Where can I find an Original 'Old School' Italian Hoagies?

Are there any suggestions for a great Italian hoagie around the outer Philadelphia-Montgomery County Area? Now I’m not talking about a Primo’s Hoagie, I’m speaking more around the lines of an authentic Italian hoagie. Like the ones made with the hot capicola ham and sharp provolone cheese. I am from Bristol, PA and there is this great Italian market named Mazzanti's that makes the type of hoagie that I am looking for, but I am currently away at college. Any suggestions???

        In that neighborhood Chickey's is another winner

          Agree on both Cosmi's & Chickie's. Heard good things about Pastifico's on 1500 block of Packer Ave. strip mall.. Parking lot at Pastifico's. Paesano's, 152 W. Girard Ave., Daddy Wad Sandwich is one of the best classic Italian hoagies you'll ever taste.

            +1 on Pastificio. And the bonus of going there is a Termini's outpost in the same strip mall so you can grab a cannoli for dessert.

                It's a full service Italian deli. They also make fresh pasta. The ravioli are really good.

          2. If you are ever near Newtown Square in Delaware County...you would want to hit A Cut Above Deli on West Chester Pike...they make great hoagies.
