We miss Wilmington - for the FOOD! I was born and raised here. When we go home to DE from SC, we MUST get a Bobbie. Fresh roasted turkey with dressing, cranberry sauce & mayo on a fresh baked roll. HOW can you go wrong? A simple turkey and provolone is anther favorite. Our go-to place for turkey and cheesesteaks.... More

My sister and I were looking for a place for lunch while visiting Wilmington. We saw that this place was highly rated. We had wanted to eat in but this is only take out. It was quite busy. We choose to share a turkey sandwich. The food was very good and prices were very reasonable. Half a sandwich left us... More

Being from Brooklyn NY. It is very hard to beat our home made sandwiches . The Cole Turkey was better than the Italian sub The crab soup was very good as well.

Came for lunch and it was just okay. With all the great sandwich and steak places in the area this place is not worth the trip.

Capriotti's started here (on Union Street in Wilmington) in this side by side store front. The owners produced wonderful sandwiches and delivered them at a deli counter family style. Subs have the correct crisp sub roll and the "Bobbie" is a Thanksgiving feast on a roll.

Fresh meats and cheeses, rolls that melt in your mouth, perfect seasonings, a wide variety of toppings... what more could you ask for? Thesse pros deliver their sandwiches with a smile. You cannot help but have a great day!

Have been there twice....not going again. I just had the sense that cleanliness was not a priority Looking at the floors, counter areas, and staff, I candidly didn't feel comfortable. I gave it a second try and my opinion was reconfirmed. Prices are fair, but there's too much completion for subs/steaks in the area not to be particular!

This is probably the best place to get a sandwich in Wilmington. Great subs and fairly priced. It's also fun to see Wilmington's Little Italy, where the take-out restaurant is located.

Capriotti's original location on Union St. is still the best place to purchase hoagies, cheese steaks and the "Bobbie" = Thanksgiving on a roll. When ever you are in need of the ultimate comfort food, order a "Bobbie" - hand pulled turkey (never sliced), stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayo. Their Italian hoagie is also full of top quality meats and... More

If you have not had a Capriotti's sub, you have not yet had a sub. They have both ordinary and extraordinary home- grown creations.
