“Great custom sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

It's been awhile since I visited this gem of a sandwich shop but I'm due. Choose a bun, choose your preferred sandwich meat and topping combo off the menu, and within minutes you're enjoying a fantastic Italian style sandwich for less than $5!! My advice? Buy two, cause you'll definitely wish you had one for the road if you don't!

“You have to go there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Like the earlier review, do not mistake this for the other DiRienzo place where everyone has been putting their reviews.

This out of the way place has to be one of Ottawa's least kept secrets, in an out of the way neighbourhood that people just flock to.

They only do take-out but there is a park across the establishment that you can picnic in I guess, if it's not too hot.

I've been there a couple of times and my family never misses passing by on every trip to Ottawa at least on the way home for a few sandwiches and prepared foods.

The place isn't much, but you absolutely get the best sandwiches, made fresh and reasonably priced.

If you're in a rush, there are prepared sandwiches at the front counter and you can't go wrong.

They make other Italian favourites like lasagna, etc that my family just gobble-up.

The last time I was there, a fire truck pulled up --- firemen get hungry too!!

“THIS is the original Di Rienzo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Too many are making the mistake of confusing this business with the one of the same name that is on Meadowlands. They are not affiliated and are not the same. The BEECH location is the one that everyone talks about!!! The Beech location is where you go for the experience. These guys are good. They do things "old school". They are only takeout but they have more than just sandwiches to eat!!! They make a variety of homemade pastas for lunch and dinner every day and they bring in fresh Italian desserts that sell out fast. For five dollars you can get a meal of pasta or a sandwich!!! Tough to beat the value/quality ratio here. There's a lot of sandwich places out there but only Di Rienzo on Beech is the BEST.
