Il CALCIO

New Italian restaurant Il Calcio has just landed on North Audley Street in Mayfair. Currently an established group of Italian restaurants in Bucharest, Il Calcio is the creation of chef patron Valentino Salagean.

Having returned to his native Bucharest, Salagean started up Il Calcio. Originally just a single trattoria, one restaurant soon became a collection of 10 located right across the Hungarian capital and two other cities. […]
