One friend took us to this restaurant and it was amazing. They have many options based on the same meat, I tried one with Rumanian Pastrami and bacon, it was just great and got better after adding a bit of cole slaw in the sandwich. The parking was pricey but it's not restaurant's problem, it's normal at Boston downtown.

This place is as good as it gets for deli sandwiches. Portions are large and are of very good quality. Anytime you see police and firemen standing in line at a restaurant you know it has to be good. LaGrassa's must be an institution in Boston given the number of office workers that line up each day. There are numerous... More

This restaurant was a block from our hotel and we happened to walk by around lunch time so we thought we would give it a try. Wow. This may seem like an assembly line for sandwiches and sides but the food was excellent, and the restaurant area was clean. (there was staff hovering to clean tables as people left) It... More

This restaurant must be an institution with some nostalgia involved for Bostonians. The place was homey and unpretentious and the food was good. A little overhyped. But the corn beef sandwich was solid. I judge a food recommendation by one standard- was it good enough that we would either 1. return to the same place when we returned for another... More

I was determined to not leave Boston without getting a pastrami sandwich from LaGrassa's. On my way back to the Amtrak station we got the sandwiches and took them to the station, found a table and we had the best pastrami sandwiches. My mouth is watering right now. I may have to make a trip back just for the sandwich.... More

You must have a Sam Lagrasso sandwich! Bread is so fresh, meat is sliced thin and piled high, even the pickle is outstanding! My turkey sandwich tasted like Thanksgiving turkey...not like the wet, gross turkey you get at the deli. OMG...so darn good! We can't wait to go back. If they were open past 3 we'd be there for dinner.... More

Incredible sandwich. The pastrami corned beef combo was one of the best ever. Fresh bread. Go early. Only open for lunch.

While all the sandwiches at Sam LaGrassa's are pretty good, the stand out item to order is the half sour deli style pickles. I will make a trip there just for the pickles!
