We had a great lunch when we went to Gioia's Deli. The tastes and service were excellent. You can't find a bad sandwich there - and the price is great too. So I know I'll be back cause one time there is just not enough.

We’ll look for an excuse to eat here again any time we come through St. Louis. Very tasty. Slightly expensive for size of sandwich, but uniqueness is worth it. Recommend it. Limited seating so you may need to take out if the weather is cold.

I read about their Hot Salami sandwich and it seemed like a one-of-a-kind type of sandwich. There was a long line out the door so clearly we had found the right place. The sandwich was delicious.

No. This is an Italian deli. They never met bread they didn't like! they do have white and wheat and might have some other varieties. Their wheat is the best.
