By far, the best antipasto I have ever had. My parents who grew up in the Bronx were equally impressed. i look forward to ordering from Arthur Avenue Italian Deli and Foody Direct again.

It was okay, I wouldn't order again. Too expensive for the little you recieved and not very appealing in cheap plastic containers and cheese in cubes. What tasted the worst was the cheeses and dried loaf of bread. There wasn't any information on what was in the box. I need to go back to the web-site to see what we ordered. I don't think that I will order again from Food Direct. Very limited on what restaurants you can order from. We just moved to Montana a few years ago. we don't have many choices for food and restaurants here, so I thought ordering our favorite foods would get thru the winter.

What great gift of a antipasto, my husband has his knee replaced and it was perfect quick snack and/or lunch. The meats, cheeses and peppers were great. However I would change up the foccacia bread because it was dry and not much flavor. I would send this to someone or be happy to receive it again.
