Hi,

I'm looking to purchase a whole proscuitto - I have no clue where to go. Ideally closer to downtown - the better. How much would it cost?????

  1. Many will sell one to you, but the point becomes at what cost. The closer you get to the importer/wholesaler the better. Grande Cheese on Orfus road would sell you one at a decent retail price, but I think you can do better. There used to be a place on College west of Bathurst that specialized in Italian preserved meats, but I haven't been there for years. Good luck!

      I believe I saw somewhere advertising on TV a few weeks ago whole San Daniele Prosciutto for $68.99 but I may be wrong. It was a grocery store in Woodbridge I believe.

        Just be careful about whether you are purchasing San Daniele the brand (in which case it is produced in Canada) or San Daniele prosciutto that is imported from Friuli in Italy. Looking at the price, I would assume that they were advertising the Canadian brand, San Daniele.

        Porco Brothers used to have the best proscuitto (salami, sausage etc) in Little Italy but is closed. You might be able to get one at Grace Meats.

      3. In Mississauga, corner of Dixie and Burnhamthorpe, Aurora Meat, Cheese, and Salami makes their own mighty fine proscuitto. They will debone or trim as required.

        1. I enjoyed the Niagara prosciutto that I bought on my first visit to Fiesta Farms last week. The slices I bought were cut from a whole piece so presumably they'd be willing to sell you a whole one but I've no idea what the price of that would be. They have other prosciuttos that are cheaper than the Niagara variety, so may be you'd like to give them a call and see what they have to offer you.

          1. They cure their own at Masellis Supermarket and always have quite a few hanging from the ceiling. I'd check with them.

            1. Another option further up Danforth is Vincenzo. They also make their own and they are delicious. Not sure of the price, but I'm sure a quick phone call would ensure enlightenment.

              1. Pasquale Brothers at Kipling/Queensway always has whole proscuitto (as well as great prices) . Phone ahead to see what they have in stock..

                  1. FYI this was a couple years ago but I did end up going to Grande Cheese on Orfus Road and getting one there - it was about $100.
