Had the Ahi sandwich OMG awesome!!!!Amanda!!! Is the best waitress ever!!!! She made sure we where taken care of. Frank thank you for the awesome Blues music!!!!!
We just enjoyed wine Wednesday at Stefano's. It was amazing! Started of with two great wines and a meat, cheese, and fruit platter that was great. Next the artichoke appetizer, followed by the best pork shoulder with carrots I've ever eaten. Top it off with pumpkin creme brûlée that was delicious. All for $20. Including wine and great service More...
Been their twice today with 11 friends great Service great food ... the owner is very nice
What an amazing place! They have another location in Yoruba Linda also - they're a family ran Italian restaurant that's been around a while and they have the freshest ingredients and the most delicious house made sauces their sandwiches have so MUCH MEAT!! And their LARGE cheeseboard is free with any wine bottle purchase Definitely come try this place out! It was on of the most relaxing Sunday brunches I've ever had in a while More...
I am so impressed and soo happy gf and I came here for lunch. Their tritip sandwich and seared tuna salad were my favs.
Nice breakfast/lunch find!!! The food is delicious, appealing and fresh with a generous portion served. Place is fresh and clean with a friendly environment. I have had there salads and sandwiches and have always been happy with my meal. More...
I love the pastrami here!! So delicious, along with many others.. honey baked ham and the sweets yum! It's a hidden gem!
Watch for great specials on their Facebook page! They advertise periodic items such as lobster rolls plus a rotating menu of takeout family meal deals (preorder required for family meals). The paninis are creative and delicious. The salads are generously portioned and fresh. Prime Rib is available on Friday nights. Hands down the best desserts! Nice wine and beer selection. More...
Came for the music!! Blues!!! Awesome!!Service was incredible!! Amanda was very good with allowing us time to read over the menu. Thank you Amanda for helping the elderly decide on dinner.Differently will recommend this place to my family & friends. More...
Our family has been enjoying Stefano's food and service now for about a year and half. We love Friday nights live music and their prime rib is amazing! The menu is loaded with unique menu items wether breakfast lunch or dinner. Truly friendly service just makes the experience better.One of my favorites is a tuna sandwich on squaw bread with lettuce, onion and tomato. Only place I know who gives the customer so many options. BTW for the reviewer complaining their tuna sandwich only had tuna, mayo and cheese, sorry you ordered it without specifying you wanted it the way you like it the menu clearly offer options More...
I don't think there's anything there that I have tried that I did not like. This time I got a side of Parmesan risotto and I must say it is the best I've ever had. I wish I had gotten more since I live in Long Beach and it's a bit of a drive. Their hams are spectacular and wonderful for holidays but be prepared to wait in one heck of a line or get it a couple days early. I was looking forward to their meatloaf sandwich but it was not available on the day I went. I was cheered up by the risotto More...
I had the Golden Baked Ham and Swiss sandwich for lunch the other day. It was delicious!! The ham was flavorful. I loved it!
Oh my! Ordered the Lobster Ravioli family dinner last week. It was stuffed with lobster meat. Very decadent and delicious. A special treat that was incredibly priced for what we got. Highly recommend trying it if you like lobster!! More...
I've lived in Yorba Linda for over 10 years and never tried this place. But definitely so good and the service is wonderful!
Foid is always great; as well as the service
Call this a busy sandwich shop, because it really is! It's located at a small little plaza, that looks more like an industrial parking lot. But, that just means lots of parking for you, friends! Once you walk in, you'll see tons of people lining up almost out the door. You can take a peek at other patrons, with their stacked sandwiches of goodness on their plates, happily eating away. The one goodness I got to try was the Sorrento sandwich. Just the right amount of toasty bread, with savoryness in every bite. Service is just standard here, though employees are friendly and smile. My only thing about this place is that there are not enough tables here to enjoy your sandwich! You also have to "table watch" and grab one once people leave. That's just a little stressful, especially when you just want to sit down and enjoy your meal. Hopefully, Stefano's will open up some new tables! More...
I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!! you can't go wrong with anything on the menu and I am not ashamed at all to admit, I'm a regular. Really cool local spot with quality foods. You can taste the love and homemadeness in their food and desserts. Emily and Sarah are the sweetest.I bought cheesecake and breadpudding for my boyfriend as a celebratory for his promotion and shared it with them and they wrote congratulations on it. It was the sweetest and cutest thing ever!!! What sweet gals and great service. More...
I like simple and delicious. The ham and Swiss panini is just that!! My wife is a Trevi fan. I've also ordered that and it is delicious too. My family has ordered almost everything on their menu and are never disappointed. Easily my favorite sandwich joint (paninis are way better than their sandwiches in my opinion, but my teenage daughter would disagree). Sides are solid- my girls love the tomato soup. A couple friends swear by the Burg-ini but I have not tried it yet. Apparently it's large and filling and tasty. More...
Very good food, friendly atmosphere.
It's about time I wrote a review! My family loves Stefano's. We've had them cater many birthdays/events and even ordered food from them for Thanksgiving dinner a few times. My husband is addicted to the tortellini salad and I love their paninis. Went in again this week after my physical therapy session that's in the Packing House next door. Service was great and my to-go order was pretty quick. Wonderful local place to eat More...
What a great date night at an awesome price! Frank Stefano and his team put on a great four course wine pairing, with Justin wines. Delicious! Staff and Frank could not be more attentive. That's why this place endures! More...
My friend told me about this place. He said they had the best sandwiches in the area. I was naturally skeptic, because most of the other places are disappointing. That being said, I went there today and had an amazing Cubano Panini. It was really excellent! Also the owner was super nice. I will most definitely eat here all the time. And make sure to to tell all my friends about this killer spot. Highly recommend this place for sure. Also, they have a great breakfast menu. I will look forward to trying that out soon. Blueberry pancakes, woot woot ! More...
Superb ambience and super personal service. The food was fresh and enchanting. Will absolutely recommend this place to friends and family. Convenient rates and large meals. Great job. More...
Yummiest Turkey, avocado, olive , cucumbers and honey mustard on squaw bread, so delish! Portions are so generous, I could only eat half
First time here and definitely not my last. Stefano's cubano was absolutely delicious!! Best sandwich I've had in a while! I'm glad I chose to go here instead of subway. Lol! More...
Honestly the place speaks for itself. They have it figured out and it's a must go for a quick eats. I'll drive here from out of town, it's that good!
So the fam and I went and checked out Stefano's tonight based on recommendations. WOOOOOOWWWWW!!! DELISH!!! We all had something different. My daughter went for the meatball sub because she's a connoisseur (no cheese cuz she's weird) and she gave it a solid two thumbs up. Hubby had the Old World Sub which was a cold Italian sub that he really enjoyed along with some yummy tortellini salad. I was torn between the Romeo and the Smashy. Since my son ordered the Romeo I took a bite, tri tip panini with lots of yummy cheese and peppers. The girl at the counter recommended au jus to go along and it was a fantastic suggestion. I definitely want to go back and order that whole sandwich again. My Smashy was outstanding, sort of like a French dip but so much better. The peppers were just right, not overcooked and still a little touch of crisp and very flavorful. The bread was so soft, just the right amount of cheese. Yum. We got some desserts too (thanks Frank) but honestly we're all too full and satisfied to try them yet, but based on everything else, I'm sure they're delicious. My only complaint is that the menu has so many interesting and yummy sounding sandwiches, I'll probably have to go back for months to try them all!! Staff was great too... definitely going back soon!! More...
Best food ever! If you are near by stop in and enjoy a wonderful meal and great friends
Cindy Furton De Mint
Had the best salmon salad, yes at a ham place. The stir fry looked great I will be ordering that next week!
Stefanos is amazing!! Stefanos catered a company event I was at and we could not stop raving about the food. I strongly suggest if you're considering holding a gathering of some sort, you could not go along with Stefanos food... Thank you so much!
First time here and the ham sandwich was so flavorful. The staff was helpful with guiding me in the right direction. I received a free drink with Yelp check in.
This was my was mine and my boyfriends first time here. I ordered the Turkey panini and he ordered the bur-Gini panini. Both where very good!!! We are planning on going back to try more paninis! We recommend this place! More...
At Stefanos. Great honey baked spiral ham that compliments your Easter, Christmas menu. It helps you to save time. Stefanos has side dishes, sandwiches, and many other delicious food items. Service is courteous, friendly, and efficient. Try it. More...
great food, good portions
fabulous food, music and crew !
