This place is a proper old school deli: everything's behind counters and the shop guy is wearing a white jacket over his clothes, and makes little grunts as he climbs a step to get the pasta off the top shelf. If you're not excited already then you don't deserve to shop here...
It has all the usual stuff: tonnes of pasta, awesome biscuits, esoteric cheeses, and all the pasta sauce you can carry. I bought a box of rigatoni and a jar of amatriciana for £3.75 which is pretty bloody cheap.
Basically I have nothing bad to say about it. Go!
YAY Italian food!!
And it's not expensive! I bought a loaf of bread, a huge hunk of provolone cheese, and salami all for under £5. They sell all the legit Italian stuff in one place, so if you want to cook, come here instead of Tesco metro across the street. I'm going to start coming here during my breaks from uni and getting snacks because everything was sooo tasty
This is a great place to get genuine italian meats, which I suspect has had a drop off in trade since tesco opened virtually opposite. Also good for 'sick biscuits' aka sponge fingers aka savoiardi biscuits, in case of tiramisu cravings. Varieties of cheese and panettone also available.
This is a lovely traditional shop selling specialist Italian food in the tradition of this area, which was once something of an Italian enclave. Meats cakes coffee and all sorts of delights are here. Good for unusual food gifts.
