Neighborhood: Belmont, Bronx
Address: 2357 Arthur Ave.

In walking distance from Fordham University, this spot is a true gem on Arthur Avenue, the Little Italy section of the Bronx. Upscale yet casual, this establishment is airy and brightly lit. The vaulted ceiling and painted mural gives you the sense that you're eating in a small Naples restaurant. The stunning wood burning oven comes directly from the owner's town, Salerno, Italy. Everyday, they purchase fresh mozzarella from Casa della Mozzarella. They only use tomatoes from the San Marzano region. The Diavola is the must try here; the crust is chewy and crispy all in one bite. The sauce, fresh mozzarella, basil and sopressata are magnifico!
