    If you want a REAL, AUTHENTIC Italian Deli sandwich, this is the ONLY place to go in Alameda. Sandwiches are always PACKED with premium meats. If you're … More lucky enough to go on a lasagna day, just get some and thank me later. Love the small, hometown feel too.

Santoro’s Covid-19 Rules and Regulations

Keep your face covered

During Shelter-in-Place, we have to operate a little bit differently.


Please place your order via phone before coming to the deli during the lunch rush hours.


When you come to the deli, we are only allowing one customer who is wearing a mask or face covering in at a time. We are taking this pandemic, our health and our customers’ health very seriously.


Right now we have a large volume of people calling in lunch orders all at the same time. If you get our answering machine, please do not leave a message. It means that we are helping customers on the other line. Please call back to speak to one of us. If you don’t want to wait, please call in your order earlier in the day. We won’t make your order until you are coming to pick it up.


Due to the increase in telephone orders during lunch, we cannot accept toasted sandwich orders after 11AM. Please call early if you want a toasted sandwich.


Meatball sandwiches are only available on Friday. They are subject to availability and may not be customized. When you order a meatball sandwich, you will receive it as Mike makes it.
