Trina and Damian Mandola know the ins and outs of the restaurant industry, and they have applied all of their specialized knowledge to making a chain of inviting Italian groceries that Austinites cannot get enough of. The grocery features hard-to-find Italian dry goods and an impressive selection of breads, meats, cheeses, olives and oils that are perfect for catering. But if you're here for a meal, you'll be rewarded with a menu full of big Italian favorites. The portions are huge, so you get what you pay for--but make sure you know what you're ordering. The pasta is made all on-site, so you know the gnocchi, lasagna and spaghetti is always fresh. Topped with savory sauces and meats, you'll be full in no time. Afterward, peruse their coffee and dessert case for cannolis, cookies and cheesecake: the perfect ending to this Italian experience.