This is a bit of a bi-polar review. First, the meatloaf sandwich is without question the best I have ever had. It is simply ridiculous. It has a "bark" like crust that is what you would get from a BBQ place in the deep South and a sweet but just that right amount of tang. The bread was incredible. We came here late afternoon on a Sunday and they were sold out of the meatballs that we had heard were unreal too. The service was excellent. We also ordered a Bread pudding that was in the top 5 I have ever had. All-in-all incredible food...Here is the other part though: It is crazy spendy. Yes, you get what you pay for all that is true but I am just telling you in advance that it is super pricey. Would I go here again....Yes!! The sandwich was crazy and I still want to try the meatballs, I will apply for a line of credit. More...
First time visit turned out to be an amazing experience. Not only was the menu five stars. The food was amazing and service was superb. And the best carrot cake on the planet ;) Thank you!!! Bookmarked in my favorite list! Highly recommend this place for a quick bite or family dining. More...
Favorite dish: Meatloaf sandwichFollow memosmunchies on IGService:Excellent! The staff is super helpful and friendly! Dining experience:Great! The indoor seating is comfortable and all the good was really good. Would I come back?Definitely yes. More...
Locally owned, local favorite. Support small business. Highly rated! Great service.
best paninis sandwiches in Yorba Linda.i love ham & swiss， cubano.italian wedding soup also great.
Can I give Stefano's ten stars? Aside from the usual - good food and service - it's the little things that make a huge difference. Went in with my two year old daughter who was just having a rough day (which made my day rough no doubt). The team noticed it and were so kind and offered her a cookie to cheer her up. They really didn't need to do anything at all but yet they did. So yes good food - sandwiches, hot foods, salads - low key comfortable restaurant with fantastic team! More...
I had the ham & swiss panini. The ham was delicious. I really enjoyed the honey mustard sauce that was on the sandwich, a little sweet and a little savory. My dad had the positano panini which was also great! Very herbaceous and filling. Both paninis came on the same type of bread. Bread was awesome. Soft, but didn't fall apart as some other breads tend to do.Service was quick and friendly. Will definitely be back! More...
Always a go to place for holidays. Have great ham and sides available. Don't forget the mustard for the ham. Nice staff and always willing to help you carry out your bags. Don't forget they have lunch and to go entrees for nights you don't want to cook. More...
Our waiter was extremely nice and gave us nice recommendations. We also received our food so fast despite the mount of people that were already there. We'll definitely be hanging out here with friends! More...
Went on Friday for live music. Had the lobster sandwich. 'Twas bomb af. Had other sandwiches here before and was never disappointed.
Great place for lunch or dinner or holiday meal. Cool menu with lots of good choices.Their ham is the best!
First timer! I came here for lunch for a business meeting. I was able to meet the owner himself and he was so nice and funny! The food was great and the staff was friendly. I'll be back!! More...
Brilliant sandwiches and solid prices. The ham is great
Great service. The pastrami is good but it's not New York. They are known for ham and that is spectacular.
Good food! A little pricey but worth it!
Their lobster roll lent extravaganza is so good every year!
Love it!!! Thank you Franky
Ann Marie Stefano
Delicious brunch on the weekends and great weeknight events including Trivia, Table Top, Live Music and D&D!! Ham of course is on point and paninis are one of a kind!
For Easter we used Stephano's. What a delicious meal. The ham was delicious, and all the sides tasted like homemade. We added some Beef tamales which were also delicious. 5 stars! Thank you for making our family celebration of EASTER delicious. More...
OMG this place is our favorite place to come and enjoy their wonderful sandwiches. Currently we have been eating Lobster Rolls every Friday since lent. They are warm, tender and loaded with lobster. I can't describe who wonderful they are, you're going to have to try them yourself. You won't regret it. More...
Loved the Meatloaf Sandwich
Great food, great service, lots of choices. I will continue to eat here again and again as I have for the past 15 years.
If you have never had the pleasure of eating at Stefano's I recommend you go punish yourself....no seriously I will wait..................OK, now that is taken care of drive your miserable self immediately, order anything, doesn't matter. Just order, sit down, and enjoy...you can thank me laterReviewed By: Jeremy Duenas - Newport Beach More...
I had an event planned at my home and had decided to call Stephano's to pick up several platters of their delicious sandwiches, paninis and salads. Then I went to their website online and saw pictures of the "dressed buffet." I changed my mind -- that was what I wanted, and it turned out to be truly fabulous! They helped me every step of the way, from choosing the menu and suggesting how much I would need, to table and chair rentals to florals for the tables; they beautifully decorated a buffet table, and came back after the event to clean up. They even packaged up the leftovers and had them ready for some guests to take home and some to go in the fridge. They are knowledgeable, experienced, accommodating, and easy to work with. Thank you Alana and Stefano's, for making my event so beautiful and memorable. More...
Great lunches and dinners.
The amazing reviews on this place don't lie! This little spot is a hidden gem. High quality, great flavors, anything and everything you order is delicious. After reading many reviews for this place , I saw many that said to try the burgini with tritip substitute, oh man!!! Spot on! So good! Highly recommend!! I crave their food now lol More...
Went for a Birthday lunch with my daughter. I saw the pictures on Placentia Buzz, and the Lobster roll looked delicious !! No disappointment... it was delicious !! Other things on their menu looked good too, we will be back ! More...
A simply fabulous, speciality sandwich shop in the heart of yorba linda. With a variety of paninis, salads and homemade pastas to choose from, you truly can't go wrong. Plenty of seating either indoor or outdoor with a quaint 'sandwich shop' vibe. We highly recommend the golden ham sandwich and/meatball sandwich. Both very flavorful!!!! Overall, a great experience. We definitely plan on coming back. More...
Amazing Bella Donna salad
Roz Ange Bowman
We have never had a bad meal. The food and service is super.
Love coming here for lunch!Food is amazing, from their salads, to sandwiches, to soups and pastas. Everything is delicious.They have vegetarian options which is a huge plus for me. More...
Such a delicious sandwich place!If I want a sandwich I will come here from now on. The mall that the shop is located at is pretty much dead so a lot of parking space is available. The store is a bit small and crowded. They should toss some decor and shelving to make more room. I don't understand the purpose of them. They just take up space. Sitting area isn't so comfortable so I do suggest to go.The sandwiches are a bit huge for a regular size female. If you are going with a friend I suggest 1 sandwich and a couple sides instead. I really wanted to try their sides but couldn't since I didn't even finish half of the sandwich I ordered.Anyways, delicious and nice staff! More...
Place is really good for any type of sandwich. Only downside is that they are hard to get a hold of on the phone during lunch rush. It would be convient if they answered so i can place my order ahead of time during my lunch. Other than that, everything here is great! More...
The food is so delicious here! Great for a quick but hearty lunch. The porchetta & gnocchi is heavenly.
Moved to the area about a year ago and have come a handful of times for their paninis (uncle Carmine's , capisce , Cuban), meatloaf sandwich and hot entrees (porchetta). All delicious and fairly priced. Went in last week for a take out order and Shelley, the baker, found out it was my husband's birthday. She left him a treat in our take out bag. Very sweet of her to do that! Kind people and good food, what more can you ask for? More...
Best Panini ever. Yeah, girls at counter are a little 'mean girls', but it's tolerable. Meat stacked, amazingly flavorful, perfect blend of crisp and soft. Never would have expected such a great sandwich from this place. Thank you! More...
Currently out favorite restaurant. We love their pasta Monday deal and family dinners. They also have amazing soup.. bisque, corn chowder, chili. All so good(they rotate their soups daily) . We've enjoyed all their sandwiches; meatball, meatloaf, veggie, Burginie, and montague are our favs. They catered our Christmas dinner and got a A+ from the family! More...
Ordered a holiday feast to feed 8 people for a New Year's Eve gathering and the email confirmation stated that I would be able to pick it up by 5:00 p.m. I arrived today at 4:00 p.m. to pick up my order and the place is closed!! I had to scramble last minute, trying to find a place to do last minute catering. This is so upsetting and gave my friends and I unnecessary stress. More...
So yummy! The waitress was super nice and I liked how the manager came out to greet us and make sure the food was delicious
The panini sandwiches are out of this world. I have also used them for catering with many events. Fantastic
Have eaten at Stefanos once but we have used them for thanksgiving for many years and always delicious! Ham is great.
