So pleased ...

The delicatessen produce has been a delight in 2014, and continues so to be in 2015 - we enjoy particularly the Italian salamis, Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella, artichoke hearts, Chianti sausages... and the service is friendly but never pushy. We enjoyed lunches here in 2014, too - splendid plates... read more

I honestly have never bought anything from here, so I realise you would think I have no reason to write a review however I do as it's quite simple. I went in there one day to see what it was all about as I was tempted by all the cured meats hanging from the ceiling..only to find out that they... More

Visited here after seeing no 1 restaurant in Christchurch. Great Deli. So picked up some bits to takeaway. But sorry not the no 1 restaurant in Christchurch. Wouldn't stay there to eat.

The town of Christchurch has more than enough of the big chain coffee shops; but as a local whenever I have time to treat myself to coffee and cake or a little lunch in town I make my way towards the Priory and pop into Sienna's, excellent food and wonderful service - such a little gem almost too good a...

Lovely coffee, and I do appreciate my coffee! Delicious cakes and generously sized portions to boot. Only wish I lived within walking distance!

This is a lovely Italian deli a few doors away from the beautiful priory. There are a few seats inside to eat Italian lunches, and the deli counter sells fresh goods - great variety of jamon and Italian meats, olives, cheese etc. The sign on the shop does not stand out that well - we had to keep hunting to...

Amazing ciabatta sandwiches made to order with great ingredients. Would recommend to anyone wanting an easy lunch in Christchurch. Not much space to eat-in but plenty of places to sit and eat with amazing views within 2 minutes walk.

It is without any doubt the best Delicatessen I have ever been to, the food served and prepared on the premises is of a very high standard indeed. Every time I visit it seems to get better if that was at all possible, I am a very awkward customer to serve I admit, but they always surprise me every time... More

Thank you so much for the fantastically displayed plate of mixed meats, cheeses, olives etc etc. Also the bread served with it was great. I could not have asked for better serve and help. Thank you again for everything
