About Us

Owner Bob Portogallo started making his almost famous spicy giardiniera pepper blend as a hobby to give his friends and family during the holidays.  After numerous requests for more, he began to sell his giardiniera and Italian beef & sausage sandwiches at local farmers markets and festivals.  Soon after, he opened a sandwich shop in his hometown, Swissvale, PA.
After much success and encouragement from friends and family, here we are now in the former home of Jimmy's Donuts, a Braddock institution.  This isn't your average restaurant, so please enjoy your experience, and thanks for coming dahn n'at!
