Amaretto Delicatessen in Norwich has been praised for its quality food and authenticity at the English Italian Awards.
Located on St Georges Street, the deli beat out competition from hundreds of other businesses to be shortlisted in the Best Deli/Cafe and Best Team categories.
Held on October 15, the glitzy event saw Amaretto take runner-up for Best Deli/Cafe.
Originally from Empoli in Tuscany, owner Fabrizio Fiaschi has been living in Norwich for 15 years with his wife and daughter. He opened Amaretto eight years ago, having bought Espresso, the general store.
Mr Fiaschi said: 'Amaretto Delicatessen is delighted to have won runner-up for this national award.
