We arrived about 11:15 for lunch, and had no trouble getting a table. The waitress was very helpful. She answered all our questions about their rather unusual ordering procedure. You can order anything off the menu of course, but then you can order by the...More

When leaving the zoo, we needed something to eat for lunch. Columbia doesn't seem to be known for too many good restaurants but there are a few that stand out above the rest and this is one of them. We had a little bit of...More

My daughter took my husband and I to this deli and we were pretty impressed with their menu. It was hard to decide whether or not to eat breakfast or lunch. My husband had Eggs Charleston and I had the Pimento, bacon and cheese sandwich....More

This is one of our favorite restaurants when visiting Columbia. We suggested that our out-of-town friends have lunch on the day they arrived and they liked it so much that we had lunch again during their visit.

Very good service and very good food. Only problem is that I need a bigger mouth because the sandwiches are so thick

DiPrato's Delicatessen opened May 2004, and, today, the DiPrato's Experience affords patrons a rewarding escape from ordinary fare. The reward? Delectable food, beautiful décor, and a beguiling balance: friendly service and a pleasant, neighborly feeling. DiPrato's, located where the Purple Cow grocer operated, graces a quiet neighborhood barely off the beaten path. Driving up, you notice the rich red brick, set off by greenery, and spacious windows where light pours in. Approaching the wooden, double-door entrance, a thought comes to mind. You're about to enjoy the DiPrato's Experience. You could say a Southern breeze laden with Italian accents drifts through this New York style delicatessen. Dine if you like on the patio where the glassy splash of falling water melts away concerns. Pita chips and pimento cheese are a real treat! Blend Dianne Light and Bill Prato's presence and culinary skills and you get a wonderfully popular delicatessen-DiPrato's.
