If you DON'T like amazing sandwiches, don't go here. This family owned business has been passed from father to sons and it just gets better. Sandwiches are all hand made and hefty. Don't expect french fries but I recommend the number 26. That's a double decker BLT (order it on marbled rye, oh... read more

After I found out about this restaurant by some friends, I was surprised! The food is very good, you can feel the taste of real Food. Grate services, the price is very reasonable. The only thing is that not everyone knows there is this grate restaurant in east county area.

Antonelli's is an East County staple. It has been around since before I was a kid. The wait during lunch on any given day should speak for itself. I usually get an 8" #8 (Basically a club on french roll) the 12" is just too much food because they're about 4" - 6" wide and they do not skimp on... More

The line is often ling, so hot tip: Call in your order. The bread is always so soft, yet has a good chew to it. Your sandwich comes with a pickle, and they have just about any meat or cheese you would want. Combo deal comes with chips and a drink, but I always get their potato salad, it's not... More

Antonellis is a staple in east county. I don't eat here quite as much as I'd like but they do make an amazing sandwich. With a large selection of breads and different kinds of sandwiches you really can't go wrong. The wait time can get a bit lengthy, especially during the lunch hour so plan accordingly if you're stopping by... More

Really good food. Parking lot is really small. Sandwiches are always high quality. Staff runs wide open all lunch time. Indoor and outdoor seating. Come hungry because some of these sandwiches are large.

These sandwiches are more than ample for the average eater. The establisnment is rather small, but the quality of the food easily out weighs that minor inconvenience.
