Ludovina's Italian Fresh Market
Ludovina's specializes in homemade pasta, sauce, lasagna, & various Italian dishes. It is a family
owned Italian Fresh Market, located in historical Abingdon, VA.
The owners, Gloria Cocilova & Jeannie Ferracci, along with their husbands, Richard Cocilova & Michael Ferracci, started the business in 2010.
Ludovina's got its name from Michael Ferracci's great-aunt, Ludovina Pirani, who immigrated to the United States from Italy. She, her sisters, and friends (one of which was Richard Cocilova's mother) would get together and make homemade ravioli, pasta and sauces from recipes they brought from Italy. The recipes, which were passed down to their families, are still used by Ludovina's.
Since the store's opening in April 2011, Ludovina's has continually added new recipes. They are also selling a variety of imported Italian meats, cheese, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, wine & other Italian specialties.
