Description: 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.

We had to make a stop in Columbia on a Sunday and found this spot for brunch as a result of googling. Spying the waiting line for a table, we assumed we'd made a good choice. The wait was not long. I had traditional eggs Benedict while my husband had the Charleston version (with crab cake instead of Canadian bacon). Both were good. The sides of potato & cheese casserole and fresh fruit were satisfactory, if a little skimpy. While this place didn't wow us, we weren't disappointed either. We would consider returning.

Decided to drop by to get lunch for my weekend staff at the Heart Hospital. Made the mistake of looking at the display of food they have. Ended up purchasing three different kinds of pimento cheese, tomato pie and southern style wings along with pita chips that are freshly made and additive. Service is great. People are friendly. Must try if you have never been. All of the food is great. Weekend brunch is great!

I had the pick two. The tomato soup and a Gouda pimento cheese on sourdough bread. It was good. Nice place for lunch. The wait staff was very friendly and provided prompt service.

Pimento cheese, Cuban sandwich, roast beef with gravy all just wonderful. Service is always good. One of our favorite places

Di Prato's is a small-ish deli on Pickens Street, near the Maxcy Gregg Park. The deli serves everything from soups to salads, from sandwiches to cheesecake. The servers and owner are very friendly people who really seem to want to make you comfortable while dining at Di Prato's. For an early dinner, I ordered a pastrami sandwich, which came with pasta salad on the side. The sandwich wasn't anything to write home about, but the pasta salad was as good as any I've ever had. The best part about Di Prato's, however, was the praline cheesecake. (The deli also serves cheesecake actually made in Pennsylvania.) When you are in the South, you HAVE to try a praline-based product, and the cheesecake--although not as savory as other desserts I've had--did the praline justice. Overall, Di Prato's was a decent joint, and I'll be returning in the future.
