I was on a business trip at the Long Beach Convention Center and on the last day found this deli to have a quick lunch before our flight. We were staying at the Renaissance Hotel and it was an easy walk from there. I had the tomato sausage soup and the panini sandwich special (ham and cheese). The soup was... More

A sub shop and Italian restaurant. Let Mario the chef tantalize your taste but with his garlic jalapeño meatballs...just outstanding!!! I've tried lots of the food over the years and it always fits the bill. Good home cookin' in a place that is frequented by the Long Beach Police, so it's a bonus you'll can also feel safe when dining... More

This is really an Italian / southern Mediterenean kitchen with reasonably priced, hearty fare. Dependable, not exceptional.

I read about this place and we decided to try it since we were near by. Food was done fast and it was very yummy. I got the pastrami with provolone cheese and mustard. It's a good size sandwich and I was very pleased. The employees are very friendly and courteous. The restaurant gets very packed and the restaurant offers... More
