In the Rome episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy tastes local specialties at a mouth-watering deli.
You’ve never seen a deli quite like Volpetti. The alimentari at Via Marmorata, 47 in Testaccio was founded more than 40 years ago. Alessandro Volpetti gave Kathy a mouth-watering tour of the meats, cheeses, truffles, olive oils, wines and ready-to-eat foods, all packed into a tight space. (Volpetti is also a stop on The Taste of Testaccio Food Tour run by Eating Italy Food Tours.) This is the perfect place to buy supplies for a picnic lunch and gastronomic gifts for the folks at home. Sit down for a hot meal at Volpetti Piu next door. The pizzeria-tavola calda is open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. For more information, visit: www.volpetti.com
