“Not like it use to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We were at santin's in Reston just last week for lunch love the god father but this time the sandwich was not what it use to be. Lunch meat was stacked such that everything was sticking to get her like it was made as a packet and kept in the cooler to long more lettuce than meat nothing about the sand which appeared fresh. My wife also felt steak sandwich was not up to par. I thing the restaurant has grown to fast and quality control has been compromised

“New Yorker Ruben”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Looking for a great Ruben? Look no further than Santini's New Yorker sandwich. You can have it with sauerkraut or cole slaw. Plenty of space, plenty of TVs, and big menu. An order of fries are huge! Love this place!

So great to find great subs again! It's also nice to be able to watch ESPN while waiting for your food to arrive.

“Best deli in N. Va”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

Santini's New York deli is one of the few true delis in Virginia. If you are looking for healthy, vegetable offerings you are in the wrong place. Orders are taken by a revolving series of servers that will also prepare your choices in the kitchen and track you down to deliver your order.. Remember what you ordered because the cashier will ask at checkout.

Quick service,great sandwiches and dense, delicious chili are the mainstay of the deli, with soda, beer or wine available with a wide selection of deserts. Don't go here on diet.

“Ordinary food, not many healthy alternatives”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

I met friends here. It was quite noisy; school group there at the time. Order and pick up at counter, staff friendly and helpful. Salads were unappetizing, calzone was ok for that type of food. None of us would return to eat in, perhaps take out is ok if you like lots of cheese and meat.
