This little gem is only 4 blocks from my home and all of my family visit here regularly. Sandwiches are made to order so they are always fresh! Val started this deli 20 years ago and it is now run by her granddaughter who is keeping the same quality service and product. The BEST sandwich in the okanagan valley! And... More

This place is so busy, the turnover of cold cuts, especially the Italian ones, ensures They are the freshest possible.

We wanted to grab a sandwich to take along with us for a bike ride along the KVR. The menu is simple but overwhelming. You can order sandwiches with 2 meats and a cheese but the selection of both was huge! I didn't know what would be good together, so the girl working helped recommend everything. She also recommended that... More

Il Vecchio is an Italian grocery store that has excellent pasta, olive oil, and all the fine things that go with Italian cooking. It also serves the most delicious sandwiches. It is a grocery store, not a restaurant, although there are a few simple tables. The sandwiches are served in freshly baked buns, and the choices of fillings are enormous.... More

This little place in Penticton has the sandwich nailed. Stunning range of meats and cheeses and a delicious formula combined with extremely reasonable prices make this place a sure winner. The deli is also stocked with excellent Italian oils, biscotti and etc. Worth a detour.

Whenever vacationing in the Penticton area, our itinerary ALWAYS includes a stop at Il Vecchio's for one their famous made-to-order sandwiches. We either eat-in at this family Italian deli-grocery and soak in the atmosphere (if we're lucky enough to score one of their window tables) or take the short walk to the beach with our butcher wrapped sandwiches. Sooooo good!

We pre ordered sandwiches. They were ready when we arrived and were so big and full of all kinds of different salamis and cheeses! So big, you could hardly get your mouth around it. Just delicious!
