When it comes to finding an authentic ""East Coast Style"" Italian deli and sub (a.k.a., a hogie), this is unquestionably the right place to go in So Cal. I was a customer of Bay...

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/31/2014

This is easily the best meatball sub in the city, but I don't think you can go wrong with anything ordered here. The Italian grocery is awesome too. Bay cities rocks! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/25/2013

Great sandwiches and home made bread, nice grocery store to browse in while you wait for sandwich to be made. Parking is a challenge. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/5/2013

Might be the best sandwich bread on the planet. Put whatever you want on it, it will be amazing. more

Worst customer service! 3/25/2012

Worst customer service and employees I've experienced in a market. When a small container of deli potato salad accidentally fell from a shelf, I was blamed and berated by an employee who proceeded to tell me that I was responible for buying it. The store employees proceeded to give me a hard time as I was checking out even though i was spending almost $20 on 2 sandwiches. They told me they went back to review a video and the container dropped as I was pulling out the one next to it... come on, it was a $1.75 container of potato salad, not a $100 bottle of wine. It was embarrassing and I will never go back again. The Godmother sandwich was just so-so and not worth the experience. more

Italian staples and better-call-ahead sandwiches! 8/29/2011

Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery has been a Santa Monica establishment since it first opened its doors in 1925. Although it sells everything from kitchen supplies to Asian ingredients, Bay Cities is known for its variety of Italian staples (both imported and domestic). It offers over two dozen kinds of DeCecco pasta and enough pannetone to build a house. It also features an impressive selection of international cheeses and wines. And, did we mention its incredible array of freshly made sandwiches, salads, and other prepared deli favorites? We love the Godmother Sandwich and Marinated Artichokes. Order your food for home or for immediate consumption on the patio. The line at the deli counter can be up to 15 minutes long but the food is well worth the wait. You can also place your order online and pick it up at the side counter. @thelagourmet more

FANTASTIC SANDWICHES! 11/15/2010

The sandwiches here are to die for!!! Yum!!!! Their bread reminds me of the bread up in san francisco (although they still rate #1). Whenever I come into town this is what I crave. If you can... Order online... If not.. Expect a line more

Awesome Deli 10/21/2010

All about the Godmother! They now have them in a basket on the counter so you don't have to wait. That and the homemade bread make it worth the trip! more

One of the Best Around 1/19/2010

Great sub sandwiches with nice selection of Italian meats and cheeses. The ""Godmother"" sandwich is simply awesome. Give it a try and if you don't like it I'll refund your money. But please, save me the rest. more

Bad Service - - Long Wait - SoSo Sandwich 9/16/2009

I ordered the Godmother with the works, but forgot to ask to hold the mayo and mustard. Half-way through making the sandwich, I informed the sandwich maker that I had forgotten to ask to hold the mayo and mustard. He reluctantly made me another sandwich. Here's the kicker. Instead of the peppers they usually include with the ""works"", this A-hole substituted pickled veggies (Yuck!). For this I waited 30 minutes? OK, my mistake for not requesting to hold the mayo and mustard, but to purposely screw up the sandwich is just plain rude. Pros: Good bread Cons: Rude Service more

great sandwich!! 1/26/2009

i went here a couple of weeks ago and just got to writing a review....i went here just to see how great this deli is. it ends up being a little italian grocery store very cute. and the deli section is where you can get your sandwiches. my mother is a pastrami fanatic so i mainly came for her. she loved it her favorite was the fresh bread and the hot pepper salad in the sandwich that made it unique. i got the potroast sandwich it was hot and juicy and they give you alot. the price is good too. for $8 you will not be hungry for the rest of the day! i would love to try everything on the menu Pros: the bread hot pepper salad the abundant of meats sandwiches Cons: i dunno maybe the parking more
