A TASTE of the continent can now be found in Darlington after a new Italian deli opened its doors.

Freshly made lasagne, homemade bread, and authentic Italian desserts are just some of the delicacies on offer at Little Foffano’s Deli, in the Victorian covered market.

The deli is run by Stefano and Emma Foffano, the husband-and-wife team behind Foffano’s, a popular Italian restaurant in Darlington market square.

Also on offer are products sourced directly from Italy, as well as pasta sauces made at the restaurant using locally sourced ingredients.

Mrs Foffano, said: “There are so many good things we can get at the restaurant and now people can take them home.

“It gives me the chance to get creative as well.

“We have had such good support from everyone - it has been lovely to see.”

She added: “It is nice to know where your food is coming from and we know exactly where our products have come from.”

The deli, which has taken the place of a florist’s in the covered market, was officially opened by Darlington’s mayor and mayoress, Gerald and Ruth Lee.

Councillor Lee said: “It is brilliant for Darlington – it is a quality little business, with quality food.”
