A taste of Italy is right here in Plainville, MA. Anthony's North End Deli is genuine Italian-style deli without having to trek all the way into Boston.
Once you walk into the deli you'll notice all sorts of Italian products: olive oils, candies, sauces. and pastas all for sale. It's laid out just like a neighborhood market and is almost like stepping back into the 1950's. However, at the sandwich counter is where the real drooling will begin. The square Sicilian-style pizza is mouth-watering and the list of deli meats and cheeses go on and on. For a sampling of Sicily, try a sub with prosciutto, sopressata, mortadella, hot capicola, and provolone. If you want good comfort food, try any of their pasta dishes. Stuffed shells, eggplant parmesan, baked ziti, and lasagna are all available and so good, it's criminal. However, the Phantom Gourmet recommends the overstuffed calzones above all else.
Catering is available for special events. They will even provide an assortment of desserts directly from the North End in Boston.
