Wow these sandwiches are he best every, they were mouth watering tasty. Everyone around us said the same and I had to get on trip advisor and tell the world. Thank you! We came here three days in a row and tried so many.... Cannot wait for the next bite!

Went there for a sandwich after a city tour, just perfect. Everything is fresh and prepared as ordered. The mozzarella is homemade and tasted delicious.

This little deli was just 40 meters from my hotel, and was perfect for a rainy day stop. The derli opens into the daily street market. And the owner/artist stands outside to handle the throngs waiting for a sandwich. Well worth the wait--an incredible creation of beautiful produce, 3-4 different cheeses (both fresh and aged) hand sliced and grated over... More

We visited this place on a couple of occasions during our holiday and on both occasions it was pleasure. You get to sample lots of delicious food while just stood in the queue! We asked the owner to make us a sandwich with local sicilian food and on each occasion we weren't disappointed. Magnificent!

Our sandwich maker's daughter says he makes the best sandwich in all Italy! That's a BIG call. He certainly put on the best show at the markets in Ortigia and our 4 Euro masterpiece fed two hungry Aussies.

Cloudy day meant a day trip to town, this was a great find! Plate of mixed meats and veg, washed down with a cold beer and house red, strong recommend!

On our way back to the car from Ortygia, we came across a crowd of people outside this deli sandwich shop, They were all queuing for what must be the best sandwich we have ever eaten. You can choose from a variety of salamis, parma ham, and cheeses as well as cannoli for dessert to name but a few. Get... More

Delicious baguette filled with local cheeses, tomatoes; sundried and fresh, prosciutto and salami. Really good. Literally we had 4 cheeses in one mouthful. The sandwichier did not speak english but had a great entertaining manner and it therefore did not matter.

This is by far the best sandwich I have ever eaten and one of the best restaurants- the food, the passion and the show make it a must visit. I would travel all the way to Syracuse again just for this experience
