Calgary's Littlest Italy

Since 1993

Who is Peppino?

We are a family owned and operated Italian eatery, with over 80 years of combined culinary knowledge in the food industry. We have been providing our customers with solutions for catering, homemade meal options, and daily dine-in or take-out meals for the past 19 years. Whether you come down for a fresh Italian sandwich, or to stock up on our homemade sauces and pastas, you can always rest assured that our products are made fresh and with love from our kitchen to yours.

Peppino was founded on the principles of providing good quality products at reasonable prices. Joe Lecce opened the doors to Peppino’s in May 1993, offering only nine sandwiches and a handful of groceries. But he had a dream. Today, with his family, that dream is coming true. Peppino has expanded to offer more than 42 fresh Italian sandwiches (made to order) and 200+ fresh/frozen homemade products. We also provide full corporate and private catering, offer fine imported cheeses and meats, and stock only the best olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars that Italy has to offer. We have passion, enthusiasm and an undivided love for the products that we produce and the customers that consume them.

If you’re looking for inspiration, advice, or just the comfort of simple Italian fare, we invite you to come on down to Peppino’s Italian Deli in Kensington, say “ciao” and let us help you take home a little piece of Italy!
