Pepe Bocca (Sommerville, MA)
414 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA 02144, T: 617-776-6687
Pepe Bocca is a specialty store that imports and sells foods from Italy and serves Italian food, mostly to go. The selection is amazing, from pastas to sauces, from cookies to breads. One side of the place does pizzas (by the pound) and pastas, the other sandwiches. It is pricey, but not that crazy.
I get the Italian sandwich ($8.95): Mortodella, two different types of salamis, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, hot peppers, and olive oil on a fresh, rich ciabatta. Al meats are imported and freshly sliced. Absolutely delicious and filling.
As good as it gets.
