Real Italian Bread in New Jersey

I'm an Italian who loves a great crusty loaf that is also long on flavor...hard to find hear in central Jersey...not like the bread I remember growing up with in North Jersey.....
Bread loving Italians(and anyone else)...what is your favorite Italian bread...and how close is a great love to the ocean county area

    leethebard - have you tried Demarco's Italian Bakery and Specialties in Matawan? IMHO, they make some of the chewiest, crustiest, yummiest italian breads i've ever found in the garden state (plus a whole lot of other terrific stuff!)...

    Lee El Bard=== being Irish I am not a expert in Eye-trallion bread,
    but you are in good company.

    Old Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra complained about the bread in California,
    so he had a dozen loaves -- or so --- shipped by air from Hoboken every week.

    Mange, mange !!!!

    Three best Italian breads in N.J., by my reckoning, not in any particular order:

    Nicolo's, Montclair
    Cucuzzella's, Jefferson St., Newark,
    Marie's, Hoboken, N.J.
    Calandra's, Newark

    Thanks for all the info. so far. The only one I've had is Calandra's. It is sold around here in many super markets. I think that's the one Frank Sinatra had shipped from Newark. I think it's gone a bit too commercial, and for my taste, doesn't quite taste like the real think...but fairly close. I gotta give some of the other's a chance. We aren't too far from Collingswood. Thanks for the posts!

    You really seem to be a true fan of Italian bread so maybe you might not mind driving into Philly to SARCONE"S Bakery. This is the bread used in a lot of famous Philadelphia Hoagies / Cheesesteaks. They make many types of bread but the Hard seeded is what they are most famous for.

    LEE just a sidenote. If you are by Collingswood and you venture to the Collingswood Farmer's Market checkout DUKER T's Stuffed olives and peppers. Great new company out of Millville, NJ.
