Imported Specialty Foods

Cooking great food is easy, as long as you have the right ingredients. At Nicastro's we pride ourselves with having one of the best selections of Italian and other Gourmet foods in Canada. Here is only a sample of some of the fine imported specialty foods you will find. You must visit our store to appreciate the vast assortment of products available.


Fine Olive Oils

Olive oil is an edible fat which can be extracted from the fruit of the olive tree. It is a thick liquid with a distinct taste and smell and a colour which varies from pale straw yellow to dark green.

We guarantee you will find the best selection of Olive Oil at Nicastro's. We sell over 150 varieties and import many ourselves. The majority of olive oils we sell are Extra Virgin Olive Oils. This is a virgin olive with an acidity level of less than 1 %. It is usually processed from the first pressing of healthy olives and is most valued for its organoleptic and dietetic characteristics. The quality of the other olive oils decreases as does their selling price.

We are the exclusive North American importer of Antico Frantoio Ravagni Tuscan Estate Olive Oils. This high end oil is available in limited quantity and has received rave reviews for many food critics and chefs. It has become Nicastro's best selling estate olive oil.

Some of the major brands we sell include: Antico Frantoio Ravangi(Tuscan), Olio Carli, Colavita, Bertolli, Sita, Saso, Carapelli, Monini, Nicastro, and Horio just to name a few.



Balsamic Vinegars

Balsamic Vinegar originated in the city of Modena, Italy and is obtained through a long, slow process of transformation starting from the concentrated grape must. It is mainly used to flavour fresh salads and boiled vegetables, together with olive oil, a combination which creates pleasant and appetizing tastes.

The most expensive Balsamic Vinegar is usually the one which has undergone the longest ageing process according to the trational method. At Nicastro's you will find both the "Extra Vecchio" aged at least 25 years and the "Vecchio" aged 12 years, both with Protection Concortia emblem guaranteeing authenticity.

We carry approximately 100 brands of Balsamic Vinegar starting at $1.99 to $249.99 a bottle.

Some of the more popular brands include Fini, Bellei, DeNegris, Elsa and Nicastro to name a few.
