Antonio's little slice of Italian heaven
La Bella Italia is another fabulous food store in Wellington’s seaside destination, Petone. Run by the ever popular Antonio Cacace, La Bella Italia is an award winning top shop; it’s an Italian food treasure in New Zealand where you can find quality Italian products, including Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano Reggiano, Mortadella di Bologna and Talegio. Plus so much more.
Trained in the business of hospitality, Antonio is a lover of all things Italian and aside from creating the phenomenon of La Bella Italia, has been active in organising the Italian Festival in New Zealand and working with Nosh in Glen Innes, Auckland to bring La Bella Italia to the north. If you’d like to further the whole Italian food experience beyond the buying of product, enrol in one of his cooking classes and even, if the budget agrees, book onto one of Antonio’s Italian tours to the Amalfi Coast or his hometown of Massa Lubrense.
Antonio’s aim is to offer New Zealanders the food, the passion, the flavours and the history of the Italian lifestyle. Thank you Antonio!
