Best quality Italian supermarkets?

cakehoover | Jul 8, 2013 01:28 AM

Hi there

We are staying on the Tuscany / Umbria border for a week, near Chiusi, and planning to do some of our own cooking.

There are a few supermarkets nearby - we will use these for basics, to supplement food from local markets.

Can anyone tell me which are the best supermarket chains in Italy for quality and variety?

We're from the UK, where there is a very clear hierarchy of supermarket quality. Basically we're looking for the Italian equivalent of Waitrose or Whole Foods.

There are a number of supermarkets nearby, including Famila, Lidl, Coop and others, but I have no idea how they compare.

Many thanks for any suggestions!
