    Cioffi's on E hastings is good - they have deli, grocery and a butcher shop - separate store two doors away from their grocery store.

      The Ravioli store on Commercial is great.

      Check out Bosa for Italian products.

        The Ravioli store on Commercial is called "First Ravioli" in case you need to look it up. Bosa over near Boundary Rd is a large Italian supermarket - excellent for all things cheese, salumi and pasta (and more)...

            And I second the Ravioli store. Best selection anywhere.

            La Grotta Fromaggio has some terrific Italian grocery items as well. Just down the block on Commerical.

              Is that Bosa affiliated with the Bosa on Victoria Drive?

                I believe so, twinkie. I still haven't made it out to the big one 'cause the little one has everything I need and is so much closer but I need to make a special trip.

                    Do you remember that little butcher on the other corner of the old Bosa's building? That family is now working the meat counter at the new Bosa. I live right in the hood of the old Bosa and still go there for the odd thing (pasta, salumi, etc), but I do a stocking-up trip to the new Bosa every couple of weeks ...the selection for everything is just greater there.
