Mossutos Market and Café in Wall

I picked up my 9 year old daughter from camp the other day and we decided to go out to lunch. I told her that she could pick the place. She immediately lights up and says “let’s go to Mossutos!” So I ask her if she is sure and her response was” their meatball parm sandwiches are amazing!” Really? Amazing? I drove by a couple of times and noticed the signs in front stating it was a restaurant and bar. The place that I remember was an Italian deli with great handmade mozzarella, fresh bread, big sandwiches and other Italian specialties. I use to go to this place on Sunday mornings before the football games to get all of my necessary provisions. So that was the spot for lunch today.

We get there and we go in and the first thing I notice is that they added a full restaurant complete with a full bar area. The place was not really that full when we got there because it was midafternoon but the table set up looked good. Not one on top of the other. We decided because it was a great afternoon to eat outside. We get the menus and I notice that there is a separate lunch and dinner menu. The lunch menu was full of salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, pizza and a few meat specials. I didn’t really take a good look at the dinner menu. There was also a nice wine list by the glass or bottle. The other thing that I noticed when I entered the bar area was that right behind the bar was a brick oven to make the pizzas.

It was now time to order lunch. My daughter ordered a cup of chicken noodle soup that was delicious and the “AMAZING” chicken parm sandwich. I decided to go with the personal brick oven pizza with sausage. If you like crispy, thin brick oven pizza, this is for you. I love my pizza that way so I was in total pizza heaven! Now, I have to comment on her chicken parm sandwich, the small was huge, nice fresh Italian bread overflowing with meatballs. I have to admit, after tasting it, this was a pretty amazing sandwich. Maybe I will let daughter right my next review.

I was hoping to have a good experience there but I was a little worried that maybe they grew too big and the quality might suffer because like I mentioned this place was a quality Italian deli. I have to admit that we really didn’t challenge the chef with what we ordered but as a place to get a nice lunch with great food and service this is a good place to go. I am definitely going to take my wife to this place and try out their dinner items. I have little doubt that everything will be “amazing”.

Overall damage for the soup, the sandwich and the personal pizza with a couple of soft drinks the total was about $40 bucks including tip. I think it is a good value based solely on the quality of the food and the large portions.
