I have gotten to know elisabetta over the few years I have lived in walthamstow. She is so welcoming and the deli is brilliant for unique Italian products that are not otherwise readily available. She... has built a brilliant business that caters to all. I have bought all sorts of Biscotti, pizza flour, cheese, wine and other goodies. I hope the business will always be central to the community. See More

What I love most about the deli is the level of service and care taken by those who work there. Having tricky allergies, it's fantastic to find somewhere that I can trust to get accurate information. ...Every visit I've made has been wonderful and I always leave with a smile on my face. Thanks.

Absolutely my fave shop in E17. Not only is the quality of the food excellent (the burrata I bought at my last visit was the stuff dreams were made of), the vibe is great too! I like to pop in for a g...lass of wine and a snack in the evening, its like wandering into a friends house! See More

I LOVE the Italian Deli of Walthamstow! It's an Aladdin's cave of wonderful products that Elisabetta chooses very carefully - really lovely stuff! The sights and smells remind me of the local shops n...ear my grandparents' flat in Rome, but a much more stylish version of them! The aperitivo is superb - delicious free nibbles to accompany your tipple of choice, while you sit out front and watch the world go by..... My favourite Walthamstow shop :) ♥ See More

The deli would not be what it was without Elisabetta. Warm, amber colours and lighting, eclectic and traditional assortments of fine cheeses, candies, and condiments, along with a collection of wines make a sommelier full of envy only serves as a backdrop to the welcoming smile and greeting that is Elisabetta. Be sure to stop by and say hi as you buy your next basket for the upcoming holidays! See More

HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally made it to the Italian Deli today!!!! Boy was it worth the wait!!!! I am not sure if it was a good thing or a bad thing that where I was parked had a 30 minute time... limit.
I could have spent a lot longer in there and I would have probably bought a bit of everything that was there!
Unfortunately I can't remember the names but I bought:
Fennel Salami (delicious)
A hot rectangular shaped salami (delicious)
An even hotter round salami (delicious)
A salami tha had a cheesy border (delicious)
Some Auricchio cheese (delicious )
And finally some Gorgonzola (delicious)
Everything was so nicely wrapped, the girl that served me was lovely. What a wonderful atmosphere in the shop! My only criticism is that the girl who served me (I don't know her name) needed to have much faster skates on so that she could have sold me half the shop in the time I had. Like I say...that is possibly a good thing LOL

The Italian Delicatessen at Walthamstow stocks the finest pasta and ingredients to make an amazing supper dish. Elisabetta and her team are extremely helpful--certainly worth a visit.
