Here is a link to a Google street view image of a rather nice sign for a "ristorante & pizzeria".

The largest lettering appears to be in a typewriter-style font.

Can't clearly see if it is distressed but Trixie by Erik van Blokland does fit. https://www.fontfont.com/fonts/trixie/packages#30537

I have now found the following image of the sign on the side of the building. The image has been taken at a closer range. In addition it can be displayed full screen and zoomed-in three times.

The typewriter font does look as if it is distressed. The distressing of the d in the Google street view image appears to me to match well the distressing of the d in your illustration.

it always amazes me that the sign painter copies truth and faults.
