With so many great options for fresh tasty grinders in town this one certainly runs in the competition. Pick your grinder and don't forget a side of their tortellini salad, marinated mushrooms or antipasto. Lunch is served!

I heard a lot of people talk about this restaurant before. But I have never been there. So I decided to give it a try. I ordered a grinder, all the toppings were fresh you could see it. They really packed it up with a lot of meat, there was no skimping! When I finally was able to eat that... More

Nardelli's specializes in Italian fare - so you can choose from one-two dozen (or more) freshly made salads and another 8-16 hot main dishes IF you can't choose from several dozen outrageous sandwich options. Desserts are pricey but killer toppers to your great Italian meal on the go. The counter help can be just average at times, but the food... More

I make a point to eat here when I am in Waterbury. The best grinders and Italian specialties in the area. Easy access from Rte 84. I always get the Italian combo with the works. A half sandwich is a meal. They also have their own label soda that is very good.

My husband ordered subs for a fishing trip and was very satisfied with the quality of the meats and cheeses and the generous portion of the subs.

Good sandwich. Didn't care for the default prep: hot sauce, black olives, sweet mustard. Too much schwing, competing with the rest of the ingredients on the sandwich.
