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, Tony’s has been a favorite for specialty Italian groceries and deli items.
From Italy to Edison Park
Owners Vito Dalmazio born in Sicily (Ciminna) and wife Maria (Pontarelli) Dalmazio born in Abruzzo, Italy have been owners of Tony's since 1978. With the help of their daughters (co-owners), Jennifer and Josie, the family has focused on their rich Italian heritage and feature old family recipes that has kept Tony's as the #1 Italian deli and subs in Chicago to date.

“Old-school Italian meatballs swimming in house-made marinara and blanketed in melted provolone, nestled into fresh white bread at Tony’s Italian Deli and Subs. The Dalmazio family has been serving these Sicilian-recipe meatballs since they opened the small deli and imported-goods grocery in Edison Park in 1978.”
