Gannucci's is a small Italian market on Duluth's West Side with authentic products including a nice deli selection. The deli offers cured meats, Italian cheeses and ready to eat items.
It is also an Italian restaurant with great food, authentic music and a large, nicely-decorated dining room in the back.
This is the real deal for Italian! (Not to hmention a good selection of craft beers).
As of April 2015, Ganucci's owns the Jade Fountain Chinese restaurant next door (see DNT). Marco Polo would certainly be pleased with this buy-out!

After looking at all the import items in the store, I checked out the meat case. In addition to several kinds of salami and cured meats, they had fresh sausage. I asked whether the sausages were hot or sweet. "Not hot at all," the person behind the counter said, "No heat." Which made me feel a bit skeptical, but I bought two anyway.
I took them home, boiled them, and then browned them in a pan with peppers, onions, and garlic.. I was prepared to be disappointed. But, I was not. True, the sausages were not hot...but they were wonderfully flavorful and juicy. Definitely worth a trip to the other end of town. (Esther Derby)
