Description:  Family owned and operated since 1986 the Old Fashioned Italian Deli has dominated the corner of Littleton Blvd and S Delaware St for almost three decades. We don’t just make sandwiches, We create our masterpiece.  Heard that before? Check our reviews and then come by and check it for yourself. Come sink into one today!      Started by Tom Panzarella in the early 80's. Tom trying to capture the Chicago and Buffalo deli's he frequented from his youth he opened the OFID in Littleton Colorado. The deli is run by Tom and his son David and his soon to be wife Emily Ann Ward. They strive to make everyone feel at home when you come to eat. We pride ourselves on home made food. We make our own Meatballs, sausage, sauces, soups, pizza dough, fresh pasta salad and mac salad. We have our own master bread maker! We are known for our sandwiches hot or cold or create your own. We slice the meat fresh for all our hand made sandwich creations! Our Pizza Is a local favorite no chain gimmicks just great pie! We make our own house pizza sauce. We make the dough.

Reviewed August 23, 2012

The counter staff is friendly. The menu is large. The people who come and go appear to be repeat customers... "Everybody knows your Name". They have daily lunch specials and big, great tasting subs, heroes, hoagies or whatever you call them. The place on the inside is not why you go there. It is old, outdated and needs remodeling. The soda machine has produced bad tasting odd brand cola for a couple years. Come On... installing a couple vending machines would be a great improvement. Even Marilyn who is every where is showing her age. No air conditioning on the inside.

Will I go back... yes, cuz the food is good.
