Our story

Welcome to Ciliegino, the Connoisseurs of the Mediterranean Diet In the South of Italy, where Ciliegino was born, the people didn’t own much but they were granted one treasure, a real diamond in the dirt. The ‘diet of the poor’ turned out to be totally rich. It was rich in vitamins, grains and anti-oxidants giving the citizens of Sicily a gift which the rest of the globe didn’t discover… until now. Find us on Facebook here. Follow us on Instagram here.

Ciliegino Italian Restaurant Cardiff St Davids Postcard Story

Ciliegino serves Delicious, Authentic Italian Food and beverages in a Traditional way from 5 different outlets in Italy. In 2017, we opened the doors to our very first British branch based in Cardiff, Wales. The star attraction of our menu is our famous Pizza which is favoured for its flavours, its Lightness and Authenticity. The dough takes 48 hours to prepare before it is placed in the Traditional Pizza Oven which is partially made from the lava of Mount Etna. This is real theatre coupled with real tastes, we do not adapt our ingredients or recipes to cater to different palates – our cuisine is cooked the proper Italian way.
