This is a deli that is famous for the large sandwiches & cake slices popular with the area's military language school. We stopped by one day to check it out. They are busy and you need to know the system. When you go in you...More

We visited Compagno's Market and Deli today for lunch. This is by far our absolute favorite Deli in Monterey County. Be warned...the sandwiches are HUGE. A half sandwich is what I would consider a whole sandwich at most places. We typically order a half sandwich...More

We've read the rave reviews about this Pacific Grove "deli" and "market". Yesterday, while in Pacific Grove, and since our favorite PG Lighthouse Ave. sandwich shop is closed on Sunday, we went to Compagno's. Glad we tried it...we will stick with our original favorite spot...More

For the 5 years I've known my husband he has talked about the "huge delicious sandwiches" he used to get when he attended DLI. Today I finally got to try one of those sandwiches (Navy Special) and I can say it was not overhyped! Delicious!

No joke, these sandwiches are giant and made from the best breads, meats and cheeses. The cake is also fantastic!

Food was as the reviews read, but this warming heart felt charmer Mr Bennet, was a fictional character. He was curt, annoyed, and was not the person we read about in previous post. They were out of their famous flat bread, but the other options...More

Absolutely wonderful little deli, but beware! Lunch time on weekdays means DLI soldiers & staff come pouring off base for lunch...and quite a few of them head straight to Campagno's. The owner has made good friends with many soldiers who have passed through DLI, and...More

We visited this deli to purchase sandwiches for picnic. I choose their "Navy special" as suggested by some review, which was right choice. I asked cut it half to share with my wife. It is worth paying $12.99 for whole sandwich.

Yes, just walk out Taylor street and it’s at the intersection of that stop light.
