Their business Angelina’s Deli ( named after Anthony’s much-loved mama Angelina) has been open two years in May, and from the very start, has set the pace as local suppliers of the very best quality imported and homecured European food.
Angelina’s Deli, located in The Precinct at I dalia’ s Fairfield Waters, follows in the successful and longrunning footsteps of Anthony’s mother’s cafe, Angelina’s Fine Food, now in its 11th year in the Annandale Shopping Centre, and is not to be confused with the former Angelini’s restaurant l ocated right next door to Anthony’s business in the Fairfield Waters shopping centre, which changed hands mid-last year and has been
Spanish prosciutto, taralli biscuits, smoked wagyu roast beef, toasted bread with a balsamic and oil mix, dukka,
and kalamata olives re-named Ciabatta.
Confused yet . . .?! Don’t be – because once you walk t h r o u g h t h e d o o r s o f Angelina’s Deli, you won’t ever forget the name or location again.
And it is the strong and cohesive f amily el ement w h i c h I n g h a m - b o r n Anthony, 27, reckons has been the secret to the success of both family businesses – mother Angelina and dad Alfio, along with brother S a n d y a n d s i s t e r - i n - l a w Bridget, run the Annandale cafe, while he and wife Lauren oversee their booming Fairfield Waters business.
