High quality, fresh cold cut subs can be hard to come by – especially for The Traveling Twosome.  Perhaps it is because we have such high expectations in Italian subs.  I grew up the youngest son of a Sicilian restaurant entrepreneur and Char grew up in New York City, one of the food capitals of America.  But nestled in a quiet office complex in Germantown (a suburb of Memphis), Vanelli’s Deli leaves us satisfied!

Since Vanelli’s Deli opened, it has acquired quite a loyal customer base.  Brothers Charles, Daniel, Thomas and Phil Vanelli prepare authentic East Coast style cold cut subs with thinly cut, high quality meats including speck, prosciutto, capicolla, pepperoni, etc.  My favorite is The ‘Ami, dressed with Vanelli’s homemade Italian dressing.  Char’s favorite is the Panino Imbottito which is dressed with a delicious gourmet homemade garlic mayonnaise.

In addition to great sandwiches, salads, and pastas, Vanelli’s also sells fresh deli items such as meats, cheeses, and homemade sauces.  Take home any of your favorite recipes from Vanelli’s for your event or party.  Vanelli’s also provides catering orders and delivery for groups of 10 or more.

Vanelli’s Deli is located at 7873 Farmington Blvd in Germantown and is open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm.  If you’ve got a taste for authentic Italian deli sandwiches and pasta plates, you’ll want to check out Vanelli’s – a Traveling Twosome favorite!

Char’s Comments:  Honestly this is by far the best deli I have been to in many years. Since leaving the East Coast (NY and Boston area) I have missed good Italian sub sandwiches. How pleasantly surprised I was when Louis had taken me to Vanelli’s Deli where I enjoyed a wonderful masterpiece of flavors that was tantalizing my every taste bud. I was hooked by first bite! Thanks Vanelli’s Deli and all who work there for bringing a “touch of home” to our neighborhood.