By far one of my favorite lunch spots! Delicious food and a good environment. My favorite is the Sorrento. Yummy! They have tables outside which is nice when the weather is good. I order to go when I want good food but I do t have time to sit! It can be crowded on a beautiful day, so make sure you aren't in a rush! More...
I have eaten lunch at Stefano's twice in the last 2 weeks. My husband went there for the first time yesterday and it was so good that he ate lunch there again today. The paninis were great. Finding a table can be tough at lunchtime. Nonetheless, lunch at Stefano's will be a regular occurrence for us. More...
Food is always delicious. I love the salmon salad. I also get the tomato bisque and ham and cheese panini when I need comfort food. The trevi panini is also delicious. Everyone likes the Stefano's salad. More...
Carol Ann Bird Miller
*******Great food and staff!!!!******
I called the owner back but she was not in yet. I left my name and never received a call back. It's ok as I know they are extremely busy during the month of December. I'll go back and give it another try here as I love supporting local business. More...
Best ham ever I don't even care for ham but I tried one tiny piece and was like this is fantastic and I love the crispy edges. Totally blows honey baked over rated ham I'm never going to have again out of the water. More...
Visit from Seattle and the family ordered prime rib for Christmas Eve. Holey moley was this gooood! The meat was amazing quality and flavor. The homemade horseradish, I was eating with a spoon! Seriously so good, the best Christmas dinner I could ask for. Our only note to those who purchase: the cook time is wrong. As our second time cooking this prime rib it takes significantly longer than the instructions indicate. More...
We had the Ham and Swiss and the Bur-gini with tri tip. They were both absolutely out of this world! The ham on the Ham and Swiss is flavorful yet not salty like ordinary hams. The avocado and dressing on the Bur-gini go very well with the tri tip which is tender and tasty. We will definitely make the drive to come back and try some of their other sandwiches. More...
This place has great atmosphere and friendly customer service not to mention excellent deli style sandwiches. I've been impressed every time I've eaten at this restaurant.
i really love this place. they have awesome paninis and desserts. however, i only gave it 4 stars because they are always out of italian soda. whenever i come here and ask for italian soda, they're out... everytime. it always leaves me disappointed. i'm surprised they don't keep more in stock. other than that, this place is great! More...
Stefano's catered my son's high school graduation party a few years back. The food selection was great, with a good variety of sandwiches and sides. The deserts were delicious, as well. They also arranged for chairs, tables, linens and decorative utensil sets.Our guests were very pleased with the entire food presentation; I would give this restaurant a very strong recommendation. More...
Jenna and Shelly took amazing care of us! They provided great customer service! Not only is the food amazing but the staff went above and beyond, Thank you Stefano's!
The sandwiches and the hams are so good!! I also recommend the wine sold there. It is the perfect sweetness. I wish there was one closer to my home or work. I would love to have their sandwiches more often. More...
Jennifer Peckham Arundale
The cheese cake is so amazing I was crying! I was one of the comics performing there and all I can think about is why didn’t I eat more!
We decided to let Stefano's provide our Thanksgiving meal this year.... I cannot say enough good things about It! The turkey was moist and tasty, the dressing wonderful and everything great as well.People were even calling on their way home to thank us for such a good meal!I totally hope they do Christmas meals as well.... Will order as soon as the information is available on line! The wait to pick it up before the holiday can be lengthy, but it is fun to chat with others in line and experience the tastes Stefano's provide to those waiting....Very good value for the meal provided! More...
After your visit to the Nixon Library, this is a good stop for lunch! It's a 5 minute drive from the library. The sandwiches are upscale and they also have soups that one would go there for the single purpose to enjoy because they are thoughtfully made with fresh ingredients.They also have a good selection of beer and wine.Seating inside or outside with good service. This is an upscale sandwich place with reasonable prices and good food. Who doesn't like a good sandwich?Bonus! Yelp check-in gets you a free drink! (I had a Fanta soda; Coke Cola's version of root beer which I like a lot!) More...
I really enjoy their paninis. My mom and I split a build your own panini. Their cups are really adorable, they look like glass soda cans. They have something called wine Wednesdays and I'm 90% sure that you need to RSVP for it (I'm not old enough to drink yet so I don't know for sure). I am pretty sure you are still able to sit outside and eat outside during it. More...
Service - Outstanding!Food - Some dishes had very ambitious flavors but it definitely worked!1. Positano - I liked this panini but didn't love it. The flavors were great but it was missing something. Great fresh ingredients and fantastic bread. Soft inside with a great crust.2. Romeo - Loved this sandwich. I thought it would be too decadent but the flavors just worked. 3. Pasta Salad - Very subtle flavors. Great side dish. More...
I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. I recently ordered a ham for Thanksgiving and it was amazing and well worth the money. This is a family owned small business and the owners are wonderful people. I will be ordering a ham from them every year! More...
The ham is great! 1:30 to pick it up not so much.
Quality food for sure! I ♥️ the breakfast, but yesterday we had lunch for the first time and it for sure did not disappoint! They also have a nice selection of quality crafts beers. We will be back for sure! More...
We go here once a week. Great food, super service and reasonable prices. Check in on Yelp and enjoy a free drink!
I've been here with my favorite people enjoying our favorite meals and trying some of the special entrees. What makes this place great is the service and occasionally the owner will be here to greet you. We have never been disappointed.
We came for lunch on a weekend and it was really crowded. We tried the Burgini and the Bostonian. Both are really good. Personally, i prefer the bostonian. Each panini is also gigantic! The Bostonian has a lot of flavor and is spicy too. It gets a little crazy here at lunchtime but I'm definitely coming back! More...
the food we had tonight was great.
Found this place to go somewhere nice and calm for me and my boyfriends anniversary and we always recommend it if someone asks us whats good in the area. I like a lot of the salads and pastas that you can take to-go for picnics and parties. I also love the salmon sandwhich More...
Been eating here for years. My favorite "sandwich" place. My family loves Stefano's. I like the simplicity of the ham and Swiss panini. My girls like the soups and pastas. My son likes everything. Not sure how you can go wrong here... More...
This is so far the best sandwich store in YL area. The panini is my best favorite. I also like their soup.
Cheryl Brandstatter Devoto
Stefano's is one of a kind! The ingredients are top quality food and the selections are AH-MAY-ZING! It's just difficult to decide which to pick! I love their gnocchi salad, Spring salad, paninis. Do NOT miss out on their hams which are the best anywhere. One of my favorite Stefano's choices is probably the unique Burgini. It is a beef patty blend of Chuck, Short Rib, & Brisket served with Roasted Garlic & Jalapeno Cream Cheese (YUM!!!), Bacon, Avocado, Tomatoes, Cheddar Cheese, & Onions. I recently saw The Romeo and will have to give that a try, as well. Tri Tip, Carmelized Onions, Provolone Cheese, & Garlic Aioli - seriously I can't wait to try it! More...
This place is delicious. The sandwiches are fresh-made with top quality ingredients, which is reflected in the taste. I have been impressed with each new sandwich. I love their paninis
Love stopping by for a Bostonian panini. Probably not low on calories but SOOO worth it.
Tried this place for the first time a couple weeks back for lunch. I placed the order over the phone with a lovely female employee and arrived about 15 minutes later. The inside decor was very charming and it was quite busy as it was in the middle of the lunch rush and I was in and out of there pretty quickly. The Porchetta PB& J sandwich was definitely interesting, yet I liked it. The combination of the flavors was quite unique and the portion size was just right. I also ordered a small Spinach side salad, and the homemade dressing simply took it to another level--it was so good!My co-worker unfortunately was not too impressed with her Burgini sandwich, but perhaps the amount of different ingredients was simply far more than she expected. Based on this first visit, I am interested in trying out some other options as their menu looks really good and the other reviews on here are quite intriguing. More...
This place is a local favorite. Seasonal favorites along with a great assortment paninis. They are also a catering business but provide to-go Family Meals at a decent prince that are very popular in the community. A great alternative to cooking at home when you want a good meal without the work of making it. They have deli items and sandwiches to go. These are great on the go and you can order ahead. Obviously their other claim to fame is their Honey Baked Hams. These are great during the holidays and really make the foundation of Family meal memories. Be on the lookout when they offer Lobster Rolls. These are to die for stuffed with fresh Lobster when in season. More...
