Great stuff!

Sam's special sandwich is the best! The counter people are just wonderful at helping you decide what is best. Great selection of Italian items and Sam himself is always ready to great you with a friendly smile.

Best place in town

I first had Sam's about three years ago when our friends had a party catered with their food. I loved it. The Foccacia sandwich is unbelievable. So a few days later I went to Sam's to get that same Foccacia sandwich, and I was so impressed with the store and the staff. Not only did the guys behind the counter know exactly what I wanted even before I was finished saying Foccacia, but they also knew my friends who had the party , Joe and Karen, and then about four or five different employees came over to make sure I said hi to Joe and Karen. I just fell in love with their food and their employees. since that day i have returned to Sam's two to three times a week, Im on a first name basis with everyone there, and I dont even have to tell them what I want, they always know.

Lousy snadwiches

I traveled out of my way to visit Sam's. They have some interesting items for sale, buy the deli sandwich I ordered was terrible. The bread was lousy, and there was so little meat in the sandwich, that all I could taste was the mustard and wax peppers. There was less than 1/8 of a pound of meat in the larger sandwich that I bought.
I grew up in San Francisco and have eaten in Italian, Jewish, and Russian Deli's. Sam's doesn't come close to any of them!!!!

Perfect Deli

it doesn't get better than Sam's: The food is great - Sandwiches, Italian to go, salads etc. I love their deli meats and cheeses: it's the only place to go for everything genuine and Italian and the service is incredible. Sam's will go out of their way to please you without charging you up the nose for it. Moreover, they are always friendly (I've even gotten advice for making a better tiramisu there)

Fresno's quintessential Italian deli.

Every town has to have a good Italian deli to even be considered worthy of living in. Without polenta, porcini mushrooms, teleme cheese, dry coppa and tuscano salami life is just not worth living. Fortunately Sam's has all of the above and more. Everything from black winter truffles (jarred of course) to amaretti di saronno to Chicago-style giardinera to the obligatory san marzano tomatoes, pasta and prosciutto. High-quality Italian meats from independant manufacterers (none of that Columbus and Hormel stuff thank you very much) are the centerpiece, but all four corners are stuffed with great food and kitchen utensils.
Make sure to grab a few pieces of torrone at the check out counter.

Old-timers Deli!

This little Italian Deli is a great spot for lunch-time sandwiches, but you better arrive early or you'll be standing in line for awhile.
