This location is not open for dining, but the drive-through window is open and surprisingly quick. I had a cold Italian grinder and I don't think I waited three minutes before mine was ready. It was very good; very good roll with top-quality meats and...cheese. Recommended.More

We stopped here to grab food on our way to see The Star Spangled Girl by The Castle Craig Players. We were the only people in the place when we arrived, so we had their undivided attention. We chose a prepared Cranberry/ Walnut Salad and...their special sandwich of the day, which was 1/2 grinder of chicken eggplant parmigiana which was accompanied by potato salad and a drink. We added the chocolate mousse for dessert. They included all utensils. The food was awesome. We will be back!More

Nardelli’s offers a wide selection of grinders, with a old style American-Italian feel to it. Along with grinders, there is a selection of desserts (Cannolis, of course) and salads. The staff was friendly and more than competent. This is a much better choice for a...quick mean (eat in or take out) than going to one of the national fast food chains available in the neighborhoodMore

This place was fantastic. We came in right when they were about to close, but they were very friendly and served us anyway. They didn’t have a large number of vegetarian options, but the veggie grinder that they had was delicious. It was one of...the best sandwiches I have had in years, and it blows away a Subway sandwich. I highly recommend this shop both for service and quality of food.More

Nardelli's was located next to our hotel. We wandered in after dinner seeking ice cream (which they don't carry) and "settled" for slices of carrot and red velvet cakes which turned out to be a great substitute! Who needs ice cream when you can have...cake? Normally I do, but honestly, these cakes were complete yumminess. The grinder and salad selections looked so amazing we were happy to try them today. Delicious. We live in Maine but will visit Nardelli's the next time we are in CT.More

I just got a sandwich to go. I was absolutely blown away. The quality of the meats & bread was truly impressive. If you want a real challenge get a whole sub, I got just a half & it was a struggle to get it...down. You can order online & pick up your order if you are in a hurry, but take your time to eat it, it will be worth it.More

Great place for really good sandwiches: Grinder or Wrap. They make it to order and really fast. It's a nice atmosphere- they collectively greet you as you enter, take your order really fast, and if you tip them, they ring a bell and all staff...yell Grazie! Not your typical "subway" sandwich. They load it up with meat and fixings. Guaranteed that you'll like it. Even with a short line at the counter, you are in and out within a few minutes. My daily lunch place! They have pre-prepared deli salads and meals, chips, drinks, etc.More

My husband wasn’t too keen about his meatball grinder, but I enjoyed my chicken cutlet and my daughter liked her pulled pork. It was easy to pick what we wanted since the various meats and offerings are on display. It’s a nice little place that...we would visit again if we are in the area. I would grab one of the desserts next time since they looked so good.More

I had heard of grinders thrugh a friend and was pleased to experience one at Narelli's, just nxt door to the hotel at which I was staying. The grinder (white bread roll) was good - not too heavy, and a nice amount of filling. Thereis...also a wide range of salads, creamy varieties and the more (to me) succulent lettice and tomato based salads. Mine could have been a little warmer, but that was easily sorted in the microwave at Comfort Inn next door.More
