About Lombardi's Gourmet Foods

The door swings open, the senses come to life; wondrous aromas of the old country, of home-style, traditional cooking, waft about, tempting the senses. Fine cookware, both standard and unusual fare, imported tea, coffee, pasta, and other gourmet items fill the brightly lit room’s shelves.

From the moment you enter the store, it’s evident that this is a special place. At the core of it all is a family tradition for service that stretches from the historic canal town of Fairport, NY, across the ocean to Italy.

The groundwork was laid in Italy in 1930 when Elviro Lombardi, a native of Amalfi, Italy, arrived in the US during the 1950’s, started selling produce from the family’s orchards and vineyards to support his sisters. The Lombardi family offered their local customers a few old-world staples, such as oranges, olives, olive oil, and wine. As always, the emphasis of their products was on quality, unsurpassed selection, and top-notch customer service. Those same values were passed on to his children, who have placed the satisfaction of their patrons above all else since arriving stateside over 35 years ago.

The Lombardi family has provided top-quality old-world products and excellent service for two generations! Our heritage, history, and experience serve to bring you the very best in gourmet foods, gift items, and equipment you need for your kitchen and table.
