Search out this little gem and you won't be sorry. This deli is a favourite of the locals, offering delicious sandwiches that are you none other. If the service rubs you the wrong way consider how busy this place is and that it is a family run business. It's healthy, tasty and comforting. For a quick lunch, order their two... More

I sometimes crave the meat and cheese buns from this place! Everything is fresh and truly excellent. The fresh buns are stuffed full of quality deli meats, cheeses and veggies of your choice. As someone who abhores fast food, but sometimes needs to eat on the go, Il Vecchio's is the perfect alternative. I phone ahead, bring cash and get... More

Everytime I eat one of the 2 meat sandwiches l hear the infomercial voice in my head going how much would you expect to pay for a customized sandwich piled high with your choice of 2 meats, deli cheese and a unique veggie combination including sundried tomatoes and pickled artichokes... Well with other inferior sandwich shops you could expect to... More

This looks so drab from the outside but these are the best sandwiches is town! You should expect there to be a line up - especially around lunch time but I will wait! If you know what you want you can phone in your order and just pick it up - now I love it even more.

Four bucks and a bit of change won't get you much of anything in the Brokanagan where the cost of living dallies with Manhattan and the Ginza District so when you find a place like Il Vecchio's which for many years has been creating enormous and incredibly scrumptious Italian cold meat sandwiches with loads of quality toppings for that relatively...

Stopped by for a sandwich after reading about This place on Tripadvisor and overhearing two locals talking about "getting a Vecchio's". Bread super fresh, pick your meats, pick your cheese and veggies. Delicious. Best sandwich I've had in months. Street unimpressive and quiet, but push open the door and they're always doing a steady business. Limited seating inside. A great... More

Great little gem, hidden downtown right across the bus station. Yes it's a deli. So don't expect a restaurant setting with excellent customer service. The place appears to be packed both times we went there. Yes you even have to wait to get your sandwich. Bring cash because that's all they take. The process is simple, they ask who the... More

Sandwiches are great...mmmm so is the tirimisu, but if it wasn't for the food I would not come back again as the staff hired to work here are in need of some serious customer service remedial school. Don't expect a cheery or happy face from the girls working behind the counter....expect that their favorite pet just died. It is like... More
