The original Parisi Italian Market & Deli opened in 1998, in what's now the home of Cafe Brazil, and proved so popular that it soon moved to a bigger space on Tennyson Street. The restaurant changed more than locations, though: Over the years, Simone and Christine Parisi shifted emphasis from a market that had prepared foods to more of a sit-down eatery. But one thing remained a constant: Simone wanted to serve the best authentic Italian fare possible, based on places he'd frequented growing up in Florence, including mozzarella made in-house, homemade tagliatelle and tagliolini pasta, and nearly twenty varieties of panini.
