Smack in the middle of Little Arabia sits Cortina’s, a family-run Italian marketplace and restaurant that’s been in operation since 1963. The space itself is broken up into two different sections - the deli/market to the left and the pizzeria/restaurant to the right, but if you’re short on time, stick to the deli. That’s where you can get imported pasta, meats, and cheeses for home, on top of ordering fresh-made sandwiches from the deli. If you’re hungry, get the Cortina’s Special with capicola, mortadella, two types of salami, and all the fixings. If you’re really hungry, get the meatball sub.
