Where It All Began
Our humble beginnings were born in 1979 tucked away quietly inside a small shop in Manhattan. Our vision was simple: to make the customer happy whilst doing what we love. A place where you walk in as a customer and leave as a friend.
Ever since our modest start we have only solidified the beliefs founded so long ago. Our vision is a pledge to you: a fellow member of our community and family. We pledge to make every one of your visits to our home an experience; We pledge to serve you not only the highest quality product but a product that is unique and different to intrigue your taste-buds.
Only the best ingredients go into our food, and that’s NOT a marketing spin! We have a variety of meats, imported straight from Italy. Everything from the bread to the house dressing is made specifically for the Deli of Italy. Our fresh homemade cannolis, fresh mozzarella and in-house creations like the handcrafted 4 pound sandwich, “The Godfather,” is an experience you can only get here.
We strive to be the best at what we do.
- We only use antibiotic free and hormone free chicken breast.
- All of our Dressings, seasonings and marinades are made in house from scratch and without preservatives, artificial flavors, dyes, or MSG.
- Desserts and Fresh Mozzarella are made in house among other specialties…
- We use ingredients that you can pronounce; the kind that do not have numbers or a degree in latin or Chemistry.
We do it right, EVERY TIME, like our great grandparents did.

This is what food should be: An Experience. Our entire business is based around this principle.
With all this said, come on in and try one of our very own Signature creations and get a feel for the place! You’ll never look at a “sub-shop” the same way again!

“This Place WINS!”
“This place WINS. Someone at work recommended Deli of Italy to me, so I went in and was pleasantly surprised by the great selection of subs, salads, etc. I tried the Basic Italian, because I’m not really familiar with the names of the different types of deli meats, and it was delicious. Can’t wait to come back and try other things! Keep up the good work.”
Becky, Lancaster, PA

“Our family has used Deli of Italy for numerous family gatherings – birthday celebrations; Christening party; holidays – and every time the guests rave about the food. Don’t overlook the fresh fruit tray – it’s amazing. Also not to be missed is the lasagna! We have had trays of it with salad; bread stix and fruits as well as the meat and cheese trays.

“One of York’s best kept secrets…”
“…the owners are a blast, the food is DELIcious, and they recently relocated to a prime location in the York Town Center Plaza (over near Five Below on the Aspen Dental end). Two of my favs are the Italian Rose (salad w/chicken, fresh mozz, and tomato) and the Qubano (mmm mmm good).”
Lenina C., York PA
“I absolutely love Deli of Italy”
“We don’t get to go out there nearly enough, but when we do I am all about a slice of heaven. This is my favorite sandwich ever, although I have had a few others that they offer, and they’ve all been good. They have homemade canolis that I’m a big fan of as well, and both of the folks that are behind the counter that I’ve met (I’m assuming they’re the owners) are soooo nice.”
Tiffany G., York, PA
