No kidding, buy the cheese. Eat it in lumps, its perfect. The fennel salami is pretty damn good and for a treat buy walnut pesto, fresh rolls and then smear the rolls with the pesto and just eat. Its fantastic. The only other recommendation is the sweet potato torta which is excellent. its not cheap but it really serves some... More

I'm so glad I tried this place, after reading the reviews. My ciabatta BLT was totally delicious. My daughter had parma ham, brie and tomato and said it was "delectable". Service was prompt, friendly and nothing was too much trouble.. I recommend them if you are in the area.

So nice to find a real delicatessen where everything is made fresh to order as stated and nothing was too much trouble. It was no trouble to have freshly baked Italian baguettes made with what ever we wanted on them. Our son had ciabatta with just parmaham, but it was the best San Danielle. For such a small shop it...

Staff very accommodating.... More

What can I say, but we always have an amazing laugh when meeting with a group of other regulars. The experience is even better, with the wonder coffee and food on offer. We regularly buy our evening meal from the freshly prepared fare. Sarah has made up many wonderful hampers for my clients at Christmas, who have always been over... More

Fabulous little deli. I come here for a ciabatta every time I am working in Christchurch. The food is always fresh and great quality and the lady who runs the place very friendly and welcoming. She also does lovely home-made cakes. The best lunch available in Christchurch in my opinion.

Convenient location and an excellent choice of really tasty food. I wish there were more room so we could have's at down'. Ideal for a sunny day snack and well worth a visit.
