Best Deli in Wallingford

Although Gigante's is commonly known as the go-to deli in Wallingford, Rosa's continually makes theses amazing sandwiches and grinders and even soups that make it our office's go-to spot at least 2x a week.

As a frequent traveler driving back and forth between NYC and Boston, I had been looking for a decent spot in the middle of the journey to rest and eat. Well, I think I've found the perfect spot. Rosa's Deli has great food and the service is excellent. I've tried the Meatball Eggplant ($8) and Turkey sandwiches ($5), both excellent... More

I've been here many times, the last time I went I asked for a ham and cheese hoogie wit mustard, it probably was the thinnest Sammie I have ever gotten! I hate to say it but I won't be back!

We've been going to Rosa's for over 10 years. Whether its soup and sandwich on the run, or catering for a holiday party, Rosa's never fails. The pasta fagiola is a mainstay in our dinner rotation!

For years I heard the Thanksgiving sub at Rosa's was out of this world. I never got one until today because I am not a big fan of turkey.... I ordered the Thanksgiving dinner option-the turkey is super moist and tender. The stuffing is out of this world. The dinner includes cranberry sauce too!! I purchased a Thanksgiving sub for...

Rosa's is never a bad place to have a Classic Italian sandwich or cold cut. On needs to know they will wait for these delicacies. The price is New England normal. Love it though as always. So satisfying all you want to do is come back.

I eat at Rosa's at least every other week, mostly because I'm not nearby to eat there more often. Their lunch specials are the best. Mannicott, stuffed shells, ravioli, all come with bread and butter, cheese and a meatball and sausage link. They also have a great selection of Italian meats and specialty items, This is truly a great, small... More
