On 1 June 1989, Giovanni’s Deliworld opened its doors for the first time by a young and ambitious 25-year-old, Giovanni Esposito. Situated in the heart of Green Point, Giovanni’s began as a small yet homely deli, offering fresh meals, local breads, cheeses and charcuterie.
After two years, Giovanni’s expanded and incorporated a coffee bar into the deli, which added extra European flair, creating a place where you can relish in your daily ritual of grabbing your morning espresso, croissant and conversation before heading to work.
The concept of the upmarket delicatessen is all about familiarity. Come and indulge in beautiful home-cooked meals such as pasta, traditional meat and vegetable dishes, and end it off with the occasional sweet treat.
The foundation of this Cape Town institution could not have been made possible without unconditional support from his family. Giovanni opened shop with his wife Sharon and his brother Nic by his side, and his mama Rosa always helping out in the kitchen.
Being ten years his junior, Nicolas would help out at Giovanni’s over weekends and during school holidays. At the tender age of 18, he started working full-time at Giovanni’s and since then, they have owned and run the deli together.
Today, this celebrated deli continues to serve loyal customers with the best imported and locally sourced ingredients, ready-made meals and of course, their famous coffee.
We invite you to come and get lost in the deliciously packed shelves of Giovanni's Deliworld.
Pop in and meet the wonderful staff and indulge to your hearts’ content. We can't wait to share a cuppa with you!
