I visited the restaurant with my wife and her sister. The restaurant is very well decorated. Wonderful ambiance! The staff is great and all the food amazing. Everything is baked fresh in store from scratch. I highly recommend this place.

The IM is a beautiful one stop shop for all your Italian needs! The desserts are devine but the prepared food can be a hit or miss at times. My go to's are the chicken parm sandwich and the caesar salad. I've had the spaghetti...More

On a whim, we stopped in here for lunch. I enjoyed the store/deli/restaurant atmosphere. I ordered a panini and salad; the paining was fair and the pasta salad was very dry. My husband ordered the stromboli and he was pleased with his. The young man...More

I love this place, thinking of it as a take-out deli, where you can also eat in. The salads are always fresh: Greek, Waldorf, caprese. The mains are delicious: theee different lasagnas, cannelloni, savoury tortes (e.g., funghi). But the desserts are unfortunately uneven, with cakes...More

I popped in to The Italian Market last week to pick up some delicious tiramisu to share with a friend. I had read about the store's recent "facelift" in the Chronicle Herald and was curious about the new layout. I noted the more spacious, diagonal...More
