The neighbourhood deli turned up a notch.

For more than two decades, Alimentari has been satisfying deli cravings in the inner north with coffee, salads and paninis stacked with succulent meat from its rotisserie plus plenty of quality cheese and charcuterie. The popular Fitzroy staple expanded to its Smith Street location back in 2013, as demand for its signature take home meals and dishes grew.

The menu is extensive and well rounded — running from brekkie favourites like smashed avo ($18.50) and sweet corn fritters ($20), to paninis, wraps, salads and deli plates, to larger dishes of wood-roasted cauliflower ($22) and linguine calamari ($26) — and this place can stock your pantry, too.

Stop by for a slice of cake and an espresso, cold-pressed juice or cheeky cocktail, and head home with essentials like stocks, sauces and polenta, plus a pork and fennel lasagne or eggplant parmigiana to feed the whole family.
