Billing itself as the "King of Mozzarella," Lioni offers 126 different heros, mostly named after prominent Italian Americans, from Mario Lanza to Guy Lombardo to Robert De Niro. The fresh mozzarella is indeed among the best in Bensonhurst, though other ingredients vary in quality. Our favorite sandwich on a first visit was the Joe Torre: spicy grilled sausages dressed with lettuce, olive oil, oregano, and a shake of black pepper that brilliantly amplifies the burn. Admire the cluttered store interior, which includes such Brooklyn memorabilia as a 1956 obituary to the Dodgers.
