Time Out says

Neighborhood regulars flock to Fontano's Subs for lunch. Sandwiches on French bread packed with cold cuts and cheeser ranging from six inches to three feet are abound. And while you can make your own concoction up, we'd encourage you to grab the Blockbuster–filled with ham, salami, capicola, provolone and Swiss cheese topped with lettuce, tomato, mayo, oil and vinegar and your choice of hot or mild giardiniera.

This is such a great and classic Italian sandwich shop. It's super small but the menu isn't. I loving going here for lunch! Their Italian sub is a must.

It really doesn't get more old school than this. In the heart of Little Italy, just a block north of Taylor St, is an establishment that has been owned by the same family since the beginning. They have a few locations in the city, but if you want the true feeling of what this place is about, you need to come to Little Italy. It is almost impossible to leave this place without being in a food coma. From the incredible spread of Italian meats, to the family recipe for meatballs...this place will make you feel like you're a part of their big Italian family. Prices are very reasonable and have sizes starting at 6inches...all the way up to their 3 ft party sub. I recommend always looking for the daily specials like their italian beef, or the pot roast sub with roasted peppers.
