The service is excellent as always! If you are a repeat customer Bennett has an incredible memory and will remember your name and last discussion. Bennett is also a strong supporter of our troops. The sandwiches are to die for and they have a large selection of breads, meats, and other fillings. I visited Compagnos twice this last week for... More

I really hate to give a less than stellar review to anyone. I try to live by the adage; if you can't say something nice... But here I have to speak out because I feel duped. I went to this little deli on the advice of Tripadvisors. My first thought was, "this is definitely not what expected." But still it's... More

Sandwiches are expensive and of mediocre quality. Yes they are very large but nothing to be excited about. The meat was full of gristle making it hard to bite off. It took a very long time to get the sandwiches. I can get a much better sandwich at Nob Hill Grocery store at the deli counter.

The sandwiches are so good and absolutely huge. When I got my "half" hot pastrami sandwich I was sure they had made a mistake. Would definitely feed two people. They offer a great selection of sandwiiches which you can customize to your own liking. Then the amazing selection of chips and beverages in this deli is over the top. The... More

This is not for the faint of heart! The sandwiches are huge, but sooo good! I like the number 2 the best, on whole wheat flat bread. The sandwiches can be customized to your liking. Everything is fresh. We will go out of our way to eat here. The sandwiches are that good!! Have one in mid-afternoon to cover both... More

i just had the most amazing roast beef and cheddar sandwich. Delicious, fresh roast beef - not the measured out, puny pieces that you get at the chain sub sandwich place that's on every corner. Real, choice roast beef that is well-seasoned. And a nice, thick slice of cheddar cheese, all surrounded by a soft, chewy French roll and covered... More

This is a great concept. A fish store that also is a restaurant. The prices and the portions are so unexpectedly affordable. One could not find fresher. Enjoy the water view, experience the fresh catch of the day. All prepared in front of your eyes. No cans for the cooking or chemical laden preservatives added to last for generations available...

Thank heavens we read about the huge sandwich size before ordering. 3 adults and 3 children but it only took 2 sandwiches to satisfy us all and have leftovers! The host welcomed us to the area, made some suggestions for spots we should visit, and capped off our lunch with a free huge wedge of chocolate cake! Delicious!

After seeing reviews of Compagno's on tripadvisor we decided to try it out! The whole sandwich is HUGE and could easily feed four. It was delicious!! I also choose a piece of the chocolate cake to share and we enjoyed every bite. It, too, was a very generous sized piece! The only down side to the deli is that it... More

Our friends told us not to miss this place while in Monterey. We got our sandwiches and went down to the beach to eat them. But they do have some tables there. The sandwiches are incredable. If you go at lunch time, there will be a line. Don't worry its worth it. Just get in line! They might be a... More
