Downtown MTL Has A Huge New 'Authentic Italian Gourmet' Market & It's Cibo Heaven (PHOTOS)
Italimenti's food, desserts and other products, according to founder Joe R. Occhiuto, showcase different culinary regions of Italy.
The store includes an upscale prêt-à-manger counter for 'classic and modern' Italian dishes made to-go, whether for lunch or dinner.
Italimenti's Salumi e Formaggi counter features fine Italian, French and Quebec cheeses — from firm to creamy products — as well as Italian cold cuts sliced upon request.
The store also has a fresh pasta laboratory with over 30 different varieties of pasta, made with both traditional flour and vegetable flours for 'healthier' pasta.
Italimenti is introducing the pizza pinza to Montreal's food scene.
Made from a hand-kneaded crust, the store's special formula uses a small amount of natural yeast and minimal gluten for a light and fluffy dough.
In addition to fresh food, Italimenti has a gift and kitchenware counter, a selection of the finest imported olive oils and balsamic vinegars, pasta and sauce brands, and gluten-free Italian products.
For sweet-toothed-Montrealers, the store's Pane e Dolci bakery offers freshly-baked bread, homemade cannoli, and Neapolitan sfogliatelle.
Its Italian-inspired coffee counter serves Lavazza’s best premium Kafa coffee to wash it all down.
Address: 1063 rue de la Montagne, corner boul. Rene-Levesque, Montreal, Quebec
