We had had a very long day and didn't want to cook supper so we stopped here. The sign said the grinders were the best...and they were. The staff was friendly and the subs absolutely delicious. Definitely coming back.More

It's stunning that some people complained about Nardelli's Grinders. I guess it's tru you can't please everyone all the time. I've been going to Nardelli's for years, both in Naugatuck and Waterbury. At all times, the Grinders are made fresh with almost too much to...More

With so many great options for fresh tasty grinders in town this one certainly runs in the competition. Pick your grinder and don't forget a side of their tortellini salad, marinated mushrooms or antipasto. Lunch is served!More
