“an incredible deli-café in little Italy, Ottawa”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Went to Sanguiccio Deli-Café for lunch, what an incredible place, just like such deli-café in Italy. The owner Genio is a great guy, has wonderful sandwich specials and great Italian drinks and espresso café. This deli-café has been featured in numerous magazines and papers, receiving great reviews. No wonder, the quality is tops, the owner makes his own bread from an Italian recipe giving you authenticity. Its a great place to relax and enjoy a great sandwich or salad. Everything is made on premises fresh, nothing artificial or frozen. Even the olive oil used in the preparation is premium. I highly recommend this deli-café, wonderful and very reasonably priced.

“Wonderful food, charming owner, great experience”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Let me be clear--this is a tiny place with a limited menu and slow service. But all of that is actually good, because it means the food is high quality, simple and made with the utmost care and the highest standards. The friendly owner serves just sandwiches and drinks, including excellent coffee. There are perhaps eight to 10 choices of sandwich, all served on outstanding artisan buns; I had rapini and goat cheese with a delicious tomato-onion-basil-pepper spread. My kids weren't familiar with all the cold cuts on offer, so guess what? He cut them thin slices of everything so they could make up their minds. They also loved the Italian lemonade and other sodas. I have no stake in this--I just stumbled across it on a restaurant site when looking for takeout on Preston Street. And I'm almost afraid to tell others about it because I don't want the place to be overrun next time I'm in Ottawa. But even moreso, I want to see such a great, small, caring business thrive so...go check it out!
