We ordered delivery from Cardone’s for the office today and although the crew was abridged, we certainly ate well. Phone service was really pleasant and although it took a while to arrive, everything was well packed and the panini were warm. We ordered a Wartime Five Families Sandwich ($8.25) which was reported to be of excellent quality, a meatball sandwich ($6.99) which surprisingly was judged less tasty and well constructed than the Palermo’s model and a cheese and tomato ($6.75) and Portobello panini, ($7.25) both of which I would have again. I’m not crazy about pasta salad in general nor about Cardone’s in particular but the potato salad is excellent and at $2.95 a lb. I’ll sneak it in to parties this summer.
We also got half a dozen freshly made and delicious (no citron! Yeah!) cannoli. The menu is limited and unless you are a big cheese and/or pork eater, there aren’t a lot of choices but even with the teensy selection, Cardone’s is certainly a contender for being our very favorite delivery resource in the neighborhood.
