Bringing a half-century of experience to their West End venue, Eusebi Deli is an emporium of Italian delights.
With its striking white and red façade and gleaming interior Eusebi Deli is a retro Italian deli and restaurant for the 21st century. Word of its creative and heritage-driven food has spread far and wide since opening its West End venue in 2015. The quality of cooking and ingredients (olive oil from Calabria and meats from Norcia in Umbria) speak for themselves, but the backstory for many of the dishes is equally impressive. Pasta e fagioli is a rustic dish of tangy tomato-based broth infused with salty Parmesan rinds, beans, and silky house-made short pasta with a lid of pillowy focaccia for dunking. Its terracotta pot is a nod to the owner’s grandmother who originally cooked it on embers outdoors in winter. It’s easy to follow up one of their unique pinsas (pizzas inspired by ancient Rome made using an easily digestible flour of soy, sourdough wheat and rice) with one – or likely two – of their bombolone, or donuts, which come filled with pistachio, nutella or tiramisù creams. A new ‘Bellini brunch’ menu with sharing platters and make-your-own prosecco-based cocktails will make it even harder to tear yourself away at weekends.
