Very good choice

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

Buongiorno opened up in 2006 and we can call ourselves some of few Guangzhou expats that were first customers then and ongoing repeat customer till now.

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. The service was amazing, the staff spoke great English and provided us with amazing recommendations. Try... More

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.

My girlfriend and I decided to try this place based on the trip advisor reviews but were quite disappointed and left hungry due to poor service. We ordered a basic mixed vegetable salad and two appetizers of eggplant parmesan and sliced pork with pecorino and as well as main courses of mushroom ravioli and a pizza. The salad and appetizers...

dear Kris I have read your review and made my investigations on the case and have spoken with the dining room supervisor. She has shown me the bill and the orders. It’s not only our policy to wait until the appetiser have been finished to serve the main course, it’s quiet common in western restaurants. Sure, if customer take a... More

I looked for something like this Matriciana in Italy and Brazil and have never found something like this.the place is really Italian and you can feel the western culture in China. I'm sure that I will come back - travel 16h just to try this pasta again!
