Adriana is the owner of The Italian Shop, an amazing authentic Italian delicatessen at the end of my street. I go there most weekends to pick up fresh Italian bread, they do the most amazing Sicilian cannoli’s! Much like Steve at Driver Adriana makes you feel at home as soon as you enter the shop, many people staying for a coffee and a chat, sometimes for hours!
Adriana, born to an Italian father opened The Italian shop in 2012 with some money her Nonno had left her after passing away. Recently divorced with two children she wanted to change her life and decided that with the money she would go out and do something with it. When an old butchers shop came up for lease she decided to jump in at the deep end and turn a cold and dreary shop into what is now a lovely authentic Italian food shop and cafe.