You can really taste the quality in the food here. I got the positano panini, it was really good and filling. The avocado was at the perfect ripeness. The tropical iced tea really paired well and was quenching on a hot socal day.This is definitely a hometown neighborhood kind of shop, you can tell most the people eating here are locals, whilst the unknowing tourists go to big chain chili's across the lot.They have beer! Always a plus for me.Location is clean. Indoor/outdoor seating. Plenty of parking on the upper and lower levels of the parking structure. Do avoid Sunday mornings when church gets out.Service is great. But the prices, however, have been climbing over the years.... at what point can the cost of a sandwich really reach?Food 5*Price 3*Service 4.5*Location 4.5* More...
This place is absolutely insane! Everything is amazing from the traditional ham sandwich to there amazing dinner menu with short ribs and Brussel sprouts, Home run Stefano’s
Stefano's has the most delicious and freshest salads I've ever had! The Italian wedding soup is soooo good as well. Whatever you get here, it is absolutely amazing.
I like tuna - a lot. Real tuna, not that mushy stuff. The ahi tuna sandwich was delicious. It came with a pasta salad option. This was the other half I couldn't finish. Totally with it, super delicious and great service! More...
Incredible unique sandwiches and paninis. You will not leave hungry. Ordered. A Cuban. Ham, pickles, carnitas and cheese with mustard panini. One of the best I've had!
We had Stefano's cater a Wedding Shower for my daughter & her fiancé this weekend. Everyone loved the food! We ordered Paninis, Lobster Rolls, Stefano's salad, fruit tray, appetizer tray, assorted cheese tray. Wonderful spread, very tasty & perfect arrangement! More...
The food was amazing. Our party of 4 all tried different things and all were delicious. I can't wait to go back soon.

Best customer service and food in Yorba Linda
The best of everything!! Cute deli styleShop with fantastic food. My favorite is the orzo salad and Brie sandwich!! I mean, what's better than that!!! More...
Found a new lunch spot. Definitely some great sandwiches and paninis with style and flavor. No boring sandwiches here! If you're looking for a mouth watering panini this is your place. They also serve beer and wine!
Stefano's is THE BEST! We love their paninis and salads! The staff is awesome and very helpful. I LOVE their Ham and Swiss panini and their Spring salad with the raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing. The Caprese panini is great great as well! More...
Yesterday was my first time in for lunch and I cannot wait to go back. I’m doing low-carb lifestyle and @Stefano’s hooked me up! Special shout out to Rachel who took my order and all the fun gals at the counter. Lettuce Wrap Lobster Roll, BOMB!!! More...

Lettuce Wrap Lobster Roll, BOMB!!!Friday's Lobster Roll special and drink $17.99I'll be back next week!! More...
Wow. The best panini you can get anywhere! Their ham is awesome. We got a ham for Christmas and it came out great. When they have lobster rolls on fridays during lent - get them! You will find yourself wanting one when you can't get it. Our friends were leaving and flying home and wanted sandwiches so we sent them here. Everyone on the plane was asking were they were from...

YUM! I've only tried 1 sandwich at Stefano's and it's because it's so delicious I can't think of getting anything else. I've come here on weekdays for lunch and there's always a 15-20 minute wait, which shows how popular Stefano's is in Yorba Linda!The Bur-Gini has a beef patty blend of chuck, short rib, & brisket, served with roasted garlic & jalapeno cream cheese, bacon, avocado, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, & onions. While this may sound like a pretty simple combination of ingredients, the jalapeno cream cheese really elevates this sandwich to another level! The cheddar cheese is always melted perfectly and envelops the beef patty so well. The rest of the ingredients are fresh too. While $12+ may seem like a little much for just a sandwich, it's actually a huge portion. Two people can easily split this sandwich + salad/pasta side.I've also sampled the Pasta Spring Salad, which has romaine lettuce, cheese tortellini, grilled chicken, mandarin oranges, fresh strawberries, tomatoes, topped with almond slices, & served with raspberry vinaigrette. While all of the ingredients were fresh, I didn't think this was really worth it at $11. Love me some cheese tortellini though! Service here is pretty fast given how popular they are. Looking foward to my next visit! Will I try a new sandwich Or will I stick with the Bur-Gini hmmmm....... More...
I was taken to Stefanos by a friend, who goes there for lunch on her work hour, and raves about it. Rightfully so! Ham is their speciality!Great place, with attention to detail, and excellent food! Lots to choose from on the overhead board, filled with sandwich choices, soups, salads and more.There was ample seating for the Sunday lunch crowd, and our food arrived quickly...mine, a ham salad sandwich (yummy!) And my friend's, a toasted ham & swiss panini.Lunch was a bit more expensive that I expected at over $30.00 for both sandwiches and 2 sodas, but I rationalized that "you get what you pay for", and enjoyed my lunch.I'd go back! More...
A nice little sandwich shop with catering services. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.
Great for dining in or taking home. Fantastic soups and sandwiches.
Never going back to honey baked hams again. This place rocks!
Stefano's is always satisfying! Love to get the daily special.
Get the burgini, you'll never look back!
Vert great sandwiches and amazing staff. I usually get their most popular ham sandwich.
Extremely good food. Good deli. Small place. Popular. They serve wine. Excellent catering.
Really good panini.
Been here for 5 years, still one of the best paninis in So Cal, if you know a better one please let me know!
Love this place. My husband and I found this place when we were looking for a date night spot. We enjoy going and sitting outside in the evening for a yummy sandwich dinner. In addition, they have different specials each time we have gone and we have enjoyed trying a few different menu items and everything is good. My husband is obsessed with their Tomato Bisque soup, while I liked their Italian Wedding Soup more. I get the Bostanian sandwich and my husband gets the Trevi. You can't leave without having a dessert! We love the bread pudding, cheesecake, and lemon cake. The staff has always been friendly, clean environment and fairly priced. We recently introduced my in-laws to this gem and in the last month they have requested we have it for dinner 3 times! And we don't say no because it is simply a true gem of a restaurant. More...
WOW! We just had the salmon dinner for the first time last night!Haven't had salmon that good since I was in Alaska! That didn'tsurprise me, because everything we have had there is alwaysa 10! Thank you Stefano family. We look forward to years andyears of great meals! More...
My family loves the Bostonian sandwich. I ordered a salad and wasn't impressed too much, as I can get a huge salad from Rutabegorz for the same price. Our visit was on 07/29/18 and it was 1/2 hour before closing. They had put the tea in the back already and didn't serve enough ice in our cups so it, of course, melted and diluted our teas. :( More...
Have been enjoying Stefanos for over 10 years. If you have a special event, business event, or just want a quick fabulous meal...Stefanos is the place to go! Christmas, Easter, birthdays, Colleen makes me look so smart for ordering the whole feast here. Don't sweat cooking...give Stefanos your business. More...
Thank God for Stefano’s!!! They do it right, and without them we’d be relegated to places like Jersey Mike’s!!!! ��
Great owner, phenomenal food, and always the best customer service! Stefano’s is part of what makes Yorba Linda so great!
I absolutely love Stephano's. They always exceed my expectations. And Hailey loves the tomato basil soup!
Nothing but the best food and service for as many years as they've been open. Well Done!
Never, EVER been disappointed by these fine people or their products! Introduced to me years ago by Robyn Price who is another quality professional we trust and consider part of the family:-)
Good food! Highly recommend coming in to enjoy a meal. I tried to order on the phone, didn't work cuz I kept getting put on hold. We went in and the service was good; food was excellent. Katie was nice and the owner even came by and brought us some cannoli and other desserts on the house. Very nice touch! More...
My favorite Italian Deli!!! I order hams for every holiday. Their Ham and Swiss Panini is amazing! We also love their ceases salad, Italian wedding soup and acini pasta! My husband is obsessed with Lobster Rolls and my kids eat their ham by the slice. More...
Large portion size for a great price! Not to mention soooo delicious!
That was the easiest 5 star that I have ever handed out!! Food was so good!!!!
Love there Thursday Dinners great price and great food. There Chicken Piccata is the best. Also if you want a good burger try there burgini. So good. And if you are looking for a good place to get your holiday ham or Prime Rib Stefano's is to place to go. More...
Love the Montegue and their Cuban Panini. Looking forward to Friday’s prime rib!
Best panini in town! The golden ham panini is a must try. They also have great salads and pasta salads. Italian wedding meatball soup is highly recommended too. Great staff!
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and catering. Have had it all and am never disappointed. Food and service is always on point and fresh. Highly recommend Stefano’s.
