Best Subs
Readers, upstate: Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop (various locations)

Readers, downstate: Casapulla’s (19331 Lighthouse Blvd., Rehoboth Beach, 227-7827)

Critics, upstate: Ioannoni’s Specialty Sandwiches owner Mike Ioannoni breaks down a great sub to the fundamentals: quality bread, fresh meats and superior cheese. His bread comes from Amalfitano’s Italian Bakery in New Castle, a big-time local favorite. The lunchmeats are fresh and the turkey and roast beef are cooked daily. The cheeses, especially the thin-cut provolone, are tops. (624 E. Basin Road, New Castle, 322-5000)

Critics, downstate: The oil on a sub from Pizzadili is as important to the sandwich’s flavor as motor oil is to the engine of a finely tuned race car. The triumvirate of olive, vegetable and soy oils combined with a fresh roll, Italian meats, provolone and all the fixins have had folks in Kent County heading to Pizzadili for 53 years. The Pizzadili Special, featuring capicola, pepper ham, sopressata and provolone, is a classic. The meatballs may not be homemade, but combined with the house sauce, they make an awesome sandwich. (2089 S. Dupont Hwy., Dover, 697-9555)
