Eat-In and Take-Out Menu

Just about anything we create in our kitchen and sell in our restaurant, we can prepare for takeout – from a snack or a sandwich to a full breakfast, lunch or dinner.

We pride ourselves on using fresh ingredients and making everything from scratch.

“I learned to cook from my mother and grandmother in a house always smelling of fresh garlic, basil and parsley,” said Dominick LaMantia, owner of The Gourmet Deli. “I learned from them that it’s got to be fresh. Don’t cut corners. You want it to taste good. I’m a very picky eater with very high standards. If I don’t eat it, I won’t sell it.”

LaMantia described his place as “an Italian-style deli,” offering breakfast and lunch. You can sit down for a full meal, take anything out or order catering for all occasions.

“Always a great meal here,” said a reviewer on “Staff is friendly. Owner is there almost all the time. One of my favorites is the chicken cheese steak with spinach and roasted peppers! Angel hair pasta salad is awesome. Nice salad bar. Tons of room to sit down and eat. Biggest bacon egg and cheese you will get for the money!”

Added another reviewer: “The sandwiches are always fantastic and the help goes out of their way to accommodate you.”

And a third wrote: “The guys behind the counter were so friendly and helpful. The owner let us try a sample of their famous angel hair pasta, which was the best I’ve ever had. … Can’t wait to come back.”

Here’s our menu for eat-in and take-out. We think you’ll enjoy eating our food as much as we enjoy preparing it.

And here’s a tip. If you’re pressed for time, order ahead. Call us and we’ll do our best to have your food waiting for you when you arrive. Enjoy.
