Guidi Marcello Ltd. is a family owned import, wholesale, and Italian market, which prides itself on its extensive knowledge of Italian food & beverage products. This knowledge has been passed down through three generations, starting with its founder, Marcello Guidi, who left his Tuscan hometown of Lucca in 1945.
In 1981, his son Marco, now acting as owner & president of the company, relocated the headquarters of Guidi Marcello Ltd. to Santa Monica, California, when Los Angeles was ripe & ready for a purveyor of fine Italian products.
