For a great sandwich and desert this is the place! Want to impress a lunch date then go here. However, there's not much seating It's bit pricey but that's what it takes for quality. The wait can be a bit long but it's worth it....More

I like this place for a sandwich or hot food. They have a good selection of hot food and after 4 it goes on sale! I particularly like the raviolis. Sandwiches are hand made but pricy. The customer service needs some improvement

A real Italian Deli that has been in Walnut Creek fir over 50 years in the same location. This is the real deal, great sandwiches and salads as well as pasta sauces and ravioli. The lines are usually long but well worth the wait.

Genova's has been a staple in Walnut Creek for as long as I can remember. Walk through the doors and be transported to Italy. Everything you want in a deli: great sandwiches, choices but plan to take home ravioli & sauce for dinner! So many...More

I've had lunch here on a couple of occasions and am glad that I don't live closer. Why? Because I'd be as big as a house if I did. It's an old fashioned Italian deli with salami and other cured meats hanging from the ceiling....More

You take a number in this deli. When it was our turn the server was rude and pushy reminded me of soup nazi in Seinfelt. There was no prices or description on deli items and on any questions the server was hostile. I thought of...More
