Good vegetarian sandwich options.

I had a nice caprese sandwich on a soft roll and I enjoyed it a lot. I would eat there again for sure. Staff was friendly too.

This is a great deli in town. The sandwiches are large and filling. The service is excellent. It's great to have an Italian style deli in town.

This little deli tucked into the darling streets of Davis never disappoints. There are wonderful unique Italian treats and food items that I regularly buy as gifts. But the sandwiches...... this is why we have eaten here for ~14 years! Try them all. Every single one is amazing. The energetic staff is always friendly and engaging, and they give excellent...

I was visiting with an extended family and this place was recommended by a local resident family member. Our problem was the seating. There are a few tables outside, and even less inside (maybe one or two personal tables). The service is also slow because they make your sandwich fresh when you order it, which then backs up the line.... More

I lost a bet with one of my students so it was her choice for lunch. She picked Zia's. I have lived in the area for a long time but have never tried Zia's before. As soon as I arrived I knew it was going to be good based on the line out front. It is a very popular lunch... More

Very quaint little cafe. Luckily, we happened to get there before the lunch rush and the person taking our order was very accommodating and eager to make us anything we wanted. She took extra time explaining what she could make for the kids. And even brought their sandwiches out first while my panini was being pressed. The kids were especially... More

We arrived a little early for lunch and had a short wait in line, but there was plenty of seating inside and out. I had the Luca & my wife had the Roma, both had generous portions of meat for such a modest price. The marinated artichokes tasted like homemade. Topped it off with an excellent expresso. There was a... More

Zia's is consistently good. I've never had a bad meal there, and I go once or twice a week. The Roma is my favorite (on a soft roll!). I've always found the staff to be very friendly. Yes, it does get quite busy at lunchtime, but so does everywhere in downtown Davis. It's worth dealing with for the food, and... More

I drive from Vacaville to get a sandwich at Zia's in Davis - enough said! You must have the pesto mayo. To die for. Lots of goodies to buy in the deli also. Come prepared to be impressed!

Zia's is by far the best sandwich in town but if you're looking for a sandwich at lunchtime during the week you'll have to wait a bit. Another option, if you're short on time, would be the Davis Co-op, which is a favorite of mine. But if you have the time Zia's is worth the wait. Or pick up a... More
