Just So Italian Deli, Market Harborough

Have I found heaven? Am I going to bankrupt myself at this deli? The answer to both of these questions is quite possibly yes.. yes I am.


Just So Italian is a deli in the heart of Market Harborough, run by Italian husband and wife team Alison and Daninlo Trozzi and can only be described as a dream. As you’ll know if you read my blog regularly, we are big lovers of Italy in our family. Stocked with everything from risotto rice to flavoured oils, pesto and cured meats, you could lose yourself among the shelves and come away thinking you’d been shopping in some trendy backstreet of Covent Garden. As importers of Italian products from all over the country, its no surprise that the Trozzi’s deli is so packed full of lovely things.

Turn away from the shelves and you come face to face with a counter which almost runs the length of the deli. Above the cheeses and cured meats is a mouthwatering selection of homemade Italian pastries and treats – zabaglione curls and chocolate & hazelnut aragostine amongst them. A steal at just 70p each! We took a tray of six away and promptly guzzled them down before going back to work! Or, if you have more of a savoury tooth, their home made pizzas are available to buy by the slice or more.

Another nice touch is their ‘create your own hamper‘ option. A great idea for Christmas and Birthday gifts. There are various options on their website and several made up and on display in the deli itself. Sadlyhis  I missed this for Christmas so I just picked up some gorgeous salty Pecorino and a bag of Carnaroli risotto rice. I’m planning to use them for one of my favourite and incredibly simple risotto recipes: Pecorino & Balsamic Vinegar Risotto.

All that’s left to do now is drool over the pictures – it really is a gorgeous place and a treasure trove of Italian loveliness. Oh…and if you live too far from Market Harborough, you can also order online!

Happy Shopping!

    I love the idea of a make your own hamper – it makes so much more sense to allow people to pick and choose what they want.

    Oh fab! I'm so pleased to have found this place too and so glad you liked it! I got some great risotto rice from there and had my eye on the artisan pestos so I'll be back soon too 🙂

    Someone with some cash and a penchant for italian produce NEEDS to open a place like this in the city centre. Yes I would bankrupt myself in it too, I might be poor but at least I'd be eating porchetta!

    I totally agree Adam! If I won the lottery it would be me! 🙂
