Salumeria to open in North Beach

Our friend, North Beach tour guide, event organizer and man-about-the-little-city Gianni tells us he spoke to Giovanni Zocca just the other day and learned he will open a salumeria next door to Trattoria Pinnochio at 658 Vallejo Street. Opening date, with any luck, within the next two weeks. Zocca is putting the finishing touches in place now and workers are often seen in front or behind the windows covered with Giovanni's house made graffiti.

Zocca says that he will feature panini and other prepared foods not otherwise available in North Beach, perhaps in hopes of giving nearby local Molinari Delicatessen a run for the money. He also claims he will stock carefully selected Italian imports that are hard if not impossible to find in the States. Zocca is the owner of Trattoria Pinnochio and Trattoria Volare and like Gianni, a fixture in the neighborhood.
