Putting magnificent in your name might suggest hubris, but the panini at this casual Bensonhurst Italian spot easily lives up to its self-designation. The bread comes from the shop down the street, where windows are filled with bronzed round loaves. The hero bread is rustic, with chewy insides, firm crusts, and loads of character. A small oven in back heats the sandwiches, allowing fresh mozzarella to suffuse the bread’s pores. Maroon tile on the back wall sets a mood for Italian meats, like a supple prosciutto, best paired with grilled eggplant and dressed with garlic and balsamic. There are also Italian-American classics like sausage and peppers, oversized meatballs, and golden-breaded chicken parmigianas finished with a layer of subtle red sauce. The small, square main room is warmed by a long steam table filled with daily pasta specials, fresh salads, and rotating specialties like lasagna and fried calamari. Rice balls come in jumbo form, stuffed with ground beef, peas, and fresh mozzarella. Waiter service accommodates a local crowd, with additional seating in the gigantic enclosed back garden. Those seeking dessert for the road can stop in at nearby Royal Crown Paneantico, a related bakery specializing in pastries and Italian cookies.
