An old line establishment that stays in business by giving the best food and the best service to their customers, many of whom are obviously regulars. I only get to Pacifica three or four times a year, but always stop here. My personal favorite is their calamari salad -- it's full of calamari without a whole bunch of garnish filler.... More

I still love this deli after being away for 12 years. Despite the fact that my sammich maker used Dutch crunch (don’t like) instead of the advertised home-baked sourdough, our “Napoleon” sammich was very tasty. I guess next time I have to specify to use the correct bread. This deli makes great sandwiches.

This deli is a wonderful spot. It is family run, has been in business many years, and they know what they are doing. Their specialty sandwiches are particularly delicious. They only have a few tables inside -- most people take their orders to go.

The Godfather is my regular sandwich and I take it to baseball or football games though now I have to watch my diet so share it. They also a great deli area and tasty items to shop for. Pricey but...

This place has outstanding sandwiches, if you are really hungry and have time to wait go here and you will not be disappointed. The portions are large so be prepared! We'll also tried some of the pre made food (salads, lasagna, meatballs) - all very tasty. Very limited seating but you can walk 2 blocks to the ocean and look... More

There is absolutely nothing that is done poorly in this deli! They have fresh baked breads, delicious lunchmeats, spectacular spreads and enormous portions! Come hungry! There is often a wait around lunch time, but it is sooooo worth it. I'd like to pick one sandwich as my favorite, but the truth is they are all amazing - I have even... More

This is a great Italian deli with made to order sandwiches and several pre made salads. There was no wait, the sandwiches were large and delicious, and the prices reasonable.

We knew it would be busy after reading the reviews before our trip, but it was well worth the wait. The sourdough bread is soooo good. The staff was very nice to everyone, even though they were so busy.

A hidden gem in dingy Pacifica with home baked bread, real lunchmeats, and a bunch of cool Italian crap for sale.

I have been going to this deli for almost 20 years . It's always busy mid day and sometimes slammed busy . Go in for your first time and figure out what you like. Then call it in prior to the lunch rush . Great people great service
