In 1993, Little Italy moved to a new purpose-built premises on North King Street which provided a new shopping experience with a greater choice of products for both its retail and wholesale business.
Despite the passing of Anna in 1996 and more recently Sylvester earlier this year, the family spirit remains strong in its tradition and the business is continuing to grow assisted by its e-commerce website.
The Italian community still remain a sizeable part of Little Italy’s customer base and the company regularly sponsors events that highlight this culture, as well as participating in many food-related festivals, including Taste of Dublin, Catex, Love Italian Life and Eatyard.
Today. Little Italy is regarded as Ireland’s leading Italian food and wine importer servicing hotels, cafés, restaurants, delicatessens and gourmet shops, as well as the general public through its Smithfield-based retail shop and online offering and regularly host in store events and tastings.
True to their heritage and tradition, Bettina and Marisa are following their mother’s vision for the business and so Little Italy continues to develop always remembering where it came from and its purpose.
