We happened upon DiPratos while on a road trip from Florida to Tennessee and man did we get lucky! This place is awesome! Parking wasn't bad, even though they were quite busy. We had a 20 minute wait, but it was totally worth it. The...More

Di Prato's offers amazing eats and homemade delights that are sure to please any audience. The food here is always fresh and the staff is a delight. You have to try the homemade pita chips and pimento cheese! I'm not a fan of pimento cheese,...More

Everything is good. My usual is the po boy. Love the pimento cheese and pita chips too. Great for brunch or lunch, no dinner.

Columbi has many good spots but di pratos for Sunday brunch is a staple. Everything on their brunch menu is amazing and gives a generous portion. The cheesy potato casserole is to die for. Servers are always friendly and quick, even when it's super busy...More

While the food was excellent, the star here was our server. If NY Deli's are known for old obnoxious waiters, this place was the polar opposite. Our server was the funniest, warmest and sweetest thing! It made the experience truly memorable. I had pimento cheese...More

Our family had lunch here after picking our daughter up from USC. It was ranked pretty high by Trip Advisor so we thought we'd give it a try. It was mainly a sandwich shop and was just okay. I got a Chicken Philly which was...More

DiPrato's Delicatessen opened May 2004, and, today, the DiPrato's Experience affords patrons a rewarding escape from ordinary fare. The reward? Delectable food, beautiful décor, and a beguiling balance: friendly service and a pleasant, neighborly feeling. DiPrato's, located where the Purple Cow grocer operated, graces a quiet neighborhood barely off the beaten path. Driving up, you notice the rich red brick, set off by greenery, and spacious windows where light pours in. Approaching the wooden, double-door entrance, a thought comes to mind. You're about to enjoy the DiPrato's Experience. You could say a Southern breeze laden with Italian accents drifts through this New York style delicatessen. Dine if you like on the patio where the glassy splash of falling water melts away concerns. Pita chips and pimento cheese are a real treat! Blend Dianne Light and Bill Prato's presence and culinary skills and you get a wonderfully popular delicatessen-DiPrato's.
