Grocer and Italian deli vends made-to-order sandwiches, pastas and imported goods like mozzarella.
Right off Hanover Street, in the heart of Boston’s North End, is a narrow little alley. Most who walk by don’t even notice it’s there. But for those who do, for those who make their way down this narrow little alley, they’re transported to another time, another place.
Tucked in a narrow alley just off Hanover Street and next to sister shop Bricco Panetteria, this rustic addition to North End restaurateur Frank DePasquale’s empire offers made-to-order sandwiches and sells handmade pasta in 50 shapes and sizes. Artisanal salumi hang above glass deli cases filled with fresh mozzarella and other cheeses, while the wood shelves feature olive oils, barrel-aged vinegars and other Italian enticements.
This spot’s got everything you could need to stock your pantry — fresh, handmade pastas, tons of cured meats, imported vinegars and olive oils, and a bunch of delicious sandwiches to eat while you decide what you want to bring home with you.
The shop sells more than 100 types of freshly made pasta, homemade sauces, homemade mozzarella, cured Italian meats and cheeses, olive oil, and vinegar. There’s also a sandwich menu with classic Italian, Italian tuna, oven roasted turkey, chicken parmesan, eggplant parmesan, and more. It’s run by North End restaurateur Frank DePasquale, who also owns Bricco, Mare Oyster Bar, Quattro, and Trattoria il Panino.
