News just in:
Just to say that we were delighted to find that Luigi Di Lieto, formerly of the Di Lieto family bakery on the South Lambeth Road, is back. And so is his brother Giovanni.
Luigi is running ITALO, a delightful new Italian deli in Bonnington Square. ITALO is on the corner with Vauxhall Grove at 13 Bonnington Square SW8 1TE (07590 609 590).
The deli is open from 9.30 am to 8.30 pm Monday to Friday and 9.30 am to 6 pm on Saturdays. As well as coffee (Espresso’s 90p), Luigi’s doing sandwiches and takeaways: on the day we looked in, you could have Penne alla Matriciana, Parmigiana alla Melanzane and (for vegetarians) Rigatoni alle Melanzane.
Luigi’s brother Giovanni is helping out at ITALO’s for a while, and if one piece of good news isn’t enough, he is preparing to reopen the family bakery early in the New Year.This time, the Di Lietos’ bakery will be at the junction of Brixton Road and South Island Place.
