La Villa Delicatessen in Willow Glen opened its doors in 1947. Ann and Frank Giacomelli owned and ran the business for twenty years before selling to Ed and Rita Palestro. Today Dave and Patty Bertucelli own the deli that which is best known for it’s raviolis.
There’s a small sign hanging in front of the store door, but in case you miss it, there’s a larger wall painting on the side of the building.Vintage? The little sign probably is, but the wall painting has been painted over a few times to keep it fresh. And it includes a url for online orders: how vintage can that be?
Rumor has it that La Villa sells about 1000 boxes of raviolis a week and the day or two before Christmas, they sell 1000 boxes a day!
