This place is an amazing sandwich shop experience. Everything they serve is excellent.The shop has limited hours and days. I have never seen a place that sells out of everything in a couple of hours (if that tells you anything). There is always a line. Be prepared. It does move fast. Check the hours and days they will be open... More

Man, I would would in a line 5 blocks long for any thing they serve. Porchetta or mole would have to be my favorite sandwich in the universe.

Bought a Porchetta Sandwich (for lunch) and 4 meatballs (for dinner). Ate half of this yummy sandwich in the car and successfully didn't get any on me. The rest went in the refrig at home. Reheated the meatballs for dinner and the rest of the sandwich the next day (which some how had some unaccounted-for bites taken out of it).... More

whether you eat in or you take away their cured meats... it is all worth the troubles... beware you might hoard meats... best to reserve your orders (cured meats only) by phone before setting pick up time...for the porchetta and other eat in stuff, one may have to wait in line still... what else can I say, so great... it...

Excellent sandwiches paired with delicious bread. Be prepared to stand in line (it goes out the door during lunch time) and the seating is tight (you may have to get it to go), but the food is awesome!

I thought my son was crazy when he suggested we get up early just to stand in line a half an hour before this restaurant actually opened. I don't DO lines! It was so totally worth the wait... even if the weather is crappy!! Dress warm, bring an umbrella, wear comfortable shoes, make sure your bathroom needs have been met...... More

If you are one of us that recognizes genuine top of the line, the best you can buy, nothing in comparison foods then Salumi's is an absolute must. Salumi's has it all, friendly,fast, fresh and genuine. Park at the corner of s. Jackson and 4th, get there early and look for the line.

When you go to some of the finer restaurants in Seattle, you'll notice on some of their menus that their cured meat is supplied by Salumi. This is the source! It is started by celebrity chef, Mario Batali's father and is still run by the family. They are proud of the food they serve. When I was there, they simply... More

Amazing house-cured meats and fantastic sandwiches and other Italian food. On a lovely day, carry your food to a nearby park. On a rainy day, if you're lucky enough to find room, take one of the few seats inside at one of the community tables and make some new friends. Then sit back and be amazed that, although you've already... More

Tiny little hole in the wall with grandma in the little corner in the front making pasta is just the beginning. If this is a retirement activity, then I want it too! The most fabulous cured meat sandwiches along with the meatballs and the very infrequently made ox-tails (this is made only 4 times a year and you need to... More
