Quirky with good food and Art Deco style

A landmark in Seneca Falls, NY. Good deli sandwiches, etc., in an atmospheric building. Visit the National Women's Rights Park and enjoy the charm of this historic town. The Seneca River is right behind the Deli. And, oh, yes, there is also the "It's A Wonderful Life" history. Sue & Burt Harbison

The deli is connected to Nonni's Italian Imports, next door. We wanted to pick up an Italian sub to have a picnic and we liked the sound of the sandwiches there. The owner cut all the meat and cheese as we waited. It was probably the best sandwich we've ever had. Italian bread crusty and fresh, meat delicious, with and... More

I'm from Long Island and i'm used to deli's. This isn't like the usual deli but it comes close. The sandwiches are huge and you have the option of ordering a 1/2 sandwich. Bread choices are plentiful. Customer service is friendly. You can't go wrong eating in or taking out.

Visited a couple of days ago. When you walk in you'll notice lots of choices posted on the menus on the wall to your left. Take the time to look them over because there are lots of choices. There are also a couple of specials each day. You'll find salads-with a good selection of dressings, soups, many sandwiches, cookies, chips.... More

Went there with my grandson for lunch last week. some of the names of their subs are based on the movie "It's a Wonderful Life". My grandson had a "Bedford Falls Panini".it was delicious. It is a restaurant that makes you feel at home. Everyone is so nice. It is spotless in there. I had a "Drama Mama" that was... More

Downtown Deli is a retro-themed restaurant with a lively atmosphere. The staff is attentive and friendly, and the menu is great!

If you like Neon you'll love this place. '60s (or earlier) décor with modern twists makes for an enjoyable atmosphere. There's nothing old-fashioned about the food, though - an interesting selection of interesting options, freshly prepared in plain sight. We suggest the George Bailey (if you liked "It's a Wonderful Life" you'll LOVE this)
