Heart of the Italian Market
If you've never had any Paesano's sandwich, you are not living life.
Another favorite: Daddy Wad marries mortadella with pistachios, genoa salami, sopressata, capicola, prosciutto and sharp provolone with arugula, tomatoes, onions and sweet and hot peppers.
Order the Paesano, the Arista, or the Bolognese. Take out-of-towners here to blow their minds. [Eater 38 Member]
Paesano’s sandwich shop is decidedly new-school thanks to chef Peter McNamara’s flourish: The Tuna Italiana throws herb-cheddar spread, hard-cooked egg, roasted tomatoes, arugula & chips into the mix.
They take cash only. Be prepared.
The Gustaio is a sandwich to build a dream on.
Think Slow Food in Italian Nonna’s kitchen with loud Irish roots...Crazy-delicious combos like the pulled roast suckling pig with broccoli rabe, Italian longhots and sharp provolone.
Unbelievably good! Try the lamb sausage, cherry, fennel, gargonzola sandwich and have your mind blown
Anthony Bourdain stopped by Paesano's while in Philadelphia filming for his show The Layover. He and his crew tried four sandwiches: The Liveracce, the Gustaio, the Arista, and the Paesano.
I would like to attempt to try every sandwich on the menu. So good!
Get in right now! Skips Pat's, Geno's, Jim's and other tourist traps.
The Bolognese, which layers fried lasagna with red sauce, smoked mozzarella, roasted peppers, sharp provolone, and a sunny-side-up egg, will make you forget all about those touristy cheesesteaks.
Go for the roasted suckling pig, provolone, and broccoli rabe in the "Arista". For an Italian cold-cut, go for the "Daddy Wad," packed with mortadella, salami, sopresatta, cappacolla and prosciutto.
Don't ask for ketchup...unless you want to shame yourself.
Favorite hoagie in town. Don't even bother anywhere else.
The Arista- "whole roast suckling pig with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone!. Need I say more?
Oh God. Deliciousness. Get anything. You'll love it.
These are honestly some of the best sandwiches in town. And this is a sandwich town.
Two words. Meatloaf Parm. Try it
Get the Paesano Sandwich. I'm super Italian trust me.
1of2 Try one of Peter McAndrews’ famous sandwiches. Arista, Paesano, Gustaio. Their potatoes are roasted in duck fat and are smothered in provolone cheese. OMG.

Get the Giardina - for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike
Awesome pork and broc rabe
Diavlo is delicious just wish it was spicier!
don't get cute. get the Paesano. eat something healthy tomorrow.
Best Gluten free Hoagie by far! Try the Tuna Italiano no cheese. 👌
Italian market birthday!!
The most epic sandwiches ever. Like ever. My favorite is the Bolognese, a fried lasagna (yes this is real) sandwich. Also check out the Paesano, the Arista, the Daddy Wad, and the veggie sandwiches.
You could easily split one of these enormous filling sandwiches...but why? Get the Paesano.
Best sandwiches in the world, seriously.
The liveracce sandwich is so damn good. You'll be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't.
Nothing on the liverrace sounds like it goes together until you taste it. Possibly the best sandwich I've ever eaten.
Pork sandwich was dynamite. Brisket pretty good too, would benefit from a thicker cut. Mmmmm
These sandwiches put the cheesesteak to shame. Get the Arista with roast suckling pig and wash it down with a root beer.
Go for the meatloaf parm
RC Cola on tap. Instant classic. Get the Liveracce or the classic Paesano. Seriously impressive.
One the best sandwich shops in the Italian market in south Philly. There crispy meatloaf Parmesan sandwich is out of this world.
Pretty good, but make sure you've tried Pat's first!
They take credit cards now w/ a $20 min and + $0.25/sandwich
Try the daily specials. Just had one--Pasticcio. Check me out on Foodspotting for details.
