This was our first visit here. The staff was very helpful in assisting us on what to order, although I can't imagine not liking anything from this place. It is small and can be crowded, but this just adds to the "coolness" of the shop. We will be back. They also have a food truck.

They just won a James Beard award. Stop in for a visit, and you'll understand why. Our first visit, we all had to try the hot salami. I can't believe my wife even loved it, and she doesn't even care for salami! We can't wait to go back. Make sure to sign up for the "word of the week" email... More

The hot salami sandwich should be on the to-try list of everyone who lives by or passes through the area. I usually order it on garlic cheese bread with pepper jack cheese. Totally worth every calorie.

Gioia's is the best deli in St. Louis hands down. My whole family loves it from the hot salami my personal favorite to the meat ball my oldest loves it. Its about a 15 to 20 minute drive for us but so worth it.

This is my kind of place. Really funky and takes you back in time. We decided to go eat lunch on the Hill and drove around and saw Gioia's Deli and decided to give it a try. What a great place to stumble onto. This place is probably the same as it was when it first opened. It's small and... More

My son and I love to come here for lunch. He always gets the Porknado...ham, hot salami, and bacon with Swiss. I go back and forth between the meatball and the hot salami. Both are delicious. Hot, fresh, and fast. Staff is courteous and friendly. We will be back....next time for the New York Philly! Highly recommended!

Ok, here’s the old town Deli you’ve been looking for… just skip the others. Seriously… we had so many places to choose from to grab lunch during our last visit to St Louis, but this one caught our eye. We wanted something fast and simple, get in, get out, fresh. BAM! Nailed it! It was like stepping back in time... More

This classic sandwich shop is amazing. They hand out samples of their warm salami sandwich....and they hook you. It's a no frills place with great service, friendly help, and amazing sandwiches. Don't miss it!

Went here because I saw all the folks standing in line out the door. Sandwiches are superb. Any sandwich, but I had their in-house made salami and boy, what a meal! See my picture. Small interior, but pleasant counter staff and plenty of people wanting to take your order and move the line so everyone gets their food in a... More
