Wonderful place for lunch

Di Prato's is the best place for a great lunch. The food is excellent and the service quick and professional. It is a treat for us to drive downtown to go to DiPratos. By the way they have the greatest Pimento Cheese I have ever tasted.

I brought my family to lunch all the way from Wisconsin. They weren't familiar with Pimento Cheese so we ordered that first. They loved it, as I knew they would. We ordered a Reuben, Turkey Reuben, and Veggie Panini. All 3 were excellent. We were the only people there at the moment (which rarely ever happens, by the way) so... More

This is now THE restaurant that I seek out when looking for a nice, healthy place to eat in Columbia. It's a deli in Columbia that doesn't serve dinner. Parking is limited and there is usually a crowd but the wait, if any, is worth it. I like the choices, especially the "select two." I usually go with a sandwich... More

The manager of this restaurant wagged her finger in my face and completely belittled me in front of hundreds of people!!! Then she called my job making lawsuit threats and told them to tell me not to return!!!! When i spoke with the owner, she told me firing her was to extreme and tried to give me a gift certificate....

our favorite corner deli that has it all. my pick is always the roasted pepper panini that is loaded with artichokes and a pesto mayo you apply yourself. I also like to take home the black-eyed pea salad, pimento cheese with fried pita chips, and the hummus. you won't go wrong with anything that you choose. Everything is made in... More

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
