Giovanni's Deli


99-105 Main Rd, Cape Town

Giovanni’s Deli has been a local favorite for as long as most Capetonians can remember. Still a family-run affair three decades after it opened, this spot specializes in the kind of Italian food you’d expect to find, well, in Italy. Cape Town’s European delis are nearly as common as the local spaza, or convenience store, but Giovanni’s is in a league of its own. Stop by anytime to pick up pre-cooked pastas to go, or arrive before 9am to grab an espresso or cappuccino, plus a pastry before they’re gone—the deli fills up fast, and sells out just as quickly.
