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

I’ve been here twice (6 years apart) and it was delicious both times. It was also very crowded both times. Expect to wait at least 30 minutes in line. We arrived 10 minutes after it opened and there was still a very long wait. They did bring some delicious salami samples out while we waited. We ordered a few different... More

Get here early - the specials go very fast, and once they are gone they are gone for the day! This was possibly the best sandwich experience I've ever had.. next to a pastrami from NYC's Carnegie's Deli & the Muffaletta from NOLA's Central Grocery! The Porchetta melted in my mouth, but my favorite was the Hot Sopressata Salami with... More

Salumi has been an establishment that I've wanted to try for the past 3-4 years. We usually don't get the opportunity to visit Salumi because we are hardly ever here on weekdays between 11am-3pm. However, we had the chance recently to visit during the week and we decided to make this a must stop on this visit. We decided to... More

Pork lover unite! This place is tiny but the taste is BIG. They usually have a couple of pasta dishes but the highlight is the salami sandwiches. Line is always long wait can be up to an hour or more! Try going at 11 or 2-3 for limited wait. They are only open 11-3.

What negative thing can you say about a place that has a line out the door and around the corner at lunchtime? My husband went there by himself on our trip and demanded we come back the next day. Ancho chili and chocolate-cured salami? I mean, delicious. And you can probably split 1 sandwich between 2 people because they are... More

Heard about this place everywhere before going to Seattle ... I did a little bit of research and found out that you can avoid the long line (they say sometimes over an hour) by calling ahead for take-out. We took the Salumi and a Hot Soprasetta with us to go to Discovery Park and ate them overlooking Puget Sound (I... More

My family includes 3 cured meat fans and a vegetarian and we were all excited to try this place for lunch when we were recently in Seattle. We got there a bit late (close to 1:30) so things were running out but that's OK...everything is prepared fresh that day so it is to be expected. I was a little sad... More

We went here on a whim--and I am very glad we did. There was a long line. The guy a head of me told me to get the mole sand. The guy behind me told me to get the stuffed pepper. I got both. Unfortunately, when I ordered, I got the LAST pepper, so the guy behind me didn't get... More

This place makes incredible fresh curred meats and cheeses! The sandwiches are fantastic and worth the wait if there is one! Even before a baseball game ;)! I always try and grab a sandwich when visiting Seattle! I love the family oriented staff who are very friendly!
