Not a sit down restaurant but a specialty food store. Awesome St Joseph’s sandwich’s, best fresh bread, pizza, and all kinds of pastas and sauces to make at home. Perfect for putting together a picnic!

We stopped at Virgilio’s on our way home from visiting Rockport. My husband got an Italian coldcut sub and I got a Nor’Easter on a roll. We were both beyond pleased. The service was good, the prices were reasonable and the food was delicious.

Two reasons why we make the 2.5 hour drive to Gloucester: Fresh fish and Virgilio’s Bakery! Everything in the place is made with love, from the huge variety of breads to the Italian Cookies! Everything is fresh and delicious! The staff is always so friendly...More
