[MAP]

This colourful little café/shop is lined with authentic pasta, sauces, cured meats and cheeses, and run by the most exuberant Italian family you could hope to encounter behind a deli counter. Or indeed anywhere. As well as serving a good selection of panini, pasta, and antipasti, this deli makes the best cappuccino in Islington - an area curiously devoid of good coffee shops, despite housing what is surely the nation’s highest quota of coffee snobs. Myself included.
