I moved out of The City and continued to go back to my old haunts to get what I was used to. Once I stepped into Columbo's, a family run deli, there was no further need. Columbo's offers fresh bread, including focaccia, fresh salads and high quality meats, cheeses, ravioli, wines and other Italian imported goodies. Matches or surpasses many... More

It's a cozy little deli and reminds me of the NY Italian deli's where I grew up -- cheeses and salami's hanging, great quality cold cuts and a wide selection of delish sandwiches such as the "godmother' and"godfather"! While you're waiting for them to make your sandwich, you can shop around for imported Italian pastas, fine wines, frozen ravioli, cookies... More

Colombo's makes the best sangwiches in the Bay Area. Period. You can have your foo foo vegan pesto atrocities at other places, but order yourself a Godfather at Colombos, and you'll be happy for the rest of your life. The closest to a real East Coast Italian sandwich (as good, if not better) that I've had in my 30 years... More

Food was very good. Just would advise not to expect expedient delivery. Sandwiches are made to order and production is not fast. Friendly staff and good place to visit if you want better quality than Subway.

Colombo's Delicatessen has a wide range of sandwiches, and the sizes are very large so they're easy to share. They have a "take a number" system and the wait can be long, but if you call ahead with your order you'll avoid the wait. if you don't call ahead. We usually order a few different sandwiches and then share them... More

Been going over 25 years. Value, quality & friendliness are consistently high. Best home baked breads you can find. Sandwiches are so large, they almost must be shared. This family owned/operated business is a credit to hard work & to Pacifica. If there's one negative, it's that they're always busy. Loads of staff, but demand is just that high; it's... More

Great sandwich but be prepared to wait and wait and wait. The crew has no sense of urgency. Even if there are four customers in the deli your still going to wait a minimum of 30 minutes. I don't know what takes so long but it does. Best bet is to call in your order and they will give you... More

the homemade breads, the delicious and filling subs aka hogies aka heros are the best in the Bay Area. I have been a patron from many years and Colombo's is a homegrown, homemade treasure of an old-school Italian deli. This is a deli, not a restaurant

Sandwiches are great here and the prices are reasonable but the wait was not terrible even though we were in the front of a long line. Ordered 5 sandwiches and it took 30 mins for them to get prepared. If you come in a group of 5 or so, have each person order their own sub. One person takes care... More
