        Thank you both for your replies. Aren't these two types of bread more specialties than traditional Italian? I was looking for the latter.

      2. For traditional Italian bread, we usually go to Di Rienzo. But you can get good imitations from Ace Bakery at Loblaws.

            Try Farmer's Pick at Prince of Wales and Meadowlands in the Rideauview Mall. They have a separate bakery in the store - almost completely breads.
