“Never Miss this place while in Wilmington”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

We live about 3 hours away from Wilmington, but never fail to stop here when we are driving through. The food is delicious with many choices from both cold meats and hot dishes. They also have a small shop with Italian specialties. We never leave without a bag or two of groceries.

“The best Italian deli in Wilmington”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Very good "Bronx,New York" style Italian specialties and food supplies. The eggplant parm wedge is as good as any I have had anywhere. Overall, the "go to" for Italian take away. Located near the University.

“Sauce to go”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

If you can't make it in to eat, grab some homemade sauce to go. It is delicious. The restaurant side of the store is very casual and people move in and out quickly. The food is good and authentic.

“Catering”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

I have had the food from this restaurant in a catered form and have always loved the pasta dishes. I have not gone in to have a meal at the actual restaurant
