Despite how extremely busy they get around lunchtime, the staff is always friendly, and the food is always good. If you walk in to the very small lobby to find a crowd, just be patient and wait your turn because it won't take more than a few minutes for them to get to you. Remember, it's busy because it's good!

We get all of our subs or cheesesteaks from Cappriottis. There's a huge variety and all are packed with delicious, fresh items. Multiple sizes & breads are always fresh. Calling ahead assures your order is ready. Just ask & they'll prepare anything. Best in the state.

They make the best sub sandwiches around. They are a little pricey, but worth the money. Everything is always very fresh. It is mostly a take-out shop. They do have an area with a table outside the door but not really a place I'd want to eat. They take orders by phone also, so you can save time picking up... More

We were hungry. Even the small sandwiches are a full meal. Definitely worth a stop. For years locals have been calling in their orders to pick up and it's great fun watching the counter staff interact with their regulars. No spot to eat inside but we drove into New Castle and headed down to the riverside park where we enjoyed... More

Traveled across the bridge from Jersey to visit, well worth the drive. Ordered the 12" Meatball Parmesan. It was fantastic, very good meatballs, sauce and cheese.
