Family owned deli that is old school!!! Best in rochester in my book!

How sad am I that I no longer live around the corner from this one of kind, lost art, neighborhood deli! From the homemade sausage and deli salads to the wonderful and delicious subs and sandwiches, this is still the deli I come back to at least once a week! Dominic and his family all work so hard... read more

This is a wonderful little deli that serves a variety of sandwiches made to order. It also sells fresh cold cuts, sausage, salads, etc. The staff is very helpful and friendly. And the prices are great!

I ordered deli meats to take home. After I got home, I made sandwich. Deli meats taste old and not good. It's looks like not many customers order deli meats and been left there too long.

Friendly people, very fair prices and OH MY GOD the red osier sub's...best roast beef sub I've ever had. The world needs more places like this and less cookie cutter corporate joints.

Like was ok. They don't have an antipasto salad on the menu and they were nice enough to attempt making one. That was nice but a real antipasto on the menu would be nice.

Very fine steak subs with rochester hot sauce - be sure to say meat sauce or you'll get frank's red hot - and great overall deli. Fine meats and cheeses. A very fine place to go. Sit down area. Most major sauces and Rochester delicacies ranging from Zweigles hot sauces and hot dogs to Sal's birdland sauce. Rochester expatriates like... More
