Italia Deli Cooks Up Authentic Flavors of Italy

Family owned and operated Italia Deli & Bakery, located just over the hill in Agoura, at 5657 Kanan Road, is a full-service Italian deli that has offered homemade and imported Italian delicacies since 1981.
Each day starts early, with Italian rolls, breads and pastries baked fresh each day from scratch.
“Get them hot! Get them early!” is the welcome regulars get when they arrive at Italia Deli in morning.
If it’s lunchtime, customers might be asked if they are hungry for a sandwich and be advised try one on a “hard” roll.
Italia Deli is famous for its handcrafted sandwiches, piled high with Boar's Head brand turkey and ham cold cuts, prosciutto di parma, mortadella, and Italian cheeses.
The deli also offers a full menu of salads, antipasto and pasta dishes that include homemade meat or spinach lasagna; cannelloni and manicotti stuffed with beef or ricotta; Italian pork sausage cooked with peppers and onions; succulent pasta al forno, layered with rigatoni pasta, mozzarella, meat, ricotta, egg and sauce; ravioli, penne, rotelle, tortellini fettuccini and ravioli with butter and parmigiano, marinara or Alfredo sauce.
Vegetarians might opt for a hot eggplant parmigiana sandwich, a bowl of fresh minestrone,  or a salad with pear, gorgonzola and walnuts, or lettuce, Bulgarian feta cheese, tomatoes, Greek olives, onions and pepperoncini.
The shop stocks a wide range of imported Italian groceries, including durum wheat pasta, imported San Marzano tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, 25-year-old balsalmic vinegar from Modena, olives, reggiano parmigiano, aged soresina provolone, pecorino romano, fresh carprese, beers, wines, chocolates, candies and much more.
Hot and cold catering is also available, as are customized antipasto platters, and no visit to Italia Deli is complete without a hand-filled cannoli. They also make a New York-style cheesecake and spectacularly light and crisp sfogliatelle pastry.
If someone is dreaming of those Italian delis in New York, then the folks at Italia Deli promise“to take you back.”
Italia Deli is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m., Saturdays, 9 a.m. -5 p.m., and Sundays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information call them at 818-991-4838 or visit their website:
