Romanelli's Deli & Bakery
Phoenix, AZ 85051-5332
Phoenix New Times's Description
Unlike New York, where there’s a deli on every corner, it can be tough to find a good one in Phoenix outside of the grocery store. Enter Romanelli’s in West Phoenix, which will not only hook you up with a badass sandwich, but also offers Italian products like homemade dressings and sauces, dozens of kinds of pasta, olive oils, gelatos, an antipasto bar, and even little trinkets bearing the red, white, and green flag. The meat and cheese counter is the centerpiece, and you can get cold cuts to take home or order a sandwich like the signature Italian Stallion, stuffed with ham, capicolla, Genoa salami, pepperoni, and provolone cheese. Then it’s topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, mustard, and the deli’s Italian dressing. They’ll make it on white or wheat, but definitely opt for the crusty yet soft Italian bread. Romanelli’s also serves homemade dishes like lasagna, meatballs, Italian sausage and peppers, and spaghetti. Even if you’re stuffed, don’t leave without a homemade chocolate chip cannoli – and a few extras to stash in the fridge for later.
