Great sandwiches made with fresh focaccia and ciabatta. Yummy traditional Italian desserts like almond cookies and sfiogliatelle. Side dishes like caponata rounded out our meal. Definitely worth a visit!

While under new management, Al Ducci's is still a great gourmet deli with delicious food for takeout and tables for eating in. We did both! They have a large selection of meats, cheeses, prepared foods, frozen items, pastas, and items to fill an Italian pantry. We had lunch with excellent pasta e fagioli soup and a wonderful sandwich. We ordered... More

First class Italian deli with a wide range of food prepared on premise...salads, soups, sandwiches, pizza, daily entree specials etc., as well as pantry food items. A great place for lunch, either take-out or eat in. They are offering a new soup and salad bar now. They have a separate room for eat-in, and a few outdoor tables for the... More

Another one of those places that is very consistent. Great Italian fare to eat in or take out. Terrific deli and market. If you ever have the need try their catering.

We enjoyed a good selection, friendly service and reasonable prices and we were able to enjoy our lunch in the dining room. Art work on the walls added to the ambiance.

Since Al turned over his lovely little store to "two ripe sisters" it has gotten even better. Wonderful selection of pastas, olive oils, vinegars and many other canned and bottled Italian ingredients. And the take out has ramped up with cheeses, sausages, and prepared dishes enough to keep a family of foodies happy when we didn't feel like cooking.

We stopped at Al Ducci's Italian Pantry for lunch. It is a deli with some outside seating but is primarily a take out and catering business. The deli was very busy at lunch time, but after taking a number, the wait was not long. The menu included a good selection of soups, sandwiches, entrees and salads which you could customize....

We've only done takeout but Al Ducci's never fails to deliver. Excellent homemade marinara, meat or puttanesca sauces frozen or ready to go. Besides lunch items, there's a huge variety of frozen or fresh dinner dishes: lasagna, eggplant, chicken and penne,etc. Fresh deli foods, cheeses, breads, olives, sausages as well. A large selection of gluten free Italian as well. sometimes... More
