Eating the World: Niccoli's Italian Grocery - Deli
The best ethnic food is often the most difficult to find. So each week we'll spin the globe and search for a new other-worldly spot to expand our eating horizons around the Valley.
This week we go to Italy at Niccoli's.
Inside Niccoli's Italian market, bakery and deli.
Authenticity-rating: Italian dining didn't necessarily feel like a dining adventure...until I stepped into Niccoli's Italian Grocery - Deli. The small strip-mall restaurant/bakery/market is filled with canned, bottled and packaged Italian foods and cases of fresh meats, cheeses and breads. Hand-written posters note fresh pasta prices and available seafood (cleaned squid?). What's available is what they've just made.
The bread is fresh. The meats are fresh.
Read what to eat after the jump.
Italian Beef sandwich with beef, onions, mushrooms, and giardiniera (relish).
Sweet and spicy sausages are made every Monday at Niccoli's.
