Though there is a café and a prepared food counter, I've never tried them. I come strictly for the pleasure of looking for the ingredients needed for an Italian home cooked meal. I always start at the deli counter at the back. Though the selection is small, compared to my local delis, the quality can not be beat. They have fresh mozzarella di buffalo, three types of sausages, several hams, including one with good sized pieces of black truffles in the middle along with a good group of prosciutto, of varying ages and some salamis that I haven't seen since my last trip to Italy. The selection of dried pastas is enormous, with more shapes and sizes than are ever seen this side of the Atlantic. The packages are heavy weights, no six or twelves ounces, but kilo sized. There is an endless array of jars of olives, condiments, sauces, cheeses, coffees, crackers, cookies, etc. I go in with only a thing or two to get, but always leave with at least one shopping bag full of things I didn't know I needed or wanted till I got to the store.
This is the place to shop for imported Italian specialties, from cookies to truffles, coffee, olive oil, cheeses, Neapolitan pasta in every imaginable shape, condiments, house-made sauces, baking chocolate, packaged gelato. Plus a selection of majolica gift wares There is a small cafe and a take-out counter featuring sandwiches, pastas, mains and side dishes.
Had a pasta to-go, the taste was ok but because of the microwave, the pasta was a bit too dried and should be better if served hot.
