    God, the sandwiches are divine.

    Try the homemade gnocchi or pasta! It makes a great dinner. The olive tapenade is one of the best samples, so make sure not to miss it.

    If you need fresh herbs, go ask someone at the pasta counter and they'll get some from the kitchen!

    The fresh pasta is a steal, and the little grocer has hard to find goodies! This place is wonderful.

    Great deli meats and breads

    Amazing FRESH pasta. I love the proscuitto ravioli!!

    Kate Gwilt · May 19, 2015
  • Stephen B.

    Pretty much everything is delicious here, so be careful or you'll end up with double what you intended. Don't forget about the frozen garlic bread ready for baking - cheap, easy, and amazing.

    Complete list of things I've had here that I didn't like:

    Adam Sigel · May 13, 2015
  • Spencer S.

    so so so good. my favorite sandwiches are chicken # 1 & chicken pesto. get either in focaccia and grilled.

    You will spend all your money on pasta and cheeses. And then you'll be a rich man, indeed. Five plates of pasta out of five 🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝.

    EVERY. SINGLE. THING. This place actually is heaven.

    The best sandwiches, if you get there in time!

    Paul Nederhoed · January 9, 2015

    Interesting food items you won't find in a grocery store

    Kevin M · January 4, 2015
  • Keri G.

    You can't go wrong with any of the freshly made ravioli, but I'm partial to the goat cheese and caramelized leek filling.

    Keri Garel · December 20, 2014
  • Hilario C.

    Sicilian sandwich, grilled, on pane rustico. So good.

    Hilario Coimbra · December 3, 2014
  • Kevin M.

    Fresh pasta sauces and hand made ravioli! Not bad for some quick groceries too.

    Kevin M · November 11, 2014
  • Alex D.

    Everything here is mind-blowing, but especially the sandwiches.

    Alex Dobyan · November 1, 2014

    Everything is good here! Lemon basil pasta for tonight...yum

    I love everything about this place, from the numerous fresh pastas and sauces (the roasted tomato cream sauce is slammin'), to the fantastic sandwiches.

    Ben · October 25, 2014
  • Andrew A.

    Everything is good here! Try the grilled flank sandwich in a ciabatta roll.

    Andrew A. · September 20, 2014
  • Christina V.

    Pasta, sandwiches and other prepared foods.

    Christina Varrasso · September 11, 2014
  • Nick U.

    Try any of the sandwiches with pesto, it makes the bread go from 9/10 to 10/10. I suggest the sun-dried tomato turkey or the straight up pesto chicken, both were great

    Nick Usoff · September 10, 2014
  • Kyle S.

    French Ham, get the French Ham

    Kyle Seaman · August 30, 2014

    Slightly overrated but pretty tasty sandwiches here. Everything is fresh as well.

    Jeremy Krantz · August 28, 2014
  • emily c.

    avocado BLT and chicken #2 are my go-tos here. you can also order their huge muffaletta sandwich by the pound. everything is perfection here except sometimes the workers can be assholes.

    emily chen · August 24, 2014
  • Marcus L.

    Sandwiches are worth the wait. Too pricey as a grocery option but perfect for delicious, unique prepared foods.

    Marcus LaBrecque · August 23, 2014

    Smoky-spicy turkey on ciabatta roll, Dry cucumber soda.

    Fresh fish on Thursdays and Fridays

    The artichoke sandwich was to die for ! Best sandwich I have had in Boston 💗

    Shira Sternberg · November 19, 2013
  • Kevin M.

    They stop serving sandwiches 30 minutes before they close!

    Kevin M · September 13, 2013
  • Kevin D.

    Definitely not an Italian restaurant.

    Kevin Doyle · August 24, 2013
  • Lara V.

    They have the best sandwiches I ever tried!

    Lara Vujović · August 24, 2013

    They can help you pick out the perfect bottle of wine!

    Kevin Konikowski · July 5, 2013
  • Joseph T.

    There's a hidden very tiny restroom in the back

    Joseph Thornton · May 29, 2013
  • Nathaniel H.

    The caprese on focaccia or the avocado BLT with chicken on ciabatta. Grill grill grilled. Pair with a spindrift for a refreshing treat.

    Nathaniel Hajian · May 4, 2013
  • Kee H.

    Grilled avocado BLT on ciabatta. Can't be beat.

    Kee Hinckley · April 4, 2013

    Take a cooking class with Jason! Great teacher and delicious food

    You can't make a bad choice. Pricey but worth it. Staff is the nicest in Boston—inexplicable considering their volume.

    Emily · July 30, 2012
  • Speedy G.

    This is a great place! (no, I've never been here)

    Speedy Gonzalez · June 11, 2012

    Indoor and outdoor seating available. Also available, a staff-tested hangover cure: the Brazillian Hangover Helper sandwich (mortadella, provolone picante, red onion, dill pickle, hot peppers, mayo). Read more

  • Shannon V.

    Best grilled sandwiches I've ever had. I usually go for the Smokey Spicy Turkey on Ciabatta or the Caprese with Prosciutto on Focaccia. BUT--everything is delicious, can't go wrong!

    Shannon Vossler · April 19, 2012
  • Connor F.

    What would Davis Square be without Dave's? I've never been disappointed with anything here.

    Connor Ferguson · February 18, 2012
  • Dee P.

    Awesome fresh pasta and wine, but, contrary to the special, they do NOT take amex!

    Dee Phair · December 30, 2011
  • Gretchen B.

    don't overlook Batch ice cream from JP - salted caramel] might just transform you ;)

    Gretchen Bartlett · December 16, 2011
  • laura k.

    prosciutto and fig grilled on a baguette will change your life.
