Bella Cucina, the Italian-inspired food and lifestyle brand that once had a Virginia-Highland storefront, quietly opened a pop-up at the end of November in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, according to a press release Monday.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bella Cucina to The Shops Buckhead Atlanta and to be a part of their continued success as a specialty food and lifestyle retailer,” Anneliese Reid, marketing manager of The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, said in the release.
Bella Cucina’s offerings include pestos, olive oils, aromatic savory salts, citrus spreads, Italian flatbreads and crackers, and Dolci desserts.
A curated selection of ceramic ware and wooden utensils are also available.
Signature items include Oprah’s list favorite Artichoke Lemon Pesto, seasonal selections such as heirloom Piccolo Pomodoro Tomato & Basil, and Citrus & Fennel Savory Salt.
Bella Cucina is situated on Buckhead Avenue next to Alice + Olivia. The retailer’s hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Owner Alisa Barry since 1993 has continued her wholesale business with an operation out of East Point, retailing Bella Cucina items in stores like Whole Foods and Crate and Barrel.
While The Shops Buckhead Atlanta store is being called a “pop-up,” Barry told Atlanta Magazine the shop was “there to stay.”
