Shelves are stocked with authentic items labeled in Italian, from panna da cucina (cooking cream) and sale al tartufo (truffle salt) to Pan di Stelle chocolate and hazelnut cookies sprinkled with icing stars at this Alta Mesa area shop owned by a native Italian and his American wife, who lived more than 20 years in Italy. There’s also a deli counter, where customers can buy meat (porchetta, mortadella, prosciutto crudo, cinghiale), cheese and homemade pasta to take home, or order a sandwich, salad, antipasto platter or pasta plate (think gnocchi or ravioli with butter, sage and brandy) to enjoy in store. The couple also operate a gelato shop next door.
