Camisa's Deli

Cristina Onuta and Mattia Perlino, the last 2 full time empoyees at Camisa's Deli. Cristina Onuta has been working at the deli for nearly 24 years and Mattia Perlino has been at the deli for 12 years. Camisa's Deli in Soho is closing after decades of being one of the most recognisable food shops in Soho. I Camisa & Son has been in the city centre for over 90 years. Originally opened in 1929, brothers Ennio and Isidoro Camisa ran London's first real Italian food store. During the second world war, many Italian immigrants in the UK were detained and held in camps, including the two brothers. This sadly meant their original deli at 66 Old Compton Street had to close down. in 1948, the two Camisas returned to Soho. For many years they ran a store on 1 Berwick Street before parting ways. Isidro relocated back to Old Compton Street in 1961, at number 61.
