I went here with a girlfriend for the first time as it was convenient and a New Yorker friend recommended it. Well it was not their day. The order was wrong and a long black hair was in my sandwich-yuck!!!! When my friend returned it, as she wanted them to know, the girl behind the counter took the sandwich back... More

I returned to try them again after a disappointing visit and was pleased with the result. I ordered corn beef on rye and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of of the food. Tucked in an isolated shopping area, it is again worth a try. Ample meat and a tasty sandwich was worth the effort. If you want... More

So I am only rating this place lower then many for one reason this place advertises pastrami as their signature meet and they had none upon my visit. Their menu has quite a few sandwiches with pastrami so they quickly cut my choice down. Now the food and service was great. I ended up getting a meat variety sandwich which... More

Awesome sandwiches! Tried their tasty breakfast and lunch sandwiches and bread is always fresh. Both times I have been here w/ my family the wait was lengthy. I would say at least 15 min for a sandwich. They have quite a selection so be prepared to stare at the menu wall for a while. Now despite the wait, I would... More

Visited here for take out sandwiches for a trip to Cabrillo National Monument (we were staying at nearby Residence Inn). The choice was overwhelming (in a good way). Got served very quickly by a friendly waitress. You can opt for a 'half' or 'full' in either hot or cold sandwiches. We ordered 2 x 'half' and a 'full' with sodas.... More

We were in town for the SurfCup soccer tournament and went to lunch during the tournament. The sandwiches were absolutely incredible and the whole family enjoyed their meals. Highly recommend eating at this deli if you are near by.

Today my daughter and I had 2 different sandwiches at this deli. We both loved what we got. I had a hot sandwich with pastrami and turkey and cheese. My finicky daughter had the Brooklyn and wants to go back. The prices were about what you would expect at a nice deli but the sandwiches are definitely a step up... More

I stayed at the Courtyard San Diego Oceanside, a short walk from Gandolfo's. The deli is in a strip mall style row of businesses in an isolated area. There were no customers when I walked in at 7:30 PM. Three other patrons entered over the next 20 minutes. The clerk shared with one of them that they close at 8:00... More

This is a good deli unfortunately located in an isolated area. I've been there several times before and was impressed. This latest visit however was less than stellar. They did not have cornbeaf and said buying from market was too expensive. I had pastrami sandwich with extra meat. Although delicious, the extra meat was less than I remember from previous... More
