I very much like Morilli's. Most of the staff who do stocking and help you to your car with your order are GREAT. The prices and quality are great. BUT, the owners and some long-time staff can be very rude. Do not believe the website sale prices, because if you ask for them, staff blame owners and owners blame staff for the lack of updating to the website. They yell at you, argeu with you, and are very disrespectful. Sad for such a good business. They need to get there webite ads off if they do not want to offer the sales prices !!!! And not be degrading to customers !!!!!
Best Italian Market - 2009
These are things worth believing in: food and liquor sold under the same roof, family-run businesses thriving, and both of those happening in a vibrant city neighborhood. Morelli's Market scores on all three counts. Walking in the door of Morelli's is like stepping into an episode of The Sopranos (minus the violence). The market not only has a wonderful selection of homemade Italian specialties like manicotti, ravioli, and spumoni, it also has a full liquor department and a butcher shop. And the prices, oh the prices! Morelli's has weekly specials on liquor at steep discounts, and whole beef tenderloins have been known to go for $4.99 a pound. The quality of the meat is exceptional, the butchers are knowledgeable, and they will even share their personal recipes with you. Located on the east side of St. Paul near historic Swede Hollow, Morelli's was established in 1930, and we are guessing the market looked exactly the same back then as it does today. Morelli's gives you reason to believe there still is a place where an old-school business can flourish and deliver the goods. Just don't forget to bring cash or your checkbook: One way Morelli's keeps those prices down is by not taking credit cards.
