Directions to The Deli
The Deli is a small gourmet restaurant located in Bankastraeti in Reykjavik, and one of the best places in the whole city to grab a quick bite. The Deli offers mediterranian delicacies, cooked and served with passion. The menu has a wide variety of desirable food, such as hot pasta dishes, special made pizzas/slices, hot grilled panini, freshly baked and filled baguettes and pasta salads. It's the perfect place to grab a cheap lunch or dinner.
Sigurdur Thoroddsen is the owner and runner of The Deli, and has had a long career as a pizzaiolo and cook. He's also a big fan of lasagna, which is of course on the menu. But let's begin with the main attraction, the Deli pizza. The pizzas come in two sizes, 12' and 16', and the topping choices are incredibly innovative, fun and tasty. We recommend „Modo Mio', one of the tastiest pizzas in town, topped with spinach, bell pepper, feta and nuts, or „Gamberetti', a heavenly treat of shrimps, spinach, garlic and peppers. You can also buy slices that are sold from the counter if you're in a hurry or just not hungry enough for a whole one. When the pizzas have been baked, they are garnished with garlic oil and extra herbs. Sheer pleasure, and the best part is that every day there is always a special offer on 16' pizzas, making them not only flavoursome, but also cheap!
Over all, the food at The Deli is very affordable. You can get a delicious lasagna with a slice of garlic pizza for 1500ISK, or a savoury baguette with tandoori chicken, tomato, bell pepper, lettuce, teriyaki and herbal yoghurt for 1150ISK. Now, those prices are hard to beat. The food at The Deli is consistantly good, the mood is always light and the staff is always very friendly and willing to meet your needs and preferences.
