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

No wonder the line is always long. We had the Castoville Italian on sourdough. Excellent bread-excellent sandwich. Had them twice! If you want you can sit outside and people watch-almost as good as Vegas

We ordered a muffuletta and Santa Cruz sandwiches. It was yummy. Service was quick and nice. Definitely worth a visit. By the way, they have an excellent vegetarian menu.

Located in downtown Santa Cruz. This deli market is right next to the Verve coffee shop. Double entrances. I came in through the back door. There was somewhat a line during lunch that was fairly quick to take orders. As I glanced over menu I settled to try the Bandwich. Grilled chicken breast, pesto, artichokes, and pepper jack cheese on... More

Zoccoli's is a family run operation, with a long time local following. The sauces on their pastas , both meat and meat-less are delicious! There is also a great menu of sandwiches, daily soup specials and salads to go. Having worked here many years ago, I know the quality of the food has always been a priority for the owners!
