East Village Shops - Russo's Italian Food Store
Russo's fresh mozarella and pasta store is located in the East Village off First Avenue. The East Village was once an Italian and Jewish destination point for immigrants coming to the new world and Russo's is one of the vestiges of that past.
One can find fresh mozarella which they make and fresh made pasta, along with an assortment of other generally Italian food stuffs such as olive oil, and other imported Italain foods.

Veniero's is one of the oldest Italian pastry shops in New York City and for that matter the entire nation. They can be found not far from Russo's just off First Avenue in what once used to be an Italian enclave of the East Village neighborhood.
They continue to make fresh Italian pastries and canoli.
