The sandwiches are delicious, but we also like to pick up cheese and cold cuts from their excellent selection. Good food and good service -- that's why this place is so popular!

My wife and I had a sandwich lunch at Zoccali's Dei today. The sandwiches were made to order and all of the ingredients were fresh and most healthy. The staff were most efficient and pleasant. The outdoor tables made the experience even better!

Driving in to Santa Cruz we always have our first lunch at our favorite deli. What a meal! I had the ravioli dinner and my wife had a minestrone and salad. Excellent! We then sat outside (the only place you can eat) and watched all the weirdos walking the sidewalk. We then realized why we hardly ever come to Santa... More

Great sandwiches in downtown SC. The staff aren't overly cheerful, but they make great sandwiches! They have fresh pasta which I haven't tried as of yet. I usually get sandwiches to go, but there is seating outside on Pacific.

So, you are visiting downtown Santa Cruz and want a quick reasonably priced sandwich, salad or soup - venture down to the last block near the town clock. Here you will find a great deli that has been in Santa Cruz for several generations. Good food, efficient service (take out only) and superb place to take your food outside to... More

Great place to have a sandwich in downtown Santa Cruz... Right next to Verve with plenty of tables outside... Lots of specialty sandwiches on great chewy bread that I believe they bake onsite

Great family deli, fresh and tasty. They have a great terrace. We ordered a red clam chowder and a Italian club. It was delicious. Highly recommend.

We were looking for something quick but fresh and tasty, and we found it! We tried the breakfast sandwich and all really enjoyed it! Would recommend, everything else looked great and if we go back to Santa Cruz, I'm sure we will go back!

Excellent selection, fresh ingredients and very busy. Must be doing something right. We had the Mufaleta sandwiches which were good but different than expected. Smooth tapenade spread as opposed to typical olive salad. No ham and much less cheese, no comparison to Mufaleta in New Orleans
