Lina Stores

Brewer Street

Soho, London

Established in 1944, we’ve been trading out of 18 Brewer Street in the heart of Soho, London for over 75 years!

We take our name from our original founder “Lina”, a formidable lady from Genova who established the delicatessen back in 1944. Over 75 years later, we still sell high-quality, authentic produce and ingredients imported straight from Italy, including fresh, homemade pasta and panini. From cured meats to cheeses to antipasti, we aim to offer our guests the best that Italy has to offer.

Fresh, handmade pasta and homemade Sauces

Our delicatessen is the perfect place to stock up on quality Italian ingredients and pantry essentials, but we are well-known for our fresh, handmade pasta and homemade sauces. We have been making fresh, handmade pasta since we first opened in 1944 and have been providing Soho businesses and restaurants with our pasta for over seven decades.

With an everchanging selection of shapes available, we update our pasta shapes seasonally, so we use the best possible ingredients year-round. Using Italian flour, free-range eggs, water and Italian olive oil for the freshest dough, we always respect traditional pasta recipes but also get creative with discovering new ingredients and experimenting with different shapes of pasta. For example, our Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli have been in our pasta display since we first opened our doors in 1944 and are one of our most popular pasta shapes. Seasonal favourites like Burrata Ravioli in spring and summer or Pumpkin Ravioli make an appearance too as do classic long and short shapes, including Linguine and Pappardelle, and Paccheri and Casarecce.

You can find our fresh pasta and sauces for nationwide in our online shop too.

From Breakfast to Aperitivo

Our Brewer Street delicatessen has a daily selection of homemade, fresh Italian items available to go. Enjoy our selection of cakes and pastries with a strong Italian coffee or take cooked pasta, salads or panini for lunch to go. At night, join us for a glass of wine or venture downstairs to Bar Lina for a cocktail and bar snacks from the delicatessen.

Salumi and Formaggi

With over 40 different types of salumi and formaggi on offer, our meat and cheese counter is fully stocked with the best products from each region, making for endless possibilities for a satisfying Italian dinner at home. Our salumi selection includes classics like Prosciutto di Parma DOP straight from the Parma area with a salty, yet slightly sweet aftertaste. Other guest favourites include San Daniele DOP, an 18-month matured ham from Friuli Venezia Giulia and a wonderfully sweet peppercorn Salame Felino from Emilia Romagna. We also stock Italian cheeses, including crowd pleasers like Parmigiano Reggiano DOP and Burrata but also lesser-known specialty cheeses like Gorgonzola DOP Al Cucchiaio DOP, a soft, extra creamy blue cheese from Piemonte, and Caciottona di Capra al Fieno from Veneto, an organic goat’s milk Caciottona matured under hay.
