I was in today with my wife and daughter today; we all got the veggie subs, and I treated myself to a tiramisu as well. Sandwiches were excellent, great value and well worth it. I ordered the large sandwiches without thinking, and they were.... large!...More

The best grinder ever. From the moment you enter and are greeted to the time you sink your teeth into your scrumptious meal, you are salivating. Plank Road in Waterbury is the best. Stuffed with meat and veggies that are so fresh. ENJOY!!!More

We had had a very long day and didn't want to cook supper so we stopped here. The sign said the grinders were the best...and they were. The staff was friendly and the subs absolutely delicious. Definitely coming back.More

It's stunning that some people complained about Nardelli's Grinders. I guess it's tru you can't please everyone all the time. I've been going to Nardelli's for years, both in Naugatuck and Waterbury. At all times, the Grinders are made fresh with almost too much to...More
