About Us
Nicastro's Italian Food Emporium is Ottawa's biggest and best store dedicated to Italian and gourmet foods.


The Nicastro Family in Ottawa
It all started in 1972 when the Nicastro brothers opened their first store on Gladstone Avenue in little Italy. This store at first catered to Italian immigrant families in the area, but soon grew in popularity and became Ottawa's favourite Italian grocer.
