What an experience! We could not believe the amount of beautiful ingredients that we crammed into one enormous sandwich. The cheese was amazing, the veg sublime, and the meat mouth-watering. It was very entertaining watching him crafting them. He seemed like a very nice guy, and he kept the queue happy by feeding them titbits. Not to be missed!

This place was recommended by some fellow travelers and their description left my wife and I with high expectations. They did not disappoint! The staff is funny and generous, making the wait entertaining and exciting. My wife is lactose intolerant and they were totally accommodating (and comically showed true sympathy for her loss). They actually made us two different half... More

Amazing sandwich with so much cheese, meats, herbs and greens, that 1/2 sandwich was enough for dinner and I saved the rest for lunch the next day. Delicioso and highly recommended. We went at 14:00 so the queue was not too long. You can eat for an entire day on 5€!

This place is located in the daily market in a corner of Ortigia nestled amongst the fish and food stalls. You won't miss it because there is a queue of people outside observing the pure theatre of watching these sandwiches being constructed. I don't think the word sandwich does it any justice really. In theory its a filling of various... More

I read some of the reviews here and could not believe that a sandwich stand is so highly praised. We went on the first day of our trip, around noon, to check it out but the line was so long it scared us off. Next day we went around 8-9 in the morning, and we were able to get our... More

Fabulous Sicilian deli..we went in for a sandwich, but came out with 2 bags full of cheese and cured meats! The sandwiches were super filled and made in front of us, very good value. The guy gave us little bits to try while he was making them and also prepared a whole tasting platter! Must if you are in Syracuse!... More
