THE BRONX - An Italian immigrant who got his start making cheese in the Bronx is reflecting on his experience in the U.S. during the city's Immigrant Heritage Week.

The owner of the store he first began working at in 1986, Orazio Carciotto, started out knowing nothing about mozzarella.

Carciotto is just one of hundreds of thousands of immigrants who has come to New York City. He got his start working at Casa Della Mozzarella on E. 187th in the heart of Little Italy.

"I missed my family because I came here for love. My wife was from New York City. I left everybody in Italy. In the beginning of the year, it was really tough," Carciotto says.