The best Tomato bisque! I always look forward every Saturday for my lab day in Caduceus so I can have a snack of the best soup so far that I have tried!
Can not say enough about this restaurant. We picked them to cater my daughters baby shower and it turned out perfect!!! From the food to the Decorations and the service!! They were Amazing!!! Made A very memorable day for us !! Thank you Stefano's ! More...
There is a reason this place has almost 5 stars. Great service and great food.
The best breakfast burrito I have ever eaten!! Nice, comfortable, down to earth place where you can get a great meal.
What an awesome place to eat! No wonder they have 4 1/2 stars the food is delicious! Will be back soon!
We just recently tried this location and it was amazing. My husband had the ham and Swiss while I tried the Italian wedding soup and the pasta. It was very good and everything was freshly made. Even my kids are every bite of their panini. We definitely plan to come back and try more different foods. Thank you for the great customer service ! More...
The bread was great!! The overall flavor was great. I had the one with figs in it. Will be back!! I also like their iced tea!
Maria was very lovely at the front counter. It was my first time there and she was patient with me. I had the Cubano it was delicious! I will definitely be coming back. Great restaurant. More...
HAM!!!! Unbelievable, amazing, wonderful HAM! So, basically, I love the ham, it's worth every penny. We ordered 18lbs so we'd have some leftover... none went to waste simply because it's so amazing. The wife and I have gone back since for lunch and the sandwiches are incredible, the pasta salads are great and the staff is fantastic. You simply can't go wrong here. More...
Ella K Yakan
Loved their rainbow cake!! Made of layers of colorful crepes ��
Stefano’s has THE best Paninis!! You have to try the Juliet
I absolutely loved this restaurant! Their rainbow crepe cake is truly amazing!!!
Alison Nicole Hansen
The food is AMAZING!!! If you go you have to get the rainbow cake!!! �
OG spot in Yorba Linda been going here for years. Sandwiches are always on point and have great sides.
Sandwiches are fresh, delicious , and hearty. Location is very clean and quiet and great place to grab a drink after a long morning
Visiting this place should be mandatory.I came here expecting excellent sandwiches but I was surprised that the place offered more. The paninis are amazing but the desserts are out of this world. More...
Used to go there everyday for their sandwich! Best ingredients and customer service. Great, easy food for all. Nice little seating area outside as well
Always good tasting, A lot of food for your money all homemade, worth the few minutes of extra weight love it each time we go there glad I found it a little gym in the corner
OMG the best sandwiches I've ever had. Everything about it was perfect. Got three different paninis to share between us...Cubano, Bostonian, and Uncle Carmine's Big Italy. Plus the cheese tortellini and orzo pasta salads on the sides. We enjoyed every last bite....Also the sandwiches are huge and filling. Okay, stop reading the reviews and eat here already, you won't be disappointed!! More...
Loveee this hidden gem in Yorba Linda! I have moved all over and still crave this place! Open more locations! Stefano's has something for everyone from stopping by for lunch to to-go's to office parties to catering a family reunion, this place has got you covered! My go to is their lunch combo with their paninis and pasta salads! The tortellini is phenomenal and their cubano panini is to die for! More...
We have never brought in a holiday meal before but I'm so glad we tried it. Best ham ever! And so easy with all the side dishes made to go along with it. The whole family agreed it was delicious! More...
The paninis here are true amazing. The Ham and Swiss tastes so good. One panini is enough for two people. They also offer salads too. The Glazed Ham is superb. It is kinda sweet and tastes like candy. This is a great place in Yorba Linda. It is about a mile from The Richard Nixon Library. I apologize for not taking any pictures. More...
I have had this place bookmarked for 6 years! 6 YEARS! What the hell was I thinking? This place makes a legitimately good sandwich. My husband had a cubano sandwich and loved it. I had a cold ham and turkey and it tasted so fresh and delicious. Their portions are huge, and so worth the money.Their side salads are also excellent. We tried the cucumber and tomato salad and the orzo and feta salad. So good! The service was also very on point. You can tell that they really care. More...
Whether I go to Stefanos for my Christmas turkey dinner or my weekday spinach salad it's always fresh and tasty. It's very special that the entire family is involved with the menu and service. Highly recommend.
I've lived in Yorba Linda for almost 3 years and I can't believe I just discovered Stephanos!!! What can I say... The food is great. Perfect spot for lunch. I wish we had more places like this in YL... More...
Been here twenty times for lunch and had their holiday hams at least a dozen times, each time it's been a great experience.
Great Panini sandwhiches, salads and best tomato soup ever!
Damn good food and customer service! Everything we tried was excellent and definitely coming back.
The ham! The lobster rolls! The trevi! The Romeo! Look people, if you haven't eaten at Stefano's, go move to an uninhabited island far away from civilization because you must not like great food.
FoodAll paninis have nice crunchiness texture with pretty grill stripes.Golden Baked Ham and Swiss: the perennial favorite here is quite creamy and on the sweet side from Swiss and honey mustard. This complements the mild sweetness from the ham really well. Lettuce and tomato garnishes. Recommended for first timers. 4.75/5.Cubano Stefano : ham here is fortified by slow cooked carnitas. Swiss and mayo and to the luscious creaminess that is counter-balanced with sharp sourness from mustard and pickle. Must try. 4.75/5.Rue Bini: Italian-German-Asian? Just call it New Yorker then. The protein here is pastrami and Swiss which are countered by sourness and texture from sauerkraut. Thousand island dressing, somehow a favorite among Asians, adds medium sweetness and creaminess. Onion gives it a nice crunch and flavor. 4.5/5.Bostonian: a double protein here with roast beef and turkey, both are home made, although I prefer it without turkey. The mild salty flavor profile comes from a strong overtone from garlic-jalapeno cream cheese and pepperoncini, both giving a nice spicy kick. Pepper Jack and avocado add to the creaminess. Tomato and pepperoncini give a mild sourness undertone supported from the additional crunch and flavor from onion. 4.25/5.Positano:if you like a Mediterranean touch, this is yours. Turkey and provolone are the protein. Avocado gives a foundation for the creaminess that is fortified by the Mediterranean touch of sun dried tomato,olive, and onion. 4.25/5Palermo: can't get any more Sicilian than this, well, except for their "Uncle Carmine's" (which I haven't tried yet). Delicious chunky home-made meatball sauced with medium sour home-made marinara, then topped with melted Mozarella and Parmesan. A strong garlic undertone. 4/5.ServiceSelf-serving style for brunch and lunch. Turned into a full service restaurant for diner. Could be confusing for the non regulars. Not sure if this is a good or a bad idea. Alcohol service. 3.75/5.AmbienceIt felt more like a deli than a restaurant. A plus was a nice patio for a lazy brunch. 4.25/5.OverallI still haven't tried diner because it just don't feel like a right place. However, they have killer paninis for lunch and brunch. 4.5/5. More...
This is a great casual spot for lunch. Order at the counter. Great salad and sandwich combos. Also you can get some tasty sides and pasta salads to go. Has nice desserts too.
Absolutely loveeeeed the lobster roll I had today! It was filled with lobster and great tasting.
Came at an off hour after a quick visit to a hospital in the area. It was still busy after lunch time. After having the sandwich I can see why. After looking at the menu I wondered if a panini could be worth more than $10. I was pleasantly surprised. Ordered the Trevi and Burgini. The Trevi reminded me of a Chicken Parmesan sandwich but the meat actually tasted like chicken and not some freeze tried crap you get sometimes. The Burgini was good. The meat had a slight kick with sweetness and reminded me of Bulgogi that you get at a Korean BBQ. Overall the food was delicious. Oh if you check in you get a free fountain drink. Nice. More...
My cousin picked up a prime rib from here for our Christmas Eve dinner this past year. It was the best prime rib I have ever had. And all 5 of us at dinner said the same thing. I cannot wait until we have an occasion to have prime rib again. So delicious! More...
Mr. Estéfano made Valentine’s Day, extra special for a group of friends and I, Amazing customer service and food... Thank you � Mr Estéfano for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us that made our experience at your restaurant extra especial.
This is my second time having their Warm Gnocchi salad, it just got even more delicious. The combination of the house made Parmesan cheese, grill chickens and the set aside pesto dressing was amazing. My husband got his favorite meat loaf sandwich. l took a bite and it was the best meat loaf ever. Service is excellent too. Definitely a go to place. More...
Heaven on earth with the kindest people and the best food. I love coming here. Everything is so fresh and delicious.
