Old Town Italy is an authentic Italian restaurant and market where foodies can shop, talk, eat and learn. They were founded in 2014. With 4 current stores nationally, they are set to become a household name. Most recently, opening in Melrose Arch.
Old Town Italy evokes a sense of history and a portal back to a time when life itself was defined by a seemingly more romantic set of values. Romantic values based on a simpler, slower and ‘better quality’ life. At Old Town Italy these values, as old fashion as they may be, still stand. Their mission is to restore these qualities and rekindle those experiences.
The menu offers breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and most importantly, dessert! Look forward to authentic Italian cuisine including wood-fired pizza, pasta, gelato, baked goods and cheese and charcuterie platters. Meals can be paired with a local or an Italian beverage.
Besides the restaurant, Old Town Italy takes pride to preserve traditional and regional cuisine that supports local farmers and artisans of the food trade. Their market has a deli, a butcher, which boosts local grass-fed meat, a cheese counter, a selection of freshly baked, artisanal loaves of bread from the bakery and an Italian wine and grappa selection. Homeware and retail can be found in the market place too.
