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.

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

The Otto is one of the best Italian subs I've had. Plenty of flavor and the meat portions are great. I can also recommend the meatball sub. Their pasta salads are a great side. It costs more than a chain sub-shop but the product justifies...More
