Give Great Gifts: Gargano Pasta & Italian Market, Old Saybrook


If you’ve been pigging out on Gargano’s Rigatoni Bolognese and Misticanza Salad, believe me, you’re not alone. We are smitten with the place; for lunch, takeout, fresh pasta, and pastries. This time of year, it’s also great for gifting. Who wouldn’t want a basket filled to the brim with truffle oil, salted anchovy sauce, Italian specialty canned tuna, fancy vinegar, all manner of olive oil, a vat of olives, and Gargano’s own pasta? Me, for one! Also, check out their holiday menu right here, and sign up for January cooking classes (or a gift certificate!).

75 Main Street, Old Saybrook
