The first thing you’ll notice about this place is that it looks like a restaurant out of a movie set in Italy. The décor was pleasing to me. The high ceilings and multiple levels break it up nicely as well. The Italian chef in the back is also straight out of a film, and we feel like he really added to the evening.
We started with a glass of wine (RMB 60) and an Arancino de riso (RMB 70), which was a fried ball of mozzarella cheese, bolognaise sauce, and rice.
We were both feeling pasta that night, but I do recommend their pizzas, salads, and wonderfully cooked meats. The 4 Formaggi (RMB 100) was missing one type of cheese, but they told me about that up front, and I honestly never would have noticed. My friend went for the Gnocchi di patate alla Sorrentina (RMB 90), and she was happy with the classic Italian flavors.
I was a little disappointed with dessert. The Frolla Napoletana (RMB 70) wasn’t really worth it. It was a bit chewy and just didn’t strike my fancy. I always order the cannoli, so I don’t really know what I was thinking.
Average price per person: RMB 250
Summary: Pretty solid Italian spot with a good ambiance, friendly staff and authentic classic food.
