Carfagna’s is ready to open the doors to its new 27,000 square-foot home.

Carfagana’s Italian Market & Ristorante celebrates its grand opening on Tuesday, September 7 at 1400 Gemini Place, marking a new era for the long-standing family business.

Years in the making, the new concept not only puts Carfagna’s market and restaurant under one roof, but creates a whole new experience for shoppers and diners.

The space features a wine and liquor store, a grocery with a wide selection of Italian staples like pasta, sauce, and olive oil, and areas where shoppers can watch fresh cheese and fresh pasta being made. There are grab-and-go eats, desserts, a bar, café and event space. The meat counter is designed to be reminiscent of its former home on Dublin-Granville Road.

The new location will mean the end of Carfagna’s former restaurant and market. The restaurant officially closed as of August 23, while the market will be open through Labor Day (10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday, September 6).

Carfagna’s Market will be open from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily.
