Antica Italia Balsamic Vinegar 5 Liter containers are once again available!  Hooray!  The container arrived from Italy!  The snow delays on the east coast prevented scheduled arrival in our Chicago warehouse & we are sooooo happy that shipment has recently been delivered.  In a couple weeks more sizes will be available when another shipment is delivered to us & then to you.

Keep checking for the sizes you want.  Antica Italia Balsamic Vinegar & Antica Italia EVOO are two of our most popular sellers.  Tasty, versatile, practical....our favorites in the Formato households.





Still available as a Shipping Included Special.

Still reasonably priced. From the column on the left click on Shipping Included Specials to place your order.

Click on Shipping Included Specials at the top left of this Home Page for many selections. 



We are pleased to announce that free shipping is available for certain combinations of products on UPS Ground shipments made within the contiguous US. 

Due to the bulk & weight of our San Pelegrino & San Benedetto beverages these items are excluded from this offer.  Additionally, large case orders of can or jar products will be excluded from this offer.  Large case orders are 12 items or more.  We hope that our customers see the tremendous benefit with free shipping & can find a way to make larger purchases in order to achieve these savings.

This offer does not apply to shipments of meat & cheese which require 2 day expedited or overnight delivery, especially during the warm months & into usually warm climates.  Also, this offer does not apply to shipments of 8.8 lb and 10 lb pails of olives.
