Overpriced, poor service, average food. We are a family of four and use TripAdvisor and Yelp to try different restaurants while traveling. We seek out places that are highly rated but are not franchised. We went for a Saturday lunch. The food was very average,...More

This place is tucked into a neighborhood near the college. If you are not looking for it, you will miss it. I thought it was a formal atmosphere but. I was wrong. It appears as an upscale deli. There is such a variety & everything...More

DiPrato's Delicatessen opened May 2004, and, today, the DiPrato's Experience affords patrons a rewarding escape from ordinary fare. The reward? Delectable food, beautiful décor, and a beguiling balance: friendly service and a pleasant, neighborly feeling. DiPrato's, located where the Purple Cow grocer operated, graces a quiet neighborhood barely off the beaten path. Driving up, you notice the rich red brick, set off by greenery, and spacious windows where light pours in. Approaching the wooden, double-door entrance, a thought comes to mind. You're about to enjoy the DiPrato's Experience. You could say a Southern breeze laden with Italian accents drifts through this New York style delicatessen. Dine if you like on the patio where the glassy splash of falling water melts away concerns. Pita chips and pimento cheese are a real treat! Blend Dianne Light and Bill Prato's presence and culinary skills and you get a wonderfully popular delicatessen-DiPrato's.
