Pecorino Romano

(Locatelli) - 1 lb

Locatelli is a brand name of cheese and Pecorino Romano is a variety of cheese. The Locatelli family began producing Pecorino Romano over 500 years ago in the Lazio region of Italy. Today, Locatelli Pecorino Romano is considered to be one of the finest Pecorino Romano's available. It is unique in quality because it is hand-crafted from 100% pure sheep's milk which is aged over 9 months at a minimum. The result is a spicy and sharp, dry cheese that is perfect for grating. We like to cut up some small pieces and enjoy it as a snacking cheese, accompanied with traditional Italian antipasti and even artisanal Italian honey and compotes.

Awesome Product - Wonderful Customer Service

I ordered Locatelli Cheese from Ditalia and they made it the easiest transaction. I was worried with the summer temperatures the cheese would not make it across country without damage. I called and spoke with the Brian and he assured me their packaging would be such that the cheese would arrive with no problems. I then received a response from Scott on the same inquiry. I felt confident to place the order and 2 days later I received my cheese. It was perfectly packaged and the ice packs were still cold. I will continue to be a returning customer because of their wonderful products, great customer service and because they have the cheese I grew up with and can't find anywhere out west. Thank you!
Excellent cheese and service

I can not find Locatelli in my area! It's the only cheese our family ever used for meatballs, pasta, soups, everything! I appreciate being able to order this from such a great company. It arrives well wrapped, so I am able to freeze extra. Thanks for the great service!
Speedy service - and just what I wanted!

I have been buying from DITALIA for the last couple of years because my children who live in the Midwest can not get. Now that I have moved closer to them ,I will be purchasing for DITALIA more often. I am very satisfied with the product. Just what I use to purchase when I lived in New York and I get it within three days. thank you

This cheese arrived in a few days of my order and was, as usual, extremely fresh. I wouldn't order it from any other company. Keep up the good work.

My favorite on macaroni
Nov 20, 2014  |  By Marianne Postiglione
My mother always used this cheese (grated) on macaroni rather than parmesan. It fully satisfies the taste buds...at least mine!
