Giacobazzi’s is a much-loved neighbourhood Italian deli, run by Raff and Renata and their family since 1991. They do just about everything Italian you might need or know about – but what sets them apart is their home-made pasta, prepared in the kitchens behind the shop. This is truly outstanding and includes particular delights for veggies such as goronzola and walnut tortelloni or the sublime mushroom and truffle ravioli, and a fabulous porcini lasagna (£18 for a large dish good for 4–5 people). They’re good on seasonal Italian treats, too. Or as they put it, “we live in London but we eat in Italy”.
