Is It Worth the Wait?

Was it worth standing in line at least half an hour on the first day they were open in the new year in freezing temperatures with a few snowflakes? Was it worth getting pinched in the doorway as everyone jostled to get in and out? Was it worth fighting for a place to sit? Was it worth going to... read more

Start with the right pigs. Make really fine Italian charcuterie. Add just enough embellishments. Tuck into artisan bread with lots of holes and wonderful crustiness. Perfect. Worth the wait.

The atmosphere is amazing. Simple place where you feel comfortable and haze amazing ingredients. Don't miss the porchetta sandwich.

The line starts early in front of this place so, if you want a seat for lunch get there 15-25 minutes before they open at 11. No place for vegans (why would anyone be a vegan in the first place?). The porchetta sandwich on a chibatta roll is off the charts good. To kill for that sandwich would be justifiable... More

Armandino's cured meats are utterly fantastic and reason enough to go here, but I also love the atmosphere of dining in at the communal tables in back with the bottles of wine you help yourself to--and then pay for when you leave. We've ordered salumi platters, porchetta, sandwiches to eat in, sandwiches to go--we've done it all, and every single... More

Ate here for the second time and was even better than the first. Great house made meats, sandwiches and pasta. Don't be late to get the best selection!

Went to this place after one of my business associates recommended it. It was a little hard to find as the front is just a door and a small window. They say you can find it by the line but there was no line when we went. The ladies behind the counter were more than friendly when I asked for... More

Yep, there was a line but it was worth it. Everyone in line was lovely and patient and chatty which made the 20 min wait not so bad. My husband and I decided to get (and split) the muffo salumi sandwhich and the salumi, cheese and olive plate - both were SO good. The woman in front of me ordered... More

We selected this restaurant based on reviews we read on Trip Advisor and we're SO glad we did! What a unique place! It's a tiny little restaurant with even less seating that we ended up sharing with other customers but we didn't mind - it was well worth it! We waited in line for about 15 minutes I'd do it...

Yes, you are pretty much guaranteed to queue/lineup for this Italian heaven. Worth the wait? Yes no matter how long. Customers lineup with no problems with the wait. My favourite is the porchetta sandwich. Delicious and yummy! Everything is fresh and made on the spot based on your request. The bread is excellent. The daily specials can be equally tasty.... More
