May 3, 2019

The team beind Little Italy's RoVino Rotisserie + Wine is in the process of developing San Diego's largest Italian specialty market. Rovino The Foodery is set to unveil this summer on the base floor of Strata Apartments in the East Village, offering an Italian deli and market experiennce complimennted by an inhouse wine bar and Italian restaurant.

From partners Tom Tarantino, Antonia Buono and Vincenzo Bruno - who opened RoVino in summer 2016 on a quiet stretch of Kettner Boulevard in San Diego's Little Italy - The Foodery will be a nearly 5,000 square-foot, one-stop-shop for all things Italian. Upon entering, guests will be greeted by a large Italian deli counter showcasing imported and domestic cheeses and a full bakery that will offer daily baked artisan breads and fresh Neapolitan pizzas. There will also be a specialty market featuring prepared food items, Italian beers and wines, a gelato bar, a full bakery, a coffee bar with freshly brewed Illy coffees, Neapolitan pizzas, fresh pastas, sauces, salads and more. The Foodery will also house a wine bar with an onsite RoVino casual-concept Italian restaurant.

This is not the first all-inclusive Italian deli, market and restaurant to test the waters in San Diego. Both Bottega Americano in East Village and Roma Italian Market in Little Italy attempted such a feat, only to close after a short tenure. 

RoVino The Foodery is expected to open this summer at 969 Market Street in San Diego's East Village. For more information, visit
