Even though the name suggests that the sandwich originated in Italy, it is an American creation. It was invented by baker Giovanni Amato in 1903 in Portland, Maine. He was selling bread in a street cart and started receiving requests from the local dockworkers. They were asking for bread rolls with sliced meat, cheese, and vegetables. Thus, the Italian sandwich was born.
Amato’s creation consisted of fresh-baked bread, ham, American cheese, onions, green pepper, slices of tomato, kalamata olives, sour pickle, and salad oil.
There are many varieties to this popular sandwich and some of them are:
