Square Meal Review of Il Calcio ?

The first London outing for chef/restaurateur Valentino Salagean, who runs a 10-strong chain of Italian eateries in Bucharest under the Il Calcio banner, this recent arrival on the Mayfair scene offers a comprehensive run through the archetypal trattoria repertoire. Bruschetti, carpaccios, tartares and assorted antipasti give way to pasta, risottos, grills and familiar main courses, with standouts including bresaola della Valtellina with rocket and goats’ cheese, polenta with porcini and homemade sausages, sea bream baked in a salt crust and veal escalopes with capers, olives and roasted peppers. A well-presented regional Italian wine list provides ample support, while the dining room is a warm, inviting space done out with gold walls, crimson velvet chairs, banquettes and wooden floors.
