Excellent little Deli. Fine sandwiches, good coffee and wonderfully friendly staff. Strongly recommend the Pasteis de Nata (Portuguese Custard Tarts) or a slice of house chocolate cake with a cup of coffee!
One day, I arrived at work to discover that I'd forgotten my sandwich at home. "EGADS!" I cried. It was a heart wrenching affair, full of strife and tears, but I had to persevere. Come noon, I found myself on the street walking towards Dulwich centre. It was at this point that I came across La Gastronomia.
Henceforth, unbeknown to me, I was saved from the fatal grip of a Tesco lunch. I walked in the store. The walls were lined with beautiful preserves, zesty spreads and fine Italian goods. The display cases boasted fancy meats and cheese along with a tantalizing display of antipastos. They also boasted things like "My food is better than your food" and "I can kick a soccer ball better than anyone!" but the staff did a good job quieting them up.
The guy at the counter was very lovely and from hi I ordered a grilled ciabatta filled with goat cheese, pesto and sun-dried tomato. It might have done well with a bit more pesto, but the overall effect was just plain... - no not plain, because it was anything but that - just undeniably satisfying.
La Gastronomia is a family run deli & coffee shop that as been open since 1989 and I have being coming here for ages..
As you walk in you instantly smell fresh coffee, fresh pasta & ciabatta bread..hmm..!
It has a real taste of Italy with a vast selection of authentic mediterranean yummy delights..
Ham, salamis, pates, dips, cheese, antipasti, pasta, Sauces, Olive Oils, Olives, Spices, Juices, Wines & Beers & Spirits & others....
Really friendly & polite staff that don't just sell scrumptious things (sometimes give you a cheeky sample!! ;0) but also helpful on how to relish them at their best, with some traditional recipes. Love that.!
