Bringing a half-century of experience to their West End venue, Eusebi Deli is simply one of the best places to eat in the city.
Eusebi Deli may look and feel like a café, relaxed and informal, but the extraordinary food coming to the tiled-top tables would be at home in high-end, fine-dining establishments. Owner Giovanna Eusebi’s love of food and flavour results in exquisite, inspired creations and the kitchen puts in extra work to get things right – a pizza dough proves for 72 hours and is pinched Roman-style to create air bubbles and lightness; fresh pasta is made in-house, from scratch; and the breads and large selection of fancy cakes and patisserie come from Eusebi’s own bakery. Menus change every three months to keep in season – look for ox cheek and beef in winter, hare in spring and Sicilian lemons and fresh Italian tomatoes in summer. A starter of house-made ricotta with blood orange, salt beets and pistachio is beautiful on the plate and utterly joyful to eat, all pastel shades and contrasting textures and tastes, cool, salty, tangy and earthy. Pasta pillows encasing slow-cooked beef and winter mushrooms make a comforting hug of a dish. Accompanying Italian wines and beers are well chosen and interesting.
