About us


1989 - 1999

With the rise of many great Italian restaurants in the city of Philadelphia, like Monte Carlo Living Room, La Famiglia and Osteria Romana, to name a few, Oreste D’Elia, coming from Milan, saw an opportunity to share with others his passion for Italian food. He saw that people wanted to learn more about the Italian culture and more specifically about how to find quality Italian Gourmet food. He got in touch with some friends back in his home-country and started selling imported Italian food. He began selling Buffalo Mozzarella, Porcini mushrooms and fresh Truffles.

The response he received was overwhelming, but Oreste knew he could only get so far selling as part time job so in 1989 he decided to open an official business, which he named Milano Foods.

2000 - 2017

During this time Oreste made many friends, one of them being Nunzio from Monte Carlo

Living Room, who turned out to be an integral part to the success of the new Milano Foods. Nunzio introduced Oreste to many other restaurant owners and even had an “in” with French restaurants which helped Milano Foods expand greatly.

2018 & Beyond

Through the years many business owners have become close friends. Oreste learned a lot from them and he believes he reciprocated by sharing everything he’s learned along the way. He is an Epicurean in the sense that he is happiest when quality food and drink are in front of him and is surrounded by friends. But focusing on quality wasn’t always easy, he had to get through the financial ups and downs of the area he was positioned, but he did. Milano Foods has been in business for 30 years thanks to Oreste's passion and thanks to the hard work of his wife Rosemaria who has been by his side since the company’s beginning. Both of them have dedicated their lives to distributing the highest quality Italian food to the tri-state area.

Looking forward to serve you!
