Shop St. Louis: Go Italian on The Hill

Get the best of the old country and some thoroughly modern finds, too

The Hill, St. Louis' storied Italian neighborhood, boasts the best collection of Italian restaurants this side of Rome, but is less well known for its daytime shopping—except by savvy locals who flock here for imported Italian comestibles at DiGregorio's Market, famed domestic prosciutto and other cured meats at Volpi Foods and fine kitchen equipment at Bertarelli Cutlery. Lovers of Italian-themed gifts (from aprons to music CDs) can find them at Girasole Gifts & Imports, and aficionados of the idiosyncratic Skif line of sweaters can see what's new for the season at Skif Boutique.
