The Zagat Review
“Fresh, crispy” bread plus “so many choices” of “high-quality” meats and cheeses add up to “heavenly” , “humongous” panini at these “primo” Italian sandwich shops; just brace for “long lines” at lunchtime, “grumpy” counter service and a cash-only policy, not to mention limited seating ( “take it to go and enjoy” ).

Zagat Mentions of Alidoro

Bread was tasty, but probably wouldn't visit again. I just tried the meatless sandwiches so I can't speak much on the meat sandwiches. I do appreciate how they had more than one sandwich without meat on them.

I had the Alidoro sandwich on seeded semolina. I got it hot as well. It was one of the best I've had. Amazing all around, and very fresh and well done. Would highly suggest visiting.

Melampo was my go to for sandwiches when I was living in SOHO. When it became Alidoro I'd pop in every time I was in the neighborhood because the sandwiches were still excellent. Imagine my surprise and delight when I found out there was another location in Midtown, a few blocks away from my new office. NOT THAT SAME. It's like they took everything they new about making a great sandwich and then promptly forgot it. I tried the Alidoro, a relatively new addition to the menu, or at least the menu I was familiar with. It was so loaded with hot peppers and "hot spread" that it was simply inedible, literally. I ate about half and threw the rest of my 16 dollar sandwich in the trash. There was so much of this stuff that the bread had become soggy during the few block walk back to my office. The peppers were like some kind of invading army, the prosciutto just registered as something chewy, and forget about trying to taste the mushroom paste or fennel. I'm willing to give them a second chance and go back and get the Matthew, a classic. But if that sandwich is any indication of the current quality, well, lets just say I'm doing my best to manage expectations.
