“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

This is going to be a mixed review so take it for what it's worth. I ordered sandwich platters and a large caprese salad for a meeting today. The order arrived exactly on time and the sandwiches were very attractive and tasty. Pricing was fine and they didn't charge extra for delivery!
But here's the downside: I had been quite specific that I had two attendees who are strict vegetarians and asked to make sure that at least three/four of the sandwiches were tomato/mozz or roasted veggies as specified on their order form. Unfortunately, none of the sandwiches were veggie-friendly. And the order came with two small packs of mustard, five small packs of mayonnaise and no paper products whatsoever. I've never had a catered lunch where paper products and mustard/mayo/ketchup, etc was not included; if I had been aware, I could have provided but to not provide and not indicate either on their menu or when ordering that this is not provided was really problematic.
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.)
Place is great. Great bread (key to a great sandwich) and plenty of quality cold cuts. Ordered the mortadella with provolone, Italian Combo and the Belgiovine special. All great. Will definitely return to try some hot subs and also some of the other items I saw. (Ie stuffed bread, etc)
We are always a fan of Belgies. We usually shop a la carte and prep our own sandwiches - which usually includes the breaded chicken cutlet, ciabatta bread, roasted peppers, mozzarella and broccoli rabe, but found that ordering one of their prefixed sandwiches to be better priced. We had a regular size prosciutto, mozzarella, roasted peppers and arugula sandwich which was big enough for 2. The eggplant sounds amazing and will definitely put that on our list to try next time. Along with their outside seating, it's awesome they are able to open Broughton Grill next door for indoor dining. Plenty of options.
I've worked in Cedar Grove for almost 9 years and never heard of this place. The other day we went during lunch on a tip from our coworker.
BOOM!!! This place is awesome! The staff is so nice and inviting and the atmosphere speaks everything Italian and delicious. The menu items on there make you want to take all of it home with you. We were even lucky enough to get a sample of fresh mozzarella, which tasted wonderful.
I would highly recommend this place for lunch and can't wait to get back. Found my new Italian deli.
The best Italian deli. Hands down. They also have a large selection of there food prepackaged and ready to go. LOVE IT.
Holy sandwich is this place amazing! I could eat these all day. Everything what you expect a sub to be. The ingredients are super fresh and tasty. They have the right pizazz. I've already have my 2nd sub in two days so this might turn into a problem!
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!
Always great food and service. Great value. Their Italian sausage is great. Love the salads. Boyfriend had a turkey and cheese sub and loved it. Everything so fresh.
