Domenico Bruzzese grew up surrounded by the finest Italian foods in Vancouver. Born and raised in the southern provinces of Italy, Domenico’s father, Fortunato Bruzzese, brought with him to Canada a love and respect for the foods of his home country.

Fortunato first immigrated to Montreal in 1963, and in 1976 he moved to Vancouver with his young family. In 1977, he opened La Grotta Del Formaggio, a small Italian deli filled with the best ingredients Italy has to offer. It is here where Domenico learned to appreciate food, and the deli became his second home. La Grotta Del Formaggio is situated in the heart of Vancouver’s ‘Little Italy’ and remains there to this day, supplying Vancouverites with high-quality foods from across the Mediterranean.
