Great (1) Meatball Sammich: <none>


I was fully prepared to love the food based all the comments that I had read. I ordered the sandwich the list of daily specials. It was supposed to be stuffed veal but it was more...

Great Sandwiches, Cured Meats, Lamb "Prosciutto" 1/3/2012

Pros: Good cured meats like salami, ham, coppa, and Lamb "Prosciutto" which you won't find anywhere else. Decent prices and good place to grab a sandwich and stock up on lunch meat. Cons: Only open 4 days a week and not Sat-Mon when I most want to visit. more

Salumi made the New York Times! 5/18/2006

I was thrilled to see Salumi on the front page (online) of the New York Times today. Congrats, Batali. You deserve it! "A Prince of Pork: In Seattle, Recreating the Perfect Ham" In addition to his shop on the edge of Pioneer Square, keep an eye out for Salumi meats on great antipasto plates around town. You can also pick them up at De Laurenti I'd also highly recommend the salumi sandwich from the Baguette Box more

Great Italian Food 3/28/2006

I worked in an a local italian restaurant for 6 years... Pizzuto's Italian Cafe, the kind of restaurantwhere mama used to make the lasanga + ravioli. Salumi, is this type of restaurant. The food is excellent and the atmosphere feels like family! I highly recommend Gnocchi Tuesday!!! more

Salumi--the Italian Experience 3/23/2006

I'm a pretty big eater and I like to try out new places. After hearing a friend's of mine praised about Salumi (located on 3rd ave in Pioneer Square) the sandwhiches at this place and how they make their own cured meat, I was curious. I tried to go there for the past few times but every time I've failed. Finally, today, I made it. We go there to avoid the line by 11:40, apparently we should be there by 11am! The line was inside out! We waited for half an hour and finally got to order. The original plan was to eat there, but they only had 4 tables and can only seat 10-15 people. Anyhow, I ordered the Grilled Lamb sandwhich. The place is cute and feels very New York Delish. But the half an hour wait and was not worth the grilled lamb sandwhich. It was good, but not great! I was expecting greatness! I guess that's what happens when someone hypes up something. The next time I go I will definitely call ahead and preorder (you don't have to wait in line if you phoned in earlier!). If you really want to try the place, I suggest you get there by 11am, call in before or go after the lunch rush. Oh yeah, they're closed on Mondays. more

Doctor, doctor find me the "cure" 3/8/2006

Best cured meats in Seattle or frankly anywhere outside of Europe. Just had a great dinner there with a wonderful group of people. They are discontinuing the dinners but will still be hosting lunches. Try the Mole Salami!! more

the real deal 2/10/2006

I've lived in Boston and San Francisco, both known for their Italian neighborhoods plentiful with markets and authentic food. However, salumi is nothing like anything I've ever tasted. The freshness and complexity of the meats is incredible. The homemade fresh mozarella is out of this world- you'll never want to go back to the supermarket stuff. I haven't tried all of the meats, but most of them have been delicious. Go early to beat the lunch crowd, you will wait in a line out the door for a sandwich. If you have time, try the family style dining with a glass of the communal wine. Oh and try to go on Tuesday for the best gnocci in Seattle, handmade by Mario's mother on Tuesdays. more

Not for vegetarians 1/8/2006

Salumi specializes in cured meats, Italian style. The sandwiches are an almost perfect combination of meat and cheese on specialty bread. Cold meat and cheese platters are also available as well as meats to go. The seating area at this establishment is European style (you share one table with strangers) and very small. The atmosphere is congenial and the staff knows how to wield a knife. Service overall is great and prices are reasonable (around 6 for a sandwich). more

amazing! 9/12/2005

Armandino makes the best italian meats Seattle is ever likely to see! He's simultaneously a traditionalist and an upstart innovator--witness the lamb proscuitto. Always tasty, always gracious, always packed! more

Too Much Hope... 8/26/2005

I has heard good things about this place. The place to get an Italian Sammy. But, well I think this one was overshot. Got the prosciutto with fig and goat cheese. I liked the spreads enough. I guess I'm just a cured, dried meat kinda person. Should've gotten the salami cause it looked delish. I really was looking forward to getting a bite here. Maybe next time. more

