High quality deli produce is one of the draws at this charming Prebend Street spot – most of what they sell and serve here is sourced direct from Italy. It's tucked away in the residential back streets of Islington, but it's worth the five minute walk from Angel or Essex Road.
Italian wines, olive oil, packets of pasta, balsamic and biscotti fili the wooden shelves and double as decoration. A vast range of cheeses, meats and freshly baked breads appetise under a long glass service counter. A few tables outside prove a draw when the sun's out, with nice enough views across to St James Church.
Food options range from authentic bruschetta and generously stuffed sandwiches to well-regarded Neapolitan pizzas, fresh, own-made pasta dishes and colourful salads. Expect top notch ingredients used throughout. A short wine list is keenly priced, and all-Italian.
