italian sausages

  • b

Has anyone tried Bianco's Italian sausages? I noticed Wilson Farms started carrying them a while ago. They look really good.

The website says the'\y're made in Revere.

  1. I noticed them there too and they do look good. One of us will have to take one for the team and report back. Maybe next week...

    1. I've had them and they're very good..to be fair, the ones I had were a gift from Mr Bianco. The garlic, cheese, rabe is great. I think they make a pretty good variety and varying quality. They also supply a lot of the carts and stands around Boston.

      I'd guess that Wilson Farms would be offering their higher quality.

      1. Bianco's sausages are the only sausages I buy. I go directly to Bianco's to buy them. Bianco's Italian sausages are $10.00 for a 5 pound box.

          i like De Pasquales on Watertown street - excellent homemade italian sausages

          1. re: teezeetoo

            Second that. It's DePasquale's Sausage. 325 Watertown St Newton, MA 02458
            or you can buy them packaged at Russo's- sweet or hot only. I'm not sure what a 5 pound box goes for but it's a good buy. I love the cheese garlic sausage.

              Third. We almost always have DePasquales in the freezer.

              They are in Revere. They are a mfg..don't know if they sell retail at this location; but you could ask.

                Bianco's does sell to the public at their location of 375 Revere St. Revere MA. I have been going to Bianco's for years. You walk right into their building where they are cutting up meats and you can see where they make their sausages.

          2. never tried 'em. I get my sausges at Casa di Italia in Waltham.

              FoieGras,

              Where is Casa di Italia? Are they made in-house? Thanks.

            2. Bianco's sausage rock. If you cant get to Bianco's, fo to Stop and Shop in Somerville (or any other I would imagine) and pick them up. Much cheaper than Wilson's

                Thanks for the tip! Makes me think that the unusually tasty sausages I picked up a few months ago at S&S in Lexington when I was in a hurry were Bianco's. I hadn't paid attention to the brand, but my husband and I both loved them.

              2. Are they with or without fennel seed?

                  I'll let you know. I'm picking up some hot sausages for a pasta dish tonight. The website lists a fennel sausage among other types.

                  1. re: Bostonbob3

                    Bianco's Italian sweet sausages are made with fennel seeds. I'm not sure if they sell an Italian sausage without fennel seeds? They also sell hot sausages, garlic & cheese, broccoli rabe and the long barbecue sausages. The long barbecue sausages are what the sausage cart vendors sell. The garlic & cheese, broccoli rabe sausages cost more than the Italian sausages. I think that Bianco's also sells a Chinese (sparerib red color) sausage. I saw Bianco's sausages being sold in a store in Portland Maine.

                  2. Struck out on the Bianco's at Wilson, and evidentally S&S in Lexington doesn't carry them. Bummer. I'll have to wait to report...I just grabbed some generic sausages.

                      I think I saw Bianco's sausages at the Stop&Shop in Somerville and the Stop&Shop on Squire Road (Rte 60) in Revere. You might want to try another Stop&Shop store.
                      Note: Bianco's barbecue (long) sausages have fennel seeds and crushed red pepper flakes. They are a little spicy.

                      1. re: buffet king

                        I bought Bianco's sausages last night for a lasagna I was making at Shaws in the Back Bay. Definitely fennel seeds in there and I'm not complaining!

                    2. I recently had the Sausage Cacciatore at Felicia's in Stoneham. The sausage was sweet & delicious. I asked what sausage the chef uses and was told Bianco's. I definitely want to try this at home.
