5 Authentic Italian Food Shops in Dusseldorf

By on May 9th, 2017

Who doesn’t love Italian cuisine? The good thing is that in every corner of Dusseldorf, there are a number of Italian restaurants to choose from!

But when you don’t feel like going out, and really want to have proper Italian food for your fridge, what are the possibilities? Monica and Valeria, owners and chefs at La Cucina Di Casa, have given us their top tips to finding the best Italian food shops in Dusseldorf.

La Cucina Di Casa is a chef-at-home service, where you’ll savor a wonderful tailor made traditional Italian dinner for you and your guests. Want to know where Monica and Valeria shop? 

Here’s a list of just some of their favorite  Italian food shops in Dusseldorf (and beyond).

 

Salumeria Saitta

Where? Barbarossapl. 2, 40545 Düsseldorf

Salumeria Saitta is the jewelry of Italian products in the area of Oberkassel. Both fresh and packed excellence products are offered. Being a delicatessen, the choice is rather limited but extended by homemade convenience meals such as fish salads, fresh canapes, olives, sottoli as well as high-quality cheese and cold cuts (salami, prosciutto, etc.). Burrata and/or stracciatella are also available, but it is recommended to purchase them as close as possible to the day of arrival, to fully enjoy their freshness.

 

Centro

Where? Ackerstraße 105, 40233 Düsseldorf & Nordstraße 28, 40477 Düsseldorf

Both Centro shops have good quality products and a broad choice of gastronomy products. When entering the shop you’ll feel like you’re in Italy. The atmosphere is highly welcoming and informal. Wine choice is super! Mozzarella di bufala is also sold in slices/cuts, and it is possibly the best in town (remember to buy fresh). For those who love spicy food, do not miss the Anduja from Calabria (email us for the recipe of pasta with Anduja alla Maria).

 

Bella Italia

Where? Bilker Allee 74, 40219 Düsseldorf

Entering the Bella Italia shop is a complete throwback to childhood, when one used to go with grandma to buy food in the mini market of the village: generally few products but with a nice selection and quality. Lots of packed products from Italy are available (biscuits, crackers, taralli, etc.) as well as a wide range of (particularly Sicilian) wines. PS. the fresh homemade sausage, wild fennel flavored, generally prepared on Thursdays, is absolutely a must try!

 

Confetti’s

Where? Düsseldorfer Str. 2, 40545 Düsseldorf

Okay, okay, we all know Confetti’s is not a food shop, but when the sun is shining, and temperatures rise, nothing is better than their gelato. Just can’t get enough!

 

Andronaco Grande Mercato Köln

Where? Mathias-Brüggen-Straße 80, 50827 Köln-Ossendorf

Andronaco’s may be outside of Düsseldorf, but if you really want to go all out, it is definitely the best place around for Italian treats with probably the widest possible choice. The delicatessen area offers fresh cold cuts and a variation of cheese, from all of Italy (north to south). The selection of wine is also really assorted, with a complete choice of white/red wine and spirits for all sorts of price ranges. In this supermarket really everything is available: flour for making pizza, a decent array of biscotti (cookies), fresh sausages, dry legumes, olives and sottoli (pickles and more). Around festivities, you can even find typical Italian packed sweets like panettone or colomba.

PS: There is also an online shop and a cafeteria in store! Available also in Ratinger for wholesalers and enterprises.

Im Oktober 2017 ist es soweit -„Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“ kommt wieder auf die Bühne!

Events und Angebote Düsseldorf ist nicht der Veranstalter der hier beschriebenen Veranstaltung, sondern vermittelt lediglich den Zugang zu Tickets.


Michael Jackson gilt als größter Popstar aller Zeiten – und noch nie hat jemand live seine Musik mit Klassik vermengt. Noch nie? Doch: Im Juni 2016 stieg in der Berliner Mercedes-Benz-Arena zum ersten Mal die Show mit dem Titel „Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“. Mit einem Orchester aus 70 Musikern und einem Dutzend Sängern feierte das spektakuläre Event seine Premiere. Rund 4.000 Besucher strömten in die Arena und sahen eine zweistündige Show mit 22 Hits aus der Feder von Michael Jackson – umgesetzt als Mix aus Pop und Klassik. Mit dabei, sind die größten Chart-Erfolge „Heal the World“, „Thriller“, „Man in the Mirror“, „Billie Jean“, „Beat it“ und viele mehr.

Bereits bei der Premiere in Berlin war schnell klar: Das ist zu gut, um es nur ein einziges Mal auf der Bühne zu haben und dann in der Versenkung verschwinden zu lassen. Michael Jackson und Klassik, das passt. „Es war ein Abend voller Zauber“, fasst Organisator Sebastiao Pembele zusammen und drückt damit genau das aus, was die Besucher fühlten.

Extra für die Shows kommt erneut das Isaiah Symphony Orchestra zusammen, das sich im Rahmen der ersten „Michael Jackson – The Symphony Experience“ gefunden und gegründet hat. Auch großartige Sänger werden dabei sein. Bisher haben die Soul-Sänger Mic Donet und Rino Galiano zugesagt, eine Sängerin soll noch dazu kommen. Es ist aber keine Las-Vegas-Show, keine Imitation.
