Yes, on Long Island, there is a deli on every street. Well, it sure seems like it. But there’s a big difference between your run-of-the-mill coffee-and-smokes deli and the very best delicatessen.

But don’t be misled—Iavarone Bros. retains all the intimacy, sights, aromas and quality freshness of an Italian open-air marketplace. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
