Conte di Savoia

(November 27, 2011)
1438 W. Taylor St., Chicago, IL 60607
Conte di Savoia on Urbanspoon

A Quick Word:
Conte di Savoia is a great sub shop in Little Italy!  They make all their subs fresh to order and they are decent sized (6 inch or 8 inch) depending on how hungry you are. The price is a little bit more expensive than the other sub shops around chicago (which I will post later on).  But if you want a fresh italian type sub.. this is a good option.

What I Ate:

Italian Sub

Ham, salami, cappocollo, and provolone cheese make up the inside of this sub!  And you can have additional toppings like lettuce, tomato, onion, and a red vinaigrette for no extra cost.  I like to add hot giardinera... but these peppers cost a little extra but is well worth it!  The meat is definitely fresh (cut when you order) and the bread has a nice chewiness to it... and its not too tough!  I do wish the ham was an italian ham and not just an American type ham... And also, they don't stack the meat on like other sub shops... just pointing it out!

Pastrami Sub

The pastrami was not as good as I was hoping for.  The meat was definitely fresh and the lettuce, tomato, etc was also delicious on the sub.  It gave a nice crisp texture to the sub and with mustard and the vinaigrette there was even more flavor.  I would stick to the italian sub though!

The DOs/DON'Ts:

- Always check Groupon Now for a deal to this place... whenever I want to eat here there seems to always be a groupon offer which definitely helps the budget!
- Do order the 8 inch sub... the 6 inch one isn't that filling!
- Come for lunch!  They have a sub, chips, drink combo for I believe $4.50 which is extremely cheap... Definitely worth it at that price!

- Don't forget to add the hot giardinera... it definitely makes the sub that much better!
- Don't forget to FEED THE METER!... lots of cops on Taylor St. and you don't want a parking ticket!

How far would I walk for this food?