Our New Year's resolution was to try new local places and this was our first spot. It was everything we had heard and hoped for. The food was amazing. We split a bowl of corn chowder, which was very tasty. My husband had the Smashy sandwich and it was delicious, the meat melted in your mouth. I had the Uncle Carmine Big Italy panini and I can't even describe how good it was, couldn't finish the whole thing. We tried the Limoncello cake and it was just the right amount of sweet and tart. To top off our new experience, our server Paige was super nice and helpful. She made our experience even better. We will definitely be visiting this place from now on, there is so many more things we want to taste More...
Had the baked ham with cheese.......Only one word to describe it. "YUMMMY".......The place was quite crowded even at 1pm. Wonder how long the wait would be if we were to be here at 12pm. Took about 10 minutes to have the food brought to us which is not that bad as everything was made fresh. So worth the short wait. More...
I just want to say Thank You to this establishment for providing us with the BEST ham we have ever had. For years I used Honeybaked Hams but started getting my 16# hams uncut (not by choice) or getting two smaller hams in my reserved 16# order (so I got twice as many bones as I counted on and less ham). Stefano's ham was nicely sliced, sooo delicious and minimal waste. I will be getting mine here from now on.P.S. Love their panini sandwiches also! Great staff! More...
I crave their sandwiches. I hope to open a business just like Stefanos one day! I love the ham and Swiss and meat loaf well as the Italian wedding soup.

Ordered Family Feast for Christmas dinner. Went to pick up and the line was long, but they had a bar set up and were serving wine and beer, ham samples AND sandwiches! It made waiting very delightful! Third time ordering through them, great every time! More...
My favorite place of all time. For lunches I pick up their trevi - an awesome panini. For special occasions and holidays, their hams - golden baked with pure love - can't be beat.
BUR-GINI IS THE BOMB DIGGITY. Love the sandwiches, flavors, and atmosphere. Can't go wrong with this place.
This place is so fantastic! The atmosphere is very chill, the food is great and the customer service is impeccable! I highly recommend the Positano or the Paleo salad.
This place has some ridiculous sandwiches! The meatloaf sandwich.....uuugh. And I could eat their breakfast sandwich for breakfast EVERYDAY! Not to mention the cold brew.
"Now, that's a good sam'wich!" (Yelp* draft started back in April.) DS: You hungry?...Me: I can eat. (Always.) There's an Indian buffet just down the street?DS: *silenceMe: Yes, no, maybe?...DS: Uhm... I don't like Indian.Me: Have you tried Indian?...DS: No.Me: Wha'?! Huh?... 'Then how do you know? (SMH)DS' idea of a food adventure is eating a cold pizza the day after. So, a sandwich was a safe bet and here we are!I wasn't sure what to order so I referenced yelp* for ideas and read on occasion Stefano's offered a lobster roll... Well, that sounded intriguing but again, not a regular menu item. I browsed the menu board, then noticed a sign just off to the side, "Fri-yay! Lobster Roll - $17.95" The yelp* gods had given me a sign! Fri-yay! - yelp.com/biz_photos/stef…Easter was a week away and Stefano's was offering the lobster roll for no-meat Fridays. (Served on Fridays only.)The lobster roll was good; very good with nice chunks.Photo - yelp.com/biz_photos/stef…However, I did have a question that I did not think about until I started drafting my review. How much actual lobster is used and how much would fall under the category of "other?" (i.e. - Seafood blend; artificial crab) I ask this because of the $18 price tag, includes chips OR drink. For the $$, you'd think it would include both chips & a soda. Either way, the sandwich was very decadent... 'But I still wonder.DS ordered the ham & swiss panini ($9.75)Photo - yelp.com/biz_photos/stef…A friend of mine, NB, is a huge lobster roll kind've gal. I asked her if she ever had Stefano's. NB said likes the sandwich here whenever she gets a craving, "It'll do when I need a quick fix," but NB said that her main go-to place for a lobster roll is @ the Bluewater Grill, Newport Beach. (Noted.)We both enjoyed the sandwiches, the customer service was exceptional. A big mahalo to Kristen aka "Kiki," and Frankie for their input and aloha. BTW - You will not find a $6, foot long sandwich or dollar value, menu here. In other words, expect to pay about $10 for a sammy. - Big Aloha!Food: 4+Ambiance: 3Service: 5Value: 4 More...
This place has some dang good sandwiches. The place is always packed with people eating in and also ordering togo. I come with my mom every so often since we live so close by! Every time I come I get something different and I've never been disappointed. I think I wasn't the biggest fan of their soups, BUT their tomato cream soup was really good. My mom loves the pastrami sandwich here and I like the hot Italian beef and the Bostonian panini! Going to try another one next time. Service is kind of slow and not that great, but nothing that would deter me away from coming for my sandwiches!! Well, sometimes service is good and sometimes it isn't. I guess it depends on how busy they are haha, but that's with most places! More...
First timer here! Was craving a good sandwich. Usually am disappointed with Jersey Mike's or any other basic sandwich place. Found this gem on yelp and wow am I so happy I did! I told the lady at the counter It was my first time and she kindly offered suggestions and waited patiently for me to look over the menu. I decided on the uncle Carmine's panini. Probably the best panini I've ever had! I wish I tried some of the pasta salad, looked so fresh! Will be back again! More...
Thank you Mr Stefano for saving my dinner! I arrived after closing hours, not knowing that they had closed at 5pm. Mr Stefano was sitting outside and I asked if they were still open. They weren't! They had closed 3 hours earlier! Yikes! He gladly opened his store, let me in so I can get my ham. Oh my goodness! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! More...
For the most part, this place has excellent sandwiches. Their ingredients are fresh and paninis are made well. I would give 4 stars instead of 5 because on one occasion, they ran out of the pork to make the Cubano sandwiches so they'd just doubled up on the ham-which was a bit disappointing. But overall spot is nice and we will definitely return. More...
Came in on a Sunday and it was pretty empty, yet I wasn't greeted or instructed where to order from there several POS systems..on two sides. Do I take a seat? Idk. After standing at the counter for a few minutes, my order was taken - was intrigued by the panini bread and a burger, so I went with h the Bur-Gini. BEST BURGER I have had in a very long time. Had a spread that melted in your mouth. Coming back for more..lacking just a bit in the service department is all...maybe just a Sunday vibe. More...
Most delicious ham, not too salty, great moistness, just so good, love their ham bones for soup too.
Great food served by people who care.Everything from sandwiches to full dinners.
The best ham for Easter and Thanksgiving I have found - and I love that it's ready made, pre-cut. Delicious. Not inexpensive, I often pay $70 for a ham for 12, but worth the occasional splurge.The eat in dining option is also fairly good, I've enjoyed that with friends several times , and worth coming back for. More...
Best sandwiches and soup! Cheesecake absolutely the best you'll ever have!!! Catering is done so beautifully...perfect for any occasion and/or holiday.
Great assortment of sandwiches and salads. Everything is always delicious. Tried the Cubano Stephano sandwich today for the first time and it was great. Will definitely have that again in the future. My wife had the Pasta Spring Salad and is a favorite. The Cobb salad is also very good. Everyone who works here is always very friendly and anxious to be helpful. More...
Big, savory sandwiches and tasty lite salads filled our tummies this afternoon. Stefanos could easily become my favorite place to bring out of town guests and locals alike. This was a hidden gem for me, because I would have thought you come here to order Honey hams for big meals and other sides for catering purposes. I didn't realize all they had to offer until finding them on yelp! The desserts here looked so delicious, but we had to pass, as our bill was already getting out of control for our to-go lunch budget. Again, I would love to come here again for coffee and cake and maybe another sandwich and salad. I just can't bring myself to get it all in one sitting. If the sandwiches were priced just $2 less and desserts slightly less, it would fit my budget. Nonetheless, they seem to not be hurting with their high prices and it won't deter me from returning or recommending them. I just can't give them a full 5 stars because I'm pretty limited in what I can purchase in one sitting without breaking my lunch budget. That's just a personal thang.Anyways, They also have nice jams and spreads for sale which would make a nice hostess gift or housewarming gift. I am just so pleased to find this local establishment! More...
