Rediscover Our Expanded Location!

Celebrating OVER 40 award winning years in Stoney Creek

A Stoney Creek Favourite
Since 1977
Since 1977, Nardini has kept stomachs full and mouths watering with their famous store-made Italian grocery items. However, if you haven’t visited us for a while, you’re sure to notice and appreciate our improved location. Today Nardini offers a wide array of fresh meats, cheeses, a hot table, a full-service deli, and freshly baked bread delivered daily. Don’t forget about our convenient catering services.
Making Everyone Feel Welcome

With a newly expanded 5,500-square-foot location, the selection is better than ever. However, with over 40 years in business, the friendly, personal service continues to set Nardini apart from the rest.

Grocery manager Carlo Gambale recalls visiting the store as a child, when, “we could always count on a lollipop and a smile.” Today, as a member of Nardini’s dedicated staff, Carlo helps every customer feel at home with product samplings and freshly brewed Italian espresso that customers are able to try before they buy.

“From the kids to the parents, we try to make everyone feel very welcome,” says Carlo.

Stoney Creek is embracing Nardini’s new, centrally located store at 184 Highway 8, in the Gateshead Plaza. The sparkling new location is nearly double the size of Nardini’s original store, featuring all the old favourites as well as some great new additions!

Meat, Deli, Cheese & Grocery

In addition to a full meat counter, Nardini features a complete deli section, cheeses, olives, fresh Italian sausage and a newly expanded selection of Italian grocery items. The store’s hot table is especially popular for lunch, with Italian specialties like the veal parmigiana sandwich, sausage and porchetta. Nardini’s store-made porchetta is perfect for a family dinner or as the main course for your next party. More and more customers are discovering the new and improved Nardini experience.

“We’ve had an absolutely amazing response,” says Carlo. “We couldn’t thank the community more.”

The Highest Quality Products

When only the best will do, visit Nardini for fine Italian espressos, biscotti and an outstanding selection of award-winning estate olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and truffle products. We now carry our top quality Nardini brand items, chosen by us to be the best – from our family to yours.

Nardini Black Label Products

Nardini still offers the highest quality meats and some of the best pure pork, gluten-free Italian sausage you’ll find anywhere.

“We don’t compromise on the quality of our meat,” says co-owner Mario DeFelice. “Our sausage is pure pork, and that’s one of our biggest sellers.”

Gluten-Free Products Available

The new store features attractive displays and a modern layout. Capitalizing on the added space, Nardini has expanded its gluten-free products and Italian specialty items, including balsamic vinegars and award-winning estate olive oils.

“The gluten-free is definitely an area that we expanded on,” says Carlo. Gluten-free products include pastas, sauces, cookies, snacks, breads and frozen items.

An Emphasis on Quality Food & Quality Service

Nardini Specialties is open six day a week for your shopping convenience. Along with great customer service, Nardini has many longtime staff members who know their customers by name.

Mario DeFelice and his staff have continued the business since the early 1990s. Mario still enjoys playing a hands-on role when it comes to serving customers.

Gift Baskets
Gifts for Every Occasion

Gift baskets are one of the fastest growing areas of the business today. Selections can be custom or ready-made in any price range. Especially popular at Christmas, Nardini’s newly expanded store has allowed the gift baskets to thrive on a year-round basis.

Thoughtfully filled baskets feature gourmet foods, treats, oils, vinegars or snack foods, depending on your taste. A personalized food gift basket makes a great Christmas gift and are also popular for funerals, employee appreciation, birthdays or for sharing at the office. Baskets can be tailored to suit any recipient and budget.

Gift certificates are also available for that hard to buy for person.
