    AMAZING. The white pizza, cheesesteak (chicken & beef), & deli sandwiches are great. I've never been disappointed. Expect to wait awhile sometimes, as this place gets busy! Well worth the wait though.

    They have pizza slices but don't advertise it. $5 minimum for credit/debit card transactions.

    If you like meat wrapped in meat, get the chef salad

    Closest thing I've come across that compares to Deli's back east. Hot pastrami is delicious!

    Call in your order for both dine-in or take out orders. It gets busy and may take 20+ minutes to put your order in.

    Philippos · March 4, 2011

    Amazingly helpful! Will walk you through a whole recipe and box up all your ingredients for dinner!! Couldn't be more impressed!

    Great small Italian deli with fantastic hot and cold sandwiches. Usually go to get lunch but the store is filled with quality Italian products like Olive Oil, wine, and gelato.

    Il Purista might be the best sandwich I've ever had.

    Be there at 10 when they open or maybe after the lunch rush. It is worth the change in your schedule.

    No matter what sandwich you order make sure to get it on a crusty baguette and it'll be twice as delicious.

    One of the best local Italian places I've had! The gnocchi and side of meatball was delicious and more food than I could finish since you get a side of bread and salad with the whole meal. Delicious!

    The best way to eat on a Sunday night after a weekend of Hockey games is to head here for the eggplant parm sandwich

    Excellent place for a quick lunch. Authentic Italian groceries and fine wines from Spain and regions in Italy. Bottles go from 10- 100 plus$. A perfect place for those who enjoy a true touch of class.

    Order the Calzone. Don't plan on finishing it there... It is huge but delicious. Don't tell me you've been to the best Italian deli without stopping here once.

    I thought I was back on Long Island! A plethora of east coast Italian foods, deli items, pastas, pizza, rib eye cheese steaks, Boars Head lunch meats and so much more. 5/5 stars!
