First if all I can't say enough about their catering! I've used Giolittis for my events for years and people always rave and when they find out how reasonable the prices are they just can't believe it. Love what they've done remodeling the dining area. Lunch is always a treat. Lots to choose from in the deli, cheese and bakery... More

This cozy, family owned deli is a great spot for a quiet business lunch for two. The sandwiches are out of this world. Try the Italian Chicken Salad. The wine selection is not vast but what they do have is excellent. You will want to take a bottle home. Love to meet my wife there and enjoy a quiet lunch... More

As long time Annapolitans we have followed the Family Giolliti for more than 30 years. Eventhough we have frequented the Deli in Parole since it's opening. There is no other local venue which offers Italian Deli as well as prepared food to eat in or take out of such quality. Everything is first quality and delicious.

Don't judge a book by its cover. Walk across the street from Whole Foods and check out a locals delight! A family owned and run business with wonderful imported Italian foods, homemade breads, cheeses, and Italian specialties, a lovely and well-priced wine selection, and heavenly homemade breads. Whether you grab cold sandwiches to go (my personal fave is the eggplant... More

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
