Roma Italian Deli

Nov 14, 2011

To celebrate the publication of our sister book EAT: Los Angeles 2012, we’re posting regular listings chosen from the book’s many San Gabriel Valley destinations for food lovers. This one’s about everyone’s favorite salume and cheese vendor, Rosario at Roma Italian Deli.

WHY Excellent Italian prosciutti, cheeses, sausages, salumi and gnocchi, sold with style and lots of sample tastes.

WHAT Roma’s fans are so passionate that they are almost a cult, and their leader is Rosario, who confidently proclaims his sandwiches, prosciutti and cheeses to be the best in the world. We’re not sure about that, but they are damn good. Some swear by the inexpensive produce, but we don’t.
