While not original, it appears reasonably close to what you might have seen 'back in the day.' We have dined at several of the restaurants and the food is good. Nice break from local cuisine when you are 'jonesing' for some regular fare.

Nice to walk around. I believe the buildings were mostly originals but the little paris and London stalls did make it feel a little twee. Good place for photos.

If you are just visiting China and aren't going to be here long, skip this street. However, if you are a Westerner living here for a while, this is a great place to go to get a taste of home. Pricey, yes, but the sheer amount of alfredo, western noodles, and coffee is worth it. Disclaimer: there isn't much to... More

I went there on the afternoon, the atmosphere is quite nice, many european restaurant, european souvenir, etc. It is a good place for a couple to spent a dinner together although the price is not really cheap here, minimum of 100 yuan per person, but it's okay since you already went here.. The street is not really big but quite... More

From reading most other reviews it is clear that Tianjin has spectacularly failed here. Most people don't even seem to realize that this area (it is not just one street, but only one or two streets are commercialized) was actually run by Italy in the first half of the 20th Century. There are loads of interesting buildings if you get... More

Not sure what I was supposed to be looking at here...there were a bunch of restaurants that served just OK food. We got bombarded by people wanting to touch, pick up and pass around our small kids so that ruined a bit of the atmosphere for us I guess. We probably won't go back

This street is quite charming at night, with its European-style architecture and warm white lights. It's one of Tianjin's many reminders of how culturally diverse it's become after, in this case, the Italian concession.

We ate fantastic pizza at the Venezia Restaurant and Club 13 books original Chinese rock and Indie bands. The live music and experience at Club 13 on this street made our trip. Music is from about 9:30 to 11:00 p.m.

I visited the Italian style street in the late evening/night. It was a short stretch of street which you could walk through in 10-15 minutes. There were about 10-20 restaurants, and 2-3 shops. Surprisingly, it was dinner time, yet almost all the restaurants looked empty. The streets were somewhat empty for Chinese standards, and lacked vibrancy. There was nothing much... More

It's Charming. When you are a little bit tired of China and China costumes, it's perfect. All europe buildings, and all europe style. Restaurants and so. It's full of Chinesse tourists, have a lot of europe from europe.
