Authentic Italian with great rooptop

This is a great place if you've been traveling in China and need a break from Chinese cuisine. The owner is from Italy and very eager to share his story and passion for his restaurant. The handmade fresh gnocchi and ravioli melt in your mouth! He also has a great wine selection including the... read more

All I know is... best gnocchi I have ever had. And Hubby still raves about the pizza. This is a nice break when folks you are traveling with need a little break from Chinese food. Hey, it happens to a lot of us... Gian Luca (co-owner and mgr) may seem a little shwarmy at first. But he is so well... More

It is friendly, professional and really nice environment. Located close to Nanluoguxian Hutong they serve Italian food and the atmosphere is nice and calm. We were three of us at 3 p.m. and they were quite bussy. Fantastic food and great experience.

Four of us visited here during our Beijing city break. The place has a nice atmosphere. The pizzas are fantastic. Thin crisp base with delicious toppings. Very authentic Italian. The Italian boss was helpful but a bit pretentious, even telling us how to sprinkle the herbs on top of the pizza. The feeling was that he was talking down to... More

I've been for the first time in this restaurant last week to celebrate my bestfriend's birthday. It was just great! The food so gnammy, good service and lovely environment. I was feeling like back to Italy because the taste of the food reminded me the Italian traditional flavour. The owner, the Italian guy, is very cool and welcoming; he also... More

Every menu was not available and the waiter did not take the order properly. The amount of the food was not enough, too. I will never visit here again and don't want to recommend here to anybody.

Dear 더블린사람들, I'm very sorry for the inconveniences occurred to your experience at our restaurant and I have the feeling that the main problems were caused by misunderstandings.

I went there with a group of university students. I am Italian and I wanted them to try something typical of my country. We were looking for something amazing that was worth it the extra price, but we came out of the restaurant still hungry, not that excited and with a bill of 170 yuan each (most expensive dinner I...
