Good to eat any sandwich or just eat the salads. They are amazing. They have great service with a smile. But get there early because the line gets long. Mostly ToGo orders. Only a few tables out front. Excellent beverage variety, unique candy and all kinds of chips. Bring your appetite the sandwiches are huge!

My friends and I frequently make the short walk from base down to Compagno's and get new sandwiches every time. Our favorites are the Branch Specials, the Army is my favorite. It's ran by Bennet, an incredibly personable guy. The sandwiches are massive, by the way. If you're a small person I suggest getting a half sandwich.

What a great place. Sells subs, beer and chips. What more does one need? $12.50 for a sub and really should have had a half sub. One full sub was more than enough for both me and my wife. The sub tasted great as the ingredients were fresh and in the proper proportion. We had a #2 which was avacado... More

In town for some r&r. Decided to drive the little woman around the point and take the 17 mile drive. Wanting to be relaxing and somewhat romantic, figured we could grab lunch to have a quiet picnic. Hit the reviews and found this place. Looks great, had to try it. I'm always one for different, so their specials looked delish.... More

The food is great. Excellent selection. Fresh product. Nice collection of cakes. More than 20 selections of cold and warm sandwiches. Best for to go orders. They take call-in orders with a 10-20 minutes turn around time, and do well on their time estimates. Good service, nice people and their priced are decent with large portions even the half- sandwiches.... More

I've never felt more welcome and satisfied at a restuarant in my 45yrs. I've lived in the Napa valley and been at most fine dining place there, I work in the gas lamp district in San Diego and two different high end restuarant and those places will greatly fail you compared to the hospitality that Compagno's provides. I will tell... More

I've been going here gorgeous over 15 years. It hasn't changed much, and that's a good thing. Huge variety of sandwiches, wide choice of breads, cheeses, condiments, etc. Yummy side salads and delicious cakes! If you are STARVING get a whole sandwich, but most folks can only eat half at once. If you go at lunch time during the week... More

Compagno's is is outside the Presidio of Monterey, Defense Language Institute. I was a student there over 40 years ago and used to frequent the deli as an after hours or weekend treat from Army food. It is still there, still going strong or stronger. Deli sandwich selections are extensive and made to order while you wait. Plenty of typical... More
