And that's not the worst of it. But first things first: I dig Italian. Italian food, Italian delis, Italian restaurants, Italian music, shortly, Italian stuff altogether. As such, I am always on the look for something Italian. Niccoli's advertises in all the local Phoenix-Scottsdale papers and magazines, plus it's listed on TA. That's how I found it. To begin with,...

I think they mostly continue to be successful by word of mouth although I do see some advertising once in awhile. Their customer base is loyal and I feel intergenerational. Their location is in what could be considered an upscale shopping mall, but unless you were specifically looking for them, they are easily missed. This would be your loss as... More

Hands down, the best sandwiches in town. Joe and Peppi have been here for years and the love is in the food! Not a sit-down place for lunch or dinner. Take it with and go to heaven on the taste! Everything is super-fresh and incredibly good! You'll wait for a few minutes (call ahead if in a hurry) but it... More

Well, first of all, I owe the two nice ladies working there today an apology. We were hungry but not very familiar with the neighborhood. We were trying to decide what we wanted for lunch. We stumbled on Niccoli's and my husband went in "to get a menu." I was reading and thought he seemed to be taking a long... More

Forget about chain sub joints. This is without a doubt the best authentic sub sandwiches in Phoenix. So if you happen to be staying here for whatever reason and you want a great sandwich, Greek salad, meatballs, or any number of other great dishes, seek out Niccoli's. It's just a small deli market, but it's worth your time. They have... More

This deli and pizza place has won accolade's from the New Times for "Best Italian Deli" so we decided to give it a try. The place is in a small strip mall and has an eating area located "next door". So, you order your food and walk thru a door into a dining area. The dining area features a flat... More

The bread comes out of the oven at 11:30 everyday. The meat as are big and delicious. Real authentic Italian food. It's not about the atmosphere but all about the food. Carry out.

Hard to believe that the Phoenix metro area is so lacking in real Italian delis and sub shops, but this one is a gem. By far the best Italian subs in the Valley and well worth a 40-minute drive from Mesa. Great deli meat, cheese and veggies on every item, but stick to the basic Italian and you will never... More

We live in Mesa, but were in Phoenix and wanted a tasty Italian sandwich & not a chain. My husband had heard about this place a few months ago, so it was the destination. Oh my, what an awesome place! Small, sweet deli that reminds me of the Italian deli my dad has loved for years. Lots of authentic Italian... More
