We use our grandmothers recipes and we adapt them to a quality restaurant.»
“A new concept of high quality Italian fast food and street food that proposes regional delicacies in order to pamper you” is the slogan of the restaurant. «We chose Berlin because it is the perfect city to launch a new brand with this mentality, even more curious and hard to please as regards good cuisine.» Vizio Italiano is the first experiment, but the owner’s aim is to open other places in the other European metropolitan areas. «Italian culinary culture is too precious to remain in Italy, it worth to be exported all over the world.»
