Calabrisella open the first restaurant on the 2nd November 2014.

The meaning of Calabrisella is the original folklore woman's costume from the Calabria region. We open our first Restaurant in Canton where was our first home when we all first arrived in Cardiff 10 years ago, and we found it very friendly, close to town, with a diversity of shops and restaurants and therefore we found it ideal to set up Calabrisella.

We are 3 Business partners, Salvo, Angelo and Domenico. Our story began back in Italy where we met at high school and become good friends ever since. We came to Cardiff to learn English and 10 years later… Calabrisella came to life!

All our staff is from Italy, with great experience within the catering industry. Our aim is to when you walk through our doors that our friendly staff makes you feel like you are in Italy.
Our head chef is Domenico, he is a fully qualified and very knowledgeable and diverse chef from years of his experience from working all over Italy, his passion is food and one of things that makes him proud is to be able to offer customer the opportunity to taste his specialities and diversity from all over Italy.

Our clientele are very diverse and we are open from 8.30am till 10pm, and come from all over the place, and range from young children with their families to the older generation.
Our menu ranges from a creamy Italian espresso with one of all our lovely filled croissant, to our English Italian style breakfast to a quick take away panini or you could sit and experience our diverse menu, where you can choose from a real Italian pizza to one of Domenico specialities. Also, a fantastic and traditional arancini and cannoli from Sicily that are loved by our customers.

We are authentic, passionate and pour our hearts into making Calabrisella a success that customer will love to come to experience a bit of Calabria in Cardiff. We are proud to be the first bar/ Pizzeria in Cardiff and our concept is to offer traditional home cooked Italian food and great pizza, with our Pizza maker come all from Italy.
Our decor is simple and rustic with authentic artefacts adding the authenticity from the Calabria region.

We not sell just food but the emotion to feel in Italy. In 2017 we add the CALABRISELLA ON THE ROAD, our mobile Pizza van with a wood burn fired oven, we do a lot of events, birthday party, street food. In 2019 we opened the second restaurant, in Cathays. Cathays is a fantastic part of cardiff with a lot of students.
