Step into the new Due Focacceria Italian eatery and market in St. Paul’s Macalester-Groveland neighborhood and it’s clear fresh baked flatbreads are the star of the show. It seems owner Eric Carrara, who runs the spot with his wife, Vanessa, is paying tribute to his roots. His mom is from Sicily and his dad is from the Tuscany region.
