Question Italian Deli

HELP!!!
Anyone in the Cary-Morrisville area or the Triangle area know of a good Italian deli,like on Arthur Av. in the Bronx,or any place in NYC?You know,with the salamis and the provolones hanging from the ceiling,the home made fresh pasta,etc.The kind of deli where just opening the door and breathing in makes you feel like you're in Grandma's kitchen?
Any info would be appreciated.Love our new place in Morrisville,but there's some things about NYC that never leave your memory or your taste buds.
Also looking for a wine store that actually carries a good Italian Marsala.Chain stores seem to carry only California or NC Marsala.No offense but the stuff is UGLY and of no use for cooking or drinking.
Thanks

You will not find anything of that nature in NC, at least not of the same quality and selection that you would find on Arthur Avenue. Here's a link that may help you. Perhaps you can find a place that delivers all the way to NC. http://www.arthuravenuebronx.com/ (broken link)

And before you ask... no, you won't find comparably good bakeries in NC either; macaroons, cannolis, etc, etc.

Default Italian Deli

I am moving to Heritage Wake Forest soon. There is an Italian pork store opening near there soon. It is still under construction. Hoping it will be good.

There's nothing like a good Italian pork store for an Italian who grew up in Brooklyn. It's all about the food!!!!

Good luck
Tina

We are all waiting with bated breath for their opening. Let's hope they open before Christmas.

Di Nunzio, Whole Foods is as close as you will get around here for the items you need (meats, breads, bakery) but it has that uper west side ambiance rather than the Arthur Avenue one.
A bit closer to home,
Lowes has fresh mozzerella, Haris Teeter has decent meats & good Italian canned & spices & all.

LOL, I had an image of groups of people just waiting to exhale when this store opens

I'll say this, growing up in Miami in the 80s, there was this NY style deli on Miami Beach. My father worked all over the city and the beach, and he would stop by once a month and bring home a brisket sandwich. O-M-G!!. I thought I knew what a sandwich was, but then I tasted THAT sandwich. Every bite was unbelievable. As soon as I was able to drive, friends and I would make the trip from South Miami TO Miami Beach (no short trip) to dine at this deli once a month.

I can empathize somewhat as I don't think I've had a better brisket sandwich since then (that was like 20 years ago).

Thumbs up Conti's Italian Market

Conti's Italian Market in downtown Raleigh is widely regarded as the main place around here to get a very wide variety of Italian food supplies (deli, wine, gelato, spices, and so forth). I highly suggest anyone who's into Italian cooking to try them out!
They're on North Person Street, in the Mordecai neighborhood, about a block or so north of the Krispy Kreme.

Well, it is across the street from the middle school and when I pass there are almost always people standing out there peering in the windows!

The anticipated opening date is quite the hot topic of conversation at nirsery school pickup, too!!!!
You would think we were all starving!

Try Capri Flavors in Cary for a good selection of Italian food. I am not sure if they have the deli cuts there as my wife is the one who always goes there. She is a born and bred Italian and loves that place. We did try Conti's last year and were disappointed with the selection as well as the meats. We get better deli meat at Harris Teeter. The service at Conti's was horrendous as well.

Default Thank you Raleigh Rob

I visited Conti's Italian Market today. It was worth the 20 min. drive. Great store. Many of the authentic Italian foods I remember from Brooklyn, NY. Got good stuff for the Christmas Holiday.

Thanks for the info.

Tina
