This place is generally fantastic. A great selection of cheeses and meats at a very reasonable price. As far as I can tell it's consistently cheaper than the competition. Great location, excellent gourmet food and always fresh. The owner Marco runs a tight ship too, so I suspect this place will stay good for some time.
One big caveat though, the sandwich delivery seems to always come out much more expensive than pick-up. Sandwiches are charged based on the amount of fillings you have(cheese, meat, lettuce, tomato) so some variance is to be expected every time. However recently the price for delivery seems to have gone up despite there being no delivery fee and the cheeses remaining basically the same price.Sandwiches that were previously about 50k consistently now cost about 75k, and a more expensive cheese/meat combination that used to cost 75-80k now costs about 100k.
I pulled the staff up on this once, and in the process found out they had overcharged me for the ravioli I had delivered too.
As a test, I've gone in to order the same sandwiches over the counter, and they came out much cheaper.
Marco if you're reading this, I love your shop, but you need to keep an eye on how much the staff are charging for delivery items. Something strange is happening with your delivery.
