Tucked in the Grand Arcade of St David’s Centre 2 in Cardiff is a little taste of Italy. Ciliegino Italian Restaurant is a small chain of Italian restaurants, with locations in Sicily, and surprisingly, Cardiff. Ciliegino strives to make every Italian dish as authentic as possible containing raw ingredients all the way from Italy.
The restaurants are all placed in shopping centres, aiming to provide good quality food for any time of the day. We recently spent the evening at Ciliegino, to experience a slice of Sicily in the heart of Cardiff City Centre.
We were seated in their simple but stylish restaurant to peruse the menu. To start, Ryan and I both went for the Chicken wings served with the Chef Fernando sauce which really completed the wings, Sweet with a Tangy sauce.
For our main course, I had the; Tagliatelle Also Scoglio , I was pleasantly surprise I wasn’t left short of the seafood , there was plenty . Ryan had the steak, cooked to medium rare perfection, served with chips on the side.
Even though we were getting really full we couldn’t help but to taste the Ciliengino Pizza , Smothered with Buffalo mozzarella , Cherry tomatoes and Palma Ham. This was cooked with beautiful fresh ingredients and to perfection , How can you be taken back to Italy and not taste their special dishes.
We finished with some profiteroles, this was a prefect end to such a lovely meal
Ciliegino Restaurant is a delicious slice of Italy, in the unexpected location of the St David’s Shopping Centre 2 in Cardiff. They also offer lunch and dinner deals, making the restaurant a great place to grab a bite to eat between meetings or on a lunch break, a even date night.
Will most certainly be visiting again when we are in Cardiff Next .
