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.

Went there with friends and ordered a fabulous vegetarian Italian sandwich. Flavor reminded us of old style Grinders we used to get in Southern California. We'd go back again. The restaurant was busy, but move very quick.
