About Capo Caccia Fine Food

We started our business in 2012 so that we could bring our love of traditional Sardinian food to London. We regularly travel throughout Sardinia meeting cheese producers, butchers and farmers and sourcing the finest regional staples to bring a unique range of charcuterie and cheese to London. We sell the finest Pecorino cheese, Ricotta Mustia a smoked dried Ricotta alongside Pane Carasau, a traditional Sardinian flatbread. We often sell out of our popular range of gluten and lactose-free salami seasoned with fennel, myrtle leaves and sun dried chilli and marinated in red and white wine. Another hit with meat lovers is Mustela a traditional southern Sardinia cured pork loin, and Bottarga, a wonderful fish roe known as Sardinian caviar that can be added to pasta or shaved directly on to vegetables as a starter. You’ll find us across London at the finest food markets and you can also find our charcuterie and cheese at restaurants and food shops across London.
