This used to be a place for a real treat if you like Italian Deli meats and foods. The service is still excellent and the food is good, but they no longer use premium meats and the taste change is evident. I've been a going to this deli for many years and it a disappointment to see the change. Still a very good sandwich shop, just no longer extraordinary. I don't know if the great meatballs are still there, but I doubt it. Cost cutting by new owners show lack of understanding of what made this place a destination.

D'Anna's has the great sandwiches, pastas and salads. Great selection of drinks as well. Their food is fresh, generous and delicious. They have a sweet little patio to enjoy your food outside and is in heart of Soquel Village. Highly Recommend

This Deli is one of the best in the Santa Cruz area. They make the best Panini's!!!! Good sandwiches and salads too. They have a nice patio area if you don't want to be inside. Service is fast and friendly. Prices very reasonable.

D'anna's has Ben serving up good italian food and great deli sandwiches in Soquel for many years. Go there and you'll likely see D'anna in the kitchen cooking up something delicious and Gino working the sandwiche bar. One of the local favorites in the surf'n bird.
Just go get one!
This place is tucked away behind a lot of shrubbery in a little courtyard on Porter street. Awesome "locals" spot.
