Established in august 2006 in Guangzhou, Buongiorno Italian Restaurants is dedicated to bringing unique Italian flavours to the hearth of China. We are driven by passion, guided by tradition, rewarded by guest satisfaction. Our dishes are prepared with ingredients of the highest quality in a just balance of flavours. We strive for Excellent Taste. Therefore our Executive Chef Massimo Canzian personally sources, selects and utilises Prime Ingredients, most of them imported. We use pasta from Gragnano, Carnaroli rice, cold cuts and cheese from Italy, beef and lamb from Argentina or Australia, seafood from the Mediterranean Area and only from selected local fishermen. Italian Cuisine is our passion and we aim to transmit that through our dishes.

Dinner

Second time we came here. Had the tuna tartare and then the grilled salmon. They forgot my sidedish pasta with it and when they re-ordered it came 20 min late. Not done for an italian restaurant some pasta that takes so long. But the food was ok and had another good time.

During the CIFF Show we had 2 great dinners at Buongiorno and Alex was taking great care of us. Guangzhou is the worst possible city for fine Italian dining but Alex has made it a haven in the middle of millions of Chinese people, cars and pollution. It's as close to Italy as you can possibly get in these circumstances.... More

During my stay in China I was the first time at Buongiorno in February 2007 and met Alex. Since that moment, till I left China in April 2010 it really became my second home away from home. Even Alex made the difference; it was not only because of him. The food was always excellent, served in a professional way. The... More

I've been here a few times. Every time I go to Guangzhou, I always make sure that I dine here, either lunch or dinner. I've tried almost everything on their menu, from antipasti to main courses (I'm not so much a dessert person btw), and I only have good thing to say about them. All of their food reminds me... More

I followed that up with a calzone with mushrooms, ham, and artichoke which was out of this world crazy good. Then I decided I just had to go for a 2nd draught to finish the night off. I was really...

The food is out of this world! The atmosphere is perfect! The service was excellent! I had a really great time here, and it was the best choice in Guangzhou for a date.

The manager and head chef running this place are really friendly and both from Italy. I tried the parmiggiana as a starter followed by the mixed fish and seafood grill platter. Divine! We went back the next week and, since I love cheese, I tried the white pizza. I don’t regret it! Crisp crust and plenty of cheese which paired... More
