Elgano Italian Restaurant & Guest House

Eating OutAccommodation


Having featured the award winning Italian restaurant downstairs in the book, which it has to be said, is one of the best Italian restaurants in Wales, I couldn’t not endorse the amazing rooms they have available in their guest house. A huge amount of money has been spent on the guest rooms here at Elgano and no expense has been spared to give you the best nights sleep you’ve had in a while. Having only a handful of rooms and in fairness to the owners, I would always recommend booking directly and in advance, to save disappointment. I can’t talk about this guest house and not talk about their breakfast. Served in the orangery part of their restaurant, I couldn’t think of having breakfast anywhere better. Using locally sourced meats and eggs, along with a selection of fruits and yogurts, this will most certainly set you up for your day.


Located on one of Cardiff’s most popular roads, Cathedral Road, Elgano is only a very short walk from the city centre. Being directly from Sicily, there is no wonder why husband and wife team Simona & Carlo, along with their acclaimed chef Pietro have been voted one of Wales’s best Italian restaurants. This award winning restaurant has combined a selection of Italy’s most authentic dishes and infused them with locally sourced produce, what’s not to love about that. The Italians are world renowned for their architecture and for this very reason, I absolutely loved the stylish decor here and in true Italian style, there’s no rushing you from your table, you can take as long as you like, that’s the Italian way! As we're on the subject of style, they have a small number of guest rooms also, so if you're also looking for somewhere to stay, look no further.
