Lol this is a good sandwich but 1000% not the best in town. It is just a famous sandwich place that tourists like to eat at. Good sandwich for sure! But nowhere NEAR the best.

Grab your bread of choice, hand it to the person behind the counter and pick any sandwich - they're all amazing and delicious. Highly suggest eating it as it comes - don't substitute or remove anything or you'll lose a ton of the delicious flavor....More

A little deli with the best sandwiches in this area. They are freshly made for each customer. You can choose between different kinds of bread, meat and cheese.

Their sandwiches are transporting, but the sweet or hot Sicilian sausages are amazing. Regular Italian sausages will never be good enough after these bad boys. I cook them whole in a sauce made with Molinari pancetta and serve on soft polent (Marcella Hazan), but they’re...More

I've been buying sandwiches from Molinari's Delicatessen for over 35 years. I keep coming back to North Beach and heading straight to Molinari's for my favorite cured beef tongue! I can't imagine going anywhere else. Great people, great selection, great food, and great experience!

Among many other delicacies that’s why I go to Molinari’s Deli in North Beach. I wish it were a sit down Restaurant, they offer awesome Freshly made sandwiches.

I was raised working in an authentic Italian Deli and this one is even better with all the trimmings! Make a trip to taste and smell all the authentic stuff!

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

Sorry I never noted any gluten-free foods there - wasn't a focus for me. They might sell some gluten-free uncooked pasta; but don't believe their deli foods selections (sandwiches or salads) have a gluten free... More
