Where to buy 'Salsa di Tartufo' (jarred truffle sauce) in Manhattan?

Anyone know where I can buy this? I'm talking about an Italian jarred product that usually contains some percentage of white or black truffles (perhaps between 5 and 20%), along with porcini mushrooms and olive oil.

      Ran across Sabatino Tartufi a while back on Twitter. They do have an office in NYC so perhaps you can find out where you can buy locally or just order directly from them. http://www.sabatinotartufi.com/index.php

        Don't do it. It will almost surely have that chemically manufactured "truffle" oil in it. Wait until you happen to be in Umbria or Piemonte in truffle season.

          Davy, I am searching for some stuff imported from Italy like the stuff I bought when I was in Italy. The stuff I bought in Italy had only truffles, porcini, olive oil, and salt. Are you saying this stuff is not to be had in NY? That's what I feared.

          Don't get me wrong -- if I lived in a country that made this stuff I wouldn't export it either! But do I really have to go back to Italy to get it? (Not that I'd mind, of course, but the economy and all....)

          Gutsofsteel, I checked out the website of Buon Italia and they show only whole jarred truffles. Have you seen the Salsa there?

            I don't remember specifically, but if anybody has it, it's probably them. They do a brisk truffle business in season. Give them a call.

            Also try these folks (give them a call too):


            You could also try Agata & Valentina and DiPalo's, but I think they're less likely.

              Great, thank you, I will try those places. Failing that, I'll start saving up to go to Italy.

          Try Buon Italia in the Chelsea Market
