Venissimo is the only place we purchase cheese in San Diego. We love usually pack a picnic for our hikes and the cheeses are are a necessity for our basket. They have a wide variety of goat, cow, sheep and vegetarian cheese that are hard, soft, stinky, or for dessert. I love how they let you sample any cheese you want, the hardest part is choosing which ones for them to wrap up for you.
They also carry artisan salumi's and other gourmet products. Venessimo supports local businesses by carrying excellent local made gourmet chocolates and truffles.
