    This cured meat shop in Seattle's Pioneer Square district comes care of the Batali family, the very same that gave us star chef Mario Batali. Salumi has, bar none, the best salami, pepperoni and other deli slices in the Pacific Northwest. They spice, cure, smoke and dry all their meats in-house, so the smell in the shop is amazing. People literally line up around the block to get lunch at Salumi. The meat, cheese and antipasto plates are a must. The more variety, the better.

    Rule #1: Get there before 11:30AM if you don't want to run the risk of not getting a sandwich because they've run out of bread. Chef Mario Batali's father's salumeria and Italian deli is *that* popular. Rule #2: The staff with NY attitude ara hilarious, but be prepared for some joshing around. Rule #3: Definitely take the free samples that they're handing out while you wait in the long, long line to avoid being famished by the time you get to the front. Rule #4: Take the sandwich makers' advice about which cheese to pair with which of the house-cured meats. Not that they aren't all awesome, but some go together better than others.

    I can see why this place always has a line. And it's not just because of their cured meats. As a vegetarian, I didn't think I'd be able to eat anything at this place but I was proved wrong. Not only do they have vegetarian options, their vegetarian options are amazingly delicious. Loved the eggplant sandwich as well as their veg roast.

    Anthony Bourdain said that this place should be a UNESCO world heritage site...and I agree with him. This place is the holy of holies when it comes to Italian sandwiches.
    Try their meatball sub..if you have nothing you need to do for the rest of the day. Their fresh bread and home cured meats are also incredible.
    Just get ready to wait in line.

    amazing cured meats. beautifully crafted, larger-than-your-face, sandwiches, owned by Mario Batali's parents.

    The culatello sandwich was simple in appearance but incredibly complex in flavor. You can also have the shop cure a meat just for you, which is pretty cool.

    They cure their own meat with many flavors. Among my favorites are mole, paprika & finocchio. As if that's not enough, they serve a killer hot lunch with dishes like grilled lamb, porchetta & meat balls. One of my go-to place in Seattle.

    This was the best salami I have every had. It was a great lunch place! Grab a sandwich and a drink and walk a block or two to one of the many parks and sit down and enjoy the fresh air!

    When I saw the line I said to myself "This better be worth it". And it was! I've never had salami that tasted so good before and I definitely realized why they had such a huge line up. We had the tasting platter and two sandwiches. Unfortunately we didn't get to try the pasta or the meatballs, they were sold out!

    This place topped all the places I ate at in Seattle. Never had a sandwich that put me on the borderline of sleep and a heart attack. Do read up on when to go. The lines are long and they aren't open on the weekends.

    If you love mouth-watering deli sandwiches that will make you want to commit gluttony then try this place. I would advise you to take your patience with you because there is usually a long line.
