We have been going to Compagno's since 1997 when we were stationed in the military at DLI. It has always been awesome. The cake slices are insane! Sandwiches are fresh and the sourdough is amazing. The owner always gave the military guys a break. I swear there was no way he was charging me for all of the food I... More

Compagno's is a Monterey legend. Fantastic military theming exists throughout the store providing a fun visual treat while waiting for one's order. The deli sandwiches are nothing short of fantastic -- fresh, locally baked bread and top quality meats and cheeses highlight these HUGE sandwiches.

My turkey sandwich with avocado and bacon was so delicious. It was seriously one of the best sandwiches I have ever had- just pure quality ingredients. Take your sandwich and head down to the water for a nice picnic with a view.

Outstanding, huge Deli sandwiches with lots of meat. A whole sandwich is more than enough for two people. Recommend you share. Owner is very friendly and shakes everyone's hand and has a discussion with them.

We order from this deli every time we visit Monterey. Bennett Compagno (owner) and his workers make the best sandwiches--big sandwiches! We always get our sandwiches to go but they do have limited seating to eat inside and outside. Bennett is the nicest person and he makes all customers feel welcome. I like that he has sandwiches named after all... More

Bennett, the owner, is a wonderful man with a true passion for his business. I also love that he's pro military and law enforcement. Whenever we visit Monterey, we always stop to grab a sandwich and give him the business. Huge and yummy sandwiches and cakes

As title recommends, the menu is so extensive with so many decisions to make that you best know what you want before you stand in line! Bennett man's the cash register and is friendly once you break the ice with him. The sandwiches are around $13 but they are big enough to share. If you are a beer drinker, you... More

I love sandwiches, that is good deli sandwiches. I have been to many on both coasts of the US. My favorite located on the Atlantic side of this country. So, in planning my trip, I saw this deli and the good reviews it received. I was excited, finally something that could potentially quench my hunger for a good deli sandwich.... More

Ok so maybe my nostalgia is getting the best of me. As a poor broke A1C racking my brain out learning Korean at the Presidio this place nourished my soul. Walking distance from the baracks. Food was delicious and nutritious. You can feed you and a date on a dime with left overs. We were easy to please back then.... More

We miss this place (former PG eesedents)! The owner, the fresh selection of deserts, the ample portions and how military friendly it is. Amazing beer selection too. Can't wait to go back.

Thank Oceandria
