When walking around our store, you might notice a unique brand with a beautiful black and white image on it… that would be our private label, La Bella Romana!
La Bella Romana translates to “The Beautiful Romana.” The name of our private label was created by Angelo Caputo as a way to honor his wife and our matriarch, Romana Caputo. The image on our label is Romana herself. The photo was taken by Angelo while they were honeymooning in Venice in the 1950s.
The brand was created in 1984 and the first product was every Italian household’s staple item, canned tomatoes! The product line began to slowly grow as we imported more products proudly boasting the La Bella Romana name! The private label now includes bakery items, deli meats, catering and prepared foods, grocery products, and more.
Here are 6 La Bella Romana Must Tries!
Made in-house by our bakery team and available in different sizes and shapes, our tomato focaccia is one of our favorites! We make our own dough and use our own seasonings! Focaccia is great to eat on its own, as bread for a sandwich, and even as a burger bun!
One of our favorite snacks is our La Bella Romana Taralli. They are imported from Italy and come in many different varieties! Rosemary and potatoes, olive oil, paprika, and many more. Taralli are a cracker like snack. They are great with cheese, wine, and more!
La Bella Romana pesto is so versatile and authentic! It is great as a sauce, bread dip, and more! It is creamy and bold with flavor!
A Chicago classic and a great way add a little flavor to our meals with some of our hot or mild pepper mix. If you haven’t tried our giardiniera relish yet, we highly recommend it! This chopped up mix can take your dish to the next level. It is small enough to get a bit of giardiniera in every bite without it being overpowering!
