Amato's Italian is a gift to the world. We've been eating them for 50+ years. The meats and veg are fresh. The roll is just right - not too large like typical subs. Gotta get one if you're in Portland.

An absolute JOKE! I ordered a large Italian sandwich and to my surprise I unwrapped this surprisingly light hoagie and discovered 1 piece of ham and 1 piece of cheese. Peppers and black olives must have been on sale from their wholesaler as the sandwich...More

There is nothing special about the building or the Take-out Sandwich Shop - no eat-in but plenty of people coming and going. We have gone by this well known Italian Sandwich Shop but had not gone in until yesterday. We were pleasantly surprised with the...More
