“Creamy mozzarella is made fresh on the premises daliy. Aficionados swear it’s the best in New Jersey outside Hoboken or Jersey City.
Like any ham-lover worth their salt, Belgiovine’s knows that the finest prosciutto is imported from Parma.
The Citterio sopressata is slow-aged and seasoned just like they do in the ‘old country’.
Roasted red peppers round out the perfect Italian sandwich
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar add the perfect finishing touch.”
– Rita Gernant of the Montclair Magazine, Issue-Back To School 2010

Got the masterpiece and the fonz on a Saturday afternoon for lunch!! The chicken cutlets on the fonz were absolutely and perfectly delicious. Moist, somewhat crispy, super flavorful. Bread on both sandwiches and fresh mozz was fantastic too. The only downside on the masterpiece was they forgot to put the prosciutto on! It was still delicious with eggplant, tomato, mozz and arugula but next time would love to try the fresh prosciutto which looked like it was straight from Italy!
Would also like to try the buff chicken roll and the rice balls next time!
Listen! Listen! My Wife is a finicky eater. I mean I don't like less than great food, maybe it's a Guy thing,but I'll season wack food and "power through".
Anyway, my Wife liked the Turkey & Cheese Sandwich and the Caesar Salad
W/ Chicken. Me?!.... Me?! I am very happy that I found a bonafide Italian Deli.
Also, the customer service is great. The man at the cash register, who I assume is the Mgr or Owner, offered me a sample of their Mozzarella which they prepare fresh THREE TIMES A DAY. Delicious!
This is my 1st time coming here and I am confident their entire menu is delicious. Man.....what else can I say? Oh! They've got something I've never heard of "Pepperoni Bread" WHAT!?!?!?!?
Also, I can already say that they shouldn't change a thing and I specifically mean Belgiovine's NOT having seats inside and a "few" seats outside.

That's all for now. I gotta figure out the next time I'm ordering from Belgiovine's Deli.
We just ordered from here for a belated Christmas party and were surprised at how much food we got and thrilled that everything was not only reasonably priced but absolutely delicious. We will definitely order from here again. The delivery was on time and service was excellent. We have leftovers for days and couldn't be happier!
I want to like this place but im always underwhelmed.
Last time I ordered a specialty sandwich (think it was called mka) and they drenched it in balsamic vinegar.. Almost ruined it. Most people would have brought it back..
Also very skimpy with chicken and prociutoto..
I will give it another shot because its the only Italian deli close enough to run out to real quick..
I believe Rosarios in Watchung plaza is much better..
I love this place. Best deli in the area for sure. Bread is fresh, sandwiches are generously portioned, service is fast and friendly even though place is usually pretty busy. Italian cookies were delish! Call ahead for fast pick up. Street parking only, so keep your fingers crossed and hope a spot on a side street is free.
Stumbled here quite by accident when the Montclair Art Museum on the next block wasn't open yet. Yay for me!
My husband grew up with his parents owning a deli just like this, so this was a fun step into the past. We had the brocolli rabe and porchetta special as well as a traditional prosciutto & mozzarella sandwich, both made to order and happy to take our specific desires.
We bought a few other odds and ends in the shop, and they were kind enough to let us eat in the adjacent restaurant since we're out of towners with nowhere else to go on a scorching hot day.
Super delicious, really fresh, and truly friendly service. I want to come back when it's not so hot and/or I have a cooler in the car.
MKA sand which was off the hook! true definition of a jersey true italian deli in the heart of montclair you can find any of the italian dishes you want! from fresh mozzarella to thinly sliced eggplant
Excellent carry out sandwiches. We had a variety for the he whole family and all were super delicious.
A coworker of mine brought me the tuna sandwich and I eat a lot of Tuna and this sandwich is DELICIOUS! I am so amazed by how good this sandwich taste, it has the perfect ratio of ingredients. Not too much Mayo, or other spices... PERFECT! And it's huge a big sandwich for the cost, definitely worth it and will be bringing my family to try this wonderful place.
Take it from a guy who has been going to Nicolo's at least once per week for each of the past 20 years (and LOVE it). I hit Belgiovine's for a change of pace and I can say this place is second to none. Let's face it Jersey is known for great deli's. This joint is right at the top of the heap. I had a ham, spicy sopresata with a piece of fried eggplant sub and I WEPT over it! Go Here NOW!
Always amazing sandwiches! From the eggplant, to the chicken, to the Italian meats, all of it is delicious! Great place to swing by for lunch pick-up and now they also have a room next door to sit and eat if you want to dine-in. A good Italian deli
Can we overlook the fact that my GPS took me through Upper Montclair to get to this deli and it hurt to know I'll never be rich and live somewhere this nice?
The litmus test for an Italian deli has to be their homemade sausage and/or meatballs and gravy ('sauce' or 'marinara' for you heathens) and on my first visit I went with the meatballs. And they were excellent. (They also knocked it out of the park with their breaded chicken cutlets, cold cuts and a few other odds and ends I picked up.)
To make sure it wasn't a fluke on my second visit I had to try their 'El Fuego' sandwich when I saw one component was 'muffuletta' (the traditional Muffuletta is without a doubt my all-time favorite sandwich and not something you ever see in Jersey). This heavy-duty sandwich was a scorchingly delicious work of beauty. My mouth was burning and I couldn't have been happier. (And all the other goodies I picked up on this visit were dynamite once again.)
Official verdict: Belgiovine's is fantastic.
Very cool staff (working their tails off behind the counter) to boot.
(It's Montclair so it should go without saying that it's a wee bit more expensive and parking is going to be a headache.)
