My father and I recently visited here while on vacation. I built my own sandwich consisting of Prosciutto, Salami and spicy Copa on a baguette and my father had the Reuben. We both enjoyed our meal and the staff was great. A nice, quick stop...More

Located in the heart of the Old Oakland area this place is a long standing institution that continues to offer amazing selections of all that is good about Italian food. They also make wonderful sandwiches.

Great old building with a myriad of offerings included olives, wine, olive oils and much more. You can grab a sandwich and sit in the sun, or inside. Friendly and easy lunch option.

I was delighted to find that the delicious food (amazing soup and sandwiches) had not changed in 25 years. This is a long, long time winner in downtown Oakland. Wish I lived closer I'd make it a weekly lunch stop.
