This place has made subs and sandwiches before anyone ever thought of Subway or Cousins or any other sub shop! The bread is Great! The fillings simple, but perfect. The dressing is the best. I've been grabbing lunch here for over 40 years!

This is an amazing little Italian store that's been around for 47 years! Why? How? Because they have excellent customer service from knowledgeable staff. We spent near an hour talking with owner about sausage making, sausage casings, and a crash course in pizza making. So...More

From the porketta to their fabulous sub sandwiches (meat lovers try the Otto!) to their Italian sausage, sauce and pastas, There's a reason they're a tradition and the best in Dane County. Tasty food at reasonable prices.

Had the large Italian sub and it had little flavor. Soft squishy bread, ordinary meats and cheese, a couple of pieces of lettuce and a very little amount of dressing. No onion, no tomato and no spice. Very disappointed.

Always come here when we visit Madison. Great sandwiches, good coldcuts, great olive selection and always pick up a frozen Porchetta for enjoyment at home on a weekend. Good place for olive oils and cheeses too.

Frabonis and Ginos are the two preeminent Italian Grocery and sub shops in the area that I know of and they are both very similar. I would give the slight nod to Fraboni's for the location and customer service but they are both solid. Mostly...More

Olive oils, pastas, cheeses and some pre-made frozen stuff too. This place is on the edge of what used to be the Italian Neighborhood before it was all torn down for 'Urban Renewal". This place and the nearby Greenbush Bar are only a few of...More

Love this place. I have been gong to this store since I was a young kid. The Fabroni brothers, Steve and Gary and their sister Rose are all involved in the business. Sandwiches are good and the Porketta is to die for. I never leave...More
