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.

  1. Try Buon Italia in the Chelsea Market

    1. 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.

      2. 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.


          I am in cortona Italy as I write this. This shop sells it and ships world wide! I will be bringing some back with me!!!
