This place ROCKS! Cheeses, wines, breads, spaghetti and the best made to order sandwiches around. We drive a great distance to come here

Tucked away closer to the inner city, but well worth the drive for everything Italian. Their sandwiches and prepared foods are to die for. Best Italian deli not only in Fresno but the entire central valley!

Best sandwich in central Fresno. Arrive early bc the line is long after 1130 order sams special. If you do not arrive early thirty minute wait they are efficient and get your order completed when they call your number

Great food and sandwiches. Sam's has prepped food such as stuffed bell peppers that are fantastic. They also have lasagna, raviolis,and gnocchi packaged and ready for you to just heat up at home. Great deli with some unusual items as well as the standby. Also...More

Most people just take out, how ever, they have a small outside patio. The food is spectacular. If you like Traditional Italian food, then run to this great place.

In Fresno, California, Angela Marziliano and her son Nick celebrate the traditions of Southern Italy. From the San Joaquin Valley and beyond, customers have come to know Sam's Italian Deli and Market as their own door to Italy.
