Our Story
Since 1985

Serving Fine Italian Foods Since 1985

At the young age of 13 our founder, Carmine Battimelli, made his introduction into the world of food. He began as a delivery boy for his local butcher shop in Brooklyn, NY. He worked his way up learning all aspects of the business from making fresh mozzarella and Italian sausage, to master butchering and preparing classic entrees. When Carmine was 21 he ventured to Stratford, CT and opened a store of his own creation. Using skills he learned at the pork store and  his family recipes, he developed a menu and atmosphere unlike any other in the area. Carmine has since moved the store to Fairfield, CT where Battimelli’s A&S Italian Fine Foods stands today. And over 35 years later Battimelli’s A&S still stands and continues to build on the traditions of generations past.

Moving To Fairfield

In 1993, Carmine moved his business to Fairfield, CT. Now known as Battimelli’s A&S Italian Fine Foods, he has expanded his offerings by including top quality gourmet items, Certified Black Angus Meats, top quality poultry, pork and veal, and offering a larger variety of fresh pastas. The store also carries a large selection of hot and cold prepared entrees, soups & salads. A&S is recognized as one of the “Fairfield Top 50” by Fairfield Magazine, and was voted “Best Sandwich & Prepared Meals” by Fairfield County Weekly. We continue to provide the quality service and products that are recognized by a variety of publications and organizations, as well as by our loyal cutomers.
