Bigoli sells rich Italian sandwiches, fresh (pasta) salads and wonderfully aromatic espresso’s or cappuccino’s. Everything can be order to-go. The sandwiches are made with the most delicious Italian cheeses and hams: mozzarella, goat cheese, cabrales or cambozola, Parma or nut ham, but also for instance, creamy tuna salads. Not only do you pick your own toppings, you also choose your own roll. An olive ciabatta, or its sundried tomato version, a focaccia…anything goes. All sandwiches are covered with a scented olive oil and usually dressed with fresh tomatoes or arugula.
Sandwich shop Bigoli is an extension of the deli across the road. This is where are the wonderfully fresh ingredients come from. Whatever you choose, your toppings will be spread royally on your roll. The rolls are freshly made daily and prepared on the spot. Your own personal directions are more than welcome. The shop does not have a permit for tables, so all sandwiched have to be taken out. On your way out, you are likely to pass a queue of wainting, hungry people, because ‘Utrecht’s best sandwiches’ are quite popular. It is obvious to see why.
Bigoli is always wonderfully busy. It has more of an Italian feel to it. The clientele divers, and consists of a lot of students, especially during the week. The employees are friendly and moreover, very fast, which is a big help, considering the large amount of people walking in and out.
