This has become one of our favorite lunch spots in the Annapolis area; it is always busy at lunchtime and many do take out. We particularly enjoy their daily pasta specials. We started with the vegetable crab soup; this is the best Chesapeake vegetable crab soup that we have had (in Annapolis this is saying something!), although my spouse would... More

I stopped by for lunch and had a pasta dish with sausage and broccoli. Sausage was spicy hot and pasta was dry. Overall dish was good. My guest had the chicken. It appeared as if it was previously frozen. Nice cozy atmosphere. They had some specialty items for sale in the wine store. I would eat there again. Parking is... More

During our recent trip to Annapolis, my wife and.I tried Giolitti,s Being Italian American and used to the many great delis in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens like Iavorone's and Corona Deli we found this place far below standard. Many of the specialties are from commercial vendors and not made on site. they did acknowledge they made their own mozzarella, I... More

We love their Tuscan bread but had previously been disappointed by 'just ordinary' sandwiches. On the basis of the excellent reviews, we tried again but this time decided to 'order Italian'. What a difference. My wife had the meat ball sub which was wonderful. I had the special of the day: rigatoni Bolynese, their homemade sausage in a lovely tomato... More

This is my second review of Giolitti's. The first review was after I discovered it was a great place for lunch, or picking up food from their refrigerator/freezer section. They close at 7 pm, except for Sunday, when they close at 4. Since then, I discovered their monthly wine dinner, which occurs at 7 pm the first Friday of the... More

I work in the area and this place is great. We call in our order and they have it ready and waiting for us to pick it up. Which is great when you only have 30 minutes for lunch break. Sandwiches are very fresh and tasty!

Recently discovered this place while looking for a lunch spot in Annapolis. The Italian subs and paninis are outstanding. High quality meats and cheeses, fresh breads and outstanding sides. Great wine selection as well. Prices are very reasonable. Can't wait to go back.

Giolitti is one of my guilty pleasures for Italian food to bring home. The portions are huge and absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the lasagne. The home made deserts are truly decadent - especially the tiramisu. The wine selections are incredible - with an entire wall to choose from. Highly recommend to dine in or take away.

The atmosphere is typical deli but I really like the service. Everyone is very friendly and happy to serve you. The food is good and very reasonably priced. But be sure to check out their wines for sale. This is an undiscovered gem--great prices. And there is always someone to assist with selections. You can be sure they have tasted... More
