TOWN 'N COUNTRY, Fla. — You can't visit Town 'N Country without a delicious stop at Cacciatore Bros. grocery and deli.

This foodie paradise is celebrating 125 years in Tampa Bay. The Cacciatore Family originally traveled from Sicily, and opened the very first store inside the family home in Ybor City.

Since 1964, Phillip Cacciatore has been running the exotic meat and cheese heaven.

"I just love what I do," Phillip says. "I'd keep on doing it forever if I could."

Cacciatore Bros. is most famous for its wide array of homemade Italian sausages and varied prosciutto.

You can also get blissfully lost in the wine and cheese section, and get winded walking the meat counter at the butcher shop.

Lunchtime draws a long line for overstuffed sandwiches.

"People who come in here for the first time," says Phillip, "they always fall in love."
