Fabio Casella and his brother, Ciro, the owners of this snug, 20-seat café, also run the terrific, typically packed San Matteo pizzeria up the block. But Il Salumaio is no holding pen for Margherita and marinara eaters. Get the meatballs and the arancini, and the paccheri all’amatriciana. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, get the Arthur Avenue (ham, salami, mortadella, provolone) and save yourself a trip to the Bronx.
