GIOVANNI'S ITALIAN-AMERICAN DELICATESSAN & PASTRIES had its soft opening yesterday (stay tuned for their Grand Opening in the next few weeks--they'll be set up with credit and debit then, and their pastry production will be in full swing).
We were very pleased to see that they carry a number of artisanal Italian products found only in the city: Susanna's Shortbread fruit cookies in several flavors, Roland's Wine Jellies (including balsamic--try that on a toasted piece of Italian bread on a cold day) and the Don Bruno line of artisanal pastas. We also hear they make an amazing panini. Stay tuned for more. Contact info below.
