Tiny place, huge sandwich

this is a tiny little hole in the wall that specializes in wonderful deli sandwiches. The porchetta on their version of ciabatta was a wonder. They pack so much meat into this sandwich that it could feed a family. But, it was so delicious I didn't want to share! Expect to wait. We got there at 11... read more

Quaint. Not for everyone. Not cheap. But if you are a professed carnivore with an Italian bent, you'll love it. Provided that you arrive when they are open: just a few hours around midday, open for lunch, so check on the web or call to make sure the place is open. And be prepared to find all tables occupied, in... More

Porchetta sandwich is fabulous! Difficult to get a seat inside. If you are anywhere near here around lunchtime you need to go!

They're only open for lunches, four days a week. The line starts forming before they open, and it doesn't go down until they've started to run out of things. There's just one crowded communal table, and during the noon hour it's usually full. Why would anybody put up with all that? I would...especially on days when they have culatello. With... More

The food is great the biggest problem is their small space and well deserved following. Waiting in line is common & worth the wait. If you happen by and there's no line and you're hungry, then you're in luck. Some of the best meat to be had in town.

This is an easy review to write. There isn't a single thing on the menu that you can go wrong with. We've been there many times and always try new things. EVERYTHING is delicious!!!

Salumi is famous for their hand made gnocci, cured meats and the line of lunch time fanatics that often stretches around the corner of the block :( but, the porchetta sandwich is truly to die for. The pork is braised (presumably) and then slow cooked with a combination of spices that seem out of this world. I tried to replicate... More

Salumi is really one of the greatest Italian sandwich shops in the country. The restaurant specializes in its in house made cured meats. The restaurant is owned and operated by the parents of Mario Batali from Food Network. The tough part of the restaurant is that there is always a line and its only open for 3-4 hours each day....
