Las Vegas Italian Grocery Mystery
You’d think that with all the folks from back east that live in Las Vegas there would be great Italian bakeries and full service markets all over town. Or at least a little “Little Italy”. Sure there are a few modest Italian restaurant/bakery/grocery type combo places dotted around town but for the most part they’re just basic and not very inspiring food shopping. Sadly, Italian bread in Las Vegas generally means a fluffy loaf from a grocery store bakery or overpriced “artisan” breads that really aren’t Italian and barely count as artisan.
Siena Deli on E. Tropicana comes up in conversation most frequently as a Las Vegas destination for Italian grocery staples. Located in a strip plaza on the east side of town, the shop is a combo market/deli/bakery/restaurant offering up a nice selection of Italian specialty items. Worth the trip for a mortadella fix. If only there was a Siena Deli west of the Strip…hint-hint.
