We're going to pat ourselves on the back a bit here. What began as a modest shop in the now-iconic South Philadelphia Italian Market in 1939, has now blossomed into a Philadelphia culinary institution and destination. With 5 stores (and counting), a bustling ecommerce site, a best-in-class wine bar & cafe, catering operating, events venue, bottle shops, and private label specialty food line, we've done our best to celebrate good food and good people in every way imaginable.

If you're looking for a partner / source for all things cheese, pairings, charcuterie, or gourmet gifting, feel free to reach out and we'll get you the goods - whether it's imagery, content, or expert quotes and commentary.
