Question re: groceries in Italy (Rome)

Jump to last reply

We arrive in Rome late on a Saturday evening after the groceries have closed for the weekend and our apartment rental owners have kindly offered to stock our apartment (near the Pantheon on Via del Seminario) with groceries to tide us over if we provide a list. I'm admittedly unfamiliar with grocery stores in Rome and do not want to ask for something difficult to find or ambiguous. We are 4 adults and one 1-yr-old. We can eat out of course, but with a toddler adjusting to the time difference, it would be helpful to have the makings for at least one meal on hand.

Below is my first stab at a basic list... please feel free to correct, make suggestions, help me clarify, etc :-).

1 large loaf rustic bread
1/2 kilo deli ham, sliced thinly
1/2 kilo genoa salami or similar, sliced thinly
1/2 kilo mild provalone cheese, sliced thinly
1 jar applesauce, unsweetened if available
1 liter milk
5 bananas
5 apples or pears
1 carton fruit-flavored yogurt

Many thanks, and again, please feel free to point out if I am requesting something not commonly available!
