Wife and I were in Deluca's buying Italian groceries and popped upstairs to their diner. You pay the cashier for pizza by the slice or a selection of pastas. My wife had a superb farfalle with Alfredo sauce and I had a slice of pepperoni and a slice of margherita pizza, washed down with Italian sodas. Bellissimo! The meals are... More

We had a company party in their downstairs banquet room and were treated like family the moment we entered until we left. This is the best Italian meal I have ever had. Everything was prepared with fresh ingredients right in front of us. We even had a chance to participate in the preparation of all of our food. I really... More

All-you-can-eat pasta, great soups, salads to eat. Service was great, food was amazing and fresh. Being able to purchase the food after was great too. Definitely a perfect spot for a lunch. Literally the only downside is how much seating there is and if it's busy it could be hard to sit down to eat.

First I must start by acknowledging their desire to be not only a specialty shop but also a neighbourhood store. They have everything from produce, to Italian specialties of all fair, wine, kitchen gadgets, desserts, and pastas. BUT they also serve hot lunches upstairs for several hours for cash and typically big portions and good value. Also, their cold line... More

Want the very best Winnipeg has to offer in food then you must try Deluca's. WOW and mama cooks upstairs but downstairs you will find amazing Italian food to cook yourself! Really a treat to visit.

I used to work close to here and would always have lunch on Fridays. Be sure to check their restaurant times prior to going though and I recommend getting there early as seating is usually taken quickly. It's a very easy going atmosphere and if you will fit at another table that is already taken, most people are fine with... More

This business is a Winnipeg landmark - but its reviews almost need to be split up for the different sections - all of which are good. This review deals with the Cooking Class and dinner. It is a wonderful experience I would recommend to anyone. Chef Ana prepares a meal giving a class on each course, the meal is then... More

When driving into Winnipeg, we happened upon De Lucas. We started off wandering through the food store. Amazing selection of Italian goods including fresh meat, cheese and olive oil. Attached to the food store is De Luca's Fine Wines. GREAT wine store. Excellent selection of really interesting wine. The lady that looked after us really knew her stuff. She recommended... More

Tried De Lucas for the first time, the atmosphere is a bit different. Its a grocery store, but the sandwiches are amazing. I had the Italian Hero panini and mm mmm mmm. We left the store with a few cookies and turnovers from the bakery and they were just as great. Great spot to stop and grab lunch to go... More

I come here to get my pizza dough for when I make my pizza's at home. The dough is always consistently tasty and delicious. There is also a great cooking class that you can take as well for a pretty cheap price and you can learn to make great dishes. I have always had helpful and friendly staff that are... More
