This is my favorite place to get food from in the Cleveland area. They have the best sub sandwiches I have ever had in my life. Not many of these kind of old school authentic Italian places left. People working there are very friendly and always talk with me. Thank you!

Food is excellent. Best subs and antipasti. Family owned and operated. I go every chance I get. Been going for 35 years. Love them.

– Jason Petkosek

I go there every week! Best pizza dough and ingredients to make one! The Italian sub is addicting. I feel at home when I shop there and everyone is super nice.
