When you get a grinder from Nardelli's you get a meal. They has a special pepper/onion dressing that put the flavor over the top. Prices are resonable too

We hope you've tried our cannoli or a cheesecake burrito, too. It's hard to save room for dessert, so we understand if you haven't had a chance. We are also glad to hear that our... More

This place is hopping at lunch time. They have several locations and easy to find. The sandwich menu is tops, deli items are always fresh, and desserts tasty! Eat in or take it and run.

Thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews, we found this great sandwich place! We were served quickly and the Italian combos were excellent. Those in our party who ordered the whole subs had to take half of their sandwiches to go! We will definitely stop here again when traveling on I-84 (easy on and off the highway, with signs for Nardelli's... More

Came through on July 2nd in the evening. We'd been through about 10 days before and I had a classic Italian combo. It was a good sandwich, but I now know it's more about the quality of the meat than anything Nardelli's does. On the plus, they use an excellent bread, certainly from off premises. it has a nice crust... More

After driving by Nardelli's off exit 25 probably 1000 times I finally decided to stop in and give it a try. I ordered 2 large grinders. One was roast beef with "everything"the other was chicken salad with just American cheese. Both sandwiches were delicious and the portions were more than generous. The setting is clean comfortable and attractive. If I... More

Stopped here for the first time while traveling down I-84. An easy off/on the highway. Parking in the small lot can be tough when it's busy, but it was easy to park on the street.
