ALIDORO is an artisanal Italian quick-serve restaurant concept and Zagat’s #1-rated sandwich in NYC. Born in Soho in 1986, we are a company and cuisine that embody two of the most prolific regions of food culture in the world. Since then, New Yorkers and tourists alike have lined up to get a taste of the city’s most authentic Italian sandwiches. Now, after almost three decades, we have opened additional locations at Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, The Hugh @ 601 Lexington Ave, Moynihan Train Hall @ Penn Station and soon Dekalb Market in downtown Brooklyn; as well as temporary pop-up concepts at The Bowery Market & The Oasis in Wynwood, Miami.

ALIDORO has become an industry leader in “upscale QSR”. We source and prepare all of our ingredients either locally or directly from Italy. Never sacrificing quality, we adhere not only to utilizing the finest Italian ingredients, but also to the methods by which they are prepared and served. This careful attention to detail traces back to our original owner’s Italian roots in Venice, where he grew up making pizzas and sandwiches in his parents’ restaurant, pizzeria and supermarket. “For me, it’s always just been about sharing my authentic Italian culinary journey with as many people as I can.” That authenticity shines through with each bite of anything ALIDORO.

Our brand honors tradition while folding innovation into its DNA, and our customers love the marriage of the old with the new. ALIDORO’s comprehensive offering exceeds individual sandwiches and includes full-scale catering, charcuterie & snacking platters, salads, desserts and a full breakfast & coffee menu. Customers gravitate to our warm, Tuscan-rustic styled shops, where our golden wings logo is instantly recognizable to local foodies. Our proprietary toppings and spreads are all made in-house and our bread is baked and delivered fresh daily. Any of our sandwiches can be prepared cold or hot, which has added an entirely new dynamic to our business in combating seasonality.

On one hand, we’re classically Italian, importing most of our ingredients and applying precise, classical European preparation tactics passed down from generational families. On the other hand, we are driven by innovation and a desire to expand the market opportunity through a bespoke approach. Every method we employ is creative yet purposeful and authentic, so in that sense, we see it very much in the spirit of NYC. We appreciate your interest in our brand story and are excited for what the future holds – we can’t wait to serve you.
