il vulcano’s roots…
After moving to the UK from Calabria in 2011, Giovanni and Lauren Colace set up a ‘restaurant on wheels’
– il vulcano.
Why il vulcano? Well, a number of reasons:
- To remind them of the breathtaking view of Stromboli from the family farm.
- Because of ‘nduja – a fiery Calabrian salami we use to create our signature pizza.
- A southern Italian passion for good food.
How could they recreate the authentic taste of Italian pizza in south Devon?
Well, Gianni built a wood-fired brick oven in the back of a van. Besides cooking great pizza, il vulcano’s unique oven attracts attention from passers-by because of its original pebble mosaic, and the leaping flames inside.
When you see our van, you’ll always see a pizziola inside, entertaining our customers and making great pizza.
