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!

All the good things everyone else has said are so right. I haven't read them all, but in the reviews I read there were a couple of things I didn't see mentioned. Going late for lunch, maybe around 3pm, helps avoid the long lines, but also presents the danger that they will be sold out of at least some of... More

Words fail me. Easily one of the top five sandwiches I've ever had. My traveling companions agree.We were outside the place by 10:30 and first in line. By 11, there were a couple dozen behind us. All I can do is join the chorus praising the quality of the sandwiches here. If it were alone as the one worthwhile food... More

Skeptical at least to journey back to this side of town,but with the police museum next door and reviews singing the praises of the food. I had to try. Arriving early is a must. Parking is limited maybe 3 spots on street across from restaurant. I dropped family off circled through Chinatown with car awaiting for cell phone call. We... More

The porchetta sandwich is worth any wait. Arriving at 11:15, the line was only about 6 people out the door. The sampler of salami offered to those in line helped make the wait more pleasant. Want to try more but the sandwich is rather large. Grilled lamb sandwich was shared on different bread so the two of us were able... More
