Giugni's Deli

$$$$(707) 963-3421
Hours:MON
10AM-3PM

If you’re in need of a sandwich, this St. Helena institution is where you want to be. Giugni’s is every bit the old-timey country store you’d expect in a small town, with shelves filled with classic candies, a couple of tables, and a very busy takeout operation. There are no fancy designer sandwiches here: it’s a build-your-own situation with an extensive list of meats, cheeses, and add-ons. The only mandatory move is the tangy Giugni Juice, (a secret sauce with herbs and a red wine vinegar base) with a cult following that gets poured liberally on top of every sandwich—although we prefer it on the side to avoid them getting soggy, especially if we’re taking them on the road.
