Missing Letters A2

Have you been wondering what has happened to our sign? After a visit above the door to the original Ratto’s sign, we realized it needed some love. It is now being artfully restored to its classic, original state by a local carpenter, and we will be testing colors shortly. Here’s the A for the paint test. They just don’t make fonts like they used to, eh?


Oscar is here with free tastings of Calabrese sheep’s milk cheese, local nitrate-free salami, olive oils, and Panettone. Easter- we can’t believe it’s coming, either. We’ve got Panettone on sale for $8.99. Come n Get it!

Panettone makes a great gift: it's a snack, dessert, or foundation for French Toast and Bread Pudding!

We visited our newest Popuphood neighbors, The Floracultural Society, and they told us about their fun Valentines Pop-Up, this Wednesday February 12, from 4-7 pm. Pick up your Ratto’s Valentines groceries, then join them for some shopping. We heart our neighborhood!
