About Old World Delicatessen
Since 1969, Old World Delicatessen has been providing the Covina area with delicious subs, clubs, and open-faced sandwiches. The D’Aquila family moved from Queens to California in 1968. Their father, Ben, quickly saw the opportunity to establish a classic New York-style deli in an area that was severely lacking. As a butcher, Ben was uniquely qualified to show the local folks what they’d been missing.
By 1974, there were several locations serving up NY-style sandwiches and platters, giving Californians a taste of the East Coast. Since then, Old World Delicatessen has become a sandwich staple in the area and the capital for great deli meats and cheeses.
