“Awesome Grinders”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

My wife and I have been going to Nardelli's for quite a while now. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the quality food goes without saying; they've won best grinder in CT magazine for like 8 years in a row or something. If you visit Nardelli's, go hungry because the sandwiches are BIG!

Reviewed August 21, 2012 via Local Picks

Overrated indeed! I was expecting great things after all the wonderful things I'd heard about Nardelli's, but, at least in the Oxford one, I was disappointed. Most of your sandwiches are pre-made stuff that they just assemble once you pick it. No great Italian authenticity in anything. Their sides and desserts were expensive and frankly, you get better stuff at Stop n Shop's deli counter. They had my favorite Italian nougat candies too...but they were stale and hell! I'm perfectly willing to pay higher prices for a REALLY good meal...and this was far from it. This was overpriced, and as fast-food as you could possibly make a deli counter. BIG thumbs down. If you want a great grinder or salad, check out this little hole in the wall in Torrington called Alfredo's, or another in Torrington called Carbone's. THOSE are truly awesome sandwiches!!!

Reviewed May 15, 2012

Featured on the travel Channel, voted best grinders in CT. Magazine by readers, this is the Original shop location not a franchise. a lot of extras made on the premises, try their macaroni salad.
