I live quite far from the store but I visit it just for their excellent varieties of olive oil and pastas. Their Italian sausage is made to order and always freshly made and Mama makes her own spaghetti sauce. I always come out happy that I shopped there.
I really like Gallucci's. We've been going there for years. This dates back to when they were located at the current Progressive Field location. The selection of wine, olive oil, vinegar and italian meats & cheeses is worth the trip. While I like the convenience of going to Costco, nothing beats the freshness that a local company like Gallucci's brings to the area.
Be very careful when you buy prosciutto here. I was told by the deli manager that Ray does not allow them to trim the excess fat off so your product maybe just fat. Inspect the product to make sure it of the quality you expect. Many times I have taken the product home. only to find it is too fatty to serve or the meat is not layered on tissue properly and you can't separate the slices. The bakery is generally very good, but make sure you have the time to wait for service. They people in the bakery move at their speed and have no sense of urgency. The Gallucci brand olive oil is the best for the price. I highly recommend it for dipping.Especially at the price. The peperoncini is mediocre at best. It generally too soft without any crunch. I have found that Bell View is a superior product to what Gallucci carries.In general other than the olive oil Gallucci's is no longer worth the drive. All of products can be found closer to home at about the same pric.e
My grandparents have been taking me to Gallucci's since I was a toddler. I remember going to the location where Progressive Field now sits. They are now located on the new Euclid corridor close to E. 55th St. or use the bat cave entrance off of Carnegie. They have such a great selection of Italian food. Whether you need ingredients for grandma's Italian recipes or want to take it easy and let them do the cooking for you. Gallucci's is the right choice for finding all that you need. Also, there extensive wine collection will complement and add to any dinner or event you are putting together
