Relatively Wordless Part:
- Formerly a health store called Muscle Madness before the Preston Street “Rehabilitation”…
- Presently, an Italian cafe, called Sanguiccio, owned and operated by friendly Genio Ienzi.
- Open a year…
- Just a hot plate, a toaster oven, and lots of love!
- Sandwich meats (many sourced from nearby Luciano’s, 106 Preston Street) are sliced to order, so freshest (including mortadella!)
- Cheese is sliced to order, so freshest.
- In-house chili condiment, made with air dried chilis
- Preserved artichoke hearts, lightly pickled peppers, and green olives antipasti from local producer.
- Recommended specials during my visit: tuna, smoked meat, beef spezzatino, turkey cooked in a cream sauce with butter and brandy.
- Web-presence (including Twitter-based Daily Specials and Facebook) by sister of owner.
Update: Yes, the bread used by Genio for Sanguiccio’s sandwiches is sourced from the Art-Is-In bakery. On that note, owner/baker Kevin Mathieson announced his bakery’s new retail storefront, located at 250 City Center Avenue (bay 112-114, from Scott road), will be open Friday, December 17, 2010 from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
