Editor's review

A very pleasant Italian that actually feels more Latin than most efforts. You'll find it secreted away in the Pugetow Palace complex, just a couple of minutes walk from the Main Post Office. Settle into the rustic interior for a taste of some classic Mediterranean fare. All the favouites are up for grabs, from Carpaccio to Saltimbocca, as well as a good range of pastas. Il Calzone also does a fine line in pizzas. Prices are reasonable and the flower-bedecked summer garden makes for an inviting retreat from the hustle and bustle.

Wczoraj z rodzinką byłem na obiedzie - wszystkim bardzo smakowało, tak przystawki, desery, a zwłaszcza dania główne - widać klasę. Przyjemne miejsce i fajna obsługa. Wyszliśmy zachwyceni! Na pewno wrócimy.

THis is place is a little gem around 10mins from the main square. The soups were delicous and the lasagne was lovely. Everyone was happy with the food, drinks and the service. We made sure to leave a tip as they deserved it. You really cant go wrong, as good as italians get.

Il Calzone is centrally located just off the main thoroughfare - Starowisna - that leads to the market square. It has the benefit of both indoor and outdoor seating. We had the pleasure of dining in the garden area. Good food, good service, good value. An excellent selection of wines and the food was very very good. Highly recommend this restaurant. Would suggest making a reservation.

My wife and I were in this restaurant last week and it was brilliant. A superb menu, some of which was quite inventive and the food was excellent. We ate a three course meal with wine, ending with Krupnick, for just over £40. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. They had the knack of giving you space and presented a very unrushed atmosphere allowing suficient time to both choose from the menu and chat between courses. Do try the panna cotta, it's heaven!! If you are in Kracow do visit this restaurant, I do not think you will be disappointed.

This place was amazing. Service was first class and the food was lovely! The "tagliata di manzo" is a must as well as the salmon with vegetables!

Sincere apologies. I meant to score Il Calzone 5/5.

Craig Briggs from United Kingdom Reply May 21st, 2008

My mushroom porcelini tortelli was absolutely superb and the house wine i found both reasonable and tasteful. Also to the man who said pizzas didnt deserve to be on the menu - he must live on another planet as both my siblings enjoyed theirs very much and they have lived in Italy for many years.

Kristin from United States Reply Oct 31st, 2006

Very good meal at a reasonable price. The calzone was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Dave Richards from United States Reply May 19th, 2006

Just ate a delightful meal on their outside patio. Off the main road, so quite quiet. Pizza was good although proscuitto (on the menu) was delivered as regular ham. My wife enjoyed the spaghetti with porcini mushrooms. The pana cotta with blackberries was a great finish! And all for a reasonable price!
