Gianni's has been in Needham for well over 20 years and uses the best Boar's Head meets and the best fresh scali bread for sandwiches which taste amazing. And their chicken salad is delicious too.

Got a chicken parm sandwich, actually all 5 of us ordered chicken parm. It was pretty good. I would add more sauce & cheese, but otherwise tasty. What the deli calls a small, I woud call an extra large. I finished half the sub.
