What You'll Get
Despite prevailing sandwich lore, the Italian sub does not take its name from the submarine but from the subterranean caves where stalactite bread buns are harvested. Feast on savory cave drippings with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of casual Italian eats at Vendetti's Spanky House.
Since 1968, Vendetti's has dished out Italian subs, salads, pizza, and pasta to a loyal clientele. The eponymous "Spanky" (a homemade sub roll stuffed with mozzarella, pepperoni, and signature red sauce for $5.75), is served fresh daily with a cup of oil and vinegar that it cannot resist dunking its dense, bready head in. Other favorites include meatball, grilled-chicken, and veggie subs and the turkey antipasto brimming with lettuce, turkey, swiss cheese, tomatoes, black olives, and pepper rings ($6.95). Take home a pizza ($6.49–$7.99) or family pasta dinner (serves five to eight people for $24.95) laden with homemade meat sauce and parmesan, plus salad and bread, to feed your family/friends/life-size cardboard cutouts of the 1974 Cincinnati Bengals. Enjoy a low-key meal in Vendetti's dining room, or carry out and dine at home, in the park, or on the roof of your old high school.
- The spanky ! the cornerstone of Vandetti's [sic] menu ! I have been eating spanky's since the mid 70's – Bill H., Urbanspoon
- we had to find out what this "Spanky" was. It turned out to be a wonderful, beautiful sandwich. Mozzarella. Marinara. Pepperoni. Love. All wrapped up in butcher paper and given to you with a smile. – Shannon B., Yelp
