“Best Lunch in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Search out this little gem and you won't be sorry. This deli is a favourite of the locals, offering delicious sandwiches that are you none other. If the service rubs you the wrong way consider how busy this place is and that it is a family run business. It's healthy, tasty and comforting. For a quick lunch, order their two meat sandwich and enjoy!!

“Healthy Yummy Excellence in a bun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I sometimes crave the meat and cheese buns from this place! Everything is fresh and truly excellent. The fresh buns are stuffed full of quality deli meats, cheeses and veggies of your choice. As someone who abhores fast food, but sometimes needs to eat on the go, Il Vecchio's is the perfect alternative. I phone ahead, bring cash and get there with my mouth already watering. I am not usually a sandwich gal, but Il Vecchio's has converted me.

“Best Sandwich in Penticton for taste & value...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Everytime I eat one of the 2 meat sandwiches l hear the infomercial voice in my head going how much would you expect to pay for a customized sandwich piled high with your choice of 2 meats, deli cheese and a unique veggie combination including sundried tomatoes and pickled artichokes...

Well with other inferior sandwich shops you could expect to pay upwards of $8, $9 even $10, but not here... Here we give you the best quality in fresh ingredients (yes way fresher than Subway) and it's only $4.48 taxes in...

How can we afford to do this you ask? Well they sell loads of these everyday! You can't really say you are a Pentictonite unless you eat here on a weekly basis... Just sayin'

Best deli sandwich in town hands down.

“Still the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This looks so drab from the outside but these are the best sandwiches is town! You should expect there to be a line up - especially around lunch time but I will wait! If you know what you want you can phone in your order and just pick it up - now I love it even more.
