In June, the owners of Lago di Como Ristorante & Pizzeria opened Tutto Fresco, an Italian deli and small grocery store next door to their Santa Cruz restaurant.

 

In the deli, they make Italian Panini on freshly baked Ciabatta bread. The most popular sandwich is signature Panino Tutto Fresco with roasted turkey, provolone, tomato, and pesto. The seasoned turkey is roasted in-house. Tutto Fresco also sells selected specialty Italian deli meats and cheeses by the pound and a few salads by the pound.

 

The chef also bakes pizza daily, which customers can buy by the slice and take to go.

 

The deli serves Illy Italian coffee and espresso plus pastries—some made onsite, some from local vendors such as Heather’s Patisserie. Tutto Fresco also has grab and go items like parfaits with fresh berries and yogurt, Odwalla juices, fresh seafood, fresh ravioli, chicken, fresh housemade pasta sauces (pesto, Bolognese, marinara and bruschetta), roasted peppers and salads.

 

Groceries that Tutto Fresco sells include dairy (mostly from Clover), produce, spices, baking supplies, jams, and a few Italian imported items like pasta, olive oils, vinegar and biscotti. A few items are gluten-free. The shop also sells barbecue supplies (including charcoal), picnic supplies and firewood.

 

Hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends. Visit Tutto Fresco on Facebook.
