After being away from the USA for more than 2 weeks it was nice to have a great piece of pizza. Never did I expect to have such wonderful Italian food in China. Marco is the best at charming the customers while his wife cooks her heart out in their kitchen. Their new baby is beautiful and his dad is... More

Very friendly - the owners, Marco and his wife, are welcoming and friendly. Marco has lots of great stories about his travels and life in Shangrila, and in a town where practically no English is spoken by anyone and it is difficult to find information it was helpful to hear what Marco recommended in terms of getting around town.

We ate 2 times at Helen's pizza and we enjoy Marco stories about life in general and life in China. The pizza is great...good quality even for an Italian traveler. Also they have limoncelo - traditional Italian drink. I would like to have an italian espresso but Marco told me that they don't have this. Anyway, best pizza in China... More

I have to recognize that went there for a very very quick stop since i had to take a tour, so i had very limited time and asked for a pizza. The dough was delicious, thin, great flavor and the service was very quick as i requested. The pizza toppings were ok, probably a little bit of salt may had... More

We went three times to eat in Helen's Pizza, not only because it has the best Pizza, Calzone and Vegetarian Korean Food, but also because of the lovely présence of Marco and Ramonito. Also the cheminée is a great place to sit and enjoy a true Latte. Marco can also advise you in China and Visa Extension Issues. Kathrin and... More

We came here on good recommendations and were very disappointed. Not great in any way, definitely better options in Shangri-la.