I saw a few pictures of the burgini ordered with tri-tip instead of the burger patty so I decided to try it as well. It was so good! I honestly had no expectations because I just impulsively ordered this based off a picture and I've never been more surprised. I just want to point out that I've been to Stefano's many times in the past, but this was many years ago when I was in high school. Now I'm a college grad and I've noticed that the place hasn't changed much. It's still a very cute place to grab lunch at with friends or with a date.Service was fine. There was nothing special about it. I saw workers clean up quickly as soon as people left a table and I saw servers quickly give people their food, but then they would quickly leave without asking if there was anything else people needed. As a result, a lot of people (including me) had to get up and go to the cashiers to ask for things like straws, napkins, etc. If you're big on service then a panini place probably isn't the place you'll find that, especially at Stefano's lol More...
Great food, excellent service! Cubano panini, Paleo salad, their soups, Friday night prime rib, and delicious desserts! Everything I've had has been delicious at Stefano's. And hubby likes their Trivia Night and beer selection on tap! More...
The food here is amazing! I love the creative paninis! My fav was the porchetta :)
Great food, sweet family who owns the place and amazing service
I found Stephano's while looking for Honey Baked Ham on line. I decided to go have lunch there today and check them out, as I want to order my Thanksgiving dinner this year and that is one of the great meals they offer for take-out. I had a tasty ham Panini (they do their own hams) and a lovely chat with a female staffer who explained all about the Holiday Meal take out program. I will be back . There are quite a few things I would still like to try. More...
We stopped by this evening for the Top Sirloin special that Frank and Chef Frankie developed. It was a perfect steak and sides. The pear was outstanding. Excellent suggestion on the wine to accompany the meal. Excellent evening to dine outside. Very enjoyable experience. Keep up the great work. More...
First time this Stefano's and I was NOT. disappointed. The paninis and sandwiches were delicious. The store front is hidden and unassuming. But inside, restaurant is clean open and airy. The ham and Swiss panini is a little sweet for my taste. But the hot Italian beef was to die for. Will definitely be back again More...
I have been to this spot for 5 years and I always get the Golden Baked Ham and Swiss panini. My wife usually get the Spring Salads. Definitely a must try if you're in the area. This spot is quite famous on TripAdvisor as well. More...
it's not cheap, but it's worth it. We get our Easter ham and Thanksgiving ham here every year, and it's more lean and flavorful than any other him our family has had.
Used to go here when it was honey baked hams for sandwiches. Came back recently and it's still just as good.
We love their take home meals. Their chicken piccata with orzo pasta is our very favorite. The meals are on the pricey side, but a nice option if you don't want to cook at the end of the day.
Delicious panini sandwiches and excellent service for our late night family dinner. Accommodating staff.
Some of the best sandwiches in town. The porchetta PB&J and a bag of their spicy pickle chips is a pregnant girls dream.
On our way home and found Stefano's I had the Cubans and the boys the meatball. Both sandwiches were excellent. To be honest it's a lot of sandwich so next time I'll probably share one , if you have a bit appetite this place is for you. Service was great but as it's 3.00 pm there is no one here. By the quality of the food I bet this place gets busy. Next time I'm going to try breakfast More...
This is a great place to have a sandwich or a salad. I've been a loyal customer for many years and I must say that the service is A plus. Keep up the good work Stefanos!
The Good - - great food. came here as a group and among us all we got a mix of paninis, sandwhiches, soups, and salad. no one had anything disappointing to say. - the service. the workers there were super nice and friendly. - plenty of parking, great for lunch and with a group. The Bad - - nothing The Ugly - - nothing More...
Stefano's Baked Hams has been on my radar ever since Yelp OC had a Yelp event there last year. I didn't attend but I saw all the different sandwiches they had. Not only do they have ham but they make short rib, meatball, pastrami, chicken, and turkey sandwiches. There's a sandwich to satisfy every craving I think. They even have salads, pasta salads, and gnocchi. I was invited by Kelley U. for the monthly trivia and tap takeover last night. It was really fun! Beers on tap are $5 each and trivia winners get cool prizes. Frankie ran the trivia throughout the night and we ate to our heart's content. I ordered the Montague Panini with short rib and a small portion of the warm gnocchi salad. The food was really good and totally hit the spot. I also had a pint of the pineapple gose beer. My friends tried different sandwiches like the Trevi (chicken, marinara, and mozzarella) or the Cubano (ham, pickles, cheese, mustard). We also ordered the crepe cake for dessert. They had a rainbow one and a regular one in the case. We tried both. It was delicious. They also have a class coming up on how to make a crepe cake at home! Trivia goes from 6 pm - 8 pm and the top 3 teams get prizes. We had a blast but didn't place this time around. I'd be back again for another trivia night in the near future. They also do a sit-down prime rib dinner on Friday nights. With the holidays coming up, they are already taking orders for ham too. Check out Stefano's for great hot or cold sandwiches, salads, and pastries. Thanks to Stefano's for hosting such a fun evening. Thanks to Kelley for inviting me this time around. More...
Went here tonight for the first time. Lovely people, friendly, great service, and the food is beyond flavorful. We had the chili, tomato bisque soup, the hot Italian beef sandwich, and burger-ini Panini. The bisque was so creamy and yet had chunks of some veggies. Going back for sure. More...
This is one of my go to places with my coworkers for lunch since we work around the area. This would have been a 5-star rating if it weren't for some new, inconsistent workers. Slow on ordering when I call, extra charges, and sometimes poor attitudes. Sigh, I miss Britney! But, food is always top notch- especially the new paninis and salads. More...
What a delicious panini!!!! Loved this place! Good and friendly service, nice and simple
We stopped by Stefano's for a late Saturday lunch. It wasn't at all crowded and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It's one of those places where you place your order at a counter, pay and they give you a number to put in a holder on your table. We picked up our two craft beers after sampling a couple. We both decided to try the Peanut Dunkle Beer and it was very good. My wife chose the Ham & Swiss Panini while I went with the special of the day, Uncle Carmine's Panini de Italy. Both came with a bag of chips and a soft drink. The paninis' were huge and neither of us could finish them (took the other half home for dinner). Both were very fresh and tasty. After getting the boxes for our take home sandwiches, one of the staff brought out a paper bag to make carrying them easier and offered us a takeout soft drink, since we had beers instead of the soft drinks. Nice touch. Stefano's is situated in a large shopping area and the furnishings appear to be fairly new. We enjoyed our lunch. More...
This place is pretty cool. I like this place but my only problem is the price. They sell practically all their foods for around 25 dollars a pop. Their hams are pretty good, (as the name) More...
Ok. I have no idea how I missed this place.The only reason I know about this secret place is they followed me on Instagram.Here is the scoop.They have the best pancakes. Period.Better than "stacks" - either of them. Better than that original pancake place.Not just kinda better - but OMG - these pancakes with real cream,.. and a whole seared/Caramelized pear is the best pancakes - best.We also orders the breakfast burrito. I had all three meat choices. Omg-- the honey ham in that thing was the Bee's Knees.Really. Plus we ate here for lunch yesterday.The best lunch - best tomato bisque best tiramisu best Panini ever. Blueberry BEER!!! Omg omg omg."Orgasmic" Really. Better than ANY PLACE HERE -PLUS they have outdoor games and a grass area TOO!! I did not want to share cuz if people are here they would NOT go other places.Awesome!! More...
Yummy food and great service!! We tend to come here for dinner after a long day to enjoy good food and the friendly staff. Highly recommend it!
Wow this place is amazing! For something so simple (sandwiches and paninis), they nailed it. So fresh and high quality. My friends and I ordered a couple of cold side pastas and the tomato bisque soup. We got size small on pastas and they still give great portions. I got the Cubano panini $11.25 which has the golden ham and carnitas. It was so good! The best panini I've ever had. I recommend it and the soup. We also ordered the rainbow crepe, cheesecake, and tiramisu. $$10 for rainbow crepe- not worth it. Wasn't that good. It was really hard to cut. $6.99 for the cheesecake and it was bomb! I normally am not a big fan of cheesecake but this one is certainly a must. The tiramisu was also $6.99 and it was alright. Nothing spectacular. My new lunch spot!!! More...
