      Ditto Pasta and Provisions. You may also try Ferrucci's if you are north and I also think there is an Italian butcher in Waxsaw (south) but I cannot remember the details. Another thought would be to call Dean and DeLuca.

          The Italian butcher, What's Your Beef, is no longer in Waxhaw. They relocated to the Ballantyne area - in the space formerly occupied by Jersey Girl Bakery (near Five Guys). However, he would not carry tuna packed in olive oil. He's strictly a beef/pork/chicken kind of butcher - no frills and no speciality item extras.

              I bet expensive but every so often one needs to experience real food. Where is Callipo? I googled and nothing came up.
