If you were to boil down the unfortunate pretensiousness that has infected some of the Italian Market stores ("We used to sell cured meats; NOW we''re now a gourmet specialty shop"), you'd get DiBruno Bros. Yes, the stuff is varied, interesting beautiful, etc. But it's outrageously expensive and the place has taken on a atmosphere that could use a little dose of humility. Maybe this was inevitable with their success...

The old time vats of olives, vast selection of vinegars, oils......Great selection of cheeses....The pace of the staff is fast but smile at them and they will answer all your questions.

Di Bruno is a gem of place. I love meats and cheese and you can hold the bread. The variety here is unbelievable. Today I tried the Mama Mia sandwich which was out of this world. I really enjoyed the robust flavor. Even unwrapping my sandwich was stimulating to my taste buds.

I've lived in London, Tokyo, Paris & Washington & have come across a few Italian places such as Di Bruno brothers. Do not hesitate! The only hesitation would be how much $$ to spend...
