Fresh Mozzarella at ALLEVA DAIRYAlleva Dairy is one of the city’s gems. Among the touristy red sauce joints in Little Italy, the authentic Italian shop has been making fresh mozzarella daily since 1892. The large cheeseballs are as clean, fresh, and buttery as anything you can expect to sink your teeth into. Wrapped around a salty piece of prosciutto, or on a piece of toast with sundired tomatoes, this cheese is absolute perfection. Price: $7.99/pound
