Lima’s Deli is a classic deli and sells lots of nice produce from fresh pasta to olive oil! Purchased some truffle oil and cream and some fresh ravioli to cook at home! A must visit for any home cook!

Wow wish I had looked online before buying some amarena fabbri cherries from here. They charged me £24.95. Sounds a lot? Well that is 297% more expensive than Ocado and 228% more expensive than Amazon. It's a lovely shop...just take out an overdraft before you...More
