A Taste of Emilia- Delicious Deli in Dublin

This is not your average Dublin Deli. A  Taste of Emilia transports you to Italy without having to step on an airplane! A few months ago, I discovered this little delicious Italian Deli/Salumeria and Wine Bar in Dublin. (Salumeria is a place that sells cured meats.) It is the closest taste to Italy you will find in the city centre. Located on Liffey Street Lower, beside the Ha’penny bridge (across from Temple Bar),  it has some seats outside and a few tables and chairs inside.

Always busy, this little deli and wine bar is the perfect place to enjoy a bellini(a Prosecco cocktail with peach puré, priced at €5.50) and a bruschetta for a brunch or lunch with some friends. I had a similar style bruschetta in Sorrento two summer’s ago. I was surprised how traditional and tasty this one was. The bruschetta is around €7 and will fill your stomach for the rest of the day!

Named after the region Emilia-Romagna in Italy, the owner fell in love with Ireland a few years ago on a visit, and decided to open this little place two years ago. She said she wanted to introduce Dubliners to some of her favourite snacks from her region.

This is the most authentic Italian snacking spot in Dublin with friendly Italian staff.  The menu offers a wide range of bruschette, paninis and traditional taglieri, which are platters of cold cuts (ranging from  €15-20). Today’s special was buffalo mozzarella with Parma ham priced at €13.

 There are postcards on the wall from friends and customers from all over the world.
