Cavallaro Fine Foods


First stated in 1981 by Giuseppe Cavallaro, Cavallaro Fine Foods was a modest storefront at Marché de L’Ouest, located in the West Island of Montreal.

The store was started with a commitment to bring fresh local and imported Italian products and ingredients to Montrealers, whose selection might have been limited at the time. Today, Cavallaro Fine Foods has grown to include 4 separate locations, all in the west of Montréal. Their product selection includes; imported specialty pasta, sauces and oils, local and imported deli meats and cheeses and freshly baked bread and pizzas. To this day Cavallaro’s ultimate commitment to provide the perfect Italian gastronomic experience remains the same.

When was the last time you had dinner in an Italian restaurant in Canada and you thought you were dining in Italy? That’s exactly how “Ospitalità Italiana Certified”restaurants want you to feel when you visit their fine dining establishments.

Ospitalità Italiana is an official certification from Unioncamere, Italy’s federation of local Chambers of Commerce and Industry, that tells you that the food you are enjoying is unquestionably Italian: products are authentic, ingredients genuine and recipes true to the thousand year history of Italian cuisine.

Canada is home to some leading Italian Chefs. Passionate and innovative, many have refined their skills and advanced their knowledge directly in Italy. In addition, Montréal boasts a fabulous cooking school ITHQ where young aspiring chefs learn Italian technic and Italian traditional recipes from the masters.

So the next time you make reservations for an Italian dinner in a Montreal restaurant, ask if they’ve received the Ospitalità Italiana seal of approval. You will enjoy the true Italian taste.
