Named after the Sicilian town known to many from The Godfather, and displaying an entranceway flanked by figures of Sicilian gangsters, Corleone is a gem of a restaurant, hidden on a quiet side street in Krakow's Old Town, with a decidedly southern Italian flavour. From the warm tones of the décor to the warm blends of spices on the menu, you will feel yourself transported to southern climes.
Corleone is by no means a newcomer on the Italian restaurant scene, and has established a faithful following among locals and visitors alike, aiming to please even the most particular of palates. Perhaps the reason for this is its broad yet carefully selected menu. Guests can choose from delectable pasta dishes featuring Corleone's own in-house pastas, meat dishes richly garnished, and seafood that could include anything from oysters to mussels to octopus - the chef has free reign when it comes to experimenting with and perfecting the menu. You may wish to try a beef sirloin with foie gras and truffles, or duck with figs and honey; pasta choices include rich varieties of taste like creamy eggplant ravioli or fettuccine with roasted duck and rosemary; and desserts like apple pie in caramel sauce or creme brulee with plum. The wine list displays mainly top-quality Italian labels, with a few nods overseas.
The quiet, cozy rooms provide the perfect atmosphere for a quiet conversation, a special dinner, or even a working lunch, as the restaurant is equipped with Wi-Fi. The mottled yellows and blues of the walls, light wood furniture, rough vases of lavender that accentuate the muted golden tones, and a veritable barricade of wine fitted into the woodwork create a slower, calmer world removed from the hassle of the busy city. In summer, a pleasant garden is open, complete with heavy beams sloping over the narrow courtyard, hanging lanterns and creeping vines. And Thursdays offer live music to add another layer to Corleone's Sicilian ambiance.
