The Italian Shop is a warm and welcoming shop, where you can find a wide range of essential and rare Italian groceries, cooking ingredients, wines and spirits. We specialise in a wide range of good quality yet affordable cured meats, sausages, cheeses, and antipasti, which can not be found in many supermarkets.

Fresh, handmade, Italian style bread is available daily, Tuesday - Saturday, in The Italian Shop. This wonderful bread is also used for our breakfast and lunch time panini. If you require a particular type of bread, a regular order, or you need bread for a special occasion then pre ordering is recommended to ensure availability.

You can enjoy fresh coffee, fabulous panini and freshly made Italian cakes at our seating area in shop, or to take away. Italian cakes for all occasions can be ordered from The Italian Shop.

Carmela's Kitchen Cookery School

The Italian Shop works in Partnership with Carmela's Kitchen Cookery School, and regular Italian cookery classes are held at the shop. Pop in to check the latest schedule and to book yourself into a class. We also take private bookings for small groups of friends who would like to take a cookery class together!
