They charged us 25% more for our panini's and there was barely any ingredients on the dry pane toscano. It's a shame to loose returning customers over a couple of Euro.

We had the best Paninis ever at "il Panino di Emilio". I had the "Polpettone" which was stuffed beef with pecorino cheese. It was great. My wife had "Salame" with sundried Tomatoes, pecorino cheese & pesto sauce also wonderful. Our friend Vonny had "Aringa" herring and vegetables. It was wonderful. We had red wine good and Beer to drink. The... More

After all reviews I have read, I expected something more. Meanwhile: cramped space, dirty table, family members (?) solving crosswords in the corner (in a noisy way), paninis are just mediocre and the lady behind the counter doesn't speak English (like some persons have suggested here) except some few single words. I have no high expectations concerning such places, but... More

We were staying nearby and stopped in to buy sandwiches to take home for lunch. Lovely and fresh paninis with a range of fillings to make up to your choice. Very good value and very good to eat!

We came across this place by accident. We were walking around the Greve square looking for a quick bite. It was fantastic. Easily the best sandwich we had in Italy. Whether it was the bread, the spreads or the ingredients, I can't honestly say, but the panino was superb!

We visited this place for breakfast due to its great review on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The lady working at the little sandwich deli is delightful. We asked her to recommend sandwiches and she whipped up a couple of delicious things for us. We are planning to visit this place again tomorrow.

If you just want a quick bite to eat in between visiting the vineyards in the area then you can't get a fresher better value snack than here. 2 very generously filled paninis came to 8 Euros. Parking is available in the square just a short walk away where you can also get a good value coffee. Top spot.

Found this little Italian diner on my way through Chianti. I was welcomed by a wonderful, friendly woman speaking flawless English. She recommended a panini with roasted pork, different kind of antipasti and pesto - which was one of the best things I had eaten during my whole trip through Tuscany! Simple food, very authentic, just what you expect from... More

For only 4€ they make you a fresh delicious sandwich. You can choose between all kinds of delicious meats, cheeses, vegetables and sauces. Like Subway but more fresh and more delicious.

We made a brief lunch stop in Greve in Chianti while driving around Tuscany and stumbled upon this cute little sandwich shop. The proprietor was a lovely, friendly woman who was very welcoming and kind (and suffered through our attempts at speaking Italian)! We were able to communicate just fine and ordered an Italian sandwich. The meat was plentiful and... More
