Polpetti Market & Catering has been a dream almost a century in the making.
Peter's rich family history and Italian heritage spans the globe from Puglia, Sicily and Calabria to Brooklyn and has now taken root here in Richmond, VA.
The Riccobono tradition of fine Italian foods began when their great grandfather Portobello immigrated from Puglia and opened his restaurant El Dorado on West 37th Street in New York City with the $12,000 he saved to make his dream come true.
"Polpetti is one of the greatest Italian markets in Virginia. They perfectly mix quality ingredients with their lengthy experience in the restaurant industry. Their sandwiches are out of this world.
