An excellent delicatessen, run by top chef and television celebrity Alastair Little.
Because of his interest in all things Italian, and his teaching links there, the business is very much geared to that front. The kitchen, at the back, produces some of the very best pasta sauces in London.
These might include Pesto Genovese (once tried you will never be able to go back to a bottled version), a rabbit sauce for pappardelle and perhaps a rich beef ragu for tagliatelle (which we might call Bolognese sauce, and generally incorrectly served with spaghetti).
There are plenty of excellent traiteur dishes and first-class Italian breads.
