Mondo Italiano: This top-notch gourmet store/Italian deli has everything for lusty appetites..
Sprawling, bustling, fluorescent-lit emporium full of imported bread, cheese, salami, dried pasta, arborio rice and dozens of olive oils and fancy vinegars. The sandwich counter sells huge, and hugely satisfying, Italian sandwiches. There's a freezer section if you need prepared pastas, sauces, even dessert (tiramisu) to go.
Granato's selection of pastas, salamis and olive oils is staggering--and mouthwatering. Good thing the sandwiches are nearby. Gargantuan concoctions like the Godfather and the Italian Combo are popular, stuffed with Italian sausages, lettuce, tomato and provolone, and served on a sandwich roll or ciabatta. Don't miss the daily specials: The fresh mozzarella sandwich with salami, lettuce, tomato and basil pesto is rich, creamy, spicy and crunchy, all in the same bite. Then, indulge in la dolce vita: Granato's cannolis are cinnamoned ricotta, wrapped in flaky pastry. There are good buys on grated cheeses like parmigiano-reggiano, romano and asiago.
Try the Italian Combo sandwhich. It is the perfect balance between meat, cheese, and veggie. It has a couple of good types of meat, some good cheese, and lettuce and tomato. All sandwiches are served with a pepperoncini and some good spicy olives. Very nice!
Add a delicious cannoli for dessert.
The Place for Sandwiches in SLC.
I lived in Italy and this is the only place in SLC I can find REAL Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese, as well as other REAL Italian/European cheeses and salamis and meats like prosciutto crudo di Parma.
Try the sandwiches--you'll be glad you did. The Muffulata is very good as well as the Italian Combo. Try the San Francisco Kid with its REAL prosciutto crudo! They serve each sandwich with spicy Greek olives and peperoncini. Stop in--you'll be glad you did! The prices are very fair and the sandwiches are hearty yet light.
