To judge from its proximity to the longlived Petrillo's Pizza (833 East Valley, San Gabriel), Claro's Italian Market may have served a lively Italian neighborhood when it was first opened in 1948. It's an excellent old-fashioned store, with pastries, wines, farina di polenta, dry pasta, mushrooms, canned tomatoes, kitchen tools and so on.
