Family Run Business

Discover Our Story

Jayne and Adriano Orindi opened the shop in 1990 as an Italian Deli. Adriano came from a family restaurant background and had the food knowledge and vision whilst Jayne had attended Kingston University, so chose the site and handled the admin side.

The business took off, but they quickly realised that the takeaway food aspect was the way to go and changed it from a deli to a sandwich bar in the early 90s.

Sadly, Adriano fell ill in 1996 and was unable to work anymore. Jayne decided to carry on alone and, with a small team, kept Orindi’s going for many years even through challenging times – a major fire in 2009 almost spelt the end for the business.

The ‘Old’ and the New – Jayne and Roberto

Jayne and Adriano’s eldest daughter, Daniela, met Roberto in Italy in 2010. He moved from Naples to England and came to work at Orindi’s in early 2011. Roberto brought his passion for food and hard work ethic to the business.

At the beginning of 2018, Daniela and Roberto took over, keeping the shop well and truly in the family. Roberto looks after the day-to-day running of the shop and is always cooking up new, exciting dishes inspired by his Neopolitan upbringing and Sicilian roots. His passion shines through his food. Daniela is behind the scenes and runs the admin side from home.

When the pandemic hit at the start of 2020, it was devasting to so many in our industry, but Roberto fought hard and quickly adapted to meet the ever-changing demand. He stocked up again on fresh Italian produce and was whizzing around the local area delivering to all. He also built up a fresh ‘meals at home’ menu with homemade lasagnas, pizza kits and more.

Throughout the pandemic, the deli really did a 360 turn back to its origins and is once again truly authentic Italian Delicatessen stuffed with original Italian produce and continuing as a cafe and an ever-growing catering service in the local area.
