Who's got the best Italian sub?


#121

I don’t know where it came from and it certainly wasn’t cheap but I got a quarter pound or so of pre-sliced mortadella from them that was a revelation.


#122

It’s definitely mass produced and way too high in sodium. I just don’t think it’s horrible. In fact, I like their pickles and think the natural casing franks are some of the best around.

Have you tried some of the local butchers like A Cut Above in Santa Monica? Also, I’m not sure if Gjusta sells their cold cuts by the pound, but the Italian sandwich there is off the hook.


#123

hush.


#124

It’s not like they are running out of anything.
Or, like me, perhaps are you more than a little concerned that - if word got out - it would be harder to gobble up all the free bread, cheese, oil, and balsamic samples? :fearful:


#125

True. My supply of Italian cheeses is probably safe. Probably . . .
I definitely appreciate those gratis loaves of bread they sometimes hand out, too!


#126

Okay, NOW you’ve got my attention!

WTF??? This place sounds like heaven…


#127

Okay. Secret is fully out, I suppose.
Cash for <$50.
Olive oil, dried pasta, and cheeses are the main reason to come, but the people are why you return. So friendly and they are a wealth of info once you get them talking.
Must approach from the east travelling on Olympic.


#128

Do you mean Granada Hills, or did they open up a second location?


#129

#130

Yah definitely agree. :slight_smile: FYI, Gjusta is now making all of their cuts for the Italian Sandwich in-house (of course they are! LOL. They’ve been mastering so much stuff these days, it’s crazy).


#131

So this is totally different than the Italia deli in Granada Hills? It’s odd that they have the same name, and are relatively close to each other.

Edit: One is Italia Deli & Bakery, and the other is Italia Bakery & Deli. So weird…


#132

this place looks like a carbon copy of San Carlo.


#133

Italia’s been around for years. We used to go there for sandwiches and catering before we moved closer to San Carlo.


#134

One of our more socially active Alfa Romeo club members lives out in Chatsworth, and the yard-long sandwich from San Carlo is on the table whenever he and his wife throw a party, or even just an after-event pool gathering. He also shows up at event picnics, especially the annual Best of France & Italy in Woodley Park, with a large assortment of salads, cheeses and cold cuts from there. I have to say that of all the lavishly salad-dressed soft-roll Italian subs I’ve had, theirs are my all-time favorites … though Claro’s are more than okay, and a lot easier to get to from Pasadena!


#135

The Grinder at Scout is very very good.


#136

Large Prosciutto & Fresh Mozzarella sandwich on crispy roll, but wait for a hot afternoon and eat it outside. San Carlo is real.


#137

Any good grinder or Italian subs in the San Gabriel Vallley?


#138

Slim pickings.

Either Santa Fe Importers (in Irwindale) or one of the many Claro’s locations.


#139

If you ever find yourself near Montebello, Tony’s makes a pretty great Italian sub.

What’s good at Dan’s super subs?
