“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Hidden in a back room inside this local Italian market, there is a bakery serving fresh bread and really delicious Sicilian style pizza. Sold by the slice (1/4 pizza rectangle) and with a variety of toppings. Simply delicious ! You can also shop there for some nice Italian cheese, salami, and other Italian delicacies. Overall, worth the visit, even if you just inhale the nice aroma of the place.

“Best Italian grocer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

I've always loved this store, and when I came back on vacation, I was staying just around the corner in the Residence Inn, and found it a great little place to stop for the best Italian groceries, from pancetta and prosciutto to cheeses and olives.

“Enjoy the groceries but skip the restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

If there were more competition, Micucci's would be better. As it is, it's the only real choice for Italian deli stuff. Very good cheese selection and a nice variety of olives. Basil in season. Huge selection of pasta.
Skip the pizza-- they stole the recipe from the chef who they fired unreasonably. He has a new place opening this spring so eat there instead. I still go to miccuci's but only the retail side.

“What is All is Excitement about with This Pizza???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Was very excited to be able to experience Micucci's famous slab of pizza. Waited in line last Monday with 10 or so more folks.After a 40 minute wait we got 2 slices/slabs for the price of one.
What a disappointment, the dough was not completely cooked, ver doughy, the sauce was very acidy in taste with very little extra spices or herbs, the cheese was minimal and poor quality. My partner & I barely ate half of one & gave the other slice to the trash can.
Micucci's needs to get a notion of what a good slice of pizza ought to be.
