Il Vecchio's used to be the only place I would get a sandwich in Penticton. We went this week and ordered two sandwiches and two tiramisu. The bill was $37.00. The sandwiches had one small leaf of lettuce, one thin slice of each of the...meats ordered and one thin slice of cheese. Their other toppings were also very limited - one tiny piece of artichoke heart, no sun dried tomato and not enough mustard to even taste it. Horribly disappointing. I get that prices have gone up on ingredients and that one of two things needs to happen in restaurants for them to still make ends meet-you cut portions or raise prices-but not both if you want to keep customers. Guess we will have to find another deli for sandwiches.More

It took a while because there was a line, now I know why. An incredible number of choices available. I chose 2 meats and a cheese and was not disappointed. Delicious.

We decided to share a few things , 1 , the tomato Bonnicconcini salad. It was all tomato, 2 pieces of cheese sliced in half in a 1/2 cup bowl , not worth it. The Rueben, bun was good , it was all sauerkraut, 2...slices of Montreal smoked meat, not worth $11. The little 1/2 cup of pasta salad that came with it was ok. Unfortunately It was crazy busy on a Tuesday and things were being whipped together haphazardly to get it done and took 30 mins to get this take out order. Also , the big issue for me, the gent making sandwiches had to run out the door to hand deliver a sandwich someone forgot and went right back to handling meat upon return. I will not return here. My honest viewings. Also, too bad and this isn’t restaurants fault, they seem to have some losers hanging around outside making rude comments to their customers.More

So good. You just pick the number of meats and cheese you want and add on the sauce. Fantastic. Was the perfect grab and go meal for the long drive back home.

just try and leave with only a sandwich, so many interesting items on the shelves I have yet to manage that. Great custom created sandwiches to pack in your bag for the day at the beach or trip home

Growing up in east van I often ate sandwich's in little Italy's shops on Commercial Drive and Il Vecchios makes one of the best sandwich's I have ever eaten. There are a handful of exceptional places to eat in Penticton and this little sandwhich shop...hidden on a back street is one of them.More

A must try if you're in Penticton. Not just your regular sandwiches, built the way you like it with artisan ingredients. Don't forget the pepperoncinis.

Have always loved the sandwiches here. I think it’s time they start accepting credit/debit. I understood the cash only policy when a sandwich was only $3 but their prices are more in line now.

heading out of town for a sporting event and needed something that suited. had driven by here the previous day, the noticeable dark green building which catches ones eye, and realized it had fallen off my radar. from out of town, so don't get a...chance to sample going out often. arrived to a few patrons ahead of me. i choose the 2 meats and 2 cheeses. big fat sandwiches, filled with lettuce and tomatoes and banana peppers. wrapped up in brown paper upon completion. they only accept cash, which i rarely carry, but luckily i had a $20.00 bill which cover the $18.00 bill, amazing price for 3 lunches! people lined up behind me when i left. didn't have the opportunity to explore the shelves stocked with good looking items. need to pay for metered parking on the street also, so be prepared for those 2 facts. i was going to savour my sandwich over the drive to kamloops but once i started i kept eating till the last bite! must make sure i return sooner than later on my next visit. obviously a winner as its been in business for a long time. friendly and efficient staff. i was a happy customer!More

IlVecchio’s! Simply THE best sandwich made to order exactly like mamma makes! You will likely wait in line like many locals in the know but it is always fast and well worth it! Enjoy and it will become your fast favorite lunch place and deli!
