I've been coming to this place for lunch for years and love it. Yes, love it. Where else can you get delicious sandwiches, ciabattas, pizza, olives and other Italian food, quickly and freshly made at very reasonable prices in Pimlico? Answer: you can't - this is the place to come.
It also scores highly for being a genuine Italian delicatessen, run by Italians, patrionised by Italians and stocked to the rafters with Italian produce. The owner and his staff are very friendly too. The only slight drawback is that it focuses on food to go, with only three tables to sit at, though they're often unoccupied. I really can't recommend this place highly enough.
How have i never seen this place before, i work just round the corner!
One of those places that just smells divine when you walk in. Piles of (albeit pricey) Italian goods, The sandwiches and Olives are simple but really tasty. Ciabbata with pesto, mozzerella and tomatoes, all fresh and full of yum
I am only going to mention one of the lines they carry, and that in a whisper..the Barilla Sfoglia di Grano crackers. They are pure, light, crisp and flaky salted delights, with or without cheese.
The best pizzas in the world. This is supposed to be a deli but years ago they used to make and sell a couple of pizzas a day, just for fun. Now they are making and selling hundreds of pizzas a day...they sell it by the slice and is trhe only hot food that they sell. It is delicious and have loved the pizzas they do from day one. It is a very special recipe and doesn't look like your average pizza hut slice.This is real Italian pizza.
The food here is amazing! There isn't an enormous choice, but what they have is so delicious that it doesn't matter.
First time I went at lunchtime I had a ham and cheese sandwich, but all the ingredients were so fresh and of such good quality that it was the nicest ham and cheese sandwich I've ever had.
The second time I went in the evening and my husband and I shared the selection of stuff (can't remember the official name), which was a wooden board with different meats and cheeses. Again, delicious.
The only bad points related to our second visit when we were slightly overcharged, the service was very slow, and (probaby because of its location) it was full of v loud, posh people.
They seem to have a very good wine selection and the attached deli looked very tempting, I hope to return when I'm next in London.
Just discovered this place. It's a sandwich shop that gets you addicted to its sandwiches. The owner doesn't smile much, but the service is impeccable and the atmosphere of the shop is very worm for some reason. I had the Parma ham and mozzarella cheese with sun-dried tomatoes. This store also sells amazing roasted olives. I had some with my sandwich and they taste was unbelievably good. I say it again, the shop is small and no fancy decoration, but the warmth of the atmosphere makes up for it. Gastronomia Italia is a true Italian cafe.
