Italian, Sandwiches/Deli
Price Scale

Italian delis—purveyors of pastas, cured meat by the pound, sandwiches—are an old-school East Coast fixture, relatively rare this far west. So big ups to the family behind La Rustica for creating this white-tiled haven in the heart of the Junction, its shelves stuffed with wine bottles, its deli cases full of antipasti, fresh pasta and sauces, and all manner of Italian cookies. The hot menu revolves around sandwiches, from the enormous portofolios (pizza dough layered with toppings, then folded up and baked) to subs made with bread that’s somehow both ethereal and up to the challenge of the red sauce and superlative lamb meatballs.
