Description: 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.

Great selection of sandwiches (panini) & salads...it was so hard to choose!
Great vegetarian selections, I had roasted peppers with spinach, artichokes and fresh mozzarella. Couldn't decide between potato or pasta salad...waitress brought us samples of each. Both were tasty, but potato won. Daughter had a veggie sandwich with sprouts, avocado, spinach, tomato...it was huge! Husband had thick cut fried bologna...not my thing, but he loved it.
We had a sample of the house made pimento cheese with pita chips...yum.
Wish I had room for dessert...they looked and sounded great.
Service was warm and gracious...decor is lovely.
We will be back...there are about 25 more things on the menu I need to try!

Food was mediocre. Sandwich meat had no flavor. The pickles were bitter and stale. Restaurant felt dirty. Bus boy scraping food into trash and bus bins right near tables. Gross. Waitress took forever to bring us the check. Eaten here several times in past and its been going down hill. Will not go back.

My colleague and I enjoyed our lunch visit at this restaurant today. Our server was quite attentive but not annoying. Our sandwiches came out as ordered, tasted delicious!

Wonderful service. Large menu. Food is excellent. Pimento cheese is the best. We will definitely be back next trip to Columbia.

Great place for lunch. Stopped after our tour of USC and found it to be a welcome respite. Food was fresh and tasty and fairly priced, service was attentive, everything clean. Would definitely go again if we are in the area. I had the Sampler Salad and the chicken and tuna salads were done just right and the ginger vinagrette was really flavorful. Big portions though; could have shared two dishes between the 3 of us.
