I stopped by here for a late, quick lunch recently. The menu includes several sandwiches, several Italian-American inspired. I got the sausage roll for $6.50, which had just come out of the oven. It is a relatively thin layer of dough (not much yeasted rise, like I expect in stromboli), rolled with house-made sausage and mozzarella, with pickled peppers and marinara sauce on the side. The roll looked a bit limp and underdone, but the flavor was good, and the whole thing melded into a gooey sausagey whole. I don't know if I'll order the roll again, but the tomato sauce was vibrant enough to make me want to come back and try the meatball sub.
