DeFalco’s Italian Eatery, Grocery & Deli



After a couple of hit and misses on our meals in Scottsdale while here on a business trip we decided to take the advice of the manager at Old Town Cruisers where we went to rent bikes. And that was go to DeFalco’s…they have great sandwiches ! The huge Capacollo, Hard Salami & Provolone Sandwiches on fresh Focaccia bread we had for lunch were probably the best sandwiches we have ever had. Sadly we could eat only half because we were already enjoying our beautiful cappuccinos made by Antonio.


The freshness of the food, the outstanding service and incredibly reasonable prices made this place the highpoint of our few days stay in Scottsdale. In fact we loved the joint so much we came back later that evening for dinner. We shared an incredible 10 inch Centurian Calzone. My God was it good ! My wife being a very versatile cook has made calzones and makes them very well but not as good as these guys. And my lovely wife agreed !


And then we shared a giant slice of New York Cheesecake which was no doubt the tastiest cheesecake we have ever had. We even took a tub of their imported Italian Gelato back to the hotel. It had a very unique flavor and I thought it was great. If we had known from day one how good this deli was we would have eaten here every day. As it is this is the only place we have dined at twice in the same day. If you are looking for an amazing place to enjoy a high quality breakfast, lunch or dinner in Scottsdale then this is the place !
