We want our guests to end their visit with a smile and the confidence that anything purchased is exceptional. So do what we do, put it to the ultimate test – your taste!

La Famiglia


Scardello is named after my grandfather, Peter Scardello, who taught me a love for great food. From the Italian tradition, he also taught me the importance of sharing food with friends and family. As a child, my favorite part of the meal was sitting around the table for hours listening to all of the stories. Growing up in a small Texas town, cooking was not something a lot of men did. My grandfather was the exception. While my grandmother was a great cook, it was always Papa’s kitchen.

papa-and-meI have cooked large, multi-course meals for friends and family for years. I found that cheese is a great way to start a meal, but an even greater indulgence at the end of the evening. It extends the meal and allows for more relaxation and conversation.

After spending 15 years in video production telling the stories of our clients, I now get to focus that story-telling energy on all of the fantastic cheeses we carry and the artisans who make them. So, please stop by and say “hello”!
