Mastrantonio’s latest project, Mastro deli, is a veritable wonderland of gourmet goods that’s sure to pique the palates of every Joburg gourmand. The impeccably curated space is divided into different sections, creating a market-like setup where each counter showcases its specific offering.
The deli station is packed with a mouth-watering array of ready-made Italian dishes which can be enjoyed on the deli terrace or packed up to be taken home. At the sandwich station, woven baskets are stacked full of gorgeous, leavened loaves, waiting to be filled with a scrumptious selection of the very best imported cheeses, charcuterie, in-house made pickles, and fresh greens. The coffee counter and gelato bars are not to be missed and the deli shelves are packed with the most stunning products, both imported and local.
Plus, owners Paolo, Gianni, Susan, and their families are on hand to offer advice on everything — nothing is too much effort.
