The food is good, well-priced and served quickly. They did tell me that they do not make their own meatballs, which is kind of odd for an Italian deli. The big guy at the counter makes women feel uncomfortable. He calls everyone "hon" and comments on women's looks ("I only go for blondes"). Without him, I would stop by more... More

There are always a steady stream of customers coming and going. This italian deli has been here for years. Rosa and her family have continuouly owned and operated with the help of many long standing employees. Great for a sandwich or party platter.

We live around the corner from this place for years. It is the type of place that you go to for lunch on a Saturday, or a work day, or pick up a ton of food for the office. It is primarily a deli/grinder shop, with a cold case of salads and desserts, some hot foods, and some Italian knick-knacks... More

When you would like a grinder to go then Rosa's is the place to go. There is a large selection and all ingredients are fresh. You get great food for a good price.

Although Gigante's is commonly known as the go-to deli in Wallingford, Rosa's continually makes theses amazing sandwiches and grinders and even soups that make it our office's go-to spot at least 2x a week.

As a frequent traveler driving back and forth between NYC and Boston, I had been looking for a decent spot in the middle of the journey to rest and eat. Well, I think I've found the perfect spot. Rosa's Deli has great food and the service is excellent. I've tried the Meatball Eggplant ($8) and Turkey sandwiches ($5), both excellent... More

I've been here many times, the last time I went I asked for a ham and cheese hoogie wit mustard, it probably was the thinnest Sammie I have ever gotten! I hate to say it but I won't be back!