Delicious! I have no problem giving a five star review for Stefani! The girls and I ordered several items: ham and Swiss, Cubano, and Trevi with pesto. All five stars! They were equally delicious, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the cubano. They really pack in the meat so you get a hearty bite each time. Nice pickle slices to balance the flavor of the pork and mustard. Really delicious and better than Portos. The ham and Swiss was also very popular. I found it a little too sweet with the honey baked ham and honey mustard. The veggies did kind of balance it out, but it was still too sweet. Still, it was a signature dish so I am glad I tried it. The Trevi was fantastic with the pesto. We opt out of the marinara. Pesto went perfectly with the mozzarella and chicken. It was warm and toasty with cheese oozing out on the side. Definitely a napkin sandwich. Along with our sandwiches we ordered a tomato bisque soup and two small pasta salad as a side. The soup was a hit with the sandwich. Creamy, yet tart. It was a pleasure dipping our sandwiches into the soup. I also enjoyed the cheese tortellini pasta salad with Caesar dressing, but it was too heavy. I actually preferred the olive oil, pesto and sun dried tomato pasta salad more. It was lighter and the tomatoes were delicious. Dessert: cheesecake, tiramisu, and the rainbow crepe cake. Omg! The cheesecake was delicious. Nice and creamy with a hint of tartness from the cream cheese that is mellowed out by the thin layer of vanilla bean sauce on top. It was creamy and not too sweet. Loved it. The tiramisu was ok. Typical tiramisu flavor, but I got a taste of something a lil artificial for me. Couldn't tell what it was. The rainbow cake was dry and bland. Will not spend $9.99 for the crepe again. It was difficult to eat cause it wouldn't cut down easily with a fork and not enough cream. The cheesecake was best of the three. Overall, a five star sandwich that got busy really fast! More...
SUCH A GREAT PLACE!!! I went with some friends and all together we ordered the Golden Baked Ham & Swiss Panini, Trevi Panini, Cubano Panini, Tomato Bisque Soup, 2 Pasta Salads, Tiramisu, Rainbow Crepe Cake, and Cheesecake. Out of all the food we were served, my top ones had to be the Cubano, Tomato Bisque, and the Tortellini Pasta Salad. They were AMAZING!!! Such great flavors in those dishes. I would definitely recommend those to first timers. That will be my go-to order when I come back. The Ham & Swiss Panini was pretty good. It had a nice sweetness, which I liked. I just wish there was a bit more to it. The Trevi Panini was good as well. There was a lot more sauce in it than cheese and chicken, which I wasn't too big of a fan of. Still a pretty good sandwich though.I was really disappointed with the Rainbow Crepe Cake that I got. It cost me $10.27 (which is super pricey), but it was definitely not worth it. I wish the Crepe was a lot softer, and the frosting tasted very weird to me. It tasted very artificial, like the frosting you find in bags at the super market. I enjoyed the Cheesecake very much though. It was so light and just the right amount of sweetness. I'd get that as well if they have it when I go there again.We went around 10:45, so it wasn't busy at all. Later on in our meal, more and more people started rushing in. So if you want to beat the crowd, the earlier the better! More...
Came here because we were tired of everywhere else. First off it seems like an East coast place which is a good sign. We avoided it earlier because we thought it was all ham. Well I'm pleased to say the short rib with risotto was fantastic. Daughter had the burgini which was excellent. The dessert really had us going though the limoncello cake and the tiramisu was really good. Service was good. Lots of people doing takeout. Owner seems like a smooth guy (my daughter's opinion). I'll be back More...
The wait here can be crazy long at lunch time so make sure to go in off-peak hours! They have really good beer and wine selection if you like local, craft, bottled beers.I love their Positano Panini Sandwich- Oven Roasted Turkey, Avocado, Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto, Provolone Cheese, Black Olives, & Red OnionI highly recommend ordering to-go. The restaurant is small, but their food is delicious. More...
Always fresh & very delicious- usually get takeout and have never been disappointed! It is always hard to chose, as everything is appetizing!
Dude. This place is bomb. I'm drooling just thinking about our lunch yesterday. I had the ham and Swiss panini and my husband had the meatloaf sandwich. Now we want to try everything else on the menu!! More...

Excellent tomato soup and bread pudding. Staff and interior is great! Totally plan on going back
The food is Delicious! You have to call atleast 24 hours in advance for delivery but it's worth it! Great salads, soups, sandwiches and more! Highly recommend!
Lunch specials including a "position panini" and cucumber salad on a warming afternoon...
Got the Montague, which is their short-rib sandwich with Havarti cheese and this really awesome but not too strong garlic sauce. The sandwich was so good! I really love the bread they use here too. Makes the texture of the panini really crunchy but soft at the same time. Great service! Katie took my order and she was super nice. Don't live in the area but will definitely come again soon if I'm ever around! More...
Everything here is great. The pasta salads are all delicious, as well as the paninis. Great for meat eaters and vegetarians alike.
Never disappointed here the food is good here. Just be prepared to wait in line, limited indoor seating space. If the police and firemen eat here, it's good.
In line to pick-up order- being served wine and food while waiting. Stefano's does everything with class! Thank's Frank and staff! Merry Christmas!
Omg the honey bake ham is sooooo good
Amazing good ham!!!
Excellent service with exceptional food selection
Food is always great, particularly the fresh pasta. They've expanded the menu so there are new choices. Great Friday night place to have a relaxed dinner.
Good options. Great bread. Fountain drinks. Outdoor seating. Counter service

Delicious! Great place, friendly service and the panini's are huge!
The best deli in the area. This place makes great salads and sandwiches. Their tropical tea is also amazing.
Once a week for work I am in the Yorba Linda area and since trying this place I rarely will go anywhere else for lunch. I've been trying to switch up my order each time I come and I am never disappointed in my selection. Not only is the food amazing but the staff is always so polite and attentive More...
This place never fails! Their tomato bisque soup is unlike any other, chunky and full of flavor. The turkey panini is one of the best sandwiches, always grilled perfectly. I've been coming here for over ten years and still can't get enough :) The homemade cheesecakes always adds the perfect end to any meal. More...
Amazing service! Definitely will will be coming back. Get the Pesto Panini if you're vegetarian.
Love the panini's at this place and the choice of wines. Family owned local restaurant. Like the feel and the vibe. Highly recommend
My family and I love Stefano's. They not only have the best food around they have amazing service. All his employees are so sweet. Frank is a great guy. He always makes time to come by our table to thank us for coming in. We love hearing about his family history. My husband is very picky and Stefano's is his favorite. My favorite meal...well that is hard. I would have to say the spinach salad with chicken. So yummy and of course the ham is the BEST! The turkey is amazing also...I love everything. More...
We were headed back to Las Vegas from Orange County. We needed lunch and picked Yorba Linda. This spot filled the need! This was a home run. What a eclectic array of sandwiches. The panini assortment is one in which you wish you could have some of each. My son tried the Cubano and I had a turkey. So many yummy ingredients. Smoked Gouda, artichoke hearts and roasted tomatoes. The bread they use is just the right amount of crisp. They panini are a big size and filled to the max. We decided this will be our stop to and from the OC in future. Check this one out! More...
Great customer service and food. I figured since I was days away from my Italy trip I would try to like Italian food at home first. I had the Italian sandwich and so delicious and fresh I enjoyed it very much and great little place that sells some of their products. Parking and traffic kinda has its issues but worth if in the area. More...
Amazing sandwiches and ambiance! My favorites are The Romeo, Golden Baked Ham & Swiss AND Salmon Sandwich. Their Lobster sandwich is great too!
Omg the Lobster RoLL is So Good & Humongous I could only eat half!!! So hubs has 1 1/2 to finish LiteRaLLy one of the Best Lobster RoLL I've Tasted & gLad I was able to grab it on the Last Day that it'll be Serve1st visit here & i will definitely be back especially would love to try their crepe cake. Didn't know they occasionally sell this dessert here.Btw Tiffany was so kind. I tried reserving 2 Lobster Roll for dinner this afternoon. But she said, that wasn't allowed anymore. Even though I offered to pay in advance for it. She took my number and said if the quantity was getting low. She'll give me a call. And so she did as she promised around 7 p.m.Because of her great customer service. I found a local #YorbaLindaEats where I can get some yummy lobster roll plus many more food options!Thank You so much Tiffany More...

Great food and healthy options as well. A true upscale deli. Best of all not only wonderful food but truly wonderful people.
Delicious food and friendly staff with a knowledge of the food and wine they are serving. Best tomato bisque ever! Can't wait to go back to this jewel of a place!
This is the best family restaurant in YL.They work hard to maintain a very consistent fresh and delicious menu. I love good food, and cook a lot at home. I know I'm always going to have a great meal here for lunch or dinner. We've ordered antipasti platters and cold deli salads to feed a crowd too. Always delicious and so fresh. More...
