Welcome to Il Calabrese, Franklyns Yard, Holt. Opened in dedication to my mother, Concetta, who was born in Ciro’ Superior in the province of Calabria. She is a very youthful looking octogenarian who has always been dedicated to her family. We honour her with a taste of Calabria, in Holt!

We use as many local suppliers as possible for our stock ingredients, including our sour dough focaccia bread produced locally by Annie Garcia. The salami and cheeses are of course from Italy, and so are our wonderful Italian wines and spirits. We also source some great amalgamations such as the Sabatini London gin, with Italian botanicals. We shall always seek and find new products to keep il Calabrese an interesting place to visit, and to taste new Italian sensations.

Our Pizza is made in house with Concettas' dough recipe, and cooked fresh to order, our menu will no doubt grow and change as we go along, giving the best possible offering to our customers.

Here at Il Calabrese we want you to have a good time enjoying good wine and good food, in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.  Good service is our maxim, and we shall look forward to welcoming customers returning and new to our little taste of Italy!
