Recently stopped by as we like to visit DDD places when traveling. Hidden in the back of an Italian grocer with a few tables for diners it is worth finding. The house wine was excellent (16.00/bottle). The salads were good. We shared a squash lasagna which was excellent and came out on two plates as they knew we were sharing. Nice touch that many restaurants don't offer. Chatted with folks at the next table who raved about there two sandwiches and a huge, and I mean huge calzone. The gal ate about 1/4 of it and thought they remaining leftovers would be a meal for three as lunch the next day. Will visit here again.

Delicious deli, only had the sandwiches and some sides but they were all delicious. Friends who have tried the pastas and other items also rave about them. Favorite is hands down the cheesesteak....oozy, cheesy, super fresh and surprisingly one of the best I've had in AZ. Gets very busy during lunchtime so get there early or call ahead.

Found this place on a recent trip to Phoenix and searching for Diners, DriveIns and Dives (Guy Rules!)... This place doesn't disappoint. Had a Chicken Parm sandwich and an Italian salad. The sandwich was piled high with chicken, sauced up with marinara, and the bread was still crisp (even after a 15 minute car ride back to the hotel). The salad... great also!

Go here... Order up... Mangia!

This is a really unique combination of a small grocery and deli. I was here for lunch. What you will find is a vast array of sandwiches made to order. You place your order at a small window and then take a seat at one of the tables scattered throughout the dining side of the grocery while your meal is being prepared. A server will bring your order to your table upon completion. This trip I had the Italian beef sandwich loaded with every type of cooked green, red and hot pepper they had along with the mandatory cup of au jus, It came on a large, fresh and tasty Italian bread roll. Delicious!!

If you don't care about atmosphere but want some goods eats, this is the place. DeFalco's is an Italian grocery store with a restaurant in it. You order at the counter and they bring the very tasty food to you. They do serve wine.There is an outside patio as well. Not fancy...but a great find.
