What’s in a Name?

Family – Is what’s In Our Name.


Nonna DeRosa helped start this journey!

Owner, Francis J. Cuomo was raised in the Bronx, New York, a stone’s throw away from Arthur Avenue. Known as the “real” Little Italy, Arthur Avenue holds the reputation as “the” place to buy the best tasting breads, fresh pasta, Italian sausage, pastries, meats, seafood, and espresso. Arthur Avenue is also known as “the” place to dine, boasting some of the best, true Italian restaurants in the city. Francis Cuomo proudly brings this authentic neighborhood shopping and dining experience to Southwest Florida.

Francis & Grandmother Olympia Cuomo

Francis grew up with both sets of grandparents living only a block away. Surrounded by great friends and a close-knit family, he learned about values, tradition, and the art of authentic Italian cuisine. As a tribute to his grandparents, Francis blended the two family names – DeRosa and Cuomo – to establish DeRomo’s.

DeRomo’s Gourmet Market and Restaurant brings the flavor and feel of Little Italy to Southwest Florida. A warm, friendly, and creative environment coupled with a fresh,  authentic home-style cuisine, will make you feel right at home!
