On the door leading into the charming delicatessen in Frankfurt's Westend, a sign reads: "Here we cook with love!". And that actually sums up what makes this place so special and therefore so popular. Here you can not only buy fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as many Italian specialties from olive oil to wines, pasta, olives to coffee or Panettone - friendly and competent advice included. No, during the week they also cook for lunch. And what owner Angela Cammarata serves her guests is really incredibly delicious.
While pasta with homemade tomato sauce or pesto are always on offer, the incredibly delicious spinach and gorgonzola lasagne or the tender schnitzel with penne and pesto are particularly convincing among the changing dishes. To start, there's a fresh salad plate that you can dress yourself with vinegar and olive oil. The dishes, which come at more than fair prices, are truly cooked with love. The popular description "It tastes like mummy's" applies here precisely because it is not only delicious, but also because the food is eaten in an absolutely cordial atmosphere.
At bar tables among all the Italian delicatessen offerings or outside in front of the shop, a conviviality quickly develops that is intensified by the very special charm of the shop and its owners. But of course "Onkel Emmo" can score not only with sympathy, also the quality is right - both in the delicatessen offer, as well as at the lunch table. So if you want to cook something really delicious at home and are looking for the right ingredients, or if you want to eat well in a homely atmosphere during your lunch break, you should definitely pay a visit to this Aunt Emma - sorry - Uncle Emmo shop in the Westend.
