Some townies still call it Mike’s, but no matter what you call it, Ioannoni’s Specialty Sandwiches has come a long way since its start in New Castle’s Shawtown neighborhood. One thing that has never changed: fresh sliced cappicola, salami and provolone on classic Italian subs. (The large is a whopping 20+ inches.) For something really special, try the Paisano of Old World meats like prosciutto and sharp provolone with roasted peppers. Everything from the meatballs to the roasted beef, pork and turkey is homemade. Old school rules. 624 E. Basin Road, New Castle, 322-5000,
