This is one of the main lunch go-tos in Santa Monica, which means there’s almost always a line. The Godmother sub is the order of choice for everyone, us included, though we like to swap the pepper salad for pepperoncini for a little extra heat. Also on point: their tuna salad, and the turkey pesto and eggplant parm. While you wait for the deli to call your number, browse the market—it’s stocked with authentic, imported Italian goods; the pasta and sauce selections are particularly impressive.
