“The best meatballs!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

I've been going to Centrella's since I was a little kid. They are super friendly there, and their food is great. Their meatballs and sauce is the best around. Great little neighborhood Italian grocery store.

“It's not the same anymore”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Used to go here quite often and then the owner decided to sell. It's not the same place anymore and their food has gone down hill.
Since it is right outside Philly, there are dozens of alternatives in the area and all of them are competing for your business. Try one of them

“Nice little gem in Havertown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

Excellent sandwiches, great selection of Italian fare (pastas, sauces), as well as basic grocery items (milk, meats, cheeses). They have a couple small tables in the back if you want to eat it. Service was great and informative. People working there were very friendly and accommodating, as though you were in their own home. The sandwich I had was made with the freshest meats, the roll was outstanding and it was made the way a hoagie is supposed to be made. Also made with great care and patience. We will definitely go back. A perfect place, too, if you are having friends over for a game or looking for a meat/snack tray.

“Best Meatball Sub in the World - Delicious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

Dropped in with friends yesterday just driving through. Very cool atmosphere with great Italian market options. Def don't miss the fresh dough balls, imported cheeses and meats and prepared foods. The best part was the meatball hoagie with cheese. It's as good as it gets. Great hidden gem just outside of Philly.
