DISCOVER / A day in the life at Olive and Rosy


A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to work with the wonderful Robin at Orbit Photography who helped us to capture a few hours of shop life in our little Italian delicatessen.

We know we are a little off the beaten track in Wellington, tucked away in our little courtyard on North Street but we think it is worth the extra addition to the daily step count for this piece of Italy sealed between four small walls. Here is a little taste of some of what we offer...


italian espresso, moka, take away coffee

The day begins calmly with a Moka on the stove for our earliest customers to enjoy Italian style at the counter, upstairs whilst perusing a copy of Italian Vogue in our style boutique or al fresco on a fine day.

Next up we have a gentleman returning with a bottle to be filled at our Wine-on-Tap counter. Something that is very important to us is finding as many ways as possible to run our business sustainably and with the minimum of waste. Any bottle can be filled here and discounts are given for re-use.

Customers are always welcome to try before they buy, from a range of North East Italian reds and whites. Particular favourites are the Malbec and Raboso.
