Lina Stores takes its name from the original founder “Lina”, a formidable lady from Genova who established the delicatessen in 1944. Over 75 years later, we still sell authentic Italian produce and make fresh pasta and sandwiches on site every day. From cured meats to cheeses to antipasti, we aim to offer our guests the best that Italy has to offer.
On Wednesday 18th March we closed our restaurants in King’s Cross and Soho in accordance with government advice. Our original deli in Brewer Street and our new deli in King’s Cross remained open in order to provide food for the local communities.⠀
As of 21st March we have decided to close all our locations for now. We have also temporarily ceased trading on Deliveroo. Our first commitment is to the safety and well-being of our staff – they have all been sent home to be with their families and try and relax after a stressful few weeks.⠀
We are very busy working on some exciting new delivery concepts which we hope to launch in the coming weeks. We want to make sure that we continue to provide food to our local communities, but we need to do that in a way that makes our staff feel safe, comfortable and respected.⠀
Please bear with us and check back for updates.
We cater for any London-based events and provide a selection of our Italian meats, cheeses, antipasti and sandwich platters. Get in touch for any specific needs and we’ll come up with a bespoke offering for you.
Treat yourself or your loved ones to our handmade pasta, antipasti, secondi and desserts to eat in or take home from any of our Lina Stores locations. Or choose from our range of Italian products from our deli, take fresh pasta home or sample the finest quality salumi or formaggi from our display.
We are recruiting for a variety of roles in our deli, including Pasta Chefs and Shop Assistants. If you’re passionate about providing great hospitality and love being surrounded by dedicated and talented colleagues, send us your CV below.
In these difficult times, it’s more important than ever to support those in need. We have created a donation page to help provide free food for Londoners who desperately need it, including hospitality staff, who have been made redundant, and those in at risk groups. 100% of the funds raised will be spent on supplies and staff to produce the food and we will be providing regular updates with how many people we have fed. ⠀
We want to look after London – the same community which has supported us for over 75 years. Please donate what you can, there are many people who are without jobs and at risk as a result of this global crisis.⠀
Grazie a tutti,⠀
The Lina Stores family.
