From the Press
“Andreoli is the kind of restaurant that makes Italians a little less homesick. This authentic Italian market not only sells imported goods — they make their own takes on international classics in-house.”
“The term 'authentic' is habitually misused, but one could argue Giovanni Scorzo's seven-year-old slice of Italy is the embodiment of the word. A taste of Italy straight from the source.”
“An impressive selection of breads, cheeses, salami, sausage — even desserts, including the chocolates - are house-made, laying the groundwork for exceptional menu items and must-try daily specials.”
“It's impossible not to fall in love with the setting, a European deli meets antique salon, chock-a-block with rustic furniture and pretty packages of imported pasta, lentils, farina and olive oil winking from hutch shelves.”
“If you want a real piece of old-school Italy, you come to this place. The grocery store is an Italian cook’s dream: good olive oil, pasta, salumi, and all kinds of hard-to-find imported goods, not to mention an assortment of homemade cheeses, breads, pastries and desserts.”