Itsy-bitsy and perfect 8/21/2005

A meat-eater's delight, I have every confidence that I could order absolutely anything from the menu at Salumi and be charmed. Offering Italian delicacies ranging from cured beef tongue to hand-made gnocchi dumplings, with sandwiches and house-cured sausages in abundance, Salumi doesn't disappoint. Their hand-pulled mozzarella (made fresh daily) is a revelation and was superb enough to turn me off of store-bought mozzarella. more

Beautiful, beautiful pork 8/18/2005

A store and restaurant devoted to the art and science of charcuterie, or preserved meat, Salumi takes pork (and beef and lamb) and transubstantiates it, creating something transcendent, something the humbe pig could never dream of becoming: delicious, intensely flavored sausages, salamis and prosciuttos. Open only on weekdays from 11 to 4 pm (or thereabouts; check the hours) and located in an inconspicuous storefront in Pioneer Square, it's not the easiest place to get to. But it's worth the trip. Join the line that often stretches out the door and make your way into the comically narrow store, past the cooler which more often than not contains a curing pig or lamb. Some days, you'll also pass a woman rolling homemade gnocci in the window. Order a sandwich or platter at the counter, and either take it out or eat at the two crowded, family-style tables in back, with honor-system jugs of wine. Everything's good, either eaten in or taken out. Try the Muffo sandwich, with a mix of salamis, cheese and olive spread, or the meatball sandwich, with big, porky, homemade meatballs. The homemade lamb sausage is fantastic and even the mozzarella-tomato-pesto sandwich is great. Just plan a long stroll after lunch, to walk it off. more

Hard To Find But Worth It! 8/17/2005

This is one of my favourite places to go for lunch. Note: Check hours of operation and days open before going as they tend to keep limited shop hours. What can I say? I haven't had a bad thing here yet. If you are vegetarian, you may want to go somewhere else. House-cured meats are the name of the game here. The sandwiches are to die for, especially the meatball and the pork sandwiches. It may seem a bit on the pricey side for sandwiches but the quality of the ingredients are top-notch. Molto Mario's father is often here attending to the restaurant. Wine by the glass is on an honour system. Be prepared to share one of the three tables (if you are lucky enough to get a seat). If you love house cured meats, GO NOW! more

mario batalli's dad's place 8/16/2005

small hole in the wall with great following. It is a must for anyone that likes cured meats. This is the famous and iron chef Mario Batalli's dad's place. It is said that ichiro likes to eat here as well. they have handmade cured meat. They have weird hours, and are always busy and have a line during lunch. Only one big table to sit at if you want to eat there, so be social if you are going to eat at the restaurant. On Friday's momma batalli makes hand made gnochi which are very excellent. I think this place is a must. more

Salumi Artisan Cured Meats 8/16/2005

Like many geniuses, Armandino Batali constructs a set of formal limits and interrogates the space within. Here, Batali operated in a closet-sized curing room in a small space in Pioneer Square (he has since expanded his curing space), is open for only minimal hours, and crafts the best cured meats you’re likely to find anywhere within a day’s drive of Seattle. For lunch, they’ll pile these divinities onto sandwiches, if you’d like (and you will), or offer a very limited (but only by number, by day) menu of other fantastic traditional Italian dishes. Even though you probably can’t get a seat for dinner there this year, and even though the line during their scant lunch hours usually stretches well outside the door, I’m still not sure that Salumi is as well-known locally as in the mid-level epicurean press. If you’re not aware of their backstory, visit their website. more

Gourmet meats and more... 9/13/2004

If you prefer meats, you will be in heaven. The father of Mario Batali went off to Italy to learn how to case sausages and he came back a star! They have lamb that's delish and also usually a soup and pasta entree. The place is small and crowded and you sit with your food at shared tables where wine flows (and you just tell them at the end how much you drank) and conversation buzzes. The meats are amazing, the cheeses delish and the employees all seem related to Armandino somehow- they are funny and love what they do. Try to go on a Thurs (?) and you'll see an older woman making homemade gnocchi in the front window. Get there early or be prepared to stand in line. Lunch only. more
