Hi, my name is Vincenzo! I moved to San Diego, California from Italy four years ago in 2016. Like many people who leave their home country, one of the things that I missed most was the food. Even with the great restaurants and markets that I came across, there was still so much missing in terms of the authentic Italian products that I craved.
My wife and I decided to start bringing a few of our favorite foods back to San Diego with us after our trips to Italy, but we were always left wanting more! Then I got to thinking: I am not the only person in search of these products. Whether you are a fellow Italian who misses the taste of home, or a fellow lover of Italian-cuisine, I have created Pinocchio’s Pantry, an online Italian grocery store, to help make getting authentic Italian food straight to your door easier than ever before.
