The Castro's newest Italian restaurant Vico Cavone officially opens this weekend in the former Firewood space at 4248 18th Street, after two weeks of a soft opening. Co-owner Alessandro Raimondi tells Hoodline that Vico Cavone will be hosting a grand opening on Sunday from 11 a.m until 3 p.m. Hoodline broke the news in June that Vico Cavone would be taking over the former Firewood space.
