Pisillo is one of the hands-down best Italian sandwich shops in Manhattan, and we endorse making your way over here if you’re anywhere in the vicinity. The Italian news blasting on the TV is a good sign of authenticity, and it’s statistically proven that watching Silvio Berlusconi’s face flash across a screen makes your prosciutto and mozzarella better. The sandwiches are simple, but made with extremely high-quality ingredients. They’re also huge.
