Great food grinders, salads, wraps they have it all quick service in and out. I have my concerns about how professional Corp is. I bought a few Gift cards for Christimas and they were all reused. I told the girl I can't give someone a used card, she told me it's a gif card I don't understand what he big... More

What attracted us to stop at Nardelli's was the billboard "Exit 25, Easy Off, Easy On"...at least the first part was correct. Had to drive 4 miles to get back on the highway. Being from the south, I was the only one in our party who knew that grinder was just another name for a sub. Since they have been... More

Squeaky clean place, foods beautifully arranged for selection into enormous, yummy grinders. "Works" includes diced veggies and hot sauce, all recommended. Half-grinders are large enough for two. Great side salad (unless you really don't like green pepper, which was abundant), blue cheese dressing was first-rate. Amazingly, three of the ten Trip-Advisor top-rated restaurants in Waterbury are all adjacent!

The food is delicious and when I went I had excellent customer-service. They get the sandwiches made super quick. I love that they have a variety of options to choose from! The only problem is that they are expensive.

They do make big sandwiches but the prices are high. Customer service the couple times I went was terrible.

I have to eat Gluten free and their rolls are some of the best I've ever eaten. I actually bought a case of them for home because they are so good. As for the food prepared in the shop, they are very attentive to detail and even prepared my sandwich in a separate area with clean utensils. They have so... More

Don't know what it is but Nardelli's, here or at any of their franchise locations, has THE best grinders bar none! Their bread is soooo good. Crisp crust with chewy inside. The perfect complement to any choice of fillings. Now they are offering a gluten free option so even those with sensitivities can still enjoy a sandwich here. Yay! Big... More
