The sequence of events when Paulie makes his Italian
Sub Sandwich follows. 

1) Paulie and Charlie go to the Old Joe’s Dairy where they make fresh MOZZARELLA every day. JOE’S DIARY is the real name of the shop that’s portrayed as JIMMY THE CHEESEMAN’S Shop in The POPE of GREENWICH VILLAGE. Paulie buys some Gabagool  (Capicola) Salami, and fresh Mozzarella Cheese. 

2) Paulie and Charlie go next door at the old ZAMPIERI’S BAKERY where Paulie buys a loaf ofITALIAN BREAD (with Sesame Seeds) for his Sandwich. 

As PAULIE and CHARLIE leave Zappieri’s, we see them walk up Sullivan
Street past SANIT ANTHONY’S of PADUA CHURCH, corner of HOUSTON and SULLIVAN STREET. In the movie, we next find Paulie and Charlie in a PARK on The corner of SPRING and MULBERRY.






PAULIE assembles his Huge Sandwich and tells Charlie about the RACE HORSE he bought into with TOMMY BORTANDO and JIMMY THE CHEESE-MAN

History of Caffe Reggio

Greenwich Village

CAFFE REGGIO

The Movie

MACDOUGAL STREET

GREENWICH VILLAGE



DOMENICO PARISI

The Founding Father of CAFFE REGGIO

Domenico Opened Caffe Reggio in 1927

He had a Barbershop there before, but it was always his dream to open an Italian Caffe. He scraped together the money to buy an Italian Espresso Machine that cost $1,000. A huge some in 1927. He opened the caffe, which was the 1st caffe in America with a coffee machine like they had bacck in Italy, but America never had one, not until Domenico purchased his and brought it to Geenwich Village, New York.

Domenico Parisi was from Reggio Calabria in Calabria, Italy, near Sicily. This is where his caffe gets its name Caffe Reggio from.

From a MEDICI PALACE

FLORENCE

This bench is a Museum Piece, but it is not roped-off as one would think. You can actually sit in it, sipping your Cappuccino, people watching, as you admire a painting from The School of Caravaggio and other antiques and artwork. It’s just magnificent, and only in New York, as they say, could you sit in a Renaissance Bench.

Interview with FABRIZIO CAVALACCI

Owner of Caffe Reggio Since 1972

His Family bought the Caffe in 1955


Fabrizio tells the hsitory of Caffe Reggio. He said that before Dominic Parisi opened the caffe, he had a Barber Shop in the space. A Haircut was 10 Cents and took about 20 minutes to do one. Fabrizio says that Domenico’s customers demanded a cup of Espresso with their haircut. After a while Domenico figured he’d open a caffe, as he could serve many more customers and make better profit than doing haircuts which he could only do 2 or 3 in an hour. And so Caffe Reggio was born in 1927 on Macdougal Street in Greenwich Village, New York.

.
SOPHIA LOREN
 
At the BUTCHER SHOP in NAPLES
 
 
Sophia Lorens character Rosa goes into a local buthcer shop (Macceleria) i Naples and orders meat to make her Ragu Napoletana.
 
She orders : ” I’m in a hurry, give me a kilo of “Annechia (Beef Chuck), a kilo and a half of “Tracchie” (Steak Stewing Meat) and “Locena” cuts and some “Pettola” (Pork Shoulder), two side nerves, and some side and back meat.
 
Butcher says : “What a Fathead you are. Please listen to me. Just take two “Cervalletine Sausages” and you’ll see what a Ragu (Meat Sauce) you get.
 
Lady 1 says ” “My God! Cervalleine Sausages in a Ragu?”
 
Lady 2 says : “And what’s the problem? They’re just fine. Indeed, if togtehr with Anecchia, you just add some Pork Braciole stuffed with raisins, Pignoli Nuts, and Parsley, and you’ll see what exquisiteness .”
 
Sophia Loren ; “it’s just a matter of taste. There are people who like a thicker sauce and those who like a lighter sauce. A classic one.
 
Lady 3: “Yes, but you can’t call it Classic Ragu (Sunday Gravy) without a Spuntatine di Maiale (Pork Spare Rib).
 
Lady 4 says: “No Madame, it depends on the Seasons. In Summer, pork is too heavy.”
 
Lady #2 says:  “Anyway the secret of a good Ragu (Napoletana) is onions.”
 
Sophia Loren : We” that is the basis. The bed of the sauce.”
 
Lady #5 says:  “My mother-in-law, who is famous for her Ragu, taught me that you must first brown the meats without onions.”
 
Sophia Loren :  “Oh come-on Madame! You’re cursing now!”
 
Lady #2 : “Excuse me if I’m interfering, but madame is right. Because if you cook the meats and onions separately, the Ragu (Meat Sauce) is more delicate. More refined.”
 
Sophia Loren says: “So you think that by cooking the meat and onions togther, the Ragu would be more common? I’m sorry madame, but where were you born?”
 
Lady #2 : “What does that have to do with it? I’m from Afragola.”
 
Sophia Loren :  “Ahhhhhh!!!! Donna Cecila (butcher lady), are you done?”
 
Lady # 2 :  “Madame excuse me, but I’d like to know what you meant by that Ahhhh?”
 
Sophia Loren :  “Did I say Ahhhh? No I just said Ah?”
 
Lady # 2 : “No you said Ahhhhh, as if you understood it all. But what have you understood?”
 
Sophia Loren :  “I understood that you come from Afragola.”
 
Pupella Maggio :  “To be born is a circumstance. You’re from Afragola and it’s okay. Do you feel offended by this? That means that you have a guilty conscience.”
 
Lady 2 : “Well no madame, I don’t have guilty conscience.
 
Pupella Maggio : “No, you have it madame. You have it. (screaming)”
 
Woman 2:  “Madam here had a nasty intenet.”
 
Sophia Loren : “It’s you telling me who has the more refined Ragu. It’s like telling us all, that we mus come to Afragola to learn refinements.”
 
Lady # 2 : “Do you see the nasty intent? I’m not wrong!”
 
ALL of the Women it the BUTCHEr SHOP are YELLING at each other.
 
Women Butcher says: “Hey! What’s Going On? This is a shop! It’s a respected Butcher SHop! Now I’m gonna send you all out of here!”
 
The POLICE walk in the Butcher Shop
 
Carabinieri # 1 (Policeman) : “What’s going on? What are they saying?”
 
Carabinieri # 2 : “They’re arguing over how to make a Ragu (Napoletana).”
 
Sophia Loren : “She wants to teach me how to make a Ragu. Come On!”
 
Lady # 2 : “I can make a superb Ragu.”
 
 
All of the Ladies in the Butcher Shop start pushing and shoving each other, and actually hitting each other. This is how passionate Neapolitans can be, when it comes for makinga proper Ragu (Ragu Napoletana or Ragu alla Genovese)
, the recipe, and how to prepare these famed recipes.
