Mazzaro Italian Market
Mazzaro Italian Market has everything you need to create outstanding cuisine at home, or for catered office or dinner parties that include selections of fresh deli meats and seafood, tasty bakery items, imported cheese, an extensive wine selection and freshly made pasta. Stop by for lunch for hot or cold sandwiches, homemade soup and specialty salads fresh from the deli. Mazzaro is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of freshly roasted coffee featuring Colombian, Ethiopian, Mexican and Mazzaro's own blend, or a cappuccino or latte at the coffee bar along with an order of warm biscotti.
I agree with the first writer, Mazzaro has great products but the staff needs some training in customer service, they barely look at you, don't greet you or ask if you need any help. Maybe I am too used to shop at Publix where everyone genuinely or not will try to help you and greet you.
I love that they have wine and cheese tasting during the lunch hour, there are always so many selections, wonderful people to chat with at the coffee bar, and you must have a bowl of the wedding soup. They even have plenty of parking. The only thing I don't like is that it closes at 6 pm. I would love to eat there for supper also.
Certainly, the Italian food here is AMAZING and incredibly diverse. Each week becomes a culinary adventure, including goat cheese and fig ravioli (made fresh throughout the day), sun-dried tomato lasagna, Gorgonzola cream sauce and outstanding tiramisu. Don’t miss the seared ahi tuna, aged steaks and home-made sausages. Mazzaro’s makes all of their entrées, pasta, pastry and pizza from scratch and they are astoundingly affordable, heck often a better deal than the local super-giant grocery store!
Find the perfect wine to compliment your meal in their incredibly wine gallery, with two awesome guides to help you through the domestic and global options. The cheese counter gladly provides a sample taste of that cheese you did not know existed.
Still, the true beauty of Mazzaro’s is the community it provides in a city where native Floridians seem the exception. Sitting at the coffee bar counter (they roast their own coffee in house), enjoy fabulous bread or pastry baked in the massive wood-fired ovens, and meet your neighbor. Young couples, WW II vets, individuals and families begin conversations about this delight you discovered here or that amazing pasta, and then branch into local news, podcasts, the weather and life stories.
Every visitor I bring here leaves stunned that such an eclectic, diverse and utterly European market in Tampa Bay. It’s the best kept secret in Florida.
This is a must see if you love Italian food, Deli style sandwiches,etc. Wonderful desserts that emulate what can be found @ carmines in Little Italy, NY. rows of imported items, wine selection, great sandwiches and an coffee/expresso bar. I've been hooked and try to take everyone i know there.
There is a nice outdoor area to have lunch after ordering a sandwich from the deli.
Went there for the first time 2 months ago and I go back weekly. Incredible offering of fresh, gourmet foods. Vast selection of prime cuts of beef, all sorts of seafood including shellfish and tuna, plus so much more. If you are preparing a high end dinner and want a great selection of wines, coffees, appetizers, cheeses, desserts, breads, vegetables, meats, or even side dishes, do yourself a favor and visit this store. I normally dislike going to a grocery store and just want to get in and out, but I literally enjoy being in this store and spending money.
this is an amazing store.....if you are within 50 miles, make the trip....the food is beyond....music (live) people laughing, coffeies, bakery, and bread to die for. Just a marvelous place to drop $50 without effort but worth it...
Food critics rave for its sophisticated chef and award winning wines. Opened as a spritzier version of St. Petersburg favorite
