Savor The Bronx’s Little Italy—NYC’s Real Little Italy 


Wandering through the streets of Belmont on Arthur Avenue and side streets, you soon realize what a special place this is. 

The most authentic Little Italy in New York City, Arthur Ave, despite changing demographics, still offers a unique slice of Italian tradition and history. 

From bakeries, to cheese shops, and butcher shops to freshly made pasta, there’s really nothing quite like it. 

Albanian restaurants, cafes and other businesses have opened up shop alongside Latin American, particularly Mexican, and all coexist quite well if you ask me. 

It attracts shoppers from across the region who are in search of the finest quality Italian ingredients both imported and made right here in our borough of The Bronx. 

What are your fondest memories of Arthur Ave?
