We like just about everything we ever get at Al Ducci's and we're buying often. I highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms, brocolli rabé, anything with chicken and eggplant rollatini. The italian veggie, turkey and brie with fig jam and italian meat sandwiches are fabulous too. The best part is they offer a lot of gluten-free items and are happy to... More

Very simple place. Food is great. Service was great. If you are looking for a great place with a casual environment than this is the place.

Al Ducci's is a "restaurant" located next to his deli...you walk through the deli to get to the dining room. We had a party of three and what do you order at an Italian restaurant..?.. pasta: an order of pasta and meatballs, pasta alfrado, and pasta with pesto. They were all under seasoned and we had to ask for grated... More

Good picnic/dinner supplies. Italian meats, some prepared meals in the freezer, good cheese. Bought a nice selection of meats and cheese, along with fresh bread and had this for dinner one night.

I stopped by to pick up a sandwich, some eggplant parmesan for dinner and a bottle of wine. All were delicious! I loved the store and had to resist buying everything. This is a wonderful place. I wish we had something half this good in my city. Definitely worth a stop.

We were shopping in Manchester and I had plan to eat there because of the reviews. Well both me and my girlfriend were disappointed. We love freshly made sandwich and regularly have some in our hometown. Service was excellent, all the counter girls were smiling and having fun and they all seemed to enjoy helping the customer. Plenty of choices... More

Thanks to the reviews here on Trip Advisor, we sought this little gem out for lunch on our recent visit to the Manchester area. We were SO glad we did! The homemade mozzarella and bread made the sandwiches (we had roasted eggplant and peppers, freshly cooked chicken cutlets, and olive oil). Fresh salad and Espresso Coffee Soda rounded out our...

Al Ducci's is a great place to grab some lunch. Everything is made to order and very reasonably price. You can't get a better sandwich in town.

This is my favorite Foodie Store in Manchester. If you want to impress your company, get Al's homemade semolina bread, H.M. mozzarella, and serve with fresh sliced tomatoes, basil, and roasted peppers and good olive oil.A little anchovy is good with it as well. It's the best summer meal or starter. His pizzas, sausages, eggplant parm. pasta salads, etc etc... More
