Hg2 : The Hedonist

Giovanni’s Deli

The Esposito brothers have been running one of the most traditional Italian delis in Cape Town – known to many as Little Italy – for over two decades, and you get a sense of the neighbourhood buzz without even setting foot inside. It’s so much a part of the fabric of Green Point’s street life – and now almost impossibly close to the new football stadium – that you’d swear many of those regulars perched on the roadside terrace are permanent fixtures. There’s always a crowd here, and even if you just stop by for a powerful espresso or a freshly- made sandwich of imported Parma, pesto, and serious cheese, you’ll probably end up wanting to hang around for hours, caught in the grip of conversational gossip. Besides the tantalisingly-stocked shelves, there are pre-cooked meals that you can take away with you, and more than enough fantastic ingredients to fill up that picnic basket, including wine.
