“Pleasantly Dangerous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Living in the apartment next door makes it easy to visit/shop DiBruno's . The butcher(s) are fabulous and meet every request you make for any special cut. Overall, the meat case beautiful, the seafood always fresh. You can eat your way through the store on the samples alone. Cheese---how can you pass by the best selection in town. The prepared foods make for an easy quick lunch or dinner. The staff, extremely helpful, happy and kind. It's nice when they all break into song while working. Pleasantly Dangerous???? Easy to drop more money than you planned to spend!

“An Italian Market tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We shop at DIBruno's in the Italian Market and never leave disappointed. The staff is lnowledgable about the cheeses and other items they sell (salamis, appitizer items like roasted peppers and marinated mushrooms) and they will always give you a taste to tempt you into buying more!

“Great spot for browsing and snacks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We always stop off for samples from their amazing cheese shop and grab a latte and almond croissant from their bakery...upstairs when it's open is a great little cafe...and public restroom, which comes in handy when you're spending all day shopping on Chestnut and Walnut Streets!

“Awesome is the only term for this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The greatest addition to Chestnut Street in decades! You won't believe your eyes when you walk in the front door...produce, bakery, salads, prepared foods, deli counter, fresh meats & seafood, imported groceries, coffee bar, upstairs seating and the amazing "cheese cave" with more varieties than you can imagine!

“Excellent Choice for Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

It was recommended by the concierge at the hotel and the food was great. Really enjoyed the stuffed French Toast! The prices were good as well.
