Gioia's Deli

Order online at gioiasdeli.com or swing by for pick up at Gioia's location in Creve Coeur or on The Hill.

An institution on the Hill since 1918, Gioia's Deli began its life as a grocery store but is now a sandwich shop. Gioia's is most famous for its hot salami, or Salam de Testa: a thick, soft salami made from beef and -- yes -- pork snouts. The flavor is rich and earthy and delicious. Try it on its own or in the "Italian trio" with mortadella and Genoa salami, peperoncini, onions and cheese on toasted garlic bread. Gioia's salsiccia is tasty, too, especially when smothered with melting mozzarella cheese.
