  • Best pre-made pesto you're likely to find around Pasadena. Also, ricotta pound cake-as good as it sounds.
  • Toscano grilled chicken panini & Kobe roast beef sandwich are amazing. Some of the best sandwiches around. Call ahead and they'll have your ready when you get there!
  • I live for the caprese salad...1/2 pint is only $3.95 :)
  • Visited the first time last week and went back again today! Had the Toscano- deeelicious toasted chicken with a hint of sweet! Get a 1/2 pint of bruschetta and ask for a few slices of bread!
  • The half sandwich and salad is great for 2 if you aren't starving hungry.
  • Artisan Salami!
  • The wedge salad is yummy!
  • Pricey for what I got....but tasty none the less.
  • Prosciutto mozzarella sandwich was amazing!
  • Chicken parm baby!!!
  • The customized salad bar is great lots of choices and hearty portions
  • Danny Cabrera provides the best customer service. Have him help you out.
  • Try the peanut butter brownie cup. Plenty to share or just indulge. You'll want one each visit after!
  • Best Italian subs, and that nutella panini is the shit.
  • Best Italian Deli. Mixed spiced nuts and desserts are great too.
  • Meatball sandwich is a mess, but well worth it! Side Caesar had great flavor but far too many croutons for my liking.
  • Nutella panini... Hmmm...
  • Made-to-order salads are the best in town.
  • The Kobe roast beef rocks. Just tell them to go easy on the pesto aioli.
  • Tuscano Panini is great, but the canoli is to die for!
