No
There is a small chabad supermarket that sells some odds and ends

So I'd have to stock up in Rome or Venice? That's a bummer.

If you are serious about this (AKA-you have a trip lined up and need help), why don't you go through the threads that you are creating these blank wikis about and populate the wikis yourself and then someone will help you.
Instead of people asking the same questions over and over, wouldn't it be great if the wiki said it all? The hope is that the educated will fill it in and it'll get updated as needed.
I'm going in a few days so I hope to fill it in.

Not sure what you are looking for. If you are looking for a heter I can direct you to Rabbis who will tell you it's OK. I have heard from reliable sources not to eat there

No, I'm not looking for a heter. I'm asking my LOR, but I just wanted to know why some people won't eat there. Is it like the KVH of Boston or R' Bukspan of LA that some people won't eat at?
