I have not eaten at the restaurant...the store is fantastic with one exception...I picked up some ravioli that were vacuum packed and I had to throw them out because they would separate properly and broke all up in the water...I was really looking forward to having them,...

Besides the typical grocery items you'd expect (dried pastas, canned imported tomato products, wide range of cheeses) they also offer local fresh vegetables and fresh herbs. They have an attached cafe open for lunch with... More

But the grumpy old biddy customers probably drive them nuts. Never seen such rude, entitled customers. "Gimme"... "I need"... no "may I please" here. Ugly manners seem to be the norm. The deli folks are great! Mike rocks!! Wonderful deli and cafe.

This is a nice little market with lots of selection for those unique Italian only recipes and dishes. It's comfort food at its finest. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. I was searching for a pesto and pasta combination and found the perfect pairing to satisfy my craving. They also have a good selection of olive oils (real olive... More
