Profile

More than a one-cheese wonder, this shop is a maestro of "pasta filata" (the family of stretch-curd cheeses such as mozzarella and provolone) as well as a purveyor of hard cheeses and other Italian essentials. Casa does right by its specialty with a sweet, refreshing mozzarella, sold alone or rolled up with prosciutto, as well as a pungent, tangy smoked version of the namesake cheese that's among the best in town. House ricotta is dense and creamy, and imported Italian cheeses are available as well, such as a pecorino, Parmigiano-Reggiano and smooth taleggio. The wide range of prepared ingredients offers a complete antipasto: fat green Cerignola olives, pale, shredded eggplant swimming in oil and vinegar; grilled and marinated zucchini, seasoned artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers. Packaged pastas, canned and jarred vegetables, tomato sauces and breads from Addeo Bakery complete the selection.
