Ordered two grinders. Meat was fresh and plentiful but sandwiches were not made as requested. Biggest issue- tomatoes were greenish-white, honestly, it was difficult to identify the tomatoes as tomatoes as they were so off color. It would be better to not use the unripe tomatoes at all, as it just left us questioning the quality control of ingredients. We... More

I've passed through this part of Connecticut many times and always saw the billboards for Nardelli's, but made my first stop there last week. I'm sorry that I missed it before. There is a wide variety of choices available, which pleased my vegetarian daughter as much as her carnivore father. According to her, the eggplant parmesan sandwich was outstanding. I... More

Best place to get a sandwich in Southbury. They are a small local chain, but they do deli right! Order something standard, or create any sort of sandwich you want. I like roast beef, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, mayo, salt and pepper on a hero myself. They use high quality cold cuts and the bread is excellent. Only order the full... More

Nardelli's is way better than Subway down the street but that's about all I can say, nothing remotely healthy or unique. People that really KNOW deli meats seem to love it, as I don't eat Deli meats the appeal is lost on me.

We used Nardelli's to bring in bites for the wedding party before the church ceremony. They were fantastic! Delivered on time, delicious sandwiches and wraps... courteous and flexible service. Would definitely use again!

I “Googled” sandwich shops while driving through Connecticut – and saw all the glowing reviews for Nardelli’s – so I had to stop. I ordered the Italian combo mentioned in many of the reviews – and I have to say that it was just OK (and compared to my expectations – it was a big disappointment – more below). On... More

Eat in or take out the meals and deserts are excellent. Deli meals, particularly in grocery stores, frequently look like they are not always fresh but that is not the case in Nardelli's. The food looks, smells and tastes like it was prepared at home. Far superior to Dotties and some other overrated area restaurants.

The food is good here but frankly I just don't get all of the hype. The bread is too thick, in fact that's mostly what you get is bread and lettuce and cucumbers. Subway adds more meat. So I just don't get all the hype over Nardelli's. I believe that there are many pizza shops in the area that have... More

I have eaten at many of the Nardelli's shoppe's around CT and I have always enjoyed their grinders. Pretty much everything is tastes good. They are on the pricey side but about the same compared to similar places in Southbury. Subway is cheaper but the quality isn't as good as Nardelli's. Mark up on snacks and drinks is a bit... More
