Logo.jpg Edinburgh: Valvona and Crolla Deli

An Edinburgh institution since 1934, this Italian matriarch of delis oozes authenticity from every wooden pore. Huge wheels of cheese neatly line the shelves, refrigerated cases stuffed with mozzarella balls, sausages, and hams. Strings of garlic and dried peppers dangle from the ceiling between copper-bottom pots, adding to the delicious aroma seeping through the length of the skinny shop. Tall pine cabinets laden by a merchant prince's ransom in rare tea, sugar, coffee, spices, and pasta neatly run a gauntlet back to the renowned wine cellar. Freestanding wire racks hawk jams and Italian cookies, another case pre-made salads, sandwiches, and luxurious risotto and pastas.

Dozens of bottles from obscure corners of Italy join with flamboyant chiantis and supertuscans, stately roses, and rarer grapes. Frequent tastings explore European regions and farther abroad. The Caffe Bar upstairs serves downstairs produce in lavish lunches paired to fine wine. The peaked cedar ceiling leaves the air of an Umbrian winery in the heart of Edinburgh.
