You could walk past this place a million times thinking, “I’m not going in there, it’s for tourists.” Yes, it is smack in the middle of a lot of touristy Italian spots, and no, it doesn’t look too different from most of them. But it is. Walk in, pick your bread, and order a sandwich made from the wide variety of imported and Molinari-made cured meats. The Renzo and North Beach Special are particularly good.
