Seeing as how I've lived here more than ten years and only brought home prepped pasta from Bob's Italian Food in Medford tonight, I suppose it's time to give them their own thread. I've read some comments in random threads here and there - curious about those large meatballs I read about.
-BBQ packs where you can get ready-to-grill meat - some marinated - for 15 which sounds like a nice idea.
-full Turkey holiday dinners
-antipasti, cold cut, cheese, crudite, wing, cannoli and Italian cookie trays.
-salad and fruit bowls
-couple, family, or party-size take-home dinners (lasagna, stuffed shells)
-a wide of sandwiches of the Boston standard varieties you expect; think "the full range" rather than a selection.
-a variety of soft, rather tasteless Italian-style breads (think scali)
-a slightly larger-than-average variety of imported Italian groceries (a second brand of Nutella, some imported bitter soda, etc.)
-a butcher shop
-a deli case with olives, stuffed peppers, stuffed mushrooms, a lot of stuffed things I don't recognize and MONSTROUS, softball-sized meatballs.
in a storefront that's approximately 500 sq. ft. (ok, kidding on that one).
What's good? What's not-so-much?
