But I think a big treat is to go to Viviano's grocery on The Hill. As it says, "The smells are free." It's been there since the late 1940s, the staff is helpful, and the prices on Italian staples are excellent ($9 for a liter bottle of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, for example). It makes its own Italian sausage and pasta. It has a nice deli where you can get ravioli salad and fresh mozzarella for a meal. Its pasta sauce is quite good, and I'm not easily impressed with the premade stuff. Viviano's is a St. Louis institution, even.

It's also online: www.shopviviano.com

I recently stopped at the Fenton location of Viviano's Market (I'm guessing there's a family connection) for a soup-and-sandwich supper, and enjoyed it very much.

 
The market portion isn't that large but there's a nice selection of items.

 
The mushroom-brie soup was delicious!

 
My sandwich choice was half of a muffuletta and it was also very good.  I especially liked that the olive salad wasn't loaded with onions; I think it may have been simply olives, marinated red pepper, and a little garlic.  And the bread was excellent.

He's not like us.  He's from Wisconsin.  But the food looks good!

Joe,
He's not like us.

For which my gratitude is infinite!
 
I'm sure I'll make a few more visits to Viviano's in the future.  The sandwich menu alone is enough to keep me occupied for quite a while!

Well, we would never go for the mushroom-brie soup.  More like pasta e fagiole. 
 
I got kind of sad to see posts on page 1 of this thread from Bushie and Poverty Pete.  Two very dear friends that I miss.
