You can get a variety of sandwiches here, and they are pretty good. There are lots of good subs to be found here and elsewhere in DC. What sets Litteri out is the rest of the food items. For a relatively small store, there's a...More

This place has a sandwich shop in the back, and the food is speculation! The sandwiches come 6, 9, and 12 inches. They have deli salads and sides. Then they do fresh pasta and dishes to take home and cook. It's good. They offer every...More

Skip the trip to Litteri. Mushroom Ravioli was tasteless and marinara sauce salty. Very expensive. Skip Litteri's. Go to Harris Teeter, Wegmann's, or Whole Foods.

If you're staying locally - Northeast sector - A.Litteri is a suburban Italian gem behind a nondescript facade. Do go in to find pasta, sauces, cheese, sausage and fantastic wine. All with an Italian theme and very reasonably priced.

excellent products and very helpful staff. Grab a sandwich because they are excellent. Take home sausages because they are excellent. Usually to find product like this you have to drive to NY or Philly.

Aside from great heros and my fav is the meatball sub, the balsamic vinegars and virgin olive oil selection for us cooks is the joint. Also if you love the tonno from Italy and anchovies this is the place to get them. LOVE Liteeri
