What's the difference between a stramboli and a calzone?

The way it was explained to me is that a Stromboli has the tomato sauce inside the pocket, while with the calzone the tomato sauce is servered on the side for dipping.

The reason is that Stromboli is named after a famous volcano, and when you bite into a Stromboli, the hot tomato sauce oozes out, like the lava in a volcano. So a true Stromboli should resemble a volcano.

Now I'm Confused: What is a Stromboli and What is a Calzone?

The way it was explained to me is that a Stromboli has the tomato sauce inside the pocket, while with the calzone the tomato sauce is servered on the side for dipping.

The reason is that Stromboli is named after a famous volcano, and when you bite into a Stromboli, the hot tomato sauce oozes out, like the lava in a volcano.

This was how we differentiated them at the Napolitan restaurant where I worked, whidh was run by a Sicilian family.
