Canella's Italian Deli
9611 Bel Air Rd, Nottingham, MD
Everyday when I come home from work, I can't help but notice Canella's Italian Deli. Well, curiosity drove me to visit this place where most have said its the best.
I entered the place today and I have to say there was a strong stench like a backup occurred. Now, I don't blame the place for the misty odor but it did detract me from enjoying whatever aroma from the homemade food. I reviewed the menu, mostly hoagies, cold and hot, nice selection of salads. This was for lunch so I leaned towards a hot hoagie. As a Native New Yorker, its called a sub. My favorite hot sub was Italian sausage links with peppers and onions with a drizzle of olive oil and provolone cheese. I had to wait a little but when it came out, it was piping hot and the sub hero was crispy and chewy.
It was one of the best sausage subs I had in awhile. I do like Jersey Mike's subs and Subway but the difference in Canella's is the sub roll. It was nice and crispy and soft and chewy. The sausage contents with onions and peppers was definitely piping hot.
It was delicious so on a scale of 1 to 5 and 5 being the best, I have to give a "5" for the sub but a 2 on that terrible smell.
I would visit this place again to give them a second chance.
