Zanti’s Deli is a go-to spot for Italian sandwiches in South County

Tucked into a narrow storefront in Sappington’s Concord Plaza, Zanti’s Deli is a great destination for your grab-and-go lunch or dinner needs. Sandwiches are made with bread from Pete’s Italian Baking Co., and the bread’s freshness signals this is a place that takes quality seriously. 

The chicken Parm sandwich was saucy and gooey without turning into a soggy mess, with breaded chicken that was juicy and not greasy. The Zanti’s Italiano with mortadella, salami, ham and capocollo is a solid example of the classic Italian sub; we loved the extra kick that came from crunchy, spicy giardiniera (a mild giardiniera is also available). If you don’t leave with a filled-to-order cannoli or two, you’ve missed out; the vanilla-spiked filling and crisp shell were everything we look for in the iconic Italian dessert.
