Testaccio and Ostiense
The Volpetti brothers have been selling the finest Italian gourmet products since 1973. Hams hang from the ceiling while pastries such as pannetone and crostate crowd the counters. The attentive staff offer samples of salami (such as truffled and Cinta Senese), smoked fish, garnished goat cheeses, and dried figs in invert sugar; bottles of Italian wine, Umbrian olive oil, honey, and mostarda line the shelves. There is also a pizza station as well as a counter with fresh pastas, fritters, breads, desserts, and plates-to-go.
