“Wide variety, very friendly service, clean and inviting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

On my initial visit to Gandolfo's, my first impression was, "Holy menu size, Batman!!" There are so many sandwich options that it is a bit overwhelming. The sandwiches are listed by Hot and Cold. You can get just about any combination of toppings, meats, sauce you want. I've never had a bad sandwich at Gandolfo's.

I have eaten here many times, and on about half the visits, the owner came to our table to visit and make sure everything was to our liking. It wasn't a token visit either. I'm not sure how to explain it, but I could tell the interest was genuine. I felt very welcome, rather than put upon or intruded upon.

Gandolfo's is not a formal restaurant, but it is not "fast-food" either. It's somewhere between the two. It's worth you checking out if you have never been there.

“Value, Price and Service - Outstanding!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Want a selection of great food? This is THE PLACE to go! The owner's are the ones you will be dealing with. They care about what they do and they care about the customers. Great value for the food you get. Come hungry because the portions are not small. Worth every penny! And they love cops! How great is that?

“Great sandwiches Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I love this place. The owner is always out talking to customers welcoming them and talking to them making sure their doing ok. The effort done here really goes the extra mile and you really feel your business is appreciated. And on top of all this the food is great. Choice of many different salads for a side or chips. They have a daily special with a sandwich, side and a drink that is reasonably priced. Many Many sandwiches to choose from, all great.

“Super sandwiches, worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I used to travel to NYC every other year or so for a "theater week," attending as many shows as possible during my stay. Meals were usually at some of NY's best delis (including the Stage deli). I thought it would be impossible to find good deli outside of Manhattan.

Then Gandolfo's came to Bellingham.

I have died and gone to deli heaven! Their sandwiches are amazing, full of thinly sliced meats, great classic breads, everything prepared to the best NY standards. Prices are quite reasonable for what you get, and what you get is a very good sandwich prepared quickly and served with a smile.

“Great Sandwiches and Hot Dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Every time we cross the border we stop for a hot dog or new york style sandwich here.
Great dogs loaded for less than $4. Huge, delicious sandwiches.
