 Shanea Savours: Made in Italy Gourmet (Wynwood)

The brainchild of native Italians Pietro Monelli and Francesco Belcaro, Made in Italy Gourmet is a restaurant, wine bar and retail market with items such as oils, sauces, pasta, and Italian artisanal products. There is also an Italian wine library with over 2,000 bottles in all price ranges. And don’t forget the cheese and cured meat counter. Their motto: Taste, Live, Share. They really follow these ideals. The building, originally a large warehouse, was marvelously transformed into what I can only describe as a scene out of a Tuscan village...

Pictured: The stuffed ravioli was in a sinfully rich and creamy mushroom sauce topped with truffle oil. I need to do a few more sit ups tomorrow.
