Adam Sandler recommend via repeated mention in his movie grown ups.We decided to give them a try today.The canolli was good and tasted fresh but not exceptional. The real star of the show is the pizza and sub selection here.Nice buttery dough and soft bread. Again,nothing amazing, but still very good.there are also imported items here for foodies.

Fresh, tasty, and addictive. Pace yourself! Owners and workers polite even when packed especially at lunch. Call ahead to have it done when you get there.

Virgilios is great if you order the St Joseph's sandwich. After that is just a great roll with Italian cold cuts. Nothing special

No seating in the building but we went right to the near by water front. Tons of sandwiches and lunch options to choose from. More Italian and local favorites. Nice friendly staff, especially us out of towners, not knowing what to order. Lots of Italian favorite! Huge sandwiches! Great food!!
