I had pretty much given up hope in finding a really good deli sandwich for lunch in downtown Napa. Too often workmates tried to lure me to makeshift deli places and each time I left disappointed and many times throwing my sandwich away on the sly. As a result, I decided to just part ways with this standard fare for lunch. And certainly, downtown Napa has plenty of other lunchtime options.

However, today I ventured into Frankie's Italian Deli located on 1502 Main Street at the urging of a friend who boasted she loved everything on the menu.  "Everything"?  Hmmm. I decided to order the Genoa sandwich which had Italian salami, provolone & anchovies, red onion, leaf lettuce, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette on a French roll. (had them add pepperonchinis too).  And my opinion on the matter?
Wait for it....

DELICIOUS!  Best sandwich I've had in a very long time! The ingredients are fresh, quality of meat is high, bread is good. It's a pretty good size sandwich and upon opening the wrapping, I told myself I would only eat half. Well, this sandwich was too darn good not to eat the entire thing.  Oh and if you do order the Genoa, don't be quick to tell them to remove the anchovies. The combo actually works quite well.

But perhaps there are doubters? I happened to order sandwiches for several folks in our office (Tuscan, Verona, Sicilian) and the reaction was the same "It's really good", "this is such a good sandwich", "I thought I was only going to eat half, but I'm definitely eating the 2nd half".

What's that saying? Proof is in the pudding.  Frankie's Deli is open from 8am to 5pm. You can call in your order ahead of time or fax your order. In addition to sandwiches, they also have side dishes like Sicilian Pasta, Orzo Salad, Potato salad. With each sandwich ordered a muffin chocolate chip cookie is included. 

I hope they stay around for a very long time. I might have to make this a once a week spot if not more!
