      Although their variety is somewhat limited, I love the quality of the products from Cento foods:


      Perhaps the folks at Cento can direct you to a good Italian store that's near you...

      Rao's sells an extremely expensive line of products on-line.

        Have you tried Zingermans? They have a very nice assortment.

              Google Salumeria Italiana Boston - and sign up for their monthly newsletter. I used to live in the neighborhood and still miss shopping there regularly. The owners make frequent buying trips to Italy and are very picky about the quality of their imports.

              My computer is acting up or I'd send you a link.

                  Ditto—used to live in the N. End, miss it enormously, esp. Salumeria Italiana. Sigh.
