New to the Bay Area, looking for good Italian Importer
I recently moved to Napa from the Los Angeles area. I was used to getting my essential Italian food supplies from Guidi Marcello's in Santa Monica. I was hoping someone could recommend a good place to pick up Spinosi pasta, Star mushroom bullion cubes, high-quality aged parmesan, imported olive oil, Balsamusse, Parma, etc all in one spot at reasonable (not AG Ferrari) prices. Any suggestions?
Far West Fungi in the San Francisco Ferry Building just started to sell the Star mushroom bullion cubes. The building has some great products.
Second on Lucca Ravioli.
Zarri's in Albany doesn't have a huge selection, but the prices are great.
I don't know of any great one-stop Italian shop.

Since we've broadened the search from Napa to include SF sources, I'm kinda surprised noone has mentioned Molinari's. I live a lot closer to Lucca's so I basically never go to Molinari's and have no idea if they have what you are looking for. But it is definitely old-school North Beach and worth checking out.
