The so-called “closed pizza”, the Italian calzone

Spring is coming and it takes drowsiness and lazyness with it. Don’t you want to cook? Then come to Leoncini Restaurant for a warm calzone.

The calzone is an Italian typical specialty of the South cooking. It is a distant relative of pizza, in fact it is often described as a “closed pizza”. The big dumpling of yeast-based dough contains a filling of various kinds and its ingredients discern one regional recipe from another: while the traditional one uses the classic ingredients of the Margherita, the one from Puglia has a filling of olives, onions and cheese.

In our menu you can find a calzone with a filling of tomato, mozzarella cheese, raw and mushrooms! Take a look at our menu!
