Or better yet, all the aforementioned activities in one entertaining afternoon.An institution to the lucky residents of Oak Bay (and those willing to travel a little ways for great imported goodies), Ottavio Bakery and Delicatessen is celebrating its 15th anniversary in style this Saturday September 15th from 11am to 3pm. Visitors can look forward to grilled lamb sandwiches, olive oil, coffee and cheese tastings, a special cake and live opera from local baritone, Sam Marcaccini.While you celebrate along with past employees and Oak Bay’s current mayor, Nils Jensen, be sure to give a congratulations to owners Andrew Moyer and Monica Pozzolo. Browse the handmade breads, specialty pantry items (pasta, balsamic vinegars, etc.), 250 cheese, cured meats, pastries and house made gelato. For a more lingering visit, try the adjoining café to try them all on a traditional antipasto platter or go for one of many different varieties of panini.2272 Oak Bay Avenue Saturday, September 15th, 11am-3pmOttavio Italian Bakery & Deli—BY ELIZABETH NYLAND anniversarydeliEdiblesVictoria SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Guest Writer We get many people writing guest articles for us, as well as past contributors.
