5 reviews of Balzano Belicatessen in English
My score is an average of 5 stars for the cafe and 1 star for the deli.
I used to use Balzano’s when ever I was in Cambridge but the younger woman has been seriously offensive to me and my daughter when we have been in there. I am not sure who they think they are or what they think they are doing but I expect it to be out of business in a very short space of time unless they have a good hard look at what they are doing. I then did go to Limoncello and it was ok, nothing to write home about and it was expensive, but they weren’t rude and I didn’t feel like the proprietor was about to initiate a fight with me. Very strange. I suggest if you have time and need cheese, meats and pasta go to the shops in Peterborough, they were lovely, chatty and although it is not good for everyone, it is better than Tesco or Waitrose or any of those others with their sweaty package products.
I would like to strongly disagree with the comments posted by seb1980.
Limoncello is good if you have lots of pennies in your pocket! its expensive....Balzano's is an authentic deli serving the well settled local Italian community and everyone else....It has a fantastic bakery where bread is still baked every day and supplier to a host of restaurants and food outlets,and food shops ......
A freind of mine went in there the other day and asked for some Parma Ham, the woman serving him proceeded to cut small slices from the ham - My friend, noticed the woman slicing short slices, so he asked for long slices for his melon, but the woman turned round and said that if he wanted long slices he should go to a supermarket and buy it in a packet! - Not very professional ...
With its bright lights and the business-like attitude of its staff, Balzano's lacks the charm and joie-de-vivre of its competitor, Limoncello. But if you are on Cherry Hinton Rd, can't be bothered to walk to Limoncello, and find yourself in desperate need of assorted sliced meats, pastas and other deli material, this is your place.
