They have a lot of different options for lunch and their selection of olives is one of the best in calgary. I only wish they had another branch in the south end of the city.

This Italian deli shop has a multitude of kitchen items and food! Specialty foods also. Try the homemade garlic crostini at the deli counter. The breads were wonderful. Loved it. It is located not far from downtown on Centre St.

After reviewing so many great reviews about this place, I made this my 1st stop after getting off the plane at Calgary airport to pick up food and groceries for a week-long stay. Got freshly made spaghetti, house-made pasta sauce, tiramisu, and sparkling water. I was very excited at the thought of authentic Italian food after having visited Boston earlier... More
