A trip to Alleva Dairy will now be on my "to do" list each time I visit New York.  As with Lombardi's for pizza, Alleva will now be my place to eat an Italian Deli Sandwich.  The Italian Sandwich here is $8.50 and is probably worth much more.  If I could get this sandwich in Hawaii, I would be eating here every week.  This place is a gem.  A feast for the eyes and nose.  The smell of fresh bread, cheese and meats is awesome.  The feel of this place takes you back in time and I mean way back.  The Alleva Dairy was opened in 1892 and is still family owned.  We were served by one of the younger family members who carved each piece of meat and the cheese for my sandwich by hand off of large blocks.  He put together the sandwich like an orchestra leader.  Flawless motion from cutting the meats to adding the Roasted Red Peppers and Italian Dressing.  The result was one of the best Italian Sandwiches I have ever eaten.  Loved the bread, the meats, cheese and peppers.  What really made it work was the Italian Dressing.  Really delicious.
