I just had Panera Bread's new Italian sandwich. I must say it is horrible! I'm very disappointed, as this sandwich is usually my reason for visiting Panera Bread. The Panera in my area is approximately 15 minutes from my house, so whenever I go there, I spend extra time, miles, and gas. This is the first time I feel like this was a wasted trip. I hope I am not the only one that does not like this new flavor. Maybe if Panera gets enough...

Ordered the Italian half. Got an Italian that was not only different it was tiny. It was 1/3 of a Subway half. All of 2 inches at best. 5 bites. It was the size of a white castle burger. Give me a break. Right at 7 bucks. Very expensive for plain old bread and salami. The lady was nice,, apologetic about the disappointment. Said it was corporate that made the changes. If this is their idea of delivering a good product then they can keep it. It...

Anonymous I remember the first time I went to a Panera, it was about 12 years ago. The sandwiches were HUGE! I always had enough to make 2 meals out of one sandwich. Now, I won't bo...

Panera Bread - Small tasteless Sandwiches
They have definitely reduced the size and for $10 is way to expensive for what you get. The presentation was sloppy with meat just smashed together inside and it tasted, maybe just OK......not like a great tasting sandwich it used to be. I won't be going to another Panera Bread anytime soon......they are cutting costs by reducing sandwich sizes and keeping the prices higher than most offerings. They have gone downhill fast IMHO. Very...

Anonymous I agree. We were very disappointed

not to mention i ordered it without the weird spicy giardiniera but of course true to panera form...it came on the sandwich. i scrapped it off but the taste was already soaked into the bread. the last 6/12 times ive gone to panera they mess my order up. i have even contacted the customer support people and they told me someone from the franchise would get in contact with me - its been 2 months and i still havent heard anything. But i still went there because i loved the italian...

Dear my fellow panera enjoyers, I have recently tried the panera "new" Italian sandwich, I am sorry to say it was not satisfying to my tasetbuds.Unfortunately, it was smaller than the last Italian sub, it had less meat than the old Italian sub, and it had dissatfactory choped unknown substance on the bottom, with a bizarre spotted unknown white sauce. I am sorry to say I would like the new one back.Thank you and have a great day.

Anonymous Some genius at Panera apparently decided they no longer wanted customers and a good way to get rid of them would be to change the menu.

Anonymous The new Italian is nasty. I got it not realizing it wasn't the Italian combo I would always get. It tastes like vomit. I couldn't be anymore upset! It's one thing I always get...

They changed their sandwiches.I always get their Italian sub with fresh veggies and three meats with a peppercin on each half. Now they have it in a tasteless baguette with some wine salami. Looks like all their sandwiches now have type of coleslaw. My wife had the the rosasted turkey and it had the coleslaw on hers. Both sandwiches had a pile of arugula as a filler. Neither one of us could finished our sandwiches. Now it looks like Panera will...

Except the Italian Combo, it WAS the only sandwich that tasted 'normal'. Not anymore! Wow did you completely ruin that. I didn't even know it changed I ordered an Italian combo and got this abomination instead. Right off I noticed that it was super small even for a Pick 2. Literally the Baguette that came with it was bigger than the sandwich. But that was actually good because there was less to throw away. I took a *** and it was just awful....

I literally only came here for the Italian combo. Panera has been one of my favorite restaurants for so long it became a running joke amongst my close friends. But now my favorite sandwich is gone. Covelli, I don't know what you think your going to accomplish, but I do know you've lost a me as a customer. I don't care if this is the future, I don't pay you to be progressive, I pay you for one sandwich and one sandwich only. If the combo is...
