Truffle Cafe

Providing unique & delicious specialty foods and wines to customers online and at Seattle's Pike's Place Market. We hand-select only the finest items that are just too good to not share with you!

Truffle Cafe - La Buona Tavola

At, we offer the same gourmet food items that customers have come to know and love through our shop at Seattle's Pike's Place Market. Purchase everything from truffle salts to gluten-free corn pasta. Orders over $60 ship free with ground shipping.

What does La Buona Tavola Mean?

For the Italians, it's a phrase used to pay tribute to Hosts who joyfully serve their guests the absolute best they have to offer. Whether it's simple fare prepared with gusto, or more intricately composed menus featuring regional delicacies, when you have a Buona Tavola, your guests will sense that you cherish THEIR enjoyment - and that you haven't forgotten to join in the pleasure, as well!

Someone with a Buona Tavola knows that having people over is not about slaving over handmade invitations and complicated recipes, but about relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family. Preparing the meal with a glass of wine in hand, listening to music, chatting with the early arrivals and enlisting their aid in the final preparations.

As our own Chef Alexandra advised her California Culinary Academy students, "Keep it simple: buy fresh, good quality ingredients - and then stay out of their way!"

To that end, we've tasted every item we stock; we sell only the things we've fallen in love with. That's our promise to you: 100% Satisfaction - whether you buy our Italian Truffles and Pate, or an affordable bottle of Wine with a bag of Croccantini, you can be sure that you're getting the best.

When you're in Seattle, stop by our Shop at the World Famous Pike Place Market! Sample our Truffle products, the aged Balsamicos, the carefully selected Italian Wines made from hand-picked grapes - share our enjoyment of the Specialty Foods we have personally selected for you - our guests.

We look forward to getting to know you better and providing you with gourmet delicacies for years to come!
