Best Italian Deli. Love their homemade hot salami. But if that's not for you, they have a big list of sandwich options. Fresh baked bread, fresh tasty meats and cheeses, toppings and condiments for any taste. I usually get their homemade hot salami with American...More

Great sandwich for the meat lover. Packed with flavor and good ingredients. I personally think it’s a little pricy but worth the try!

I was in town for a week and discovered by accident, was very happy I did. I returned for lunch a few days later. Service is friendly, food is delicious. I had different sandwiches on each visit and enjoyed them both.

I travel a lot and have eaten at every restaurant fine dining establishment. For lunch, you just want a sandwich sometimes and it didn't disappoint. Service was fast friendly asked the girls what was famous and did what they told me.

Came here with a lot of hype, but unfortunately it's nothing stellar. Don't get me wrong, the sandwiches are good, and the service is quick.

Really good hot sandwich. Line during lunchtime is CRAZY but it seems to move decently fast, and it just proves that the food there is worth the wait. I have been there when they sell out of specific items which is kind of a bummer....More

If you haven’t experienced a hot salami sandwich from Giolas.Deli then you haven’t had good eats. It’s a St. Louis experience. Not a fan of salami, the have hot beef and other great sandwiches.

No. This is an Italian deli. They never met bread they didn't like! they do have white and wheat and might have some other varieties. Their wheat is the best.
