You must be kidding! I expect to find such spot in New York or London, not certainly in a little italian province. If they were american they'd already have at least 1.000 franchises! The best ever sandwich I've ever tasted in my life! Just incredible, impossible to tell, go and try!

Have been there cause it was the only place with a TV showing EuroCup 2012. They serve Italian sandwiches but honestly it is nothing special, paid round about 5,00 € for a sandwich but taste was not really kicking me. Drinks served as well, beer is more expensive than in a bar. Lady who serves is more interested in Facebook... More

This sandwich bar has given me the best sandwiches ever since my childhood and holds a special place in the heart of every Varese citizen! Their "Palmito" sandwich is even listed in a book about the 99 things that you should do or try in Varese at least once in your life... Great! Careful to the opening times though as... More

Something different from the day in and day out things you usually eat. If you don't like anything on the menu, they make it your way.
