The Amazing Calabrisella Team

Calabrisella Cathays

We are 3 business partners, Salvo, Angelo and Domenico. Our story began back in Italy where we met at high school and became good friends ever since. We then came to Cardiff to learn English and 9 years later… Calabrisella came to life! All our staff is from Italy, with great experience within the catering industry. When you walk inside our restaurants, we want you to feel like you are in Italy.
