Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery Restaurant Review

: A culinary landmark since 1925, Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery in Santa Monica sells nearly every food product Italy exports, including authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano and some French and other European delicacies. Many patrons also like to pick up a sandwich (the famous "Godmother" features salami, mortadella, capicola, ham, prosciutto and provolone) and enjoy it on the patio. Cash or debit card only.
