“Excellent Sandwiches!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I recently visited Zoccoli's with my daughter and her boyfriend, after saying I was in the mood for a good sandwich. They told me that this little Italian deli was their go-to place for sandwiches. It was a Saturday afternoon, and the place was busy, but the staff was very friendly and patient with this first timer, and the sandwich was outstanding. Fresh ingredients, great combinations of flavors and not so huge that you had to injure your jaw to take a bit. Yummy side salads and other treats -- even a top-quality selection of bottled sodas -- and this was a great choice for a fairly quick, reasonably priced lunch. I'll be back!

“Great, fresh Italian food”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This is a great place for lunch. They have really fresh and good Italian food. We sat outside and it was seriously busy there, so it took a while for our choices to be prepared. Ordering was easy; paying is what I was in a queue for for 15 minutes or so. The food more than made up for it though.

“Great place to pick up a sandwich”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

I was looking around for a place to pick up something for dinner around 6 pm on Pacific. Found this great delicatessen on the street. Great selection of items. I chose the meatball sandwich. It was so delicious. Sat outside and enjoyed Santa Cruz's unique ambiance. The price was reasonable and the staff was friendly. I would definitely go back.

“Big, tasty sandwich”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Big, tasty, italian style sandwich. Didn't knock my socks off, but you could taste each of the ingredients and everything seemed fresh and high quality. Consider splitting a sandwich if you haven't been surfing all day and worked up a pretty good hunger.

“Good sandwiches but Mac salad was soft”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Good modern day deli but swung and missed with the "old school" Italian. I can't recall visiting an Italian deli without mortadella. Macaroni salad was way overlooked and soggy.
