This unassuming Italian grocery and deli in east Mesa is the creation of Walter Bergamaschi and Marti Printy, owners of the adjoining Gelato Dolce Vita. And it’s the couple’s penchant for premium ingredients that makes their grocery (if you’re shopping) and Northern Italian-based eatery (if you’re dining in) so distinctive. Pick up a boutique olive oil, balsamic vinegar, or marmalade from the Italian Alps, or give into a purchase of rarely seen cheeses and cured meats. If you’re staying for a bite to eat, don’t miss the classic bruschetta, stellar sandwiches such as the Dolomiti made with smoked prosciutto, asiago cheese, and arugula, and housemade ricotta and spinach ravioli drizzled in a silky butter and sage sauce.
