This restaurant is in a Hutong..it’s a lovely little restaurant with wonderful Italian food. It’s a great place for a quiet dinner. The owner was attentive and knowledgable about the local area. I would totally recommend this place.

Fresh and delicious food: the bread, the home made pasta, the salad, fish and meat. Yummie deserts as well. Excellent (though a bit pricey) wines. And the place is very cosy and warm. The owner knows what he's talking about. Definitely going back there.

Dear Davide, thank you for sharing your feedback and for recognising that we took care of your wife's special dietary restriction. Just to be clear: our still water is not coming straight from the tap. We installed a set of filters to micro-filter it and...More
Nice environment (like in a village), good selection of Italian wines, but poor quality of meals - all pastas we had were very plain. But these meals were still much better than service - we had to ask for bread, then remind them that we...More
Dear Milo, thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that our service and food was not adeguate to your expectations. Maybe was a night off from our front team or maybe some misunderstanding happened (i.e. our coffee is Italian moka and not espresso so it...More
Nice little Italian restaurant. Food is good, portions are european rather than north american sized, if that matters to you. Prices are good. Menu is small but covers all the bases. If you want some decent Italian food while in Beijing this might be the...More
...of this charming, delicious Italian restaurant. The waiting staff and especially the owner were incredibly friendly and engaging, to the point that I felt I was a regular! Due to the swelteringly hot weather, I chose to go for some simple cold dishes and I'm...More
