Genova's had the best sandwiches hands-down. Everything was always fresh and delicious. They had a huge assortment of items to get, a really great Italian deli!

My co-worker came in to help me and told me of this deli close to our job site. Very difficult to find parking around the lunch hour, so beware! Once we were in, I was quite impressed with all the deli items and how efficiently...More

A real deli....all the good smells, all the real good food. You must have their meat ravioli. Simply the best. Yes their sandwiches are very good, their staff is the best, but get the meat ravioli, with their sauce. Heaven.

Great sandwiches, prepared food, and service. Salad bar is great, but can get expensive. You make your salad, they weigh it, then you pay. Be careful, this can get expensive.

Busy, busy! Expect long lines but so worth the wait! Too hectic for eating in though... Just make a real deal: get your sandwich for lunch and buy deli meats and fried artichoke balls, salads, bread and frozen ravioli to get you through the week....More

The guys (and they're all guys) that work at the sandwich counter are efficient, gracious, funny. And the dry goods selection is pretty broad. Bufala, basil, and tomatoes on Dutch crunch, with a take home of ravioli. What more could you want?
