We visited on a Saturday morning and the line was out the door. Obviously a locals favorite. They had lots of help on hand to amnage the crowd. Their sandwiches are great but they also have other Italian dishes to take out.

Was visiting our daughter and wanted to try a place we had heard about but never sampled. Small, hole in the wall bakery. There are a few indoor tables and about six or eight outdoor tables. This seems to be a big takeout place however. While we sat outside there was a constant stream of folks coming by to pick... More

We always LOVED this place for Sandwiches and Panini's. However, today we ordered a Mozarella Caprese and guess what we found in it- a lovely piece of meat in it- identified as a piece of fish in the sandwich :( I am sooooo disappointed with them. They are so rushed at lunch time that I guess they are not as... More

We order at least once a week sandwiches. One sandwich can feed at least 3 people with hungry appetites. We have been a customers of Domenic's Italian Bakery for at least 5 years.

Awesome Italian eatery. Great pizza, sandwiches, salads with gorgonzola cheese, lasagna, chicken parmesan, everything is just homemade and awesome. Owners and workers are wonderfully pleasant always -

Definitely a favorite lunch spot. It can be really crazy with a long line but it moves along pretty well. Their eggplant parmesan, a pasta dish with a red pepper sauce, and a panini with greens, blue cheese and balsamic vinegar are some of my favorites here. The ciabatta bread is made in house and is absolutely delicious

One of my favorite lunch time spots! I love the Chicken Parm Sandwiches, the bread is incredible and made right there! I also have used them for catering on a few occasions and the Calzones are a great option!!

Domenic's is fantastic for homemade foods and is PACKED at lunchtime. I think that everything is amazing and my favorite is the eggplant parm sandwich. They also have some Hispanic foods which I also recommend! The "special" sandwich is worth ordering, especially if you are craving protein :-) Tip: Call in your order ahead of time for pickup!

Best Italian sandwich, I have ever eaten. I have chased Italian sandwiches across Boston. From the North End, to East Boston and Medford. Tried them all and I have found none better. Much more on the menu including hot sandwiches and some homemade soups, that I've tried. Five stars ! oh did I mention it's a bakery so their bread... More

For those looking for a quality sandwich with limited time. Domenic's is a great place to go. Typically I get the chicken parm or the arancini's, but there's plenty of great things here to grab for lunch.
