    I don't get it, it's not good, grumpy service. Stick with Parisi

    I always go for the amazing Alyssa sandwich, but this time around, thought the focaccia was too dense. Will probably opt for the standard roll next time.

    Aggressive order process! I got the Pinocchio. They forgot the mozzarella cheese. Maybe check your sandwich before you leave or leave disappointed 😢

    The sandwiches are delicious, but the owner is a Trump supporter and will talk your ear off about politics if given the chance!

    Get the Matthew on white bread. Be prepared to order and pay, or get yelled at!

    The original, tiny Soho storefront opened a slightly larger Midtown location. The cash-only, grab-and-go establishment draws massive lines for its enormous Italian sandwiches. The wait is worth it. Read more

    Alidoro, makers of the city's most delectable sandwiches, have outdone themselves with their latest special: an Italian Cheesesteak. It features sirloin steak, provolone cheese and garlic mushrooms. Read more

    The pinnochio is one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Cash only. Get there early, the line is always long and it's a small staff.

    No nonsense, cash only, but the size and flavor of their sandwiches leaves people coming back for more. And waiting in a sizable line to do so.

    Get here around 11:15 and wait until it opens so that you'll be the first in line. Otherwise, expect to wait a while. Best Italian sandwiches in the city, hands down.

    The bread is the star here. The menu is intimidating, but it's all the same 6 ingredients over and over so just choose your meat, cheese, and spread/veggie.

    Sandwiches are good and simple. One or two meats, one or two vegetables, one cheese, good bread. A bit too expensive for me though, especially given what you could get at Faicco's

    Don't expect to be tucked in at night. Order a sandwich off the list, pay cash, and get out. It's not that hard and you won't regret it.

    The most amazing Italian deli sandwiches! Every sandwich is fantastic with their fresh meats and cheeses. And the bread! Watch out though: when they run out of bread early afternoon, they close!
