It is well worth standing in line for one of these masterpiece sandwiches that contain more ingredients than most delicatessens even stock. The preparation is a fun-filled show all by itself. The proprietor even tosses samples of cheese and prosciutto to those waiting in line....More

You can’t imagine if you don’t try. The Andrea’s sandwich isn’t only something to eat, it is something to live deeply. Borderi isn’t only a cheeses shop, it is a state of mind. In this place you can eat, chat, laugh drink eat and laugh...More
