I think Gallucci's is slipping. The Prosciutto di Parma is far too fatty. It appears that they no longer trim up the ham before slicing. The bakery is good but the counter help gives you the attitude that they are too busy to help you.I'm presently looking for another bakery and deli.
It's like being hugged by your grandmother and finding yourself in the bosom of some fine Italian food. OR "Make sure my sauce doesn't boil over I gotta get same canolli's.". Is that Andre' Boccelli looking at the Capicollo ? Unless you lived near the Central Market in the early thirties, or your shoes are still wet from the boat passage you will not be able to make heads or tales of half the products in this store. Lucky for you a helpful and informed staff is there to take you through this Italian adventure. The cheese hanging behind the deli counter giving way to the pepperoni bread may begin your hands shaking. But the trays of olives and artichoke hearts will send you across the Mediterranean. Even the smell of fresh Italian herbs and spices have been know to make Bishop Anthony Pilla smile. Better loosen your belt Tony. Since 1912 when Mama Gallucci first placed her meatballs into a fresh bun and topped it off with her homemade sauce Clevelanders have been lining up to tip those lunchtime scales. Weekdays Gallucci's offers up a huge hot food selection. While you are there why not travel over to the cookie counter and pick up some fresh sweets for that "Amore." in your life. Hot food served weekdays from 11:00 to 2:00 Sandwiches served Weekdays 9:00 to 3:00 Gallucci's caters any function.
