A family run business that is loved by locals. Grab any of their prepared menu items and you will not be disappointed. Bread, pizza, sauce and meatballs - and many more items. Great little Italian grocery items too. A loyal following for a reason.

Love this Italian store. I was just on there on Saturday buying, homemade sausage, lasagna noodles and a case of tomatoes to make sauce. Toni Auletta and her family are great. Thank you for being so wonderful

We visited this Italian deli at a friends request. It was a great experience. It was so busy, regulars coming and going, buying delicious meats and cheeses, breads and of course the pastries. Everything was fresh and looked just made. We had to try the cannoli's. They had run out of them when we arrived, so the owner went in... More

Great breads-the rolls are addictive. Quality cold cuts and good prepared foods. Eggplant Parmesan is very Good. A favorite lunch stop for sandwiches

Thank Noracd
