Good place to shop for Italian provisions in Venice?

hungry_united | May 25, 2011 10:06 AM

Can anyone recommend a good place to shop for Italian provisions in Venice?
I'm looking for stuff to bring home like miele di castagno (chestnut honey), salsa di noci (jarred nut sauce for pasta), and cantucci alla mandorla (little biscotti) to bring home... Usually I go to Milan, where I know the supermarkets and specialty food stores, but this time I am only going in and out of Venice. Will track down a supermarket of course (if anyone can recommend the best one, I'd appreciate it -- I'm staying in Cannareggio) but was wondering if there's any famous specialty food store like Milan's Peck or Drogheria Radrizzani in Venice? I have found mentions of Drogheria Mascari but can't tell if that's mostly for spices... Any tips would be appreciated!
