I love the bread..that's it. They started to skimp out on the fresh mozzarella cheese on their sandwiches, and their customer service needs some fixin'.

Mary Basta

Holly Frye

We bought pignoli cookies that are priced at a very high price and thanks be we only bought a quarter pound to try them. They were stale and horrible. Next we tried cookies dipped in chocolate and sprinkles and again they were horrible. One place I'll never go back to

ARK Global Consulting

Superior food and service!

Ryan Schwartz

Counter-serve deli with cold sandwiches and sides. Hot food like pizza and such (except on Sunday, I believe). Desserts and sodas and chips. Plus a grocery selection as well. Excellent bread, excellent meats. Know what you want before you step up to the counter though - they are efficient but not interested in conversation. *Edit* I've been coming here for over 12 years. I just love those sandwiches.

Wayne Brackett

Best place around . Great selection. And the focaccia the best

Carlos Fernandes

Great people and food. Especially the food. OMG

David Sheldon

Good sandwiches. Good bread. Price for cookies seems high.

Daniel LaFon

Great timely service and awesome prices. We asked the older gentleman behind the counter what was the best sandwich available and he made it for us. I don't even remember what he called it, but it was delicious. The grilled peppers are a must have addition on your sandwich though; the added flavor was awesome.

Rocco Santomenno

Sugey Galvagni

Top of the line quality, the closest to real Italian in New Jersey. The cheese is amazing, the bread out of the world, and the cleanliness back and front of the house is exceptional. But be careful with the costumer service, the one of the owner racially target me and my friend, just because she tough my friend did not pay for a simple water, that be previously paid. Horrible experience, I am a regular and my friend came from out of the country and I am recommend the place as one of the best. So sad the quality not always meet competency ,friendliness and costumer service. Clemente's

This place is the real deal. Great service at the deli counter. Busy at lunch with local workers coming in for lunch. Prepared food was good, the actual service could use a little polish but overall a great place. They also have a selection of dry Italian goods in addition to the baked goods, prepared foods and deli counter.

E. K.

Alexander Magallon

Great place for lunch. They have a deli type section and a hot food type section. I usually order the Clemente special sandwich. Fresh baked goods, hot meals and Mozzarella. They also have imported Italian ingredients. There is seating, parking and bathrooms located here.

Christina Meyers

Love Clemente' owned and operated and the food is made with love. Clean and simple, old school Italian storefront serving great sandwiches (packed with meat and cheese) and delicious hot food. Always a line and never a disappointment. Try the cheesecake cone for dessert..its decadent and heavenly.

Cristina Conte

I don't know how anyone can give this place a bad review. I grew up going to Sicily every summer and I can genuinely say that this is as close as its going to get to an authentic Italian Bakery. Everything is fresh and homemade, it is delicious, some of the best bread I have ever had! Great food and family!

Ashley Huff

Bakery pastries are old, 7 grain bread has a few seeds sprinkled on the top, plain bread on the inside....and expensive. Wont see me there again.

Jeff Naddy

great homemade options, pasta, cheese etc...

I'm actually very upset that at the fact that I never knew this place existed. I had a coworker take me there for lunch and I fell in love as soon as I walked in. Ordered a ham and cheese sandwich and had a food coma. Great food/Great service. Been going back ever since.

Peter Koulikourdis

Best bread & heroes in northern Jersey

Juan Perez-b

the best

Rocky LaBarbera

Used to be the to go place for great sandwiches, but no more. Got so popular they forgot how to make a good chicken cutlet sandwich, won't be going back. And not a fan of the deli man who not only seems to always be under the weather, but gives your sandwich some extra kick with a few sneezes while you're not looking. I wish I could say I'm joking but I'm not...

Patrizia Giassa

Real Italian salumeria. One of the last few left. Great service too

jude charles

Great Sandwiches, only downside is they're a little pricey, but once or twice a week it's worth it if it's within your budget

chris corbin

Excellent Turkey and cheese sandwich. The bread was perfect. And they had Diet Stewart's Root Beer

Zios Pizza

Great Bread! We order bread for our pizzeria from here. The bread is the best around and they provide great customer service. If you need bread for your business, just call them. You won’t regret it!!!

