Calabrisella has been opened since 2nd November 2014. The meaning of Calabrisella is the original traditional Women's costume from the Calabria region of the Italian Republic. We are based in Canton which was where we first set up when we arrived in Cardiff about 10 years ago. An area that we found very friendly, close to the City centre, with a diverse range of shops and restaurants. These favourable factors made it ideal to set up Calabrisella in Canton.
Calabrisella Cardiff has 3 partners, Salvo, Angelo and Domenico whose story began back in Italy where they met at high school and have been good friends ever since. They came to Cardiff to learn English and 10 years later..... Calabrisella came to life!
Our staff have great experience within the catering Industry in Italian food.. Our aim for you to be able to feel that you are in Italy when you walk through our doors because of the way our friendly staff attend to you. Our head chef Domenico is a fully qualified, very knowledgeable and diverse chef with ears of experience gained from working all over Italy. His passion is food and one of the things that makes him proud is being able to offer customers the opportunity to taste his specialities and diverse dishes from all over Italy.
