Salerno’s Deli in Torrington, CT is my favorite Deli ever. They offer a choice of grinder roll, hard roll or Milite’s Italian bread; which is a very crusty and dense bread. I think the Italian bread is really what makes the sandwich.
I would make this a definite stop, and you can go eat somewhere outside. Pay the extra $1 for the Italian Bread. They also have fantastic soups; if the Chicken Chowder is on the menu I order it every time.
They have a fantastic list of Specialty Sandwiches, my favorite is the Diavolo.
