You may have to wait a little while here as everything is cooked from scratch, but boy is it worth it, meatballs to die for, melt in the mouth deserts, cheese and meat platters and a whole range of deli products. If you love italian, you will love this, but allow plenty of time.

As fans of bruschetta I have to say it was one of the best I've had, so fresh and lots of garlic. The panini was also very good, high... More
