could the search be over??? ok, that is a bit exaggerated but this is the best attempt at an Italian sub that I have had on the West Coast.
Disclaimer, that is all I have had from Giovanni's so I cant speak for the rest of the food, but this place does feel like a legit back east italian deli/restaurant... also, regarding the prices, people in san diego are cheap and broke... if you want a cheap sandwich go to subway
So the bread is not anywhere near what you get back east but its not terrible, and the sandwich is good quality meats and cheeses so you overlook the bread. Ask for an Italian cold cut combo... and this is important! get the hot peppers on the side, bring them home and chop them up and spread them on the sandwich. Again, I dont understand why they cant get the chopped up hot/sweet peppers you get at every sub shop back east, it doesnt make sense??? Also, no mayo or mustard people, oil & vinegar! Anyway, this is a great place to try if you are craving those delicious back east italian subs... a very good attempt!
