arthur Avenue will always be Little Italy in the Bronx. Best place for Italian Foods per the shops and the restaurants. A must see, but since it's off the bitten path, makes it hard to visit. What a shame. It's the best.

“The "Real" Little Italy”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Forget Manhattan. The last US census showed ZERO Italians living in that zip code. Arthur Avenue in the Bronx in New York's real Little Italy. It not be so twenty years from now, but take advantage of it now. Too many great restaurants to list. You pretty much cannot go wrong with any of them. Grocery shopping is a steal. Prices are half of other parts of New York and the quality and selection are wonderful.
