We stopped by here on the way home and got some sandwiches to go. Great sandwiches, fresh cheeses and deli meats. There was a small wait but the service is friendly and helps with selections. The roma tomato and fresh mozarella sandwich was awesome! You can eat outside the Deli or take it to go. This is the best deli in North beach.

The day before we were to fly home my wife and I went to Molinari's to get sandwiches for our flight. They make sandwiches to order on your choice of bread (literally-you pick it out of a basket and hand it to the counterman) a dizzying array of meats, cheeses, condiments (eg artichoke hearts)pesto spread etc. He wrapped it well and it was just as good after being in the fridge all night. And all for $6.95.

There was a long line, but watching these guys was a lot of fun. The eggplant sandwich was wonderful. We Will definitely return. Be sure and try the fresh mozzarella!

The Molinari family has been making great sausage & salame since the late 1800's. The store is located in the North End area. The deli has a great selection of meats, home-made salads, bottles of wine & many imported products from Italy. When you enter take a number & be prepared to wait. The place is busy but runs efficiently by a great fun staff. The menu has various sandwiches to choose from but we made our own. Near the counter is a bread box where you pick your bread for your sandwich. The bread is soft on the inside with a nice hard crust on the outside & is perfectly sized. We had an Italian sandwich with various meats & fresh mozzarella. The sandwich was stacked & very delicious. One of the best authentic Italian sandwiches we have ever tasted. We shared it between the two of us at an outdoor cafe nearby with a glass of wine. The deli doesn't have any seating inside. Molinari's is open Mon-Sat approx 8am-6pm.
