I love La Bottega! Great selection of products and super sandwiches. Go early or late for lunch if you want to avoid the line (but it's worth it). Pick up pizza or pasta and sauce for dnner, with fresh focaccia. Friendly, knowledgable staff, too.

Great little Italian store that has a variety of hard to find products. In the back you can order sandwiches for take-out or sit-down at the lunch counter for some home made pizza, pasta, and sandwiches.

All the very best and hardest to find Italian food can be found here in the store. Shop and then pause for a super lunch with excellent coffee, beer, wine and of course the tiramisu.

Hi. As I do not require gluten-free options, I have never taken notice of the availability of gluten-free breads at the sandwich counter.
