This sandwich shop and Italian market has become my favorite place to grab a take-out lunch in the area. (on route 33 just west of Luciento's)
They have a nice selection of Italian meats, store-made mozzarella (very good, but a touch saltier than I'm used to) and ricotta, surprising homemade antipasto items - like amazingly sweet sundried red peppers (perfect on a sandwhich with spicy capicollo and sharp provolone, olive oil and balsamic) - and great homemade bread that's always oven-fresh around lunchtime.
(btw/ "great homemade bread" is not a term I use lightly.)
Avoid the reheated strombollis! They look appealing but are actually gummy-textured and surprisingly flavorless. The hot buffet menu items are kind of hit-or-miss. I liked the meatballs, but the sausages in the sausage and peppers were sadly dry. I did enjoy the farfalle with sausage and broccoli rabe, however (but, then again, I'm pro-garlic.).
They make a prosciutto bread that's fantastic out of the oven, but dries out very quickly. Only get it if it's still warm and you plan on eating it soon.
I'm a little disappointed this place doesn't make fresh pasta, but I have used their pizza dough at home and it's excellent and well matched with their homemade moz.
