Our Story

About Us

Antonio's love of Italian food led him to search for the perfect opportunity to share their passion with others. They knew they had found what they had been looking for with Gennaro Delicatessen.

Since January 2004, Antonio has worked hard to develop Gennaro Delicatessen (Antonio Delicatessen) into a local household name for Italian food. Their excellent service and welcoming atmosphere paid off when they were voted Most Popular Retail Business in the 2006 Lewisham Business Awards.

His reputation is growing: in June 2008, Time Out named Gennaro one of London’s Top Twenty Italian food shops, describing Antonio as “charmingly helpful” and his Italian own-brand olive oil as “a must-buy.” Antonio’s philosophy is that shopping should be a social experience, even perhaps with a touch of magic.
