Dattilo’s is a small deli with excellent sandwiches that are perfect for a quick lunch or a picnic at nearby Pennypack Park on a sunny day. It’s also a great choice if you’re in the Northeast and have a craving for meat, bread, and cheese on a roll (we realize this could be daily). All of the sandwiches here are long (we’re talking the length of Joel Embiid’s forearm), but it’s the roast pork sandwich that always gets our attention. The meat is thick-cut and the crunchy broccoli rabe and slices of sharp provolone provide a sweet and earthy balance to the salty pork. It’s a true demonstration of the power of quality ingredients, and if we don’t eat at least one a week, even our cats will notice how crabby we’ve become.
