About Varsi Deli!

In 1968, Ennio Varsi opened up the first gourmet Italian salumeria in Whitestone, Queens. His goal was to make the best Italian latticini and salumeria products available to the burgeoning community. Ennio's passion was evident in all that he did; from the hand made fresh mozzarella to the perfectly aged parmigiano and Ennio's line of home made fresh pastas and sauces, E.Varsi was the vessel by which Ennio lived out his passion.

In 1986 at the impressionable age of 15, Mario Garufi began working for Ennio. Slowly but surely Mario learned the Italian gourmet business from Ennio and over the course of nine years it became clear that Mario shared Ennio's passion for fine Italian products and he also not only worked for Ennio, but now worked with him. When, in 1995, Ennio decided to retire it was his hope that Mario would be willing to take over what Ennio had started and thus E. Varsi was sold to Mario and his two brothers, Carlo and Pino.

Today, Mario and Pino continue to carry on the traditions that have made Varsi Deli a Queens institution for so many years. They are all committed to carrying on the vision set forth by Ennio by continuing to meet their customers' expectations for high quality products and exceptional service.

The boys at E. Varsi look forward to seeing you and your family and to serving all of your Italian specialty needs.
