We're in love with foods

  • We love high quality food and drink. We love the stories about it, the people who produce it, the places it comes from. 
Food unites us all
  • Good food brings all of us together, and helps us find a common point of view.We believe that one of the greatest sources of joy is what happens around a dinner table. 
Our passion has become a job

  • We've dedicated our daily lives to promoting a real understanding of high-quality food and drink. How lucky are we that we get to do what we love?
The secret to quality of life? Quality products
  • By creating and offering the best products, we improve our own lives, and bring added value to yours. Enter a world dedicated to quality: that means quality food, quality drink and ultimately quality time.
Our target audience is everyone
  • Whether you're here to buy a loaf of bread, prepare for a lavish dinner or sit down to enjoy a meal, we want this to be your place. We want you to be comfortable, happy, and enriched by every visit. 
Eat. Shop. Learn
  • This is a store with stories. Here, you won't just discover what you love, you'll also learn about what you love.
We're in this together
  • What you choose every day determines what we'll stock on our shelves over time. When you demand quality products, you support the local farmers, fishermen, butchers, bakers, and cheesemakers who produce them. You create a better environment—for eating and beyond. 
Our three promises to you

  1. Choice: We offer a diverse selection of quality food and drink 
  2. Accessibility: We are dedicated to offering the best products at the lowest possible price points. 
  3. Knowledge: We feel that it's not just important that we know everything about what we sell and serve, but that you also learn about the products we are so passionate about. We share with you the stories of the people and places behind all that we offer. The more you know the more you enjoy. 
Your trust is earned everyday

  • In all ways, we promise to be scrupulously honest. We'll never encourage you to buy more than you need or more expensive than you can afford.
The end goal
  • Our goal is to have you as our customer for a lifetime. The easiest means to that end is offering the best food and drink as well as the best environment in which to discover and expand your tastes. 
On that note, we look forward to seeing you again very soon!

Juliette A.

Attended: Pizza Alla Pala Workshop, Hands-On

I got the class for my father as a holiday gift and we loved it. The dough was already made (it takes at least four hours to make/rise), so we pressed the pre-made dough, added our own toppings, and waited for it to cook (about 15 minutes.) While we waited we had ample wine and a small arugula salad. The class was really short though. It would have been nice if it was a little quieter and each of the guests could have asked the instructor more questions.

Way to basic

Dimitri F.

Attended: Sausage-Making 101, Hands-On

The class was great.


Attended: Guided Salumi Tasting: Calabrian Meats

It was difficult to hear what was being said with all the background noise. Also, the location listed on the site was not where the tasting was. We had to ask someone for assistance after waiting a while where we thought the tasting would be held.


Attended: Guided Salumi Tasting: Calabrian Meats

It was in a different part of the location from where it was described to be, and only had one other person. The salumi was good and the host was knowledgeable. Though, a surprise visit from the makers of the salumi led to a lengthy history of the business and family. If kept shorter, it might have been more enjoyable. Wine and other food pairing might have made this more rounded experience.

Attended: Walking Tour of Eataly

Great tour - very educational and fun! Loved learning more about the different destinations within Eataly and seeing the "labs" where much of their great food is made. The tour moved at an ideal pace - we never spent a lot of time standing around - and the samples were yummy too!
