SOUTHFIELD, MICH (WXYZ) — Cantoro Italian Market & Trattoria is inspired by the famous Italian markets in Rome, Venice and Palermo.
Throughout the year, owners Michael and John Fallone travel to their father Mario’s Italian birthplace in search of the best food and wines to bring back to Cantoro, items found nowhere else in the U.S. It’s no wonder that the eatery is consistently named one of the best markets and trattoria in the U.S.

· 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
· 1 cup of mayonnaise
· 2 teaspoons of salt
· 1 teaspoon of black pepper
