Mission Statement

Old Town, the very word, evokes a sense of history and a portal back to a time when life itself was defined by a seemingly more romantic set of values.

Romantic values based on a simpler, slower and better quality of life. At Old Town these values, as old fashion as they may be, still stand. Our foundations were built slowly; forged by skill, fortitude, passion and dedication.  It’s about slowing things down, celebrating ethics, preserving standards and rediscovering quality.

There was a time when a visit to your local grocery store was more of a social event than a chore. Where the butcher knew your preferences and the baker greeted you by name. A place where product knowledge, a hearty smile and sound advice was given freely. Old Town’s mission is to restore these qualities and rekindle those experiences.

After all, our body is our sanctuary, our temple and the only one we have.



Our restaurant is at the heart of the store where friends, business colleagues, family and people passing through stop to take it all in. The restaurant is a show case of our values, service and belief in authentic Italian food.


We promote the “slow food” movement. We take pride in our desire to preserve traditional and regional cuisine that supports local farmers of livestock, plants and seeds that complement the local ecosystem.


Host an event with the best food from Old Town Italy. From office meetings to birthdays to multi-course dinners, we are ready to cater for your occasion. We’ll take care of every last scrumptious detail.
