Cilento Sandwich Company & Valente’s Italian Specialties – Haddonfield, NJ

Cilento Sandwich Company & Valente’s Italian Specialties – Haddonfield, NJ

Fyi – This place now has a new concept called Valente’s Cucina BYOB so the below is now longer valid, but they may keep many aspects of the past.

Sitting inside of Valente’s Italian Specialties the business Cilento Sandwich Company runs out of the same space. You order online from Valente’s Italian Specialties website, choose either pick-up or delivery and the time. The experience is seamless, service was very friendly, and portions are generous with reasonable prices.  I had the Traditional cheesesteak made of thin-sliced fresh beef and cheese served on half of a Sarcone’s long loaf and the Corrado sandwich which is chicken cutlet, fresh mozzarella, house-roasted peppers, extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Able to order from Valente’s Italian Specialties on the same order I decided to give them a try and had their anise pizzelles and the ricotta cannoli cream.

Sitting in a large strip mall, you can find Tu Sei Bella. They focus heavily on pizza, but they have a large menu of the Italian favorites. I went with their chicken cutlet sandwich with provolone, and spinach with a side of old bay fries with cheese.

Oath Pizza – Fashion District – Philadelphia, PA

Oath Pizza – Fashion District – Philadelphia, PA

The former mall The Gallery has been transformed into The Fashion District. They have a few food options to choose from and Oath Pizza is one of them. I gave them a try and had their Porky Fig Pizza – Mozzarella, Creme de Brie, Applegate Smoked Bacon, Black Mission Figs, Balsamic Drizzle, and fresh Basil. The service was quick and friendly, pizza was decent enough, and price was reasonable. I’ll be interested to see how The Fashion District finally pans out in the long term and if more dining and shopping destinations open up.

If you blink you’ll miss Alex’s Bakery and Food Store. The parking lot is very tiny and once inside everything is mostly in Spanish, but the service really shines with friendly and helpful employees ready to help you. They are part bakery, part convenience store, and part restaurant. The prices are very reasonable no matter what part of the business you are shopping. I went with two Tres Leches cakes for a birthday party to try a little something out of the ordinary. One was vanilla and the other was chocolate. I really enjoyed the vanilla version and if you’re looking for Spanish/Latin styled food, treats, or sweets you should put them on your radar.

What a great spot here. I had the Chicken cutlet with roasted red peppers and sharp provolone and an order of gravy fries. Everything was fresh, and service was friendly.

Southern charm can make anything taste better. Well the people at Sweet Spice are as friendly as you will find, and the food was pretty decent as well. I had their lunch special of jerk chicken with rice and peas topped with mac and cheese.

What a find and gem this little off the beaten path gelato and espresso bar is. If you blink, you will miss it and hard to see off the road. For an easier way to find them, they are located right next door to William Heritage Winery. Reggina had REALLY good Madagascar Vanilla Bean gelato. They also have all sorts of tasty Italian treats for sale there too so I decided to have a few ricotta cookies. The service was TOP NOTCH and super friendly. My only regret is I wish they were closer to where I live as I would visit them daily for a wonderful dessert or treat.

Situated near the stadiums, this is a perfect spot to grab a nice bit to eat dining in or take out for tailgating parties. Pictured is the Spimato Pizza, a white pizza with spinach and plum tomatoes and seasoning. It was really good!

This is a TINY place. Most of the orders here are take-out, but you can dine-in. They are off the beaten path, and you have to keep your eyes open to not miss them. Below is what I had: chicken empanada that was fantastic and their version of chicken dinner teriyaki mixing Asian with Mexican. It’s an interesting concept.
