When we're downtown, and want a quick lunch, this is the place. Sandwich, chips, and a soda. We sit out front and do a little people watching on the mall.

This deli have very nice selections of sandwiches, salads, wines, international beverages, cheese, etc. You come in - take a number, order like at a deli counter in a supermarket and then wait for your meal. We had chicken sandwiches which had full on chicken breasts. The bread - very good - we even purchased a sour dough loaf to... More

The family was strolling through Santa Cruze and needed a place a light lunch. Zoccoli's was exactly what we wanted. The boys each had their own sandwiches, while wife and I shared. Good was good, price was right, and service was prompt even with the throng of people standing in line.

This place is packed with great sandwich choices, Italian food, salads and people. Crazy busy at lunch time, but worth it.

This family owned sandwich shop on the main strip, with an Italian twist, has been making consistently fresh and delicious sandwiches. There is a very good selection of suggested sandwiches and build your own. In addition, it has a deli, selection of olives, lasagna, all sorts of drinks, and salads. 😋😋 It has a very cute outdoor seating area to... More

Bread was just a little tough. Prosciutto was really good and cheese tasted very nice. Great area for outdoor seeing to people watch. Refills on tea and soda. Also noticed a lot of people buying bottles of wine, must have a nice selection. Would definitely go back.

Have eaten here before a few years ago, so decided to try it again. Delicious deli sandwich. This place is usually busy so you might have to wait, but worth it.

I just ordered a sandwich there but it was creative (salami with artichoke spread, cheer and italian dressing). Felt like something from the past. Smells great there.

The service is good, and the atmosphere pleasant. If you are expecting a NYC deli--and what other kind is there?--this is not it, however. They cannot make grilled sandwiches: they only have a microwave. No toasted or grilled cheese, no real "Ruebens", etc. That said, the food is good.
