Welcome to alla vita

olive oils & balsamic vinegars are our passion

Closing Letter

Dear Friends and Customers,

alla vita will be closed for business at the current location as of 4 p.m. on Friday, October 28th.  Although it is difficult to leave the beautiful space that my staff and I have occupied for the past 8 years, it does not mean the end of alla vita foods and products.

In early November, I’ll be relocating to the North Branch Café at 41 State St., just a couple of doors away, to prepare the soups, salads, and eventually panini that you have enjoyed at alla vita.  In January, the café will take over the space currently occupied by North Branch Tech Services.  This will become a retail space for North Branch tea and tea ware along with alla vita olive oils, balsamic vinegars and wines.  It will also be a takeout space for to-go food orders, allowing for more seating in the café area.

The North Branch is a cozy space that has welcomed customers for 10 years.  I am very happy to join owner and friend Lauren Parker and her team.  Keep watch for further announcements coming soon via email and on the alla vita and North Branch websites.

Thank you so much for your support over the last month and the past 8 years.