William Holencsak

Great meal. Chicken parm and ravioli tasted amazing. Highly recommend eating here.

Robin Samuel

The fresh mozzarella made there rosted peppers and balzamic with parma. That's what I always get and stuffed peppers and daily fresh made. Everything in that place is worth a trip.

Mike Marketti

Best salumi, best cheese, breads are

Phil Sz

Real Italian deli and bakery. You won't be disappointed.

Russell Verducci

Best in the area

Justin Derevyanik

Good food but some of the people that work there have an attitude

Glenn Zabransky

Great local spot. Has everything you're looking for for lunch or otherwise. Deli (hot and cold sandwiches). Hot food (pasta, seafood) Pizza and bakery with the best bread around. A little pricey, but definitely great for a little treat now and then!

Russell Kaminsky

Always great!

Richard Weems

I get excited when I have a long enough lunch to run over here for a sandwich or an item from the hot bar. Absolutely delicious, fresh bread, baked on the premises I believe. Fridays are calamari days, and that’s when I really feel like I’m giving myself a treat.

Leonora Ragab

I thought I was in Heaven or at least Italy!!

Pete Caruso

Love this place. I remember them when they were in Union City. Great sandwiches and pizza!

Themendous Sales Dept.

My very first job was working for the Clemente family when they were known as Central Bakery in Union City NJ. I was 11 years old and wanted to work. I was already familiar with the bakery as my family had been buying bread from them since we came from Italy in ‘73. I was so sad when they shut their doors at Central Bakery and never knew why. This past week I was driving down a S.Hackensack street to visit a vendor.. there was street construction going on and I was re-directed. What a thrill it was to see the name Clemente bakery! I pulled in right away and got to meet Cosmo, who remembered me! I think I left with half the store!

Guy Cali

Great sandwiches, throw on the fresh mozzarella, can't beat it.

Alex G

My wife and I were looking for breakfast place and found Clemente. It was a surprise since the restaurant and deli is in an industrial area. I'll sum it up the bread was excellent and the sandwiches superb. The hot meals were great as well! Now I know where to get fresh bread.

Scott Budinich

Violin Panov

This place is great, so is the staff. I absolutely love to visit it.

Samer Abraham

One of the better deli's in the area. Awesome tomato pies that remind me of when I was a kid and Bergen County had a stronger Italian presence. They do a great prosciutto di Parma sandwich but do yourself a favor and don't put too much on it as it's pretty good quality meat.

Ricky Mondino


Euro Car Doctor

Great place for Italian food (great selection, daily specials) and desserts but be forewarned... it gets really busy (both take-out and eat-in) during lunch time. You can't go wrong with this place.

Nicholas J Ferraro

Great hot food Mon-Fri, amazing sandwiches (Clemente Special is #1), bread, Italian market, etc. Can't go wrong, ya welcome!

The best

Muneca Rustica

Not bad. It's a deli n bakery. They have hot food during the week. Bet it's good but it's usually during work hours so i haven't tried there lunch. They have store items around, too. They get busy

Nelson Clark

Great service, food and atmosphere

Lee Weinstein

This is, by far, one of my favorite bakeries. Unlike some of the other fabulous bakeries around the area, this one has a bit of a twist. It has an abundance of your traditional Italian meats, cheeses, breads, and a superb deli. You also will not walk into this bakery and expext to find a slew of Italian cookies and desserts, save that for Palermo's or B&W, but you will find some of the best breads around. I highly recommend this place for a great lunch. Deli sandwiches, hot sandwiches, hot plates and cold salads, you cant go wrong.


All I can say is OMG for real Italian food and people this is a must stop

Christopher Locarno

Great food every time I go

Dan Thurston

An authentic southern Italian bakery and deli. Large selection of homecooked food like your nonna used to make. Highly variable pricing -- some items (like deli sandwiches) are very reasonable, while others have eye-opening price tags.
