Pirolo's Panino (SOBE) - Lobster Roll, an Amazing Sandwich

tpigeon Jun 7, 2013 01:34 PM

I am no expert on Lobster Rolls but this is easily the best one I had in Miami. It is superior to the Dutch's (which I thought was great) and blows away the mini lobster rolls at PB Sushi and Steak (which I like too).

Pirolo's Panino is located at Macchialina and they deliver. This is a must try folks.

    Had the lobster roll side by side with the meatball and I like the meatball better. Lobster roll is now my second favorite.

      Have you tried the one at Joe's takeout?

        A long time ago. It was not my favorite.

        I had a great trifecta on Friday. Loved the messy, juicy Roast Pork with broccoli raab, fontina and calabrese chilies.

        Mike's meatballs are great and his sauce is probably the best i town so his meatball parm is a winner.

        I always defer to SteveBm when it comes to lobster rolls but I've had my fair share. This is the best version I've had in Miami. Loaded with nice pieces of Maine lobster, minimal to no mayo and served on a nice buttered bun. Neptune Oyster Bar? Nope but that's a tough comparison as it is one of best in nation. Miami's best, I think so.

        On a side note the bread they were using on my visit was perfect. Nice crust on the outside with a nice chew on the inside.

        The Banh Mi(lano) sounds ridiculous. House made testa, mortadella and Asian pickles BOOM!!!

        Open M-S 12-3 with delivery 1st to 41st St Miami Beach

          Had the Banh Milano and it was about as good as the godfather.

          My favorites are so far...
          1) Lobster Roll
          2) Meatball Sub -- you are not crazy if you think this is #1
          3) Roast pork
          4) Godfather and Banh Milano (tie)

          Note: All of these sandwiches are great.

          FWIW Jamie DeRosa has been raving about the Roast Pork and Meatball as well.

              The Godfather was also very good.
