Hot Italian @ Mazzaro’s

MazzarosWow, wow, wow! Did I mention WOW! A friend mine asked me if I had ever been here before and when I said “no” we basically dropped everything and hit the road.

Well worth the trip, absolutely amazing. We got there right around 11:45 and if you have been there for lunch before you know that this is right in the height of prime time. There are a few segments to the shop. The front area is more of a produce/grocery, there is a side room that is all wine and cheese, and the back is where the magic happens.

In the back of the store, which is the largest part, you have the bakery and deli. All different kinds of pastries, Italian meals, deli meats, and sandwiches. If you are a first timer don’t go there starving because you will want to eat everything!

I went with the traditional Italian Sub, this was a masterpiece. I wanted something a bit spicy too so I had them toss on some extra banana peppers. But, OMG the toasted bread and the Italian dressing drizzle, this was a “time for a nap” kind of sandwich.

I am going to go out and say this is the hands down best Italian deli in the area.

Drop what you are doing and go now!

  1. I’m really not sure what you’re trying to accomplish here. One sandwich does not make a restaurant review. And do you EVER eat anything you don’t like? Just curious.

    • Yes, one sandwich make a review, that is why its posted. Now if you go to Mazzaro’s you have a sandwich recommendation. Very complex, we understand your confusion.

      Yes, we do eat things we do not like, however we choose not to write about those places. We are not about crapping on places and kicking them while they are down. So if you are looking for a site to bash a place we are probably not you best bet. Tampa Bay is Awesome and we will continue to highlight what in out opinion, is awesome.

  2. I think “Wow”seems to be the word of the day. Not posting about about bad food and service received does not help people determine where to spend their dining dollars.

    • The concept of abundance and promoting what is awesome about Tampa Bay doesn’t seem to be your style. Your input is appreciated, thanks for stopping by

  3. Why “it’s” posted (fyi). And reading about both what IS and ISN’T awesome about the Tampa Bay food scene is my “style”. Spelling skills and being an honest critic regardless of the venue earns my respect and following. Best of luck to you.
