Gastronomia Stella

This is one of the few Gastronomia left in the heart of the town. A Gastronomia is a "heavenly" shop where you can find all sorts of specialties. You may choose olives from Liguria, mozzarelle from Campania, sicilian oregano or cherry tomatoes, tuscan cheeses, cakes from Siena or chocolates from Piemonte, special pasta from Naples, etc.
There are also international gourmet products, like caviar or escargots. Their home made pasta (ravioli, tortellini) is the best (you can see it on the left) as well as all the freshly made fish specialties. And the salumi (ham, salami etc), mmhh, their choice is really top quality!

What about your town's Gastronomia specialties?

No particular specialties, but as a city with people originating in 100s of countries around the world, we have incredible variety!

NYC is filled with gourmet supermarkets but the best small gastronomia is Dean & Deluca in SoHo. It has Italian truffles, Belgian chocolates, etc.

Is b-side = backside? Saretta left a comment about your mention of b-side in my photo.

B-side is such a polite way of referring to the behind.

We use "ass" over here, like "Ohh...check out her ass!"

Not that I would ever say that (out loud), of course. ;-)
