Are you a big fan of Italian food? Then you can’t go wrong here and you must visit Mercato Italiano when you come to Madrid. It is a fantastic deli, supermarket and bakery.
At the deli area you will find your traditional meats, charcuterie and cheese; they also make a few different pizzas ‘al taglio’ and 2 or 3 dishes every day to eat there or take away. If you prefer, you can make your own board with products from their cheese and charcuterie section.
At the supermarket area you will find the finest products from Italy: pasta, wine, beer, sauces, preserves and many other things. Ask them if you plan to cook something at home but you are not sure about what or how to make it, some of them are cooks and they will love to help.
They open from early morning in case you want to have a gorgeous sandwich with a good quality coffee for breakfast instead of the usual coffee, and pastry or toast.
