Average basic deli, nothing too special

Visited this place recently for lunch. My colleague and I both had soup and salad. I opted for the Caprese Salad and lentil soup, he opted for the Mediterranean Salad and tomato bisque. The salads were edible, but really offered no real flavor and kind of bland. The tomatoes on the Caprese tasted... read more

The place itself was very simply furnished wit a few tables and chairs. ordinary looking deli interior. But, the food was absolutely delicious at a fair price. I had a cheese-steak sub with fries, came out hot, flavorful, and well portioned. My companions had a chickensteak combo and a pita sub combo and both were very happy with their choices... More

We had Bruscato's cater for a family funeral for 50 crazy picky Italians, there was not much left :) The eggplant was a big hit as well as the Chicken Alfredo The portions were very big and we had plenty to go around.

Cannot deal with a place with posted hours who are not open when they post their hours. They sent out delivery menus and then never delivered. They said open at night, never open at night. I went there walk in for lunch. Waiting in line 20 min to get a miniscule, mediocre tuna sandwich. I don't see what the fuss... More

This is not really a restaurant, more of a deli but you can sit at a few places....the sandwiches are made on authentic Italian bread, but why pay $7 for 2 slices of cold cuts on a nice roll? The soups are not too involved, but expensive. And the made-to-order salad -- fuggedabowdit! -- just walk an extra two blocks... More

This great italian deli offers sandwiches, panini, salads, pizza, and daily specials. You can have a hearty lunch for $10...don't know who wrote the profile and said 20. One of the hole-in-the wall gems amidst Old Town's overpriced white linen restaurants. Terrific food.
