Did not disappoint , their sandwiches are really really good, the selections of meat , cheese, veggies were fantastic. Went twice in three days. As a big group (13 of us) , everyone had enjoyed their sandwich of choice. ONE THING,... More

The meats and cheese and sandwiches are absolutely amazing! Unfortunately the staff is rude and are not friendly at all. But once you get it and your on your way and eating your sandwich... it's absolutely amazing! Make sure to go there and get a sandwich to go!!!!

The women who work there always seem like they hate their jobs, and that having to prepare your sandwich is such a hassle. They also often screw up on your sandwich, use old buns, or make the food very sloppily. There is the potential for amazing food, but there is no consistency and the service is truly awful.

The shop is just behind Main Street on Robinson, and is a little take out place that does sandwiches, with a variety of meats and cheeses to top them with. Seems as though it is a favourite with the locals too, as a lot of people in at lunch time seemed to order their "usual". Always a good sign! Staff... More

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.
