Hailing from the great city of Chicago, this Italian inspired toping is known by all Chicagoans. This mix of fresh garden ingredients is a delicious addition for any sandwich. Our Pagliacci family recipe adds a bit of heat and a lot of flavor. Perfect for any Italian beef, sandwich, pizza eggs; the opportunities are endless! We mix our giardiniera in house, taking extra care of our product by packing and filling the jars by hand. After over 110 years of providing giardiniera to the Chicagoland area it’s certain you can count on us. Not only do we offer our Pagliacci hot giardiniera, there is a mild alternative without the heat, but all the flavor. If it’s still not hot enough, we still have you covered with our Pagliacci extra hot giardiniera. If that still isn’t enough we have a special mix made for those who thrive off the spice in their meal, Fat Johnnies Friggin Hot Giardiniera. Be warned, this is not for the faint of tongue. If giardiniera isn’t your style we still offer a variety of different topping to suit your needs.
