BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - It's open! Berkeley Heights finally has the Italian market it has been wishing for since the closing of Mar Juls, the go to sandwich joint in the 60's and 70's. 

Bella Nonna's is just what the community has been looking for -- you walk into the Italian market and there's a feeling of being in Berkeley Heights' own mini "Eataly" where guests can dine in or take out. There is limited seating to enjoy a cappuccino or coffee with a cannoli. They serve sandwiches, specialty dishes, fresh fish, stromboli, mozzarella and bread [including gluten-free] -- all made in-house.

Owner Nick Liuzzi, whose Manhattan store is a fixture in Battery Park for the past 20 years, has family in the Berkeley Heights area and saw a need to bring "something like this" here. "It's a nice area and deserves a nice Italian place to get a half-tray or a couple of home cooked dishes," said Liuzzi. "You have to give them good things."
