Walked inside and thought we would never b waited on as there were many many people inside. No worries. Even in the sea of people the workers were happy and polite and helpful when asked a question or where to find an item. I walked I side with my 6 month old grandbaby and I thought I came home to...

Decent sandwiches and a good selection of Italian meats, cheeses, pastas and other products. But Arlington residents rave about this place and I wouldn't go out of the way to visit.

This is quite an impressive little store. Regional/ethnic sandwich selection is wonderful, but that's only the beginning. Lots of deserts, cookies, chocolate, you name it. This is a "small sample" of the "home country." Fine selection of cheese, wine, and other "not so easy to find" specialty food items. Olive oil, you name it. You will be a repeat customer...a...

Italian Store has very good dell meats, sandwhiches, and pizza. The meatball sub and smoked turkey breast are my two favorite sandwhiches. I strongly recommend it!

The new Italian Store in Westover is wonderful! So pretty, so much room, so many lovely Italian products! A friend who lives in the neighborhood and I stopped by for lunch last week. She'd been there already, and I've only been to the OLD Italian Store (which is still there at 3123 Lee Highway), and I've only ever had their... More

This review is for the new location in Westover. I finally made it here for lunch after waiting a very long time for this new location to open. The store is huge, clean, and stocked with many wonderful items. The wine selection is great and reasonably priced compared to other small stores. The counter service was superb! The staff were...

Great high quality Italian meats. Don't leave off the peppers and who doesn't like a fresh made cannoli.

This store is a restraunt/store. It is hard to imagine that there used to be a dumpy 7-11 here. There is no service, but you pick up food at a counter. The food is amazing. I have gotten their meatball sub, and it was delicious.

The long anticipated opening of the Italian store met with disappointment. It doesn't seem to have good flow yet and after a bit of a wait our order was less than impressive. We called and called and gave up and called the other location. In the end it was resolved. I really hope they work it out for our next... More
