So my dear momma Rita’s maiden name is “Pagano” aka- Italianoooooo! Both her grandparents grew up in Italy and her parents were both 100 percent Italian, making me 50% Italian and 100% Foodie!! Yep- Italian and proud of it. My grandpa and his brothers had pizza shops all across San Diego while growing up and there are even a few in business still- so fun! So put that all together and this Italian girl has some mad respect for homemade cannoli and some legit calzones. I was super excited to see some of these cravings met as well as some great Italian goods here in our small little SLO town. I grew up hitting up downtown Little Italy in San Diego when we had our basic Italian pantry needs so the atmosphere and smell at Piemonte’s Italian Delicatessen brought me right back to some childhood memories. I was loving all the warm wood cieleing beams too, check out out!!
All your Italian Pantry needs from dried capers to 00 flour for some yummy pizza!
I was drooling over this gorgeous wood cutting island block, oh I bet there were some amazing stories told around this piece. SO much history and age in it, love love love!
Some homemade frozen “on the go” for those last minute dinner nights? Heck yes!
We may have already eaten lunch but we couldn’t resist out sweet tooth’s!
