Ciro Salvo will 50 Kalò in Trafalgar Square, his new pizzeria with his historical partner Alessandro Guglielmini. "We got the idea of opening in London a few years ago. Obviously I waited for the right time, I wanted to transfer 50 Kalò's entire identity and to do it correctly I had to think and study the right formula. It is a leap that can be done when one is professionally mature and ready. Opening a pizzeria is easy, but transferring the soul is the most important thing. " declares Ciro Salvo. Salvo who faithfully reproduces his style of pizza good, hydrated and soft. A style that began about 25 years ago that has evolved over time.
The menu will feature many of Salvo's symbolic pizzas: Margherita, 50 Kalò, Montanara; and the famous fried pizza . A wide selection of wines from Campania and Italian craft beers will be available to drink as well as special Champagne list.
During the day, a bar will be open featuring Italian cocktails (Spritz, Negroni, Bellini) for an aperitif or after a meal.
50 Kalo' will be about 200 square meters with 90 seats, in the city center: in the famous Trafalgar Square, one of the hottest locations in London.
What else? A special room so diners can observe the perfect pizza production: from preparation of the dough, hand cutting and rolling the dough into balls, manipulation, cooking and presentation..
