Walked throughout the South End on a few shopping errands after the Noreaster blew through the night before. This Arizona girl didn't quite know what to do with all of the snow...but a grilled cheese panini was in order. Had visited this charming shop on a Bites of the South End tour a year or so back, and decided to stop in again. I was not disappointed. This shop is eye candy. The cheese selection is intense and overwhelming to take in. The items are tagged beautifully with incredible descriptions, and the display is lovely. The staff is friendly and outgoing. I only wish there was a small spot where I could have enjoyed my sandwich, as I wound up eating it on my walk back to the T in the inclement weather. That aside, it was a great sandwich and I even picked up a few chunks of cheese that were on the tasting table. You need to stop here. Life is better with cheese--just ask Finley, my chocolate lab...lol.

It's hard to imagine that places like this still exist, with the options to buy everything online or at the big grocery and chain locations ... but the reason that they survive must be that - when you need someone to pick out and stock the best mustard, or tea cookies, or cheese - and you need it right now, for a party, or a gift, or to treat yourself right - and you want to support a local establishment that smells like nostalgia and history - then you come here and there's always something that's worth your time to buy. I never leave without getting something - even if I wasn't expecting to!
Enjoy :)

Formaggio is a cheese shop with an extensive selection and, fortunately, a knowledgeable staff to help customers sort through the myriad options. In addition to the fabulous cheese selections, the shop carries a small but well chose collection of wines and many condiments and ingredients that food lovers will appreciate. First rate!
