About Valvona & Crolla

We warmly welcome you to our web site and online shop.

From market stall to dot com, we now serve the nation from our original premises in Edinburgh. We are Scotland's oldest Delicatessen and Italian Wine Merchant; one of Europe's original Specialist Food Shops, founded in 1934. From our humble beginnings, serving the fledgling immigrant Italian community in old Edinburgh, we now list food products and wines from around the world, and supply the entire UK with an efficient, speedy delivery system that boasts a next-day service to 95% of the population.

We are an independent family business - free to place before you new and exciting products together with our more traditional food and wine. Our roots are firmly planted in tradition - our growth is nourished by technology - our future lies in the pursuit of ever increasing quality, value and service in all that we do.

In the online shop you will find Italian fruit and veg, cakes and biscuits, and an extensive range of cheese, champagne, cookery books, coffee, tea, kitchenware, pasta, rice, salami, sausages, oil, vinegar, port, dessert wine, whisky and wine - lots of wine!

We hold tastings and cookery demonstrations in our Caffè Bar & Restaurant throughout the year. We also have an on-site gift room and book shop which is converted into a 70 seat theatre during August to become a venue in the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival.

Do not hesitate to email us from the contact page with any enquiry or problem.
Best wishes and thank you for your custom.
