The honour is presented to Italian entrepreneurs and professionals who have shown over 20 years of excellence in industry, agriculture, commerce or crafts – originally established in 1901 by Vittorio Emanuele III, a former King of Italy.

Giovanna received the award in a ceremony held last week, in a moment made special with 3 generations of her family in attendance, including her mother, an Italian immigrant whose journey took her from Italy to Brazil, Lyon, and finally Glasgow.

Eusebi Deli has become an institution for authentic Italian dining at its West End base just outside of Kelvingrove Park, with Giovanna taking control of the business alongside her brother Eddie from their parents who began the endeavour over four decades ago.

The Eusebi family were originally farmers in southern Italy, before eventually ending up in Glasgow, starting the small family-run deli 40 years ago.

It’s been a firm favourite in the West End for four decades - with all the produce imported directly from Italy.
