It all began in 2012
Originale was created after more than two years of work and experience in a typical Italian store in Anchorage, Alaska. Thanks to all our loyal friends and customers and their love of real Italian food, we are bringing you a selection of first quality Italian specialties, home style baked goods and deli items.
Each dish is prepared by hand by our Chef Roseli Anzilotti, whose knowledge of European and South American foodways allows her to prepare dishes that are unmatched and unavailable outside our business. She specializes in sweet and savory Italian dishes, using a pinch of patience, a dash of kindness, and a spoonful of laughter. Her traditional recipes are of the highest quality and she prepares them with the finest Italian ingredients.
Sergio has mastered the art of customer service, and enjoys sharing the fine foods of his home region of Tuscany. Through carefully cultivated relationships to suppliers in Italy, he is able to provide high quality food items imported directly from Italy. His knowledge of the range of fine cheeses, pastas, oils and other specialties available in the store allows him to find just the right item for your dinner, party or picnic.
We would like to extend a thank you to everyone that helped make it possible for us to return in our new space, whether your assistance took the form of material support, a shoulder to cry on, a kind word, or even your positive thoughts. We owe our success to you.
