Though the sandwich was delicious, it was somewhat spoiled by the unnecessary rudeness.

Yea I said it, best sandwiches in NYC. You won't find better bread and ingredients anywhere. I love hearing about all the people put off by the service because it just makes the line shorter for me!

If you are not nice to people, why are you in business? The blond lady was really rude to me when I asked my change back. The sandwiches are good, but I will not return because of such poor behavior.

I have been a soho resident for years and have been patronizing Alidoro for a long time. They have wonderful sandwiches but lately, I cannot stand how rude the owners wife is to customers. I am tired of hearing, " if it's not in the menu, we don't have it!" it's fine to not have something, but to be scolded after waiting in a 10 minute line and listen as others are scolded for asking questions has finally pushed me over the edge. I refuse to ever return to the shop as a result of her behavior.

Great sandwiches (brando, cabiria are my favorites). This place is no frills, reminds you of the mom 'n pop stores you grew up with. Owners are very pleasant and will give attitude if it's warranted - as it should be! Definitely recommend it for a fresh, only the best ingredients.

Delicious sandwiches! While $10 can be expensive for a sandwich, it's worth it at this place. Wonderful, fresh ingredients - the smoked mozzarella is the best around! People who complain about the service or the signs seem a bit thin-skinned to me. Yes, the owners can be business-like. but, if you don't go in there with a consumer entitlement complex the size of Manhattan, you're good to go.

I've been going to this place for about 3 years now since a friend introduced me to it back when it was called Melampo. I still believe that they make one of the best and freshest Italian sandwiches in NYC, but lately it seems like success has gone to their heads. For example, why is the shop now filled with all of these makeshift arrogant signs/warnings to customers? We are loyal and are paying you nearly $12 for a sandwich? Also, the last time I was there, myself and a whole line of people had to wait on a group of firemen who pulled up in their truck (no phone call or advance order) and barged in front of everyone to place their order. Things like this make me think that Alidoro is heading in the wrong direction, and I think that other faithful customers might agree with me. Yes they still make one of the best sandwiches in NYC, but that's just part of the business.
