Nice selection of locally grown olive oil and wines. Lots of variety of pasta and tomato paste and olive tapenade was OK, but a little too much oil.

I'm really not sure why these sandwiches just taste so good. It might be the soft, delicious breads or the thinly sliced cheeses and meats. Maybe it's the signature juice and sprouts. Or they way they halve and spread a fresh avocado in 1 second flat. Or the simple, no-nonsense old-fashioned atmosphere. I really don't know. Maybe you'll figure it... More

I am pretty cool with low brow but that this Deli didn't have a bathroom skeeved me. Perhaps had I known that it's more of a grab n' go, I'd have been okay with the no bathroom situation. I got an egg salad on whole wheat and it was just okay. (I am comparing it to the egg salad sandwiches... More

Ask any local....the best sandwich is here. Get there early or stand in line. Need I say more? Well Trip advisor says I need to have 50 words. I think that's kinda lame, but whatever. So please disregard this rambling.

Upon arriving from Maryland...my sister picked up a deli sandwich from Giugni's....which was outstanding. Not too good for my cholesterol....but who cares. If looking for a picnic meal for your wine tour...call this place. Their Giugni's Sauce was also a must...put it on a pair of flip flops and it will still taste good.

This is basically a take out deli, which was fine for us because we were getting food for a picnic. You go down the line and choose your meats and cheese, and then your bread, and they build your sandwich to your specs. I got roasted chicken, sharp cheddar, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo and Guingni "juice", pronounced "Junie... More

If you live in Saint Helena, you already know Giugni's makes the tastiest sandwiches in town. They may be a bit rustic, they may be a bit light on the fillings, but the flavors and quality are super. Get in line, order your meat and cheese. Move to next station and choose bread and answer the myriad of questions of... More

Guigni's deli style is slice per order. No meats are pre-cut which was exactly my grandfathers style. The sandwiches are fresh and tasty. You have to try the Guigni juice too.

This former grocery store, now a deli, still has the old fixtures and feeling of its history. They make a darn good deli sandwich!
