In 1946, after serving in the US Navy, Frank D. Bolognino teamed with his cousin, Vince Pellegrino, and opened the original Roma Importing Co in the heart of Albany NY's "little Italy." Two years later, Frank's brother Jim joined the thriving business, where the focus was providing quality Italian foods and deli offerings to local customers and businesses.

With the development of the South Mall adjacent to the first location, the brothers saw a limited future in downtown Albany and in 1961 they decided to open a second store in the suburb of Latham, the crossroads of the Tri Cities. Read More

This is the best place to go to get ethnic Greek and Italian foods. They have all of those hard to find ingredients you just can't find in a regular supermarket. The deli is fabulous with a huge variety of meats, cheeses, and already prepared foods. The butcher is equally as wonderful. They will custom cut your meat while you wait. They also have desserts made by local bakeries available for sale. The employees are very knowledgeable as well.


I remember when the store was on Rt. 9. It was big treat back then for my parents taking us there getting fresh delicious cold cuts every Saturday, and the smell of cheeses hanging was an amazing smell Now we continue this tradition my parents started, been customers since we started our family, with 3 sons that go there especially for the subs, and clams.Great family, very friendly and when the grandkids go with me always asks for slice of cheese. Thank you for all your hard work to keep your family business going.
