Ferrucci’s Old Tyme Market 

Ferrucci’s Old Tyme Market is the home of good ole Italian food. Founded in 1999, this Italian food specialty store serves residents of Cornelius with fresh food and cooked Italian meals. The meal is well priced, and the service is great. You will definitely love it here. Also, there is enough room for family and friends should you want to bring them along.

At Rolle Oral & Facial Surgery, we recommend extra oral care before and after eating Italian meals or any spicy food. These foods can stain your teeth or trigger the secretion of acid in your mouth, which can cause tooth decay over time. Before diving into an Italian meal, try eating dark greens like broccoli or a salad. After the meal, you should eat stain-preventing fruits like cucumber, carrot, and apples.

COVID 19 Update: Due to the COVID, visitors are required to visit restaurants with a face mask and maintain social distance. Based on state guidelines, only 10 people can meet indoors. So you can expect Ferrucci’s Old Tyme Market to follow these rules.
