Di Pasquale’s is an authentic Italian Deli just north of Canton. I had heard great things and they were featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. For lunch a friend and I could’t what we were in the mood for, I wanted a sandwich and she wanted something Italian. I had remembered hearing about Di Pasquale’s and what we were craving was exactly what they serve so we headed over.
When we walked in, we were met with a deli counter packed with fresh looking Italian delicacies such as meatballs, salads, fresh mozzarella, pastas and more. After looking over the menu, my friend decided to order the Baked Ziti. This picture does it no justice, the portion is colossal and came with layer after layer of fresh made ziti and tons of cheesy goodness. This was hands down, probably the best baked ziti either of us have ever had.
I decided to order one of their Italian sandwiches and went with the Rustico. The sandwich was dry cured Filet Mignon, Marinated Eggplant & Roasted Sweet Peppers, Baby Greens with Balsamic Vinegar on Ciabatta Bread. This sandwich was packed with flavor and also massive. The bread was clearly baked freshly in house and it was maybe one of the best sandwiches I’ve had to date, and I like sandwiches.
My friend and I also shared an order of the Italian Fries. They were simply sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper but a great addition to our meal, not too greasy, perfectly crispy and different from a standard french fry.
