Grab These 4 Picnic Foods From Your Local Italian Restaurant, Bronx, New York

If you’re wondering what to bring on a summer picnic, why not get takeout from an Italian restaurant in your neighborhood? Pizzas and sandwiches are delicious and easy to transport and eat, while salads are a refreshing choice on a hot day. If you’re planning a group outing and want a simple way to satisfy everyone, here are a handful of classic dishes that make for perfect outdoor meals.

Picnic Treats to Order From an Italian Restaurant

1. Appetizers

Kick off your picnic with friends and family with a full spread of starters. Garlic bread, mozzarella sticks, and chicken fingers are filling and popular items that are fun to share and don’t require silverware to enjoy. Bring a variety of dipping sauces for added flavor.

2. Salads

Salads are light and healthy options for hot days, especially arugula varieties dressed with fresh pears or mandarin oranges. For a more substantial and filling selection, choose an antipasto with Italian meats, cheeses, and vegetables. 

3. Pizzas

4. Sandwiches

Italian subs and heroes can be made to please any palate, and they are simple to throw in a picnic basket. Order a few sandwiches from a neighborhood Italian restaurant, choosing from different varieties like meatball, eggplant, and shrimp parmigiana. Cut them into quarters as a fun sharing option.
