I used to stop in here several times a week when I was younger (this place has been around at least 25 -30 year); and, lately I have been visiting again as it now near my office. They have a great selection of sandwiches, niche food and drinks, and great deserts. Not to mention, the value is excellent for what... More

I don't want to do this review as I will help contribute to this place being overcrowded but it is one of the best Deli's you are going to find west of the Mississippi river. As others have stated they have a huge selection of Italian food that must be nearly impossible at least in Arizona to have as large... More

As always is so amazingly Italian! You can get products you just can't get at any grocery store. Real Italian products. You won't find any cans of Spaghetti-O,s here! Only the real deal. The kitchen produces amazing food and the cannolis are amazing! If you need some fun Italian style tee shirts, they have many to choose from plus hats... More

We are originally from back east.. Currently visiting from Tucson and was hoping to find good... Real.. Italian food. We were not disappointed! The aroma when we entered brought tears of wonderful memories. We left with our arms full of fantastic food and are hearts filled from the good souls that work there! We will be back. Ciao

I think a good portion of the police and fire department personnel were eating lunch while we were here! Very good hot Italian beef sandwich--and enough food to split with another person. Counter service with limited seating, but great sandwich options. Will have to go back to try the pasta....

On a recent spring training trip my husband and rented a house. While the house had a full kitchen, we preferred good deli take out to preparing our own meals, given the limited time we had. What a great find. The sandwiches are huge, and the hot food bar amazing. The Italian market itself is fun to browse.

Romanelli's has so many good things, sausages, meats and cheeses, sandwiches, pasta, etc. But you have to try their Marinara Sauce that they bottle. Grab a few off the shelf and try it next time you want good sauce at home. It's the only sauce we don't have to doctor up with our favorite ingredients, its great right out of... More

Romanelli's is the real deal. If your looking for Italian treats, homemade sausages, meats, cheeses, pasta, etc., you come here. It's not fancy, but the staff is friendly and the owner is a delight to talk with. What a neighborhood place should be. If your looking for a good sandwich, try something from the deli counter, you will soon find... More
