Italian markets in Scottsdale/Phoenix

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of a good place to get quality Italian ingredients in Scottsdale or the Phoenix area in general? I really miss the italian markets from the northeast. In particular right now I'm looking for some decent ricotta.

De Falco's Italian Grocery - (480) 990-8660 - 2334 N Scottsdale Rd Ste A133

Guido's Chicago Meat & Deli - (602) 951-0636 - 10893 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ

Sportsman's Fine Wines-Spirits - (602) 955-7730 - 3205 E Camelback Rd, Phoenix, AZ

Cheuvront Wine & Cheese Experience - (602) 307-0022 - 1326 N Central Ave,

The top two seem to be the best Italian markets for Phoenix. If you are just looking for ricotta give the other two a call because they have a good cheese selection

Romanelli's near the corner of 35th Avenue on Dunlap Avenue. It's 3437 W. Dunlap. The moment you walk in the door the smells will take you right back home! It's a typical east coast Italian deli with the meats and cheeses hanging from the ceiling and fresh and plentiful cases of all the Italian specialties. I go there frequently for their family made Italian sausage and my monthly chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano. I'm sure their ricotta is good as well.

There's another Italian deli on Cave Creek Road, around Greenway -- maybe a little north. I've never been there, but a dedicated New York Italian friend swore that it was wonderful. Sorry, I don't know the name!

Former Mesa resident here, now living in Tucson. We used to frequent an Italian grocery/deli/pizzeria called Sanguigni's, located on the SW corner of Power/McKellips. They were going to move soon after we were leaving, but I believe they were planning to stay in Mesa. Don't remember the intersection to which they were planning to move, but I'll bet they're in the phone book. I know you're looking for a place in Scottsdale or Phoenix, but I guarantee that they're worth the drive over, if you have the time. Fresh pasta, amazing Italian pastries and cookies, and a terrific wine section. Sanguigni's is one of the things we miss most about the East Valley.


In vino veritas.

On second thought, it may have been the SW corner of Power/Macdowell. I honestly don't remember - but it was just south of the Home Depot in that part of town. Either way, check out your east valley phone book.

      I'll be in Naples for a few days next month and I wanted to try something traditional, and my friend recommended trying parmigiana. She said she loved it, but the problem is that she ate it at her Italian friend's house, and I won't be able to have that exact parmigiana. So, I did some research online and found a few restaurants that have good ratings and are serving allegedly great eggplant casserole. This place is 4 stars rated, but people seem not to agree whether the parmigiana is good or not.... On the other hand, this place has a great rating, appears when searching for the parmigiana, but nobody seems to write about it in their reviews. Finally, this one is said to have the best parmigiana in Naples (or in the world, for that matter), and I wanted to know if anyone had the so-called world's best?
      I would really appreciate if you could help me make the decision. Looking forward to your advice!

      I recently took a trip to Northern Italy, and was delighted to find that the cappuccino everywhere was just wonderful, without exception. Smooth, flavorful, aromatic perfect crema, strong but not too strong.
      Aside from the obvious answer (duh, Italians created cappuccino ), what makes Italian capp so fantastic, and how do I duplicate the effect here?
      I'm wondering if it's the water, the way the coffee is ground or stored, the machines used....I'm baffled.
      Also noticed that the serving size tended to be smaller than what I'm used to -- i.e. a small teacupful vs. a brimming mug or Starbucks supersize. Not sure why that is either.
      Grazie mille for any insight on this!

You can read more about our next book Modernist Pizza here. Thanks in advance, everyone!

      My article was published (my first one!)! Hooray! And I do have some Florentine restaurant recommendations including the new Osteria del Pavone which is amazing--lampredotto ravioli is now a thing and it must be tried.
