The food is worth the search! You can speak English Italian Spanish or sign. Galaudet University is next store with Hotel rooms for the public. Wine and olive oil tastings are a regular thing. A great example of knowing where to go. Now you do.

The Meatball Sub and Chicken Parmesan subs are on point! I come here regularly and have never been less than extremely satisfied.

This place is nestled into a shady warehouse district just West of Gallaudet University on Morse and 6th st NE (across from Subway). Delicious subs are a hit! Prepare to wait a while for it if you haven't called or faxed it in ahead. But they are worth waiting for. While you are waiting, browse the extensive Italian grocery and... More

I love this place. One of DC's best kept secrets. They have an excellent wine and cheese selection. The wine expert is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. You can grab lunch here too. They make great sandwiches and pasta.

It is quite difficult to find a good Italian market in DC - and this more than fits the bill! It is in the warehouse district around Union Market, but it is only one of the fully functioning stores in the original warehouses. The area is a bit rough around the edges, but once you're inside, the shelves are literally... More

My husband found this on a whim and said it was the best chicken parm sandwich ever. He is very disappointed that we don't live in DC or near DC so he frequent the place. What is also nice about A. Littteri is its selection of wines, oils, etc. It will be a must stop the next time we are... More

I've never gotten the sandwiches at A. Litteri, so I can't speak to that. What I do go for is the amazing selection of wine, jarred goods like roasted tomatoes, olives, pickled anything, and olive oil. This place is a hidden gem, packed to the brim from wall to wall with amazing finds. Wine ranges from the very affordable to... More

Great wine selection! Great pasta and olive oil selection and really good sandwiches, but if you are expecting Arthur Avenue or Little Italy... "Fogetaboutit" it isn't that! But it beats the so-called Italian Store in Arlington HANDS DOWN!

This is the place to get your wines, pastas, olive oils, and deli products. It's not a sit-down place. Take your amazing sandwich and eat it anywhere. I'm partial to the chicken or eggplant parmesan.
