Colleges have ordered salads and I ordered chicken breast with two kinds of mushrooms and baked potatoes. Excellent food! Very... read more

Restaurant located on Barbu Vacarescu boulevard. Italian food on high standard. Even you choose somon bruschette or pasta or beef with rucola,... food taste is great. Make reservation before you go there. Nice staff, posters on inside walls showing well-known sport players,...Romantic place, quiet. Enjoy!

Nice place. Nice service. Mediocre food. Finished drinking with some friends and it was getting late. Just stopped by this place on our way to our apartment. We ordered the vongola and al polo pasta and I find both too salty. The taste of raw garlic was overwhelming in the vongola and the tomato paste tasted like canned paste. Also... More

Based on the reviews we nearly didn't go but my wife and I were both adamant that we wanted to eat somewhere other than in the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area of the old city. I'm glad we did...maybe we got the night with the good chef or perhaps management has kicked the show into line or... More

Nice setting, nice terrace, nice Negroni. After that things went downhill. The bruschetta was really tomatoes on toast - no olive oil, no garlic, no taste. I asked the nice waitress for a glass of red wine and a sparkling water, got a glass of white and a still water. The spaghetti carbonara was heavy on cream but had no... More

This Il Calcio's food depends on a day, I had some great meals there and I had really bad ones. All in all, I can recomend it for a lunch with a friend, but I would not reccomend it for an important business dinner. The meet was always quite good, I have to admit. Wine list is not impressive, especially... More
