“I was thrilled to collect the award” says Mario, owner of Mari Deli & Dining.
“It recognizes the hard work of Mama Maria and the whole team. But most of all, I’m proud to have brought the authentic flavours of Italy to west London.”
The Italian Gusto awards celebrate the best of Italian food, wine and hospitality in London’s restaurants, delis and pizzerias as well as its wine bars, patisseries and bakeries. The judging panel included chefs, sommeliers and London food and wine experts.

“Apparently, we were visited by an anonymous inspector,” Mario said. We have no idea when that was, but the under-cover reviewer must have enjoyed the experience.”
