Our very first #westieshoutout goes to the fabulous Rocco’s Delicatessen. If you don’t know Rocco, you’re missing out. He runs the Deli on Roberts Street in Yarraville and has done so for 40 years. It’s a perfect little time capsule of Italian goodness; with friendly service, a deli bar and an extensive stock range.

It is also home to the Rocco roll! Which is a freshly made panini by Rocco himself. The best part about the Rocco roll is that you don’t really have to order it. You just pass Rocco your roll of choice, tell him which deli cut you want (always salami 🙌) and he does the rest. You just hang out and admire the shop or have a chat.

The deli is pretty much the central point between our two houses and a firm lunchtime favourite at The Little Collective. Respect to you Rocco, we love your work and truly appreciate your beautiful smile when we stop by. Here’s to many more years of Rocco rolls.
