From grabbing a pizza after work to enjoying a burger while curled up on the sofa, a Norwich Market stall has you covered.

Shpendi Koci, 34, opened Italian Street Food last March and after a quiet start due to lockdown he had a busy summer when everything opened up again.

Mr Koci serves Neapolitan-style pizzas alongside chicken and beef burgers, made with homemade marinades, patties and buns.

He moved to Norwich from Albania seven years ago and has worked in many pizza and burger restaurants and also taught himself Italian from watching TV.

Mr Koci said: "Delivery is going well and is improving every week.
