doing their best

We missed European food, so we came there. They are doing their best to be a good Italian restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was okay, but not quite Italian. However I'd recommend it, because there are no other restaurants like that in the city.

Dear Maria thanks for being our guest and taking time to review our restaurant. I am really pleased to hear you appreciated our service but at the same time not very pleased to hear we are "not quite Italian". I don't exactly know how you define Italian but let me tell you this: Buongiorno is Italian owned and managed, our... More

Lets just say we went there without knowing or recommendations. Place was full of people (not locals). Everyone seemed to enjoy their time in this restaurant. So we gaved it a try. Food was excellent, atmosphere as well. A bit pricey, but you dont mind to pay that in order to get really good and well made food. If you... More

For such a well rated place four of us were quite underwhelmed. For the pricing they charge it should be better. On a positive note they were accommodating even though we didn't have reservations. Prices were similar to a more costly place at home.

After seeing all of the glowing reviews for this restaurant I thought this was must eat territory. Has everyone lost their mind? Either those reviewing this place have been in China too long and are just happy to have some Western food or they have been completely unlucky with restaurant choices in their lives. This place is not good and... More

Dear Todd, I must say I was really surprised by such an unkind review. You ask if everybody lost their mind giving us good and excellent reviews, well maybe not, maybe the majority of our reviewers don't have same taste and opinion about proper Italian food as you. - Mozzarella was sour: maybe your are not accustomed to Buffalo Mozzarella,...

I wanted a high class, high quality dinner for a 2 year anniversary, so I looked up "most romantic restaurant in GZ" and this was TripAdvisor's #1 rank. However, this place is better suited for a business party than a romantic dinner. The food was only OK, the atmosphere was *not* romantic - it was loud and not private. And... More

I go regularly to Buongiorno whenever i am in Guangzhou and have never been disappointed. But be sure to book early as it gets very busy after 8:00pm! Food and wine are good and service is attentive.

A small and very cosy Italian restaurant in the center of town. I can say that the food is really authentic Italian and there is also a decent variety of wines. Service and prices are also good for what you get

When you go to Buongiorno, you think you have been transported into little Italy. Having been to Italy, and being that I am Italian, I would have to say that it is the most authentic Italian food that you will ever get in China.

We went there a bit late in the evening, the restaurant had only 2 tables of customers. We realized why after dining. The food is really far from what you can expect from this kind of price range. Service is a bit pushy and not nice. Atmosphere is quite good, although empty.
