Tour of Italy at Piazza De Nardi

Join us at La Grotta better known as Piazza De Nardi for the very best specialty food and wine selection in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As you walk through the door you are welcomed by the aromas of home style baked bread, freshly brewed coffee or a batch of our authentic home-made pasta sauce. Sit and enjoy our fabulous atrium with a shot of espresso and biscotti before you set off on your shopping experience.

As you browse our various departments you may want to order a freshly baked pizza or panzerotti from our wood-fired oven or perhaps a delicious gourmet lunch from our hot table known in Italy as Tavola Calda. Choose from menu items like cheesy lasagna, chicken cacciatore, pasta and meatballs, Hungarian goulash and many more daily feature items.

Moving on you will encounter our gourmet party table. More often than not, the most time consuming part of entertaining at home is selecting and creating the first course. Don’t fret, pickup up a selection of delicious salads, arancini, devilled eggs, antipasto, and grilled vegetables.

For a real show-stopper, create your own extravagant charcuterie board. We have more than 300 varieties of cheese like Manitoba Trappist, Manchego, Burrata, Parmesan and Blue d’Elizabeth to name a few. Whether you want hard, soft ripened, washed rind or blue cheese, we are sure to have just what you are looking for. To complete your charcuterie spread, match your cheese selections with imported Proscuitto, Jambon de Bayonne or Jamon Iberico from our deli along with in-store made olives, jams and preserves.

Our produce is always unique and interesting as we carry a wide variety of the freshest fruits and vegetables. Choose from figs, rapini, persimmon, heirloom tomatoes, locally sourced wild mushrooms and much more as the seasons permit.

Our meat, fish and bakery departments are renowned for their freshness and quality. Fresh fish is flown in weekly, dry aged Sterling beef and some of the most awe inspiring and delicious cakes are only a handful of what is in store for you at Piazza De Nardi.

If you don’t feel like cooking, take home some of our “take and bake” dishes such as lasagna, chicken parmesan and manicotti that will more than satisfy a family of four.

To complete your shopping experience, stop by our wine store La Boutique del Vino where our resident Sommeliers will help you select the perfect wine to complete your meal. Whether for a special occasion or a weeknight sipper we are sure to help you discover a new favourite.
