The Best Bueben

This was my 3rd visit and never disappointed. Last time I had a wonderful fresh tuna salad and this time the triple decker Rueben. Both are great, but the Rueben was almost out of this world. They have a terrific pimento cheese dip and all sorts of great deli combinations, and deserts that cause... read more

DiPrato's is a wonderful cafe. Everything is good there, but we especially like the pimento cheese and pita chips. Heavenly! The tomato soup is awesome and I love all of their salads. Each day there are specials to choose from. I like to get some pimento cheese and chicken salad to take with us on the boat when the weather... More

Ate there today after reading TA reviews. Thanks to all that reviewed it before me because it was great! Had to wait about 15 min. for a table when we arrived at noon because of the brunch crowd. There was a wait for tables to entire time we were there, that is how good it was. The entire staff and... More

We ate at Di Prato's today for lunch and we could not have been happier. We started with the pimento cheese and pita chips for the table and they were great. I had the Monday Burger Special, which had bacon and pimento cheese on it and it was outstanding. This is not your basic hamburger meat, it was of a... More

My daughter raves about the tomato soup so on a visit I had to try. It was incredible but so is everything there. The potato salad, sandwiches and desserts! This is a must visit, can't wait to go back tomorrow for brunch!

I gotta be honest. DiPrato's had a lot to live up to--reviews in The State paper, Tripadvisor reviews, local media reports---all raving about how amazing the food is. Sorry to say this (because I wanted it to be amazing; I love some great deli food), but it really is just okay. Figure in the price (and I'm no cheapskate; I'll... More

Absolutely incredible deli meals, salads, sandwiches, pastries. Just the other side of the USC campus on Pickens St, and while it may appear to be off the beaten path, the crowd suggests those who know it love it.

The food here is always very good here. Sandwiches and brunch on the weekend. All the food looks great and the sides are amazing. Expect to wait for a table.

It is a good thing I don't live within walking distance of DiPratos! I would eat here every other day if I did. This is one of my favorite spots for lunch or brunch. Start your meal with one of the pimento cheeses and pita chips. I like the one made with smoked Gouda. The pita chips are puffy, warm... More
