It's more than just food, it's family.
In Italy, food is more than just nourishment. It’s something to be proud of and something to be shared, a family tradition passed down through generations. Whether it’s a chopped caprese salad or cauliflower and pine nut paccheri rigati with anchovies, the Italian chef cooks with traditional ingredients that have been used for many generations in the family or the region where they reside.
In response to the virus, we are no longer offering public seating but our grocery and takeout services remain open.

Traditional Italian Ingredients for Your Kitchen
A full Italian restaurant located just north of the Whitemud on 99th Street in South Edmonton. We proudly serve fresh Italian food every day using ingredients imported from Italy, creating an authentic taste and a one of a kind experience.
We are also a fully stocked independent Italian grocery store. We carry fresh, imported ingredients for any and all your Italian cooking needs. Shelves of tomato sauces, bags of pasta both straight and curlicued, gleaming bottles of olive oils, and a drool-worthy deli selection of cured meets and cheese are but one component of our market. An entire wall of freezers holds the likes of eggplant parmigiana, lasagna, chicken cutlets, and tiramisu. All are hand-made and ready to be cooked at home.

What Our guests say
‘The best service. EVER. Anywhere. The food is soooo good. We love their pastas and Mediterranean salad is heavenly! I not only stop here to get lunch but have also used their catering service on several occassions and the food is always a hit. Freshest fruit platters that are arranged like artwork and everything else is great. They absolutely take care of their customers. They also make a huge effort to know their regulars and interact with all their customers. Love that they make your experience personal.’

‘This place is a hidden gem. The pizzas, sandwiches, and pastas are great. I haven’t had the salads but they look very crisp and fresh. The delicious tiramisus are individually packaged and at an excellent value for the amount you get! The lattes are also very nice. Very clean and friendly place for casual eating. They also have “after dark” hours with some additional menu items in a restaurant-like setting. Fantastic place!’

‘We love the Italian shop! This place is always great for a quick and delicious taste of Italy here in Edmonton. I usually go for one of their grilled sandwiches. The only problem with coming here is you’re tempted to buy up the whole store in the grocery side of this restaurant/grocer.
This is the place to go if you’re looking for Italian meats, pastas, sauces, frozen dishes, and even gelato.’
