This place isn't huge, isn't fancy and isn't something you should pass by!! They are genuine people making authentic and amazing food! Any place you can,get authentic desserts is a plus too!!

I would never consider this a deli if you visit for dinner. Reservation required, delicious 7 course meal, wine flows freely. What more could you want? I thought the aperitif was dessert and would have been completely satisfied. WOW! I guess I lost count of...More

True, it is a sandwich shop that was offering some catering when I was last there. The sandwiches are delicious. Saw some people picking up orders for a home party, I would liked a taste of everything.
Do you have any gluten-free bread?

Response from LittleItalyDeli | Property representative |
Sorry, no. I wish we did offer it. We do make our own bread daily, but unfortunately there is not enough hours in the day for everything we would like to do.
It used to be run by 2 brothers. I only saw one brother on my last visit?
