For sandwiches like your Italian-American grandma made, visit “Just Like Nonna’s” Deli in Orange, NJ.

Chicken cutlet with fresh Mozzarella, arugula, balsamic, and grilled long hot peppers.

In the “Little Italy” neighborhood of Orange, NJ, on Lincoln Avenue south of Route 280, there’s a tiny deli in the front yard of a residential house. Here, two sisters and their Italian mom prepare made-to-order sandwiches that will trigger your best Italian-American flavor memories. Chicken cutlets with fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers; hot peppers and egg; sausage, peppers and onions; pork loin with arugula and balsamic vinegar are all on the menu.

“Thumbprint” jelly cookies ready for the oven.

When you stop by and start chatting while your sandwich is being made, you might see “Nonna” making some jelly-filled Italian cookies or fresh biscotti.
