This is the entire shop ... 

 

... but it's packed!  A big counter, 3 clerks, and delicious things stacked floor to ceiling

 

It isn't self-service - you tell them what you want, and they collect it for you.  (See the prosciutto hanging?)

 

If you order sausage like I did, they wrap them

 

Fresh soft pasta made that morning, including the local specialty in front, tortelli

 

The produce section, brought in each day.  All local.

 

Fresh breads of every kind

 

Dried pasta

 

 

Sausages and meats of every kind, most produced within 50 kilometers of the shop

 

Limoncello, basalmic vinegar

 

For the top shelf, they bring a ladder

 

Homemade ragu, pesto, veal 'tonnato', olives

 

Frutti di mare (fruit of the sea), anchovies soaking in green onions and olive oil

 

A two-feet high jar of dried porcini mushrooms from the surrounding hills, sold by weight

 

Baccala (dried salt cod), used to make a local specialty

 

Fresh torts, a sack of coffee

 

 

Italian cheeses

 

Shelves and shelves of wine - very reasonable priced

 

Jars of black and white truffles (17euros), and also honey with truffles, which you eat on pecorino cheese (warning: this causes uncontrollable moaning)

 

Thanks for joining me !!! James
