I have been wanting to write about this place for days. It is a wonderful salumeria--a shop that sells cured meats, olives, cheeses, wine, vinegars, and other yummy things. I was very taken by the can of tuna in the center of this picture--it was large and the tuna looked beautiful. The shop is on the east side of Piazza Erbe, on Via Sant'Anastasia, 39. It would be the ideal place to buy a complete party, or a picnic, or whatever excuse you might be able to conjure up. The proprietor, Signor Albertini, is a friendly, rather elegant gentleman who is happy to help lovers of good food. Worth many repeat visits--which I intend to make!
