Went to deli 3 times during the weekend. Meatballs, salad, turkey and risotto - all were very good. Recommended.

Every time we come to Shell Beach (SB), we hit DePalo's for dinner. We stay at a local hotel that doesn't always have a microwave. The last time we stayed in SB we picked up some food and asked that it be heated up. When we got back to our room maybe 3 minutes later, the food was cold. This... More

This is a perfect place to get the fixings for a picnic. They have gourmet sandwiches and salads and a large collection of wine. Located right along Rt. 101.

My wife and I were staying at the Spyglass Inn across the street. I needed a bottle of wine and the Inn recommended DePalo & Sons, wow, this place is packed with great eats and fine wine. We ended up getting a few salads from the deli and eating in our room, it was yummy.

Endless rain limits calorie burning, and sometimes you want a tasty sandwich rather than an expensive sit-down meal you won't finish (and can't take home). Twice in four days we had them make dinner which we took to our hotel -- and also on our drives. Great turkey with cranberry. Three Sister is three small sandwiches with different meat --... More

Stopped here to pick up some sandwiches and chips. We got a chicken caesar and a Roma turkey. The chicken caesar was seriously overdressed and chicken looked a little strange, but otherwise tasted fine. The turkey sandwich was also a bit sloppy, but was amazing. The store is cramped, so try to stop by when they aren't busy. Also, considering... More

Love it's market's deli especially daily made Dr Gidon's fresh mozzarella, vegetable frittata, rotisserie chicken, etc. Great wine and spirits selection. The only market in the area with best choices of tequila and limoncello.
