    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.

    Great Sandwicherie! Try the new lasagna-and-fried-egg sandwich, the Bolognese. Read more

    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.

    The Bolognese Sandwich is a must try. The homemade lasagna is battered and fried—fried!—then topped with all of the above. And an egg, if you’re really brave. Read more

    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.

    More than just sandwiches here.. try the Tuscan Tony hot dogSopressata wrapped all-beef dog with Bolognese, sharp provolone and Italian long hots. Read more · July 2, 2014

    The United States has the best sandwiches of any country. Philly has the best sandwiches in the country. Paesanos has the best sandwiches in Philly. Ergo Paesanos has the best sandwiches in the world.

    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.

    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?

    These are honestly some of the best sandwiches in town. And this is a sandwich town.

    Two words. Meatloaf Parm. Try it

    Chef McAndrews sandwich spot has become one of the biggest destination spots for food tourists. We love the Bolognese, a piece of lasagna and a fried egg on a Sarcone's seeded roll. Read more

    Get the Paesano Sandwich. I'm super Italian trust me.

    Amazing sandwiches with really unique ingredient combos. The Gustaio with home-made lamb sausage and red sun-dried cherries on mint crispy flatbread was phenomenal. Can really recommend this place !!

    Small, but really cool place at the Italian market. Their sandwiches are DELICIOUS, and it's definitely a place worth going to. However, despite the information provided, it is CASH ONLY. Be prepared.

  • Richie S.

    The namesake and arista are both incredible. Pretty much can't go wrong here. And there's a pretty good sandwich with fried lasagna in it.

    Richie Stark · December 22, 2014

    The paesano is a thing of beauty- messy but beautiful. Perhaps my favorite sandwich in Philadelphia

    Katrina Croswell · December 2, 2014

    This is where you'll find my favorite roast pork sandwich, the Arista w/ broccoli rabe, long hots and sharp provolone. It may be sacrilege to say, but this beats out DiNic's for me.

    Brendan Rastetter · August 10, 2014
  • Bob B.

    Had the classic Arista. Delicious despite Mets fans in the building.

    Bob Bentz · August 9, 2014
  • Campbell B.

    Get the Paesano or the Bolognese. Both are rad.

    Campbell Bird · August 3, 2014
  • Sarah R.

    They are cash-only now due to increasing price of credit card fees.

    Sarah Rivera · July 24, 2014

    Come hungry. Big sandwiches!

    Best Gluten free Hoagie by far! Try the Tuna Italiano no cheese. 👌

    Italian market birthday!!

    Elisabeth Aulepp · June 26, 2013

    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.

    Amanda Shulman · April 28, 2013
  • Barrett L.

    You could easily split one of these enormous filling sandwiches...but why? Get the Paesano.

    Barrett Lane · April 1, 2013
  • Jeffrey G.

    Best sandwiches in the world, seriously.

    Jeffrey Gray · March 24, 2013
  • Aaron W.

    The liveracce sandwich is so damn good. You'll be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't.

    Aaron Williams · February 22, 2013
  • Steve S.

    Nothing on the liverrace sounds like it goes together until you taste it. Possibly the best sandwich I've ever eaten.

    Steve Scarlata · December 22, 2012
  • Bill M.

    Pork sandwich was dynamite. Brisket pretty good too, would benefit from a thicker cut. Mmmmm

    Bill Martella · November 18, 2012
  • 34th Street Magazine

    These sandwiches put the cheesesteak to shame. Get the Arista with roast suckling pig and wash it down with a root beer.
