New Italian deli opens on Moana
It is what we in no way understood we needed—yet a further deli in Reno. Nonetheless, this a single provides one thing a tad different than some of our other favorites. Owned by Paolo Gaspari, former chef of La Famiglia, and operated by his nephews, Paolo’s Deli is bringing Gaspari’s Italian roots to a different Reno-centered eatery that just opened its doors in June.
Situated on Moana next to Bouchee’s Confections and Espresso & Comics, this seemingly simple deli is anything but, functioning like something you’d see in Italy—part corner keep, element refreshing sandwiches and some handmade pasta and confections, of course.
The best purpose to come here is to try out out 1 of Paolo’s signature Italian sandwiches. The formulation for each individual is uncomplicated, but the planning is perfection. The Meatball is the signature giving, with significant meatballs dripping in contemporary marinara and sprinkled with melty, mozzarella cheese, all enclosed in the softest hoagie roll you have ever experienced.
For me, it’s the Hen Caesar sandwich—a entire rooster breast and two massive leaves of romaine addressed with Caesar dressing and sprinkles of parmesan, earning it flavor like a rooster Caesar salad wrapped within of that exact heat hoagie roll.
Every concoction is unique from the next—not a typical of style throughout menu objects but rather incredibly personal specialties every perfected just before they are sent. Skilled tip: Having these delectable sandwiches can get messy quickly, so seize some napkins.
Even though the deli may perhaps draw in buyers on the lookout for filling typical Italian sandwiches, this location wouldn’t be Paolo’s if it did not up the ante with some other Italian cuisine. Foods are manufactured easy with entrees that cater to a get-and-bake clientele.
Instance: massive slabs of lasagna with your preference of meat or marinara sauce, precooked and straightforward to heat and consume at home and boasting handmade pasta of the maximum top quality. Other possibilities contain spaghetti and meatballs with meat sauce and eggplant parmigiana, at an unmatched price level ($7-10 every single). You can even order the meatballs independently, at rates Paolo tells you are much less than Complete Meals (which also sells new meatballs) and preferences that are a lot extra reliable.

Although it currently seems like Paolo’s is offering you a whole lot, the menu also includes salads—from classics like Caesar and caprese to more challenging-to-uncover calamari and insalata mista—and desserts, which includes contemporary tiramisu. The caprese salad offers a few thick slices of tomato, just about every topped with a slice of clean mozzarella and basil leaves ahead of it is drizzled with olive oil.
When you’re in, get your arms on some Italian grocery merchandise, displayed on a shelf inside of, or get residence chips to eat with your food. No matter of what you purchase, we’re really sure you’ll be pleased—we have not discovered everything we really don’t like yet.
