Family owned and operated since 1926 Litteri's is a true DC landmark. Pick up a sub or pizza for lunch or dinner. They have a great variety of pre-made pasta for you to take home and cook or all the ingredients you'll need to make your own Italian meal. You must get their meat balls and or homemade sausage.

If you're staying locally - Northeast sector - A.Litteri is a suburban Italian gem behind a nondescript facade. Do go in to find pasta, sauces, cheese, sausage and fantastic wine. All with an Italian theme and very reasonably priced.

excellent products and very helpful staff. Grab a sandwich because they are excellent. Take home sausages because they are excellent. Usually to find product like this you have to drive to NY or Philly.

Aside from great heros and my fav is the meatball sub, the balsamic vinegars and virgin olive oil selection for us cooks is the joint. Also if you love the tonno from Italy and anchovies this is the place to get them. LOVE Liteeri

Fax your order in to save time! Fed my team (15) with each being able to order their own sub. Terrific.

DC institution that is showing its age in a time where more is expected of even basic comfort food. In contrast, Bub and Pops gets that and does a more modern take on comfort subs of the same variety better. Sub rolls were not all that great if supposed to be authentic Italian bread rolls. Lunch meats were cut too... More

We went here with some friends who have known the current owner since 1973. The store is located right next to Gallaudet University in a semi-seedy line of warehouses. But appearances can be deceiving! Once inside the store you will be greeted with an enormous selection of olive oils, pastas, cheese, wines and other gourmet items. The deli is fantastic... More

This place is best for sandwiches is DC better yet the best in the DMV! The meats and breads are so so fresh and delicious! The lunch time is very busy but it is well worth the wait! You will not be disappointed with your sandwich! Family owned and the staff is friendly and accommodating! Love..Love this place for sandwiches!

The food is worth the search! You can speak English Italian Spanish or sign. Galaudet University is next store with Hotel rooms for the public. Wine and olive oil tastings are a regular thing. A great example of knowing where to go. Now you do.
