A Family Owned And Operated Italian Deli And Market.
A Taste of Italy was founded in 1994 by brothers Tommy and Chris Guarino. Born and raised in New York, they came to Wilmington, NC, to open an Italian market that would bring the taste of traditional New York Italian delicatessens to Coastal North Carolina. The Guarino Brothers, started by using original recipes that were passed down from generation-to-generation, shared with them by their mother. A Taste of Italy captures an authentic Italian taste that has earned them the title of "No.1 Deli in the Port City".
