Deli in Long Beach?

Anyone know of a good Delicatessen near the Belmont Heights/ Shore area?

  1. There's an italian deli..Angelo's in Belmont Shore, on the corner of Laverne & 2nd. Very good. Then there's the gourmet deli place, Olives, on Broadway just west of Redondo.

        I third Angelos...and they have this garlic spread that, although I left LB over five years ago, I still dream about it.

        Olives is ok.

          theres another deli on santa fe and anaheim . cant remember the name of it though

            that's santa fe importers. it's ok. i can occasionally find great stuff there: golden pheasant polenta, salted anchovies. but sandwiches are just ok, though it has a great reputation.

            depending on what you mean by "deli", I'd recommend Naples Gourmet Grocers. they do have sandwiches, but i haven't tried any yet. mostly, they've got amazing salumi, cheese, prosciutto, etc. and they're just starting out and could use a push.

    1. What are some of Angelo's specialties? I am in Palos Verdes, just wondering if it's worth the trip. Went up to Roma's in Pasadena for the sausages, and yes they are good, as were the beef and cheese ravioli.

        I'm all about the calabrese, spicy salami with gorgonzola on ciabatta with garlic pesto spread. For pics...

      2. There's an AWESOME deli in downtown on Ocean & Linden called Modica's. Unbelievable sandwiches: prosciutto, pastrami...everything they make is great.

        1. O.K., I am going, just read some more reviews from others about Angelo's sandwhiches. Has anyone ever purchased and eaten their ravioli? Do they have good sausage for grilling? I will definetly be picking up a tub of that garlic sauce. My mouth is watering and I haven't even had it yet!
