At the Il Calandrino Restaurant, the Alajmo Family Bistrot with Chef Massimiliano Alajmo.

During my staying in Italy in December I decided to try the Alajo Family cuisine. I have to thank Matteo and Cristina, who were my fellow travellers in this December evening at the Calandrino. ā€Il Calandrinoā€ is the bistrot versiono.

ā€Il Calandrinoā€ is the bistrot versiono of the Michelin Star Restaurant ā€œLe Calandreā€, where Chef Massimiliano Alajmo presents more easy way and less complicated dishes and where the customer still can find the quality but on a more convenient price.

The restaurant is very cosy and the floor staff pampers you each course, and the kitchen follows the clientele with skills and professionalism.

Honestly I was expecting something more in terms of quality but I have to say that the price was definitely affordable and reasonable.

“I want to thank Chef Alajmo for the gracious welcome and I promise that I will come back with a different mind..”

A suggestion to all professionals is to buy the new Alajmo Bothersā€™ cookbook called ā€œFluiditĆ ā€. Somehow it does not exceed the level of the previous one ā€œIngredientiā€ but it offers great ideas for those who want to make quality a motto in the kitchen.
