Stopped here for lunch after reading Trip Advisor reviews. This place is a gem! It is much larger than it appears from the outside and can accommodate parties from1-20. I had the chicken saltimbocca panini and it was delicious as was the potato salad on the side. Service was excellent, very efficient and friendly. Next time I will take someone... More

A friend and I stopped in to pick up lunch after a busy day. We ordered at the counter and waited while our sandwiches were made. The deli was very busy and the food display's appeared to be professionally styled; a touch I did not expect in a small deli. Parking was bad, they do have a lot but being... More

I went to DI Pratos several years ago and had a few items from the deli. I DREAMED about the pimento cheese and fried pita chips ever since then. I finally got back there and took my family. This time we dined in. Not only was the waitress attentive and helpful, but she was so friendly! We all ordered meals... More

Terrific sandwich, friendly service. I Had not been to DiPrato's in a while. The waitstaff now takes orders from your table and everything seems much more organized. I definitely will be returning.

I visited Di Pratos for lunch with my mom on a girls afternoon out and was very excited because of the light and southern atmosphere. The wait staff was sweet and knew the menu well. I had never had pimento cheese before, being from the midwest, and the waitress even brought me out a sample of tge pimento cheese (actually... More

I had the crab benedict and mimosas. My daughter had the eggs benedict and mimosas. We went for brunch the service was fast and you now are seated and place your order with your waiter. I had the grits they were very smooth and tasty. The fruit wasn't that good but overall it was great.

I went there with my hubby and daughter'so family. We had a wonderful time. Great food, biscuits and gravy, french toast, Cuban sandwich. All was so good. Size of portions were huge. We had a half hour wait which was tough with a 2 year old but worth it.

really disappointed in the touted corned beef Reuben-it arrived in a pool of oil, soaking through the paper underneath and leaving me feeling like half of it stayed on my face. Two bites were my limit and the server offered to bring something else, but I opted to have the charge removed from the bill instead. The other sandwiches ordered... More
