About Tony's Italian Deli & Subs
Tony's Italian Deli and Subs is Chicago's premier source for authentic homemade and imported Italian foods. Located in Edison Park, a quaint residential community on Chicago's far northwest side, Tonyís has been a favorite for specialty Italian groceries and deli items.
From Italy to Edison Park
The Pontarelli family first came to America from Abruzzi, Italy in 1967 and opened Tonyís Italian Deli in 1978, capitalizing on their rich Italian heritage and featuring old family recipes. Maria and her husband Vito Dalmazio, who was born in Sicily, currently run the store with the help of their daughters, Josie and Jenny, and of course Mama (Emilia) Pontarelli! When you come to Tonyís you are treated like one of the family.
Fresh Authentic Italian Recipies
What sets Tonyís Italian Deli apart is the huge variety of delectable, homemade foods we offer. The coolers feature a tantalizing array of freshly prepared original recipe sauces and pastas. Donít go home without picking up some of our signature spaghetti sauce or home-made giardiniera. Our customers give our homemade pasta dishes, pizzas and Italian specialties rave reviews! For dessert, try some yummy tiramisu, lemon cookies or Italian Ice. And donít forget the fresh bread!
Old-Fashioned Grocery Store
Tonyís is also an old-fashioned, Italian style grocery store. We carry hard to find brands and imported items including a large selection of flavored olive oils and vinegars, canned tomatoes, pastas and espresso. You'll also find necessities for your kitchen and home, such as hand-crafted stoneware, Bialetti Moka Express coffee pots, cheese graters, pasta makers and Italian themed t-shirts, gifts and novelties!
Our deli counter serves mouthwatering, hot beef and sausage sandwiches along with a well-prepared variety of subs in three sizes from 6 inches to 15 inches, depending on your appetite. Weíve got a great little eat-in area right in the store for you to enjoy some time in our little version of Italy.
